The Times has also learned that the organization, whose leadership is predominantly white, has been wrestling with complaints of workplace mistreatment of women and people of color. It was not immediately clear whether those issues were connected to the firing of Dees, who is 82.

Also Thursday, employees sent correspondence to management demanding reforms, expressing concerns about the resignation last week of a highly respected black attorney at the organization and criticizing the organization’s work culture.

A letter signed by about two dozen employees — and sent to management and the board of directors before news broke of Dees’ firing — said they were concerned that internal “allegations of mistreatment, sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and racism threaten the moral authority of this organization and our integrity along with it

So, Bambi - consider this: what if the scientists (and the kids) are right about the threat posed by climate change?

Ah yes, 'what if'...I like 'what if', one of my favourites.

I assume you mean 'man-made climate change'...because any other kind we can do nothing about.

Yet, you manage to dodge even what you thought I meant.

So predictable.

But no, Bambi, whether man made or mostly natural, as your clueless radio host believes, we still need to respond to it.

Indeed, if it is all natural, then our responses to the circumstances have to be even more immediate and more extreme! It means that figuring out ways to save the hundreds of millions of lives right on the coasts has to happen even sooner.

But not to you - you can't even figure out that its being natural is a bigger problem.

This is a nice breakdown of how Bambu’s culture has completely fucked his poor fragile head.

Oh dear. [At least he's put his name to it]

A nice breakdown...at least it's written in plain English.

Islamophobia is not "practically enshrined as public policy"...nothing could be further from the truth.
The direct opposite is true.

The silver fern symbol of New Zealand is projected on to the sails of the Sydney Opera House on Saturday. Australia has indulged in a ‘decades-long drumbeat of xenophobia and Muslim-hate, which has issued from some of the most powerful institutions in the country’. Photograph: Paul Braven/AP

In the period of the country’s enthusiastic participation in the War on Terror, Islam and Muslims have frequently been treated as public enemies, and hate speech against them has inexorably been normalised.


#####

Try "reluctant but necessary participation in the War on Terror".

In NYC 9/11, Aussie PM Howard, seeing and smelling first-hand the attacks on America, invoked the ANZUS Alliance, and as such Australia joined the Coalition Of the Willing.

The Head of State of Australia is Her Majesty the Queen of the United Kingdom.
After 9/11, Americans were in London as their homeland was burning.
She had her band play their national anthem at the palace gates.

Second, the 9/11 attacks drew Australia into the War on Terror in support of its closest ally, and geopolitical sponsor, the United States.

Australian troops spent long periods in Afghanistan and Iraq, fighting and killing Muslims in their own countries. The consequences of this endless war have included the targeting of Australians in Jihadi terror attacks and plots, both at home and abroad.


#####

'Jihadi'?
That's like...like, er 'Muslims'?

Yes, true, attacks and plots at home seem to be never-ending...with a conga line of Muslims convicted and jailed.
Hardly conducive to making 'Muslims' tops in the popularity stakes.

On 2 October 2015, Farhad Khalil Mohammad Jabar, a 15-year-old boy, shot and killed Curtis Cheng, an unarmed police civilian finance worker, outside the New South Wales Police Force headquarters in Parramatta, Australia. Jabar was subsequently shot and killed by special constables who were protecting the headquarters.

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-05-19/curtis-cheng-accused-guilty-plea-terrorist-act/8542490

A 19-year-old man who planned a plot that led to the 2015 death of Sydney police accountant Curtis Cheng pleads guilty to committing a terrorist act.
Mr Cheng, 59, was shot at close range in the back of the head as he was leaving work at the NSW Police Headquarters in Parramatta on October 2 that year.

Raban Alou is one of four men accused of helping radicalised 15-year-old Farhad Mohammad carry out the fatal attack.
Alou has now admitted to allegations that he planned the shooting, recruited Farhad and supplied him with the .38 Smith and Wesson revolver used to kill Mr Cheng.

'Their blood is halal,' Alou allegedly told undercover police

A committal hearing in Sydney was earlier shown a transcript of a conversation, in which Alou allegedly justified Mr Cheng's death, after the shooting.
"It's permissible, allowed," he allegedly told the undercover officer.

"Their blood is halal [permissible]."

This is the environment in which Muslims, refugees and immigrants have come to be understood as enemies of Australia. It may be an environment that has nurtured white supremacist terror.

#####

And it might not be.

Australia resettles more refugees via the UN per capita besides Canada than any other country.

Legal immigrants?  they make their own choices...do good, get to stay. Do bad, it could be bye bye. 
Don't like the place?...free to leave anytime.
Not many seem to go back home, so it can't be too bad.

Teenager who egged Fraser Anning speaks of being 'tackled by 30 bogans'

The teenager who smashed an egg on the head of Queensland senator Fraser Anning has spoken of being "tackled by 30 bogans" as Victoria Police says it is investigating the actions of the senator and his supporters as well as those of the teenager.

Senator Anning struck the 17-year-old twice after the teenager broke an egg on his head while he spoke to media at a political meeting in Moorabbin, in Melbourne's south-east yesterday.

Footage of the incident shows several supporters of Senator Anning tackling the teenager to the ground and restraining him in a chokehold.
Video circulating on social media shows a man holding the teenager in a headlock while a man can be heard telling him: "You are nothing but a weak human f--king being, you prick."


#####

Well there you go.
And a lightning fast left jab/slap the first strike was too.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX


A video of the teenager speaking after the incident has been posted to social media.

"Don't egg politicians," the teenager says in the video.
"You'll get tackled by 30 bogans at the same time. I learnt the hard way."


#####

It's called 'self-defence' and 'security'.
Here's an idea...don't egg anybody, you know...break the cycle of violence.
Doesn't look like that will happen though.

A fundraising page set up to collect donations to cover the teenager's legal fees and to buy "more eggs" had raised more than $25,000 by 4:00pm on Sunday.

here's the video;

Try ...attacker with the egg was jumped on by 'two bogans' not 30.
Attacker hit the senator from behind.."coward's punch"...he should be charged with such a punch/hit under "coward punch" laws.
Senator was quite entitled to hit him back, self defence.
As attacker started to move forward again, the senator hit him again.
All good.
That's what you get when you go around assaulting people, they often hit you right back.

No, jerk.

But you can make plans for the evacuation of those along the ocean shores, shore up and/or adjust dams so they are better prepared for previously unheard of or rare flooding, and set up better recovery systems for displaced persons. You can prepare more passive solar systems that are not dependent upon an electrical grid for areas that get cut off from power because of catastrophe that become more common, more powerful, or both. Lots of other intermediate steps to be taken to help humanity survive the increasing global temperatures and the attendant climate disruption - regardless of cause.

Or you can keep your head buried in the sand, like Bambu-ilk and his favorite radio-host, and pretend nothing can help with either global warming or other such things.

I provided the stats on that already, Bambi.

A propos of Bambi's egg attack news. 

This is weak science, since other correlations aren't carefully looked at.  e.g. did subjects mainly eat them fried?   Refined vegetable oils tend to oxidize with heat and that's also correlated with inflammatory diseases and vascular plaque formation.

There's good science behind Mel Brooks 2000 year old man saying he avoided fried foods!
