Read or Condemn Yourself to Death by Ignorance

The newsletter for those prepared to look and see what is there.

No place for those who blindly bow

to the unholy alter of tyrannical authority.

Wednesday 30th May 2018


It was brought to my attention that if I have people to whom I mail that are in the EU, I need to be in compliance with the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) that came into effect 26 May 2018. This regulation covers a variety of measures designed to ensure information privacy, data security and timely reporting of data breaches. While I agree with their intent and do my best in these areas (refer, being in the US on some self-enhancement, I have not even read all the requirements let alone seen to their implementation.

I suspect these requirements affect less than a dozen people on my mailing list.

If you are are a resident of the EU, please drop me a line so I can respond apppropriately.

Here is a brief excerpt of what flittered through my mind or crossed my digital desk over the last week.

I hope you get something from it!

Sacrifice Zone

The totally avoidable tragedy of this nearly brings me to tears. I received this email and wanted to share it with you. Please watch it and help it go viral by sharing it with as many people as you can. You never know who will be the tipping point person!

I’m very excited to be able to share our new movie, Sacrifice Zone, with you. You can watch it online right now, for free!

Sacrifice Zone tells the story of the massive threat that coal seam gas mining (CSG) poses to our magnificent region out here in north-west NSW, and especially to our precious groundwater – the Great Artesian Basin.

I’m a farmer from Coonamble, and I’ve been passionate about protecting our groundwater for a very long time – because it’s literally the only permanent water for a large area of rural Australia. It’s our lifeblood – we couldn’t exist out here without it.

The threat to our water from coal seam gas (CSG) is real. And you can hear about it straight from the horse’s mouth, from people who are most at risk, by watching this wonderful film.

Nine years ago I learned about coal seam gas mining from a friend in Queensland, and I travelled up to the Darling Downs to see what was happening there.

What I learned from the local farmers, doctors and scientists was devastating. CSG in Queensland is already dewatering large volumes of water from the Great Artesian Basin and causing irreversible damage.

And the health impacts to the people living there, are horrendous. This industry must be stopped.

Now, Narrabri and the greater north-west region is at risk. Please take a minute to watch this inspiring movie and share it with your friends and colleagues. It

s’ free and ready to watch now.

Until next time,
dream big dreams,
plan out how to achieve them,
be continually executing your plans,
enlist people to your causes,
travel and/or read widely, preferably both,
all the while observing what you observe
rather than thinking what you are told to think,
think well of your fellow man,
take time to help your fellow man,
he sorely needs it and it will help you too,
eat food that is good for your body,
exercise your body,
take time to destress,
and do the important things
that make a difference -
they are rarely the urgent ones!
