Okay, here is some data...
about a new coal mine in Australia: the amount of coal that is to be exported through Abbot Point from Clive Palmer’s ‘China First’ mine in the Galilee Basin = 3.5 billion tonnes. The embedded emissions in that 3.5 billion tonnes are equivalent to the total emissions that Australia will produce between now and 2020. Meanwhile, perhaps in a parallel universe, the Abbott government is proposing a “direct action” plan that is supposed to reduce Australia’s emissions to 5% below 2000 levels by 2020.
Now you have this kind of data, what do you suggest you or I do with it?

We in India have believed since millions of years that the knowledge that is necessary to survive must be available free of cost to everyone, otherwise, how would we survive? It's time, we make all the necessary and authentic knowledge and authentic data available free of cost, patent free and copyright free, and it's free to all and is available for any point on the globe and beyond. Hope these points will be discussed in this important discussion.
What procedures can the community based organizations
access your grants which can release the rural people
from absolute poverty? We are sinking deeper into
poverty related challenge.
