Another reason to question why we would want to invest in the expensive and risky coal industry

Exciting things are afoot in the energy sector. We may be on the verge of some important tipping points.

A pretty decent tear down the the recently released "independent" NBN cost-benefit "analysis".

http://www.businessspectator.com.au/article/2014/9/3/technology/what-nbn-cost-benefit-review-doesnt-tell-you
Nine months in the making the Coalition's landmark cost-benefit analysis still leaves many important questions unanswered.

Scott Ludlam sure has come out fired up this week! Makes total sense to kill this project just purely on a financial basis, well north of a billion "budget crisis" dollars for 4-5kms of road for a port that would appear to be heading to obsolescence over coming decades.

ABC review a few abuses of the English language over 2014: 

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-12-23/conscious-uncoupling-judged-worst-phrase-of-2014/5985132

Mixed metaphor of the year:

"Let's fix our roof while the sun is shining because we're on a course to hit the rocks and we have to fix it."

The Australian National Commission of Audit member Amanda Vanstone clarified Australia's "budget emergency".
The Plain English Foundation releases its annual list of the year's worst words and phrases.

Blunt and to the point. Well worth a listen for a little insight as to where this temporary Abbott government of ours continues to stick with the big polluters.

Wrote a little rundown on how I’ve used Kimono and a little Json transformation to automatically retrieve and display various metrics from across the web on a Geckoboard dashboard.
