From an all-time peak of 61% in the 1950s, the number of workers who are in unions now stands at just 15%. Yet exploitation is rife. There are new forms of work that create an uneven playing field and put the workplace relations system under strain. So there are two problems: we need more unions standing up for workers and they need a better legal framework to draw on. That is the premise of the ACTU’s #ChangeTheRules campaign. But of themselves these changes won’t make unions... [More]

Past Climate Changes and the Lessons They Teach

Our climate is changing, with human influences the main, but not the only driver. We also know that climate has changed in the past, before any significant human involvement. The best example is the Ice Age cycle, which has dominated our planet for the past 2 million years. Can we explain this phenomenon, including the important fact that changes in carbon dioxide lagged the changes in temperature; the opposite of today’s changes. How well do we understand the processes involved,... [More]

A Night in Washington, D.C.

Washington is a bit like Canberra, a planned city with broad sweeping avenues leading to buildings of national importance. But it is much older, and has more than twice as many people, with many more places of interest to visit. Tonight we explore the city with a map in our hands; we visit many of these sights, then go a few km south to visit George Washington’s plantation at Mount Vernon on 4th July to share in the ceremonies and meet George himself, or at least his avatar.
