Maybe they are working on the premise that we will meet our carbon emissions target by then, meaning Greta and co have succeeded in taking us all back to pre industrial environment, ie living in huts and eating nothing but what we can grow without machinery. No cars on the roads anymore  >:D
We've waited 45 years to do this. Now our life will be complete!!

Agroecology

https://www.cfact.org/2018/07/22/agro-ecology-campaign-enshrines-primitive-agriculture-and-malnutrition-as-human-rights/

Agroecology is above all political. It rejects virtually everything that has enabled modern agriculture to feed billions more people from less acreage. It rabidly opposes monoculture farming, hybrid seeds, synthetic/non-organic insecticides and fertilizers, biotechnology … and even mechanized equipment like tractors!


In 2012, Kenya banned biotech (GM or GMO) food, even as highly successful pilot projects were doubling and tripling crop yields for Kenyan and South African farmers, and ending plant diseases that had devastated papaya and cassava crops. Now, even as locusts wipe out staple food crops, rabid NGOs are pressuring Kenya’s Parliament to ban over 200 pesticides that have been approved as safe for crops, wildlife and people by Kenyan authorities and by regulators in the USA, Canada and other nations.

Reports in media that Vic Gov wants to sell off VicRoads....

Since when does privatization work for us... can you imagine rego fees if it was privatized????

I don't know about privatised but it is on the cards for VicRoads to be continued to be split up as it hs been over the last few years.

Through the '80s the Country Roads Board (who built and maintained arterial roads) and Transport Regulation Board (who looked after licencing, registration and heavy vehicle enforcement) were amalgamated under the umbrella of VicRoads.

Over the last few years Vicroads has been split up into a variety of sections. Regional Roads Victoria (who look after construction and maintainance of regional arterial roads). Major Projects (who look after construction and maintenance of metropolitan arterial roads). Transport Safety Services (heavy vehicle enforcement) have been swallowed up by the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator. Vehicle engineering sections and havy vehicle access teams now come under the Department of Transport. I have assumed any Road Safety sections will be pass3d across to TAC.

The Rego and Licencing are the last section left under the VicRoads banner. Ex work colleagues that I used to work with at VicRoads have been saying for a year or moe that they expect the R and L group will be swalled up by a new Services Victoria department under the umbrella of Department of Justice. I doubt this section will be privatised, but that doesn't mean lots of electronic transactions won't be administered by a private company.

Makes sense. R and L group is almost a pure transaction business anyway. I won't speculate on licence testing. And I won't speculate on what happens when you can't get a sensible answer out of the online system, or a chickout chick/dude at Services Victoria. Possibly similar to what happens now. I doubt anyone would argue the skill level at the counter has reduced as staff have been replaced over the years, and new personnel do more and more brain ded transactions without the opportunity to perform many other functions. A bit like an apprentice who oly ever changes oil and filter on new cars in a dealership.

That photo was the reason they introduced number plates. ;)

Or they go back to the original theory of all cars being preceded by a bloke walking along waving a red flag & ringing a bell ???

Quite a few years ago in Vic they set a target of <237 deaths (Vision 237) by I think 2020. They came to that number through modelling.  If cars keep getting better, roads get better, drivers get better (yes I know the irony) we should get to X. They then reduced X to a hard to achieve, but still achievable target to make all the partners involved in road safety to work even harder.

That was scrapped after a while as it still required 237 to die. The only acceptable target is Zero. 
A date needs to be put on it as something to work towards.
What about suicides?  They aren't counted in the road fatalities (except the innocent 3rd party)

Victoria had over 1000 die in the early 70's. We are about a quarter of that with many times more cars on the roads and greater travel distances.

The Australian Council of Trade Unions has called on the Morrison government to provide an 80 per cent wage subsidy to save jobs during the coronavirus outbreak.

The goverment was tell people if they were already receiving benifits, "not to clog the system", they(centrelink) were overwhelmed with people who already are on their system receiving a benifit.
This whole event has just shown how stupid a lot a people are, they are not listening to the advise given.
People are still wanting to go on holidays at Easter WTF.

It's stupidity.

all im saying is there are 1000's of people being flicked from their job right now. All logging on to get assistance from the gov. pretty sure the systems have not been arcitected with enough capacity to handle this amount of increased traffic. Not everyone, on the system is a dole bludger.

Everyone should be given a mandatory social security number if you don’t already have a TFN. When you ring in, you enter the number and if you are already getting benefits you are put in a really long waiting list with a message explaining the reason you are in that list. If you don’t know your number you are also put in a long waiting list. Or when people dial in ask if they are receiving benefits, if they say no and they are lying stop their payment for a week.

I'm not doubting the unprecidented high number of people who have lost their jobs has had a huge load placed on a system that has never been stressed as it is now.
But, there is a huge amount that are clogging the system for no reason.

Frank Zappa - Dumb All Over Lyrics:

Whoever we are, wherever we're from
We should've noticed by now, our behavior is dumb
And if our chances expect to improve
It's gonna take a lot more, than trying to remove the other race
Or the other whatever, from the face
Of the planet altogether

They call it THE EARTH, which is a dumb kinda name
But they named it right, 'cause we behave the same...
We are dumb all over
Dumb all over, yes we are
Dumb all over, near an' far
Dumb all over, black an' white
People, we is not wrapped tight

Nerds on the left, nerds on the right
Religious fanatics on the air every night
Saying the Bible tells the story
Makes the details sound real gory
About what to do if the geeks over there
Don't believe in the book we got over here

You can't run a race without no feet
An' pretty soon there won't be no street
For dummies to jog on or doggies to dog on
Religious fanatics can make it be all gone
I mean, it won't blow up an' disappear
It'll just look ugly for a thousand years...

You can't run a country by a book of religion
Not by a heap or a lump or a smidgen
Of foolish rules of ancient date
Designed to make you all feel great
While you fold, spindle and mutilate
Those unbelievers from a neighboring state

TO ARMS! TO ARMS! Hooray! That's great
Two legs ain't bad unless there's a crate
They ship the parts to mama in
For souvenirs: two ears - Get Down!
Not his, not hers, but what the hey?
The Good Book says: "It's gotta be that way!"
But their book says: "REVENGE THE CRUSADES!!!!..."

"With whips an' chains an' hand grenades..."
TWO ARMS? TWO ARMS? Have another and another
Our God says: "There ain't no other!"
Our God says: "It's all okay!"
Our God says: "This is the way!"
It says in the book: "Burn and destroy....."
An' repent, an' redeem, an' revenge, an' deploy
An' rumble thee forth to the land of the unbelieving scum on the other side
Cause they don't go for what's in the Book
An' that makes 'em BAD
So, verily we must choppeth them up
And stompeth them down
Or rent a nice French bomb
To poof them out of existence
While leaving their real estate just where we need it
To use again for temples in which to praise OUR GOD
"Cause He can really take care of business!"

And when His humble TV servant
With humbld white hair and humble glass an' a nice and brown suit
And maybe a blond wife who takes phone calls
Tells us our God says it's okay to do this stuff, then we gotta do it!
'Cause if we don't do it, we ain't gwine up to hebbin!
Depending on which book you're using at the time...
Can't use theirs... it's all lies...... Gotta use mine... Ain't that right?
That's what they say -- Every night... Every day...
Hey, we can't really be dumb, if we're just following God's Orders
Let's get serious, God knows what's his doing!
He wrote this book here, an' the Book says:
"He made us all to be just like Him,"
So... If we're dumb... Then God is dumb...
An' maybe even a little ugly on the side

DUMB ALL OVER – a little ugly on the side
DUMB ALL OVER – a little ugly on the side
DUMB ALL OVER – a little ugly on the side
DUMB ALL OVER – a little ugly on the side
DUMB ALL OVER – a little ugly on the side
