I am involved in various Moreland-based community groups including Sustainable Fawkner where I blog on local and sustainability issues, Climate Action Moreland and Moreland Bicycle Users Group. I am also a member of Friends of the Earth, off and on, since 1976, and wrote the contribution on the Rides Against Uranium in the 1970s for the Friends of the Earth Australia book to mark the 30-year anniversary of FoE – 30 Years of Creative Resistance.

Welcome to the new Australian senate where Malcolm Roberts, from Pauline Hanson’s One Nation Party was elected the 12th Senator for Queensland with just 77 Primary votes, according to the AEC. As the second candidate on the party group ticket he received ticket votes after Pauline Hanson was elected, and preferences from other parties and candidates.

Roberts is a confirmed climate change denialist and conspiracy theorist, active in the Galileo Movement here in Australia and aligned with the US based Heartland Institute. I wonder if most people who voted for Pauline Hanson’s One Nation Party realized who they elected on the ticket with Pauline Hanson.
