Newer streetlights are usually orange / yellow light, because (as I understand it) our eyes are more sensitive at those wavelengths.
So why are car headlight beams still white? The idea is to see more, so shouldn't they be the same orange / yellow light as streetlamps?
Murdoch has been seriously wounded in the UK, and cannot now command political power in the way that he previously enjoyed.
So now, despite not actually being Australian any more (he gave up his citizenship to become a US citizen), Australia is pretty much the only place left where he wields significant power, due to News Corp's ownership of the majority of the commercial media in this small market. So now Murdoch has crowned his victory (deposing a decent government whose main flaw was a megalomanical ex-leader after a 3 year smear campaign) by protecting News Corp's cable TV interests as well.
It was always too good to be true - a government program that would really empower people - in an age of neo-liberal so-called free market economics (what we really have is subsidies for corporates and plutocrats - not a "free market"). Once again, the wowsers have won, and Australia can go on with being the backwater dirt factory it has been told it should be.
A pox on Murdoch and the Coalition.
One thing that many who believe that climate change is a "scam" or a "conspiracy" have in common is a political outlook that says that lefties, socialists, hippies, greenies etc. are just plain WRONG about everything, that their entire world view is basically incorrect.
So it really is hard for them to accept that the lefties and the greenies might be RIGHT about something - which seems to lead to ever more bizarre denials.
The corollary of this is that people with this kind of viewpoint tend to believe that climate change is a stalking horse of the left, to de-industrialise the economy, to promote their "business-hating" ideals, etc.
Sometimes it's obvious that you want or need a change. And sometimes it's not.
So when you can't decide about what to do, it's generally a good idea to ask yourself what it is you could be doing where you could make the biggest contribution, help other people the most, and create the most value for *others*.
Once you remove yourself from the centre of the equation, the answer will probably be much clearer.
