The chains of pain...

...not the epic from Bob Geldof, but Climate Chains, which are being used by the green left to shackle capitalism. Rattle those chains and view the trailer of the about to be released movie ...

The proposed Cap-and-Trade legislation would have a far-reaching impact on your standard of living and give government a portal into every aspect of your life.

...and an update (H/T and thanks to A Western Heart) on the enquiry into the Australian bushfires...
...Residents in one of the areas devastated on Black Saturday were not allowed to clear highly flammable, noxious tea tree on their land because it was classified as native vegetation by the local council, the royal commission into the bushfire disaster has been told. Peter Wiltshire, who suffered serious burns and damaged airways trying unsuccessfully to save his home at St Andrews on February 7, said yesterday the tea tree, known as burgan, was "extremely flammable and lets off gases in heat". Wildfire from burning burgan on a neighbouring property created enough radiant heat to cause a horsefloat at one end of his house to instantaneously burst into flame.But the local Nillumbik Shire Council stopped landowners clearing burgan without applying for permission, Mr Wiltshire said. "They call it native vegetation and we are not allowed to clear it without a permit. It is probably the most noxious and flammable material. It really is a pest and dangerous." ...more here...
