Unprecedented Crime: a brief review Gippsland News & Views Peter Gardner

I have just read Carter and Woodworths Unprecedented Crime* (Clarity Press, Atlanta, 2018) about the massive crime of climate change. The book has a foreword by James Hansen and is divided into two parts Crimes against Life and Humanity and Game Changers for Survival. It is my intention to concentrate entirely on the first part of the book where the authors outline their case of climate crimes and against the criminals that perpetuate them.

Very early the authors make the point that the science of climate change has been clearly established since 1990 and companies like Exxon Mobil (of Bass Strait oil and gas fame) have been aware of this huge and life threatening problem much earlier than 1980. The main effect of climate change so far has been to influence the numbers and intensity of extreme weather events including hurricanes, heatwaves and fires causing immense damage and fatalities. They quote one source indicating that about 400,000 human fatalities occur each year as a result of climate change.

As well as Exxon about 1990 a range of fossil fuel companies and related organisations including the Heartland Institute, the Koch bothers and Peabody Coal, decided to protect their business and profits by denying the science, by creating doubt and spreading disinformation. In this they have been successful with the process of concerted action being delayed by nearly 30 years, and with an ignorant denier sitting in the White House. These deniers, the directors and individuals that made these decisions are the first of the climate criminals.

The authors note that climate change denial is a crime against humanity which is a deliberate act, typically as a part of a systematic campaign that causes human suffering and death on a large scale. (p.46) The systematic campaign of climate change denial which we have seen over the last 30 years has permeated our media and dominated the political process. Here the media is dominated and lead by News Corp whose influence extends across all media. Between them, and some misinformed and/or ignorant politicians, this influence has made it taboo for any journo to mention climate change in connection with a heatwave, with warming oceans, with bleaching of parts of the Great Barrier Reef, or with the current drought in parts of NSW and Victoria. It is a sorry state that, with one or two exceptions, the main reliable source of information on climate change is the internet.

Who then are the climate criminals? P...

In Search of Space, Journeys in Wild Places Mountain Journal

In the introduction to In Search of Space, Journeys in Wild Places, Ross Brownscombe points out that nature writing which explores the poetry and magic of wild places has not developed into a strong tradition in Australia. Compared to North America and the UK this is certainly correct, and true writers in this genre are few and far between.

This book is a great addition to the library of nature writing that Australia has produced. There is a review here.

MEMBERS of the South Gippsland Freestyle Karate Club starred at the ISKA (International Sport Karate Association) Victorian Open Round 3 held at the YMCA Leisure Centre in Epping recently.
The club had 17 members competing in various events ranging from Sumo, Sword Combat, Point Sparring, Continuous Sparring, Traditional Kata and Self Defence Demonstrations.
The day featured new and old competitors from the club who competed with respect and integrity.
The team was full of new, fresh and excited faces, many attempting something new for the first time, head instructor at South Gippsland Freestyle Karate, Renshi Mick Ognenovski said.
I am extremely proud of the effort, bravery and determination all members made during the event.
The level of respect and camaraderie was of a high level and I received many positive compliments from officials and competitors alike.
This is what its all about, this is what we strive to achieve!
Most importantly, our members/students who attended the event and gave it 100 per cent helped define our club as respectable and fair.
The club brought home 20 medallions including 10 gold, six silver and four bronze.
With the success of the day it puts the club directly in line to attend the Victorian titles at the end of the year with five titles to be defended.
If youre interested in learning Freestyle Karate, a free trial lesson is offered at one of the clubs locations.
Lessons are held at Leongatha, Korumburra and Foster. For more information head over to SGFKARATE.COM or contact 0432 481 146.
