Minister Pavey flip-flops on embargo to create perfect storm of misinformation

Minister Pavey flip-flops on embargo to create perfect storm of misinformation

13 February, 2020

The decision to backflip on an embargo and waive restrictions on take in several tributaries and parts of the Peel, Namoi and Gwydir rivers doesn’t pass the pub test according to Member for Barwon Roy Butler.

“Minister Pavey pushes out information in the media about doing all she can to support communities through this drought then comes along with a decision like this that severely impacts on the mental health of everyone in Barwon.

“What Minister Pavey has achieved here is the creation of conflict between communities. Who does that benefit?

“What’s the point of creating this perfect storm of misinformation?

“I haven’t received a single call from anyone in Barwon that’s happy with this decision, what I have received are calls and messages from many people from farmers and irrigators, to people in towns and Aboriginal Elders asking what the Minister is playing at.

“There is a complete lack of transparency from Minister Pavey and the Department of Planning Industry and Environment about this decision.

5 Reasons You Need A Pre-Purchase Building Inspection

(How to save time, money and headaches)

Want to make sure you’re making the right choice when purchasing a new home? 

While a building inspection may seem like one of the more tedious tasks of buying a house, it can be a godsend.

Here's why a pre-purchase building inspection is a must in 2020.

NSW pushes back on AWU criticism over backing for LNG imports

Financial Review

AWU national secretary Daniel Walton late last week rounded on the government for granting the status of "critical state significant infrastructure" to a proposed $589 million LNG import project in Newcastlewhich will now enjoy a streamlined approvals process.

The Berejiklian government has already given the green light for a separate, $250 million LNG import terminal at Port Kembla, backed by mining billionaire Andrew Forrest.

The plans for the two import terminals are racing ahead as Santos's $3 billion Narrabri coal seam gas project, which could supply up to half NSW's gas requirements, remains locked in the state government's approvals process.

But Mr Stokes said the Narrabri project has "big potential impacts" on the environment, and that in any case the state is "best served by a competitive market with multiple sources".

Emily Newton, Jinnara Tyson chosen on NSW Youth Summit steering committee

Emily Newton, Jinnara Tyson chosen on NSW Youth Summit steering committee

Kids are growing up far too quickly as they see the affect drought is having on their families, says Walgett's Emily Newton.

Ms Newton and Jinnara Tyson from Dubbo are among two of the 11 people chosen to be on a steering committee for UNICEF Australia's NSW Youth Summit on living with drought.

As part of the steering committee, the youths help select about 100 young people aged 14 to 24-years-old who will attend the drought summit. The steering committee has also helped design the summit.

The aim of it is to collaborate with participants and experts to develop solutions for the problems young people are facing in the drought. The ideas will be presented to bureaucrats and politicians on the final day of the summit in October.

Ms Newton said most of her life had been spent battling against the drought. She's lived in Walgett her whole life until moving to Wagga Wagga to further her studies.

"While most of my friends were able to go away to the beach for their summer holidays, I would spend my holidays pulling dead animals out of the mud from the middle of dried up dams - this included livestock, native animals and pet poddy lambs and calves," she said.

"This became not only physically draining, but extremely mentally draining as it felt as though there was nothing more that I could do as my parents fought away debt to support me through the remaining years of my schooling."

The 21-year-old said youths were not spending their time being kids because they were seeing the affect of mental illness and financial instability.

"My main hope is that young people are able to come away from the summit with the life skills to be able to tackle the hardships they find themselves facing in the drought," Ms Newton said.

Ms Tyson grew up in Goodooga but now lives in Dubbo.

She said the drought was taking away youths' leisure time in rural communities and replacing it with work.

"I hope the summit will assist with providing extra support to the rural and remote communities that are impacted by the drought," she said.

The 24-year-old also wants to be a role model for other Aboriginal youths.

The NSW Youth Summit on Living With Drought will run from October 9 to 11. The applicants chosen by the steering committee will have all their travel costs covered.

2013 draft report warned that NSW towns would be left high and dry

2013 draft report warned that NSW towns would be left high and dry

The NSW government was warned by its own bureaucrats more than five years ago that reliable water supply in parts of the state could plunge by a third, with the situation now so dire that some of the largest regional towns face being left with no water within the next year.

The warnings were contained in a draft paper, Assuring Future Urban Water Security, which was dated December 2013 and commissioned by the Department of Primary Industries.
