Our mission

Are you that special person who - weary from trudging the endless superhighways - just longs to camp next to a glorious oasis of the mind? Do you desire to explore new frontiers, splash in shared ideas, fill your belly with the refreshing fruits of inspiration, and bask in the gentle rays of fond reflection?

Well, you can fuck right off. This, my friends, is not that place. This place is... The ShadowLands.

The future bullshitters

Tim Flannery 2004:

"Speaking last night at the State Government's Sydney Futures forum, Dr Flannery warned of a city [Sydney] grappling with up to 60 per cent less water."

Tim Flannery 2005:

"Leading environmentalist Professor Tim Flannery...predicts that the ongoing drought could leave Sydney's dams dry in just two years."

Research based on IPCC modelling 2008:

"Rainfall across the Sydney basin will increase by up to half, with a drop in winter rainfall cancelled out by heavier falls in summer."
