I may have slightly gone a bit batshit crazy when the sky did this at Lake Aviemore last night. This is a fisheye lens image during the height of the display. Seriously. WOAH!

Thankyou so much for your batshit craziness - I did get outside (South Taranaki) and thought I detected a pinkish tinge to our sky but your (and others) pics are quite superb

Carry on Sir

You know that "famous" Wānaka tree? It's not as good as the upside down aurora tree I found tonight at my secret aurora perch!

So the government is changing the name of the Social Wellbeing Agency to the Social Investment Agency. Hmmm. I can’t help feeling that the idea we are all being defined in terms of “investments”, “outcomes”, “efficiencies”, or “savings”, is part of the problem. Capitalism is killing us and our environment. It simply isn’t working any more except for the few, the rich. There must surely be a day of reckoning coming soon.

I'm still loving Chewies comment from last night's Big Hairy News sesh re Premier House fallen down :

"She (Dame Jacinda) had a rave on her way out"

Fukn love it and more than that, hope it happened😂

98Percent, to environment

The fact that PVA is deliberately being put into food products, as stated in the article, is of particular concern to me, beside the fact that it is going into the environment in cleaning products. Where is the research that informs us it is safe to eat the stuff? https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2024-02-08/new-york-city-considers-banning-laundry-dishwasher-pods?utm_source=website&utm_medium=share&utm_campaign=copy

"A banana biodegrades within weeks, said Varun Kelkar, an engineering manager with the consultancy Alta Environmental. A plastic water bottle, on the other hand, takes around 450 years."

Here's another image of the famous Hoopers Inlet Boat shed after the storm in February 2018. The night was so special; still and calm with reflections to die for. This is a 2 minute exposure. On nights like this the scientist in me admires the star colours telling me about their temperature. The poet in me (?) absorbs the experience and thinks of words that work. #dunedinNZ #NewZealand #nightphotography #boatshed

Shane Jones used his Address in Reply speech in Parliament to launch an attack on policies enacted by previous Governments to address climate change.

It includes an astonishing revelation to disregard targets agreed to under the Paris Agreement, which aims to reduce our 2030 net emissions to 50 percent below gross 2005 levels.

Is $24bn a lot? Asking for a government

How many cigarettes would we need to smoke to make that up?

When Luxon gives tax cuts that wont benefit lowest paid workers. When he takes away Fair Pay agreements and introduces 90 day trials when workers can be fired for no reason.

Always remember, its because he cares deeply for workers.
