Setting a river on fire!! This is methane gas bubbling through the Condamine River in Qld being lit on fire. Origin Energy have coal seam gas wells nearby and local farmers say that the river did not bubble with gas historically.
Methane gas is 23 times more harmful to the climate than carbon dioxide, so all this gas escaping into the atmosphere is terribly damaging. Of course, gas may be leaking from the earth in other places, but you will only notice it when it bubbles through water. Has fracking or the depressurisation of aquifers underground caused this gas to escape? Fugitive emissions from fracking and unconventional gas are a major reason why there should be a complete ban on this toxic industry.
At a party a few weeks ago, listening in on a conversation about *jenny* (the chick who's loving her life after resurrecting from a shit divorce)
Me, "what's she done?" Girl 1, "well ever since she split up with *Darren* she's been a really shit mum, she gets babysitters most weekends and goes out a lot" Girl 2, "and she's already introduced her kids to her new boyfriend, which must be so confusing for them" Girl 1, "I deleted her off face book, I don't want to know about it" Me, "what does *Darren* think?" Girl 3, "I don't think he knows, when he left *Jenny* for that other chick he moved over to Queensland but he pays child support.. Like every week" Me, "right... Did you delete him off Facebook?" Girl 1, "no I didn't want to get involved" Me, "right"
So just to recap, in the same year that Jenny gets dumped by her husband for another women she also loses her friends because they don't think she handled her whole world being turned upside the way that she was "supposed" to and despite working full time to support them, living for them, doing everything in her power to keep them secure and loved, getting a babysitter on the weekend and a new boyfriend makes her a shit mum.
Darren on the other hand who dumped his wifey for another women and runs away from his kids completely and is probably drinking cocktails by a pool somewhere with some weird as fuck new mid life crisis hair style is still good because he slings them $170 a week.. without fail...
Fact. I don't hate *Darren*, I don't know the full story and I have made some pretty bad decisions myself in my time too. I am simply pointing out that If Jenny did what *Darren* did she would have no friends and be outcasted from society.
Fact. *Jenny's* kids are fine, I called her up and went to see them all. They rock, they think babysitters once a week or fortnight are totally exciting and they love her new boyfriend who barely comes over because *Jenny* is too busy basically winning at life as a single mum.
Fact. A divorce is the time that Queens need each other the most. Sadly I hear too many Queens talking about how they lost a lot of their friends during their divorces.
