Having a Ball with Earth

THE Earth whizzed through Gladesville on Friday on its light-speed mission to remind earthlings how precious this planet is and why they should protect and preserve it.

The huge inflatable Earth is being relayed by environmental groups across Australia to rendezvous with a bigger house-sized Earth, the Climate Action Station, on the lawns of parliament House. On Friday it was the turn of Ryde Hunters Hills Flora and Fauna Preservation Society and the Ryde Gladesville Climate Change Action Group. After an hour at the Field of Mars in Gladesville it hurtled off to Hornsby and Newcastle.
