Mr Abbott playing with gun control laws for more votes in the Senate.

"This month Liberal Democrat senator David Leyonhjelm forced the Abbott government into a partial retreat on an already trumpeted ban on imports of a new rapid-action shotgun...."

Time and money runs out for carbon capture and sequestration (the oxymoronic "clean coal").

"The trouble for the coal industry is that the market has already decided. Over the past 15 years CCS has received all the (expensive) support it is ever likely to get from politicians and investors, and aside from some pilot projects and a very special case or two, it has not delivered anywhere near the number of projects that were anticipated."

The option of building more coal-fired plants is looking more remote nowadays compared to this possibility in 2008:

'CCS is essentially a “delay and fail” strategy by the coal industry. By selling the idea of “clean coal,” the industry delays an energy transition away from fossil fuels, while setting itself up for an eventual failure of the entire CCS project. By the time that the failure is clear and obvious, there will be no alternative: the coal plants will have been built, the money invested. We’ll burn more coal, and to hell with the climate.'

A "budget emergency" in FY 2014, a 35 billion deficit in FY 2015, so the solution is to ... cut income tax?

"The Coalition will use its plans to cut personal income taxes to further pressure the states to think of new ways to raise revenue after they failed to agree to NSW Premier Mike Baird's proposal to increase the GST to 15 per cent."

Treasurer Joe Hockey has pledged that the Abbott government will take personal income tax cuts to the next election, ensuring they are a major poll issue.

Same old, same old from Mr Hockey:

'... Certified Practicing Accountants (CPA) Australia's Alex Malley has lashed the Government for what he called pre-election "fiscal giveaways".

"The Treasurer appears to be caught in a cycle of restating the problems rather than rethinking the solutions," Mr Malley said.'

Mr Abbott's NBN (Not-a Broadband Network) ends up costing more than ever. Wait till we have to upgrade to an all-fibre network. :(

"Cost blowouts associated with the complexity of the project and delays as NBN Co renegotiated Telstra's role last year are expected, however, and they will rekindle political debate about the government's decision to replace Labor's fibre to the home network with a hybrid network that includes fibre to the home, fibre to the neighbourhood node, and hybrid fibre that was laid two decades ago by Telstra and Optus."

"hybrid network" isn't that the same as "mishmash" ?

Darn green groups, how dare they use the law to protect the environment! Don't they know that environmental law is only for the benefit of multinationals and windmill hating senators?

Galoshes and stilts will be the footwear of choice by 2100.

'The agency says that we've seen 7.6 cm of global sea level increase since the year 1992 — with large regional variation — and a further rise of 91.44 cm has likely been "locked in" by warming that has already occurred.'

NASA is undertaking an "intensive research effort" ;into the problem of rising seas brought on by global warming, the agency ;announced Wednesday. And it will include satellite mounted tools ;so accurate that "if they were mounted on a commercial jetliner, flying at 12,192 ;metres, they could detect the bump caused by a dime lying flat on the ground," as agency earth science director Mike Freilich put it Wednesday.

So much for the Coalition's faster and cheaper NBN.

It is so frustrating and sad that Mr Abbott and Mr Turnbull simply could not put the national interest ahead of their spiteful vendetta to destroy everything proposed by the previous Labor government.

"Now the CEO of NBN Co, at the briefing accompanying the release of the company’s annual financial figures, has said that the Coalition’s ‘multi technology mix’ NBN will cost at least $46 billion and may cost as much as $56 billion – EXACTLY the same figure that Malcolm Turnbull’s handpicked experts had estimated the Labor FTTH NBN would cost."

OPINION (actually, it's fact). They can’t hide it any longer. The lies, the deceit, and the sheer ineptitude of it all were always going to come...

The first commodities for space mining might be elements to enable more activity in space.

"The vision I have is that in the short term, we concentrate on extracting hydrogen, carbon, nitrogen, oxygen—volatile materials from nearby asteroids to make the propellants and life-support materials."

Region coding is for your own good, right? Coz foreign ink is bad for your printer.

"Nearly every major printer manufacturer is in on the scam. HP saw an opportunity to increase incremental sales and staked out this territory in 2004. This brave new world of customer-screwing was followed by Lexmark, Canon, Epson and Xerox -- none of which saw anything wrong with illogically restricting ink cartridges to certain regions."

https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20150815/02480731963/your-toner-is-no-good-here-region-coding-ink-cartridges-customers.shtml

HP's support web site:

"HP customizes some products and cartridges to meet specific local customer needs. During your initial printer setup, the printer automatically set itself to accept cartridges specific to a country or region...."
