I’ve heard (from an employee) that the federal Department of Environment is censoring their publications to make sure no document is released that contains the term “environmental refugee”. It seems that Howard and Turnbull don’t even want to be told that this could be a huge problem if they don’t do anything about climate change.

Re: Docs and contra. Drugs are small beer: look to devices as well – Pacemakers, artificial joints etc. Each is several thousand dollars a hit, all paid for by the public system. I know of a Doc who picked up two business class tickets to a conference in USA, just to attend – because he preferentially uses one brand of device.
