Prime Minister Harper here in Canada has the exact same playbook.
"The Abbott government has been caught red-handed using national security, our independent police and security agencies, and the fear of terrorism itself, as tools for its own gain. Once or twice might be contestable, but a clear pattern has emerged revealing a government too ready to stoke community fear and then parlay its 'tough' policy responses for its own aggrandisement."
- Canberra Times

The Abbott government has been caught red-handed, shamelessly ;using national security, the credibility of independent police and security agencies, and the fear of terrorism itself, as tools for Liberal Party gain.

Bookmarking this one. Here it is +Alex Burton 
I occasionally will write a long article. This article is, I have to say, longer than even what I would write. But it explains a tremendous number of really important things extremely clearly: power production and use, the history of cars, how these things all fit together, and how Tesla is trying to change that. There's no way I could give you a useful short summary, because the point of this article is that, by the time you're done reading it, you'll understand all of the things well enough that you can join in very serious conversations about them.

So don't feel compelled to read this at one sitting -- but this is an article you may want to bookmark, and read bit by bit, because by the time you reach the end, you'll have learned a lot.

There are 7 million cu miles of ice on greenland and Antarctic combined so max sea level rise is about 240 ft, not 300m?

We need it to go even faster..
Solar power now provides roughly 1% of the world's electricity. It took 40 years to reach that milestone. But, as they say in tech, the first 1% is the hardest. You can see why in this chart below. As solar prices drop, installation rate rises. As the installation rate rises, the price continues ...
