Park Bench Philosopher Four Key Climate Change Indicators Break Records In 2021: Four key climate change indicators – greenhouse gas concentrations, sea level rise, ocean heat and ocean acidification – set new records in 2021. This is yet another clear sign that human activities are causing planetary scale changes on land, in the ocean, and in the atmosphere, with harmful and long-lasting ramifications for sustainable development and ecosystems, according to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO)'s State of the Global Climate report. The report was released just ahead of the World Economic Forum 2022 Annual Meeting

The CMCA is a detailed study of the Careel marine environment, which is the most significant area of estuarine wetlands on the Northern Beaches.
Conducted over 12 months by the Careel Collaborative, the project will assess Careel on multiple layers: from the state of Pittwater’s largest stand of mangroves and endangered seagrass beds to the levels of macro and micro plastics in the environment and the impact of Careel Creek and stormwater outflows.
A group of scientists will be focussing on each specific layer of study - Mangroves, Seagrass, Plastics micro and macro and more. This will set up a strict survey protocol and timeline to achieve knowledge of the creek and bay.
This is a citizen science project and your help is needed alongside our expert researchers. You can get involved in whichever specific area you like.
To volunteer, contact Living Ocean: please send us your details via email: email@example.com or phone: 0410 374 333

Charles William Prowse, a coach proprietor who provided local transport from the ferry wharf in Manly Cove was the first licensee of what was then called the ‘Narrabeen Inn’ in 1886:
A publican's license was granted to C. W. Prowse, for premises situated at Pittwater-road, Narrabeen. LICENSING COURTS. (1886, January 22). The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954), p. 4. Retrieved from http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article13609631
Mr. Prowse and his wife Margaret were also running The Pier Hotel at Manly Wharf from 1883 to 1886 and later had 'Prowse's Refreshment Rooms' on the west side of Manly Corso. A keen cyclist, he was part of the Manly Cycling Club and later the Ferndale cycling club of Manly, as well as being active in the community. His son, 'Ossy' Prowse was a well known champion cyclist of that time as well - a few notes from the pages of the past are under Extras.
Mr Prowse transferred the licence to Robert Norris in 1887, a Narrabeen local, although there were clearly others who also had been given a publican's licence in the vicinity:
Narrabeen Hotel, Pittwater-road, from Charles W. Prouse to Robert Morris ... LICENSING COURT. (1887, March 11). The Daily Telegraph (Sydney, NSW : 1883 - 1930), p. 3. Retrieved from http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article236754960

Private Members Statement: Narrabeen Lakes Sailing Club
I congratulate and recognise the wonderful volunteers and members of Narrabeen Lakes Sailing Club. Since 1904 the club has provided a range of services to our community, including learn‑to‑sail programs and sailing racing. Anyone who is on the sparkling waters of Narrabeen Lagoon during the sailing season will see the sails of the Narrabeen Lakes Sailing Club aloft the lagoon. It was a wonderful privilege to attend the club's recent presentation evening and witness all of those people, particularly the young people, who have succeeded in learning so much more about the wonderful sport of sailing. Tragically, the clubhouse burned to the ground recently. It will be my privilege to support the club in its rebuilding efforts. In particular, I congratulate and thank Commodore Aymeric Cabuil and the wonderful Pamela Johnston for their amazing efforts in supporting the club.
All the winners of a terrible and terrific 21/22 season! Our presentation evening on May 8th was filled of joy and laughter despite a few too many last minute Covid cancellations that deprived us from some of our beloved members. Thank you to Cr Ruth Robins and NSW minister Rob Stokes and Bevan MacKavanaugh for honouring us of their presence. Can’t wait for 22/23!
