CLIMATE FOR DEBATE: Sandy Creek reader David Macilwain asks who is really to blame for the flooding Murray River and our unusual weather patterns.Who is to blame?Is it really fair to blame the Murray Darling Basin Authority for the floods below the Hume Weir?

Even if water had been released earlier, the excessive rainfall last week would probably have wrecked their plans.

To find who was responsible for this “biblical flood”perhaps we should ask the weather-men who forecast it.

They could tell us that unlike in biblical times, this was no “Act of God”, but the inevitable result of the unprecedented disturbances to atmospheric and oceanic systems caused by “Acts of Men”.

While the evidence for irreversible climate change caused almost exclusively by the burning of fossil fuels is reinforced by every abnormalflood, cyclone or bushfire, no effective action to slow down or stop this dangerous activity has yet been taken, despite all the brave words from government.

So shouldn’t we be blaming them for their failure, and getting the fossil fuel industry to share some of its enormous profits and pay for the damage that has been done?

David Macilwain,Sandy CreekPicnic with a differenceWe take great pleasure in inviting you to participate in the first Border Pride Fair Day, taking place on Saturday November 12, from 10am through to 4pm at Noreuil Park, Albury, all under an umbrella of celebration, fun and information.

This exciting and vibrant event is jointly hosted by Albury City Council, ACON, Hume Phoenix, SWAG, Albury Wodonga Health, Albury Wodonga Aboriginal Health Service, Gateway Health and Murrumbidgee Local Health District, with Hume Phoenix being responsible for organising and liaising with stallholders.

The Fair Day seeks to address issues and health disparities around social isolation, mental health, sexual health and service access awareness with the local LGBTIQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer/questioning) communities and HIV positive people and is modeled on the highly successful Parramatta Pride Picnic, now in its 10th year.

The picnic event encourages community, business, service provider and NSW/VIC emergency services stalls, and will deliver entertainment, games and performances. It is estimated attendance will be in the region of 500 people of all ages.

Hoping to see you in November.

Toni Johnson, Hume Phoenix Albury-WodongaBill a negative NancyI am tired of all the criticism and negativity from Bill Shorten and others like him that we hear so often in the news, especially in regards to the same-sex marriage and the plebiscite.

Many of those so passionate about gay marriage are stirring up trouble by putting ideas of hate in the minds of sensitive people, causing them to be upset and react in a bad way.

Some time ago, after a letter of mine was published in The Border Mail I had a phone call from a very angry man who thought I hated him because I opposed same-sex marriage.

I hastened to assure him that while I didn’t agree with him, I certainly did not hate him, and if I could have, I would havegiven him a hug.

After that we had quite a cordial conversation for 5-10 minutes.

People who follow the Christian tradition are kind and caring, they strive to love God and their neighbours and obey the golden rule of “Do unto others as you would they do to you”.

Bill Shorten should stop putting forth ideas of hate into people’s minds if we have a plebiscite.

Surely we can be decent, civil and respectful about this issue.
