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.

Scepticism ends, panic ensues

Dang, looks like this global warming thing is much more serious than we thought.

Somewhere in one of those ice-caves there's a workshop devoted to identifying racism in all its forms.
Unfortunately the terms racism and racist are now defunct, having been abused so extensively as to have no residual currency beyond the inner-suburban peace-blanket crocheting collectives, and certain broadsheets, which are, incidentally, no longer flavour-of-the-month with the NSW Planning Minister.

Monday 21st: another day, another ABC interview with John Connor of the Climate Institute. Gosh, do you think it's really an institute or a lobby group? No mention of the melting ice caves, but, right on target for the big meeting, they were highlighting the asserted fall in emissions post-GFC, according to another impressively titled body the International Energy Agency. Oh, and just in case there have not been enough brainwashing media events, there'll be a further report from the IEA before Copenhagen.
Call me cynical, but the well-oiled mechanics of media messaging (I'd even call it intervention) priming voters with the daily grab and then using these thinly apprehended but regurgitatable views to beat up pollies with "public opinion" are there for all to see.
