Keep asking climate change questions
There is no doubt that the climate is changing (Climate change is an established fact, GP April 21). It always has and always will. The question is, how much humans are responsible for. Phil Leighton Daly criticised Allan Jones "for 10 years of deceit". Well, everybody's entitled to their opinions, unqualified or not. But whether or not climate change is serious or calamitous will not matter anymore if and when renewables become cheaper than existing forms of power generation. That day may come sooner rather than later with the innovation of newer and better technologies, such as hydrogen etc. in conjunction with market place economics.
But in the meantime we need people such as Allan Jones to keep asking questions; to keep the bastards honest. To paraphrase Einstein, "listen not to those who have all the answers, but to those who ask the questions".

Road safety action plan
I'm taking the time to write this today regarding the intersection on Finlay Road and Hume Street at the workers arena.
I have serious concerns about this intersection and the constant near misses I witness. I work at Daniels Auto Group right on the corner and twice in the last week I have had two customers coming to the dealership near in tears as their cars nearly got collected by oncoming traffic. I myself have had my own incidents at that intersection, specifically turning from Hume Street into the dealerships, as there is no turning lane and people aren't watching the road. I have nearly been rear-ended more times then I can count and trucks don't have enough time to put their breaks on or have to swerve into the left lane. It's just incredibly unsafe. There have been a LOT of accidents on this intersections and now that the council is doing the Road Safety Action Plan I hope my email is taken seriously and something needs to be done about this intersection. It is not safe and is incredibly frightening.
