Comment on Henbury carbon farm: more than watching the grass grow by Hal Duell.

We’re becoming locked into a vicious cycle.
Our need for power to fuel a global enterprise of some 7 billion (and counting) humans is becoming – wait for it – unsustainable.
We burn hydrocarbons, and the pollution is poisoning the seas. If they warm to a certain point, the water becomes a dead zone, and there go all the fish.
We go fracking for gas, and the pollution is poisoning our fresh water aquifers.
And we remove productive land from our food supply chain, and what, please, will we be eating.
Not fish, anyway.
And not flesh from Henbury either, apparently.
Soy extracts from the quickly disappearing Amazon? Yummy!
Tiger-by-the-tail, anyone?

Any update from Alex Nelson on the heritage application for the Anzac site?

Cemeteries could be turned into parks
Something to think read, to think about, to cherish: “Quiet City – Walking in West Terrace Cemetery” by Carol Lefevre.
It was first published in 2016 by Wakefield Press and is one of the most engrossing histories I have ever read.

Whoever you are (but clearly someone ashamed of your own name?), please rest assured that the financial wellbeing and accountability of CAAC in no way upsets my peace of mind.
I follow stories in Alice Springs News Online because together they form the mosaic that is Alice Springs. Sometimes these stories are tasty and sometimes bland. Just saying.
