All Coal Seam Gas Mining around Australia to cease and Mining Entities held Accountable!
We want all "Coal Seam Gas" exploration ceased and all Well's closed in Australian Territories and States and we also want all Fracking ceased in all Territories and States around Australia as well. We want these ceased due to contamination of our precious Waterways eg: Streams, Rivers, Lakes and underground Aquifers as well as Lands. We also want the deadly substances that have been used to be responsibly cleaned out of the Waterways, Aquifers and the Lands! We are aware of proven evidences showing Environmental damages on the Lands and in the Waterways that the “Coal Seam Gas” Well’s and Fracking have done and the impacts they have had upon all Wildlife Fauna and Flora as well as Live Stock, Domestic Animals and Humans! We do not accept that destroying the Environment of our Country and even our very Livelihoods and Lives is an acceptable loss for us to sustain so that an Energy Group and/or Mining Company can make a short term gain while we suffer long term loss! We want a full Enquiry with an in-depth investigation into "Coal Seam Gas" exploration, the contamination caused and damages done with an in-depth Analysis on all Well's sunk by Mining and Energy Groups, Companies and Operator's by an Independent Investigations Team. We also want another full Enquiry with an in-depth investigation by an Independent Investigations Team into “Fracking”, the contamination caused and damages done with an in-depth Analysis into all aspects of “Fracking” for the same reasons as outlined above for “Coal Seam Gas”! That the Investigators in both situations are to have total full Forensics access to every Chemical used, all Processes and all Documents held by any Entity in Governments, Mining and the Energy Sector’s and that full disclosure must be made to the Public for the Public Record and future Court proceedings! We want charges bought against anyone found to have caused damages including all Individuals in the Mining Companies, Energy Groups and Operators involved in the destruction and damages. In reference to the damages done we want the Mining Companies, Energy Groups and Operator's to be held accountable financially and we want them to pay for ALL costs to repair the Lands, Eco-systems, Waterways including Aquifers. We want any Public Servant/s and Government Minister/s held accountable for any wrongful actions that they took in the granting of Permits/Licences to mine for "Coal Seam Gas" and/or allowing “Fracking” that caused damage to our Eco-systems, Waterways and Aquifers, Lands, Flora and Fauna in and around Australia when they knowingly did so! What is happening as you read this....."Coal Seam Gas" exploration and “Fracking” is poisoning our precious Water Systems and Lands including our Food Tables and Food Belts in Australia. Farms are being forced to close down in many areas. Towns are unable to use water supplies. People and Animals are getting sick and some have died as a result! Many Scientists and Qualified people have come out and spoke about the damages done so far by it not only in Australia but Overseas as well! Clear evidence has been released and is still being released showing the damages with the gases and contaminants coming up from and through the ground killing Flora and Fauna in the immediate vicinity of the Well's and Fracked areas. Prime Farming Lands have been shut down due to contaminants being too high with losses in Livestock and Produce. In Far northern Queensland the Well’s up there have caught fire and have been burning ever since and we are now being told that the fires underground are so hot that they are burning at a temperature similar to a Volcano’s Magma/Larva Not only are we now becoming aware of damages being done here in Australia but also there had been clear evidence from other Nations that showed that it was wrong to allow it in the first place and our Governments ignored the threats from it! It has come to our attention the Environmental Agencies and Ministers are not even interested in coming clean about it as they've ignored calls and requests from so many including from reporters, concerned citizens and professionals as well. To clarify...The Mining Companies, Energy Groups and Operators are pumping toxins into the earth and in some areas the toxins have already begun to come back up and are not trapped under ground as they lead us all to believe. It is a matter of time before the majority of the chemicals in all the other wells start coming up as well! Again there are clear evidences that dictate to us all that we must shut them all down! Action is required urgently and should not be delayed, as any further delay may cause irreversible damages and in fact we may already be too late to save some of it! Delaying actions will effect life and cause sickness and even death to Flora, Fauna and Humans. Please sign this petition and let’s get it all stopped and cleaned up! Yours Sincerely, Christopher T McGrath (Your Australia)

STOP funding schools that teach creationism: Education is degraded by pseudo-science.
To: Simon Birmingham, Education Minister;cc: Malcolm Turnbull, Prime Minister;cc: Tanya Plibersek, Shadow Education Minister: Science has provided staggering advances in medicine, technology, and across every sphere of human advancement. But science has been undermined by fixations with pseudo-science - the anti-vaxxer lobby, denial of climate change, and fundamentalists who claim human evolution is a "hoax". More than 250 private schools across Australia reserve the right to teach Creationism as part of their curriculum. This practice must stop - it is intellectually damaging to children, it indoctrinates ideas that are patently false, it disables the capacity of young minds to 'think critically', and it prevents a scientific understanding of the natural world. A Nielsen poll in 2009, reported in The Age, showed almost 25% of Australians believe "the biblical account of human origins". Creationists claim the Earth is just 6,000 years old, that Noah's flood is historically true, and humans lived with dinosaurs. We don't need this taught in schools! Current funding for private schools is $12 billion - we urge you to withdraw the relevant portion of these grants from all schools which teach Creationism. Save taxpayer dollars, and stop funding pseudo-science to vulnerable and impressionable children. Schools teaching the Bible as the "inerrant Word of God". see https://www.plainreason.org/featured/petition-change-org/ More details and free eBook on this topic at: https://www.plainreason.org
Petition to Melcolm Turnbull, Australian Liberal Party
Keep marriage pure
Don't be fooled by the trickery , everybody in Australia already has equality, men, women, gay, straight, married or not married. What rights do married couples have that de facto couples don't? This debate has nothing to do with equality at all . The Lgbti minority should not be allowed to bully and vilify the majority with their evil plans to destroy one of the most important building blocks of a moral and God fearing society. They say nothing will change for the rest of us but that's just another lie . If you remove a cornerstone the building falls. Marriage is a God designed biblical institution . Its bad enough that political correctness, popular opinions and so called progressive culture is erroding Godly principles and morality from so many facets of our lives and society in general. We must stand for something. Its time for the majority to start speaking up. Evil is only victorious when good men do nothing.

Mike Hosking As Moderator Of Leaders Debate, No way!
Each week morning and night Mike Hosking waxes lyrical about how wonderful our nation is doing under the National regime. He attacks opposition parties with his blinkered view of the World. If you need prove just waste a minute of your life and watch a Mike's minute, he rambles on unfettered dribble that shows the man lives in a fools paradise. For Hosking to front such important events as political leaders debates is an afront to our democracy. Winston is correct it should be hosted by a real person, not some highly paid puppet of the national party. No longer should good Kiwi citizens tolerate the influence of msm shills influence in political election outcomes. Mike Hosking is a National party media puppet. Please sign this petition and leave a spray about this egotistical muppet. https://i.stuff.co.nz/entertainment/tv-radio/95637316/mike-hosking-will-present-the-tvnz-election-debates-again
Petition to Kevin Kenrick- CEO of TVNZ
Replace Mike Hosking with an impartial presenter for the TVNZ election debates!
TVNZ- Replace Mike Hosking with an impartial presenter for the TVNZ election debates! John Gillespie, Head of News and Current Affairs at TVNZ, confirmed this afternoon (10/08/17) that Mike Hosking will once again be presenting the TVNZ election debates as he did in 2014. Mike Hosking is well known on New Zealand television and radio for being an overtly biased broadcaster. In 2014 several political leaders accused Hosking of ignoring the role of impartiality that he was supposed to play, and being biased towards National and John Key in particular. Previous Labour Party leader Andrew Little stated that Hosking made "no attempt at objectivity" and Green Party Leader James Shaw stated that it was "pretty obvious" that Hosking was biased in his presenting. Winston Peters is also quoted as saying that the "quality of public debate suffers" when Hosking presents because of his open bias towards the National Party. Hosking is regarded as a polarising broadcaster by the New Zealand public. A Stuff.co.nz poll from 2015 found that 74% of people think that Mike Hosking is clearly politically biased. In 2016, a petition was organised by lawyer Dan Wayman to remove Hosking from public broadcasting at TVNZ. This petition gained 14,000 signatures in just over a week. While it is easy to change the television channel when Hosking is on television, all New Zealanders have a right to watch the election debates without being influenced by the opinions of the presenter. The job of an election debate presenter is to serve a public function; they are in place to facilitate debate between political parties to inform the general public- not to push their own agenda. The New Zealand media is a powerful force when it comes to election time. The media is how most New Zealanders inform themselves about New Zealand's various political parties and policies. The public cannot effectively inform themselves when the information being provided through a medium such as election debates is one-sided. According to a Radio NZ article, TVNZ assured in 2014 that Hosking will be conducting the debates "with absolute political neutrality." Despite this assurance, Hosking continued to be biased towards National throughout the duration of the debates. The New Zealand public should not be expected to decipher whether Mike Hosking is biased in his moderation of debate and his line of questioning. Instead, New Zealanders should be able to focus on the content of the debate instead of worrying whether the presenter is impartial. It is disappointing that TVNZ is trivialising the election debates by choosing a presenter who is biased but likely to gain more viewers. An election debate should be taken seriously by the broadcasting authority and not used as an opportunity to draw a larger audience. The role of presenter in the election debates should be filled by someone who is impartial and can facilitate debate without being dictated by their own political opinions. To quote Mike Hosking " Given I am not a journalist I can, like most people, say what I like." This is why we need a neutral political reporter- someone whose job it is to uphold the integrity of journalism and impartiality instead of using their air time as an opportunity to push their own political agenda. Sign this petition to remove Mike Hosking from the role of presenter in the TVNZ election debates to respect the impartiality of a presenting role, preserve the integrity of journalism, and the principle of democracy in New Zealand.
