On 14 December 1988, 4ZZZ was taken off air and forcibly evicted from its UQ premises by the then student union executive, headed by one Victoria Brazil. The move prompted many previously apolitical students to take a firm stand against the move and to rally support for the station. While Zed was not to return to the premises its' volunteers had helped hand-build, unprecedented community support saw the station live to fight another day.
Scientists want more protection for coral reefs
According to Professor Hoegh-Goldberg of the Global Change Institute at University of Queensland, rising ocean temperatures and acidity could outstrip the ability of marine species to survive. A recent paper published in Nature Climate Change, has reported that the current actions found in the National and international policy are not enough to with stand the impacts of the carbon dioxide emissions. Mr Hoegh-Goldberg has suggested the use of shade cloth, electrical current and genetic engineering to approach marine management. The shade cloth could be used to protect corals from heat stress, which leads to bleaching and death.
