Today’s debate in the Brisbane City Council saw both sides of the chamber united against taking any sort of leadership role on the issue of climate change and energy.
Well, it's confirmed. Both parties aim to force us into a deadly nuclear future. Labour will exploit more uranium (did anyone else notice how happy Premier Peter Beattie was with the 'Yes' vote, despite his recent assurances that we in QLD will not be forced to accept more uranium mines?), export cancer and consign future generations to deal with toxic nuclear waste.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently announced its approval of meat and dairy products from cloned animals amidst widespread concern among scientists and food safety advocates. Despite recent consumer opinion polls showing that most Americans do not want food from cloned animals, cloned milk may soon be sold, unlabeled, in grocery stores across the country, and cloned meat will be next. Scientists say that clones may be inherently unhealthy, with potentially harmful consequences for animal foods derived from clones.

Meanwhile Prime Minister John Howard has laid out his nuclear plans for Autralia exposing the intent upon the promotion of nuclear power as a clean and green solution to climate change.
