Introduction Australian society is often defined as egalitarian since the government equally accepts the diversity of population regardless of their personal backgrounds, socioeconomic status, health condition and political opinions. The society is supposed to attach importance to the fair civil liberties, protect local industries and provide every resident with welfare support, the opportunity of education and employment. However, after world economy crisis brought great global change in the 1980s, Australian political policy dramatically changed into profitability toward this competitive global economy. This includes the decrease in protectionism, privatization of institutions, further employment bargaining and also reduction of the subsidy
There are two important factors contribute to the ignorance of the Great Barrier Reef ‘s impacts. First, Mr. Hunt’s approval was taken into account for only the amount of CO2 emissions during
Ms. Gillard and Mr. Abbott are both former prime ministers of Australia. However, both of them have different strategies and methods beginning with moving Australia in the right direction. Even though, they both served at different times, nevertheless, they expressed their opinion openly about the job they were doing, Ms.
The Great Barrier Reef is one of the most beloved regions of the world but due to recent human activity in surrounding areas and subsequent sediment delivery, coral and seagrass habits within are being negatively impacted. Extending 2000km along the North-eastern Australian coast (Brodie et al., 2007), the Great Barrier Reef is a major source of income for Northern Australia and fuels the growth of local businesses. As industrialization in areas adjacent to the Great Barrier Reef lagoon have increased since European settlement (McCulloch et al., 2003), the need for more resources to compensate for human population has led to harmful land practices such as overstocking and deforestation for cattle grazing inland. These are causing a significant
The Australian Greens represent the progressive face of Australian politics and have formulated their policy positions with a reformist framework. Whilst the Greens origins and expansion are primarily a consequence of new social movements, splits within the ALP and its supporter base have enabled them to expand their political voice. The Greens can trace their origins to local party branches across Australia that have merged together to become Australia’s the nationally recognised party Greens Party. The Nuclear Disarmament party and the Franklin River campaign bought the Greens onto the national stage and revealed the power of social movements in elevating the Greens into a political force. However, the ALP’s failure to present themselves
The issues of the party are; same sex marriage, gender equality, discrimination and sex education. The Australian Sex Party has three distinct key policies.
The Labor Party stands for or its ‘driving mission’ is to apply democratic socialism in Australia. To me, I believe that means that the government has an important part in making sure that as a right of residency in Australia we all have health care, or being able to go to university without paying loads of money and going into debt. Also a government that is not lead by big money interests.
Great Barrier Reef (Environmental Lens) The Great Barrier Reef is a vast organic structure that has existed longer than man. It has always been present underneath the water surface near the coast of Australia, harboring many different types of sea creatures. Over the past few decades, the reef has slowly been dying. Humans have been negatively affecting it for a while now, although they may not have known it at that time. We, as humans, have the duty to correct our mistake and take responsibility for our actions by doing everything in our power to nourish and tend to the reef. Governments all across the globe have come together to collaborate and discuss what they can do to save the reef from extinction. Many solutions have been talked about and some have been put into place, but the effects of these won’t be seen until a number of years later. We must wait and hope that our ignorance up until this point won’t destroy an iconic landmark before we can try and save it.
The Australian Government acknowledge that ocean acidification is one of the highest risk factors to the Great Barrier Reef and have documented their plans to reduce this threat to the reef in the Reef 2050 Long-Term Sustainability Plan (Commonwealth of Australia, 2015). The Australian Government and the Queensland Government are working in partnership to fund projects and apply laws that will sustain this World heritage area. These projects include the Green Climate Fund which targets emissions reduction and the $2.55 billion pledge towards the Emissions Reduction Fund which creates positive incentives to cut emissions (Commonwealth of Australia, 2015). However, only time and the continual monitoring of the reef by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park will provide evidence of whether this funding will reduce ocean acidification to sustain the future of the
Human activity largely impacts the Great Barrier Reef, from tourists to wider world issues such as climate change humans are widely responsible for damaging many ecosystems. Tourism has both negative and positive effects on the Great Barrier Reef. The main positive is the revenue that the tourism creates for local
And since the environmental issues are directly related to population growth, human activities and associated developments, it is definite that Australia will still be encountering future environmental challenges. Even with the compliance to legislation acts and protection policies, Australia is at the forefront of environmental management but in fact were are leaving our future generations major environmental problems such as climate change, fresh water allocation and storage, marine fisheries, rapid growth in mining and coal seam gas development, biodiversity loss, land degradation and deforestation.
Australia’s oldest political party is the Australian Labor Party (ALP). Their history associates with the history of Australia’s democracy and labor movement. The largest trade boom in the history of the period of economic transition is Australia. The core Labor morals of opportunity and fairness. The core Labor has never been more pleased to establish the foster economic growth. The government has demolished the morals and economic growth. The Australian economy leads Labor through a time of significant global ambiguity, the Global Financial Crisis (GFC). The action Labor took with a broad-scale economic packages the economy did not stall because Australians faired exceptional than the highest in the world during the GFC. More than 200,000
The Effects of Global Warming on the Great Barrier Reef Introduction Coral reefs around the world are in danger. One of the causes is global warming, which has been increasing the temperature of the ocean water resulting in coral bleaching. This essay will focus on damage occurring to the Great Barrier Reef.
(Legal Aspects of Coral Bleaching) In 1998, the President of the United States Bill Clinton established the Coral Reef Task Force (CRTF) to protect and conserve coral reefs.(oceanservice.noaa.gov, 2013) What the United States CRTF is responsible for is mapping and monitoring coral reefs from here in the U.S. to teaming up with Australian organizations. That consists of researching the causes of coral reef degradation including pollution, overfishing, and finding solutions to the coral bleaching already done. As of the year 2000, NOAA is a principle member of the CRTF and has the responsibility to conserve coral reef ecosystem. “The NOAA partners with scientific, private, government, and nongovernmental organizations at the local, state, federal,
