Topic: aust govt
- Prof Stuart White - UTS - Institute of Sustainable Futures (!)- Prof Peter Newman - Director of the Institute for Sustainability and Technology, Murdoch Uni- Dr Mark Diesendorf - UNSW - Institute of Environmental Studies UNSWOh and you might notice absence of Jeff Angel which may be to do with the passover clash, or my determinedpublished analysis of collaboration with ALP Govt, not least on energy assets sale.
- Oh, and on sustainability, the inestimable Prof Jamie Kirkpatrick in Tas, who is so very very smart and so greatly independent of thought.
Also I think in that particular group there ought to have been a world class mountaineer like Tim McCartney Snape or Brigitte Muir or one of several actually because we are very strong as a country in this respect. Sports I hear you cry, but actually they are become cross cultural experts from all the travel and experience of montane environments which are melting first meaning dangerous climate change.
Lateral but still true, as per my report of great Blue Mountains Climbing festival report 2007 here:
Of similar comment would be some of our awesome Antarctic scientist types - can’t think of the name but we have some beauties.
Very lastly I read worthy Sam(antha?) Mostyn’s background on Trust of Australian Museum - 2003 - ex staffer of Paul Keating, and BA/Llb - say no more eh? (The ALP stodge factor? We shall see.)

Delegates to the 2020 Summit have been announced. It looks pretty grim. Of the approx 100 names in the 'environment' group, there are very few known greenies. Does anyone know anybody on this list who might speak up for the forests? Hugh Possingham and Ian Lowe are possibly the most prospective.
It is also possible to make a submission directly to them.
Contributing a submission to the Australia 2020 Summit is a way for all Australians to be involved in bringing the best ideas forward to address Australia’s long term challenges.
All submissions will be made publicly available on this website and will be presented to the Australia 2020 Summit participants to stimulate discussion and ideas about addressing our future challenges.
Individuals, schools, groups, and organisations are invited to make submissions.
You can contribute a submission online, by downloading a form and mailing it, or by contacting the toll free number to have a form mailed out to you.
Submissions must be received no later than 5:00pm Wednesday 9 April 2008.
Written submissions are limited to 500 words per topic and should focus on one of the ten identified areas. You may contribute a submission in one or more policy areas.
Submissions will be collected by the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, which is acting as a secretariat for the Australia 2020 Summit.

And I've been around these issues for over 3 decades. I wonder how many are ALP hacks?It would be useful if someone could google a bunch and dig a bit of dirt to show how inappropriate they are to be on the country's 'sustainability climate and water' group. There's dirt on at least two so far.-----------------
These are my comments on those I know for what its worth (See list below)
Most lack an environmental perspective - indicative of the deired outcomes.
I expect each will read a prepared statement and at the end of the process we will have a report that someone is already writing...
Not really worth the greenhouse gases spent getting there.
Anyone here going?Population, sustainability, climate change and waterHe was head of atmospheric science in CSIRO in 2000 - he may be one who lost his job or left during the final grim years of climate change denial.Professor Ross Garnaut Male VIC

Mr Greg Bourne Male NSWWorked at ACF when I was there - a lobbyist with a glancing but not detailed understanding of forest issuesMs Penelope Figgis (AO) Female NSWFount of knowledgeProfessor Timothy Flannery Male NSWWonderful Judy who has campaigned on Tassie's forests, Lake Pedder, stood for the Greens, has been Chair of orgs such as Aust Ethical. Probably the best advocate we could haveDr Judy Isabel Henderson Female NSWNow which bit of the topic is she addressing?The Hon Roslyn Joan Kelly Female NSWWas Property Council in ACT, actively involved in Green Building Council of Aus - don't think she knows much about forestsMs Romilly Madew Female NSWWell, he is ACT actually - Director of what was Centre for Resource Development ANU (Fenner School now?) I have hear d him speak effectively about climate change science and issues.Professor Will Steffen Male NSWVal writes about sustainability issues with a focus on the social side of things. She would be sympathetic of forest issues in the broad sense without knowing the detail.
