Werribee Gouldiae's Blog

After a good run under the Yarra, the Drouin boys got away to an early start with some bird watching.


It was good to get some non-Drouin birds for a change but it did require some consultation at times.

A Baillon's Crake is always a good get in my book and here they always seem in better numbers and less shy than other places that I've ticked them.

That upcurved bill of the Red-necked Avocet makes them an easy species to identify.

Werribee is always good for the raptors and we had some good views of Black Kites and Brown Falcons in particular.

Woorayl hosts state qualifying event South Gippsland Sentinel-Times

WOORAYL Golf Club was the South Gippsland host of one of the 17 nine-hole district qualifying rounds of Sundays the Play 9 event, conducted by Golf Victoria.
This is the second year that this event has been played, and it is now establishing itself as a permanent fixture in the golfing calendar.
Qualifying events are played at club level, and players then progress to the district playoff. The format was changed from last year, and given that it was delayed in its release, there were exceptions granted to allow other players to participate with the district finalists. The top two stableford scores for the men and women not only receive a prize for the day, but also the chance to play in the State Final at Royal Melbourne on Sunday, November 4.
On welcoming the eleven men and six women, Golf Victorias Darren Cole, Regional Development Officer for Gippsland, announced that there would be an additional spot for both men and women at Royal Melbourne, which certainly added further incentive. He congratulated all those who had made it to the district event, and thanked Woorayl for hosting the day.
The morning was absolutely perfect for golf, and the course was in great condition, allowing impressive scores to be posted. In the ladies event, the qualifiers were Betty Williamson of Lang Lang, who was a clear winner with a fabulous 22 points (27), Elly Berryman of Woorayl, who was runner up with 16 points (16) on a countback from Marianne Leaver of Leongatha (27). The three qualifiers in the mens draw all posted a score of 19 points, so a countback decided placings, with Stuart Canning (14) of Foster as the winner from Tony Vanin of Foster (8) and Marcus Luscombe of Woorayl (11). If any of the qualifiers are successful in being in the top two men and women from the Victorian Play 9 final at Royal Melbourne, they will earn an all-expenses paid trip to Sydney. These players will participate in the national Play 9 event at The Lakes Golf Club on day three of the 2018 Australian Open, and a win here would see them off to the 2019 British Open. Good luck to all qualifying players!

Ladies
THE Country Teams golf competition was played on Monday, October 1, to Wednesday, October 3. The district team of South Gippsland Ladies were in action at Keysborough on Monday and Cranbourne on Tuesday, as they competed in the yearly event.
Having won Division Three last year, they were promoted to Division Two, and the goal set by team manager Anne Walker was to maintain this ranking or improve on it. The five-team round robin draw saw South Gippsland players faced with a challenge, as they had to play two 36-hole days, and rest on the Wednesday whilst the other teams played. A team of ten players were selected, with seven participating in each round. These players were: Ali Adams, Wonthaggi, Anne Walker, Wonthaggi, Andrea Thorson, Meeniyan, Dot Christie, Meeniyan, Faye Morris, Phillip Island, Jacqui Baker, Ph...

Stopping Climate Change Is Hopeless. Lets Do It. Mountain Journal

Auden Schendler is well known to many skiers and riders as being a key figure in snow industry efforts to move towards sustainability. He is the Vice President of Sustainability at the Aspen Snowmass resort in Colorado.

Just before the IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5C report was released, Auden co-authored an opinion piece in the New York Times with Andrew P. Jones. Given Audens pivotal role in the snow community, I thought it was worth sharing some excerts from it here which underscore the political challenge we face if we are serious about resolving the climate problem. The full article is available here.

Auden and Andrew say:

On Monday, the worlds leading climate scientists are expected to release a report on how to protect civilization by limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, or 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit. Given the rise already in the global temperature average, this critical goal is 50 percent more stringent than the current target of 2 degrees Celsius, which many scientists were already skeptical we could meet. So were going to have to really want it, and even then it will be tough.

The world would need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions faster than has ever been achieved, and do it everywhere, for 50 years. Northern European countries reduced emissions about 4 to 5 percent per year in the 1970s. Wed need reductions of 6 to 9 percent. Every year, in every country, for half a century.

Wed need to spread the worlds best climate practices globally like electric cars in Norway, energy efficiency in California, land protection in Costa Rica, solar and wind power in China, vegetarianism in India, bicycle use in the Netherlands.

Wed face opposition the whole way. To have a prayer of 1.5 degrees Celsius, we would need to leave most of the remaining coal, oil and gas underground, compelling the Exxon Mobils and Saudi Aramcos to forgo anticipated revenues of over $33 trillion over the next 25 years.

And while the air would almost immediately be cleaner and people healthier, the heartbreaking impacts of climate change flooding in London, New York and Shanghai, as well as in Mumbai, India; Hanoi, Vietnam; Alexandria, Egypt; and Jakarta, Indonesia, to touch on just one consequence would continue for decades, regardless of emissions cuts, because of the long life of man-made greenhouse gases already in the atmosphere.

Of course, there is growing awareness that the IPCC report, dire as it is, probably radically under estimates the real impacts of climate change. This is for a range of political and process reasons (incl...
