carbon tax for a number of years, but it has not yet been implemented.
The first-ever nation to abolish its carbon tax was Australia in 2014, which
replaced it with a more limited so-called ‘emissions reduction fund’.

The interior of the house in Leenane represents continuity despite apparent
transformation. The walls are adorned with icons in niches, both sacred

in point. A 2009 article entitled ‘Turf wars’ in
Australian Golf Digest recounted the tense encounter that
emerged around a major development planned in the coastal village of
Hacienda Looc in the 1990s. The plans included a luxury beach
resort, a new subdivision, and a yacht marina. Four championship
golf courses would also be built, in the process demanding a ‘moulding’ of the hills

When the wine-producing profession has to be defended, they are at one, they
say, with the winery owners. In these times of crisis they stress the importance of
the ‘terroir’, against massive Australian and South American production. Over the

South Africa. The cultural identity that
has emerged through this articulation contains elements both of Gilroy’s
xenophobia and of Huggan’s neo-colonial paternalism. This is partly
because of the singular, variable political relationship between the two
countries from 1910 South African Union onwards. While remaining a
prominent part of the visual architecture of the historic empire – South
Africa House borders Trafalgar Square, along with Australia and Canada
– for many years South Africa stood neither fully inside nor firmly outside the political imaginary of the
expansive, leisure complexes. In this case, other facilities
– restaurants and places of accommodation, for
example – are found on site, rendering moot the need
for tourists to leave the facility. These are not uncommon,
writes Readman ( 2003 ), in the United
States, Australia, and the Caribbean. “In

golf in Asia has often followed this model, and in some
cases large-scale golf ‘leisurescapes’ have
