There's nothing to lose by experimenting with renewable energy A while ago I asked what types of people will lead our great energy transition. Well, some of them seem to be living in the north of Melbourne. Last month I watched as Victoria’s Climate Change Minister, Lily D’Ambrosio, announced $1 million for a hydrogen refuelling station to power zero-emission local government vehicles. The money, from the New Energy Jobs Fund, will sit alongside $1.5 million that Moreland Council is investing over three years.... Pubdate: Mon Sep 18 05:23:12 UTC 2017

Let the law reflect the commitment of all couples As a solicitor, I worked at the Inner City Legal Centre on "gay night" every week for some years in the '90s. A man in his late 50s came to talk about the parents of his late partner of 25 years.
