Ban Bunnings Sausage Sizzle – Vegan Power!

Why Ban Bunnings Sausage Sizzle?

Ban Bunnings sausage sizzle say the Vegans. What? This is a case of a minority group having a louder voice than the majority.

The headlines are full of tales of misery and woe plus the positive aspect of the horror bushfires. Australians coming together to help their fellow man. There are many untold acts of bravery, compassion and heroism in the bushfire crisis.

Vegans

Then jumps up the vegan contingent. They want the Bunnings sausage sizzle banned. They say it contributes to the bushfire severity because meat comes from cows. Cows fart methane. Methane is a greenhouse gas.

The amount of meat eaten over the years has reduced with more people choosing to be vegetarian. So it stands to reason there are fewer cows. Back to Bunnings. The amount of meat in a sausage is as low as 30%. All proceeds from the Bunnings sausage sizzle will go to those in need after the fires.

I respect the right to choose. You can be a vegan if you want. But do not use the suffering and pain of others to further your cause.

Dog Attacks On The Rise — Keep Your Dog Safe

With dog attacks on the rise responsible pet owners need the knowledge to keep their pet safe.
 
There was a Dachshund killed by a Staffordshire Terrier in Melbourne this week. Each dog owner blames the other for the outcome. The horrific death of the Dachshund.

It is reported that the Dachshund got out of its enclosure and ran up to the Staffy that was on a lead. It is a fact that the circumference inside the radius of a lead is viewed by your dog as its personal space. Should the dog be aggressive, it will defend this “territory.”

But, the pet owner should control the actions of their pet.

In this case, the outcome would have been nowhere near as severe had the Staffy owner not dropped the lead, but pulled the dog away.

Owners of powerful dogs need to be in control at all times and must have the strength to pull their pet away. At least have your dog muzzled.

Looking at the blood residue at the scene shows that the Dachshund was easily defeated. It most likely lay on its back surrendering only to be torn apart.

The fact that the Dachshund escaped its enclosure is sad as it would be alive today had it not done so.

Dog-on-dog attacks are happening across Australia more often than people think.
 
There are things that may help prevent dog attacks.

Climate Change And Sea Turtles

Climate change Puts Sea Turtles At Risk

You will be aware that Sea Turtles lay their eggs on land. Climate change is threatening their existence. Even though they can live up to the age of 150 years. The average is a 50-year life span.

climate change

Sea Turtles drag themselves up the beach away from the shoreline to bury eggs in the sand. Six to eight weeks later, the hatchlings dig their way up to the surface and face a perilous journey to the ocean. Seagulls and Skuas know when the hatch takes place. They wait for an easy dinner when the baby turtles surface.

The hatchlings that make it to the water are still not safe. One in One Thousand hatchlings are likely to survive.

Now a new fear has arisen. The Scientific Community and Nature Conservation bodies are in agreement. Climate change will cause rising sea levels. Add the increase in severe weather events and the outcome is clear.

The waterline will rise. The beaches will erode. These factors will destroy the nesting sites of the Sea Turtles. Then, in turn, the population will drop. There will be fewer hatchlings, yet the same number will die on the way to the ocean. And so the population dwindles. All due to climate change.

Why Bushfires Are Predicted To get Worse

Why Bushfires Are Predicted To Get Worse Than Ever

Bushfire

Why Bushfires Are Predicted To Get Worse. Bushfires are being fuelled by drought. The humidity levels drop which causes the understorey to dry creating more fuel. Native Australian gum trees start to drop leaves attempting to survive the lack of water. This is partly why bushfires are predicted to get worse.

Lightning strikes provide the spark for many bushfires. Sadly, many get started on purpose by idiots. Australian bushfires can get out of control fast.

Climatologists predict that as climate change occurs globally, there will be more bushfires. These fires result in the devastation of crops, wildlife, stock, and homes. Some wildlife will survive by fleeing, but there will be nothing to graze on after the fire. No flowers to produce nectar. No nesting materials. No water to drink.

Bleak Outlook

Further forecasting shows that weather events will become more extreme. Areas that get monsoons will get wetter whilst areas with low rainfall will become drier.

Events know as ‘Megadroughts’ will be frequent. A Megadrought is a drought that lasts over thirty years. The risk of a Megadrought occurring in the US will be 80% by 2099.

Bushfires generate their own weather patterns. There may be a rush a wind ahead of a bushfire even though the local winds are low. This rush of wind speeds the growth of the fire and contributes to the fire becoming uncontained. In other words, even if the wind seems light, fires can advance faster than expected.

Petrol Companies Rip Us Off, ACCC Sues Google HAH!

See How Petrol Companies Rip Us Off

petrol companies rip us off

So the ACCC sues Google, what a croc. Petrol companies rip us off. What we want, especially in WA is for the ACCC to show some guts and stop the petrol companies from doing this.

Petrol prices have two habits. One is to have one day in the week when they are 5 or 6 cents cheaper and then jump up by that amount the next day. Then slowly reduce to the lower price again.

There is no logical reason for this. We motorists and bike riders would love to see the price remain steady for at least a week at a time.

The second habit is for the price to always go up the instant crude oil prices rise but conversly to take weeks to revert to the lower price once the crude oil price drops back down.

Petrol companies rip us off like this now as they have done for years. We must have forked out hard earned cash to the tune of millions of dollars over the years Australia wide.
