Comment on ‘China visit focus should be on renewables, not fossil fuels’ by Phil Walcott.

Very well articulated, Jimmy … as usual.
We most certainly do need to focus on the present and future development of abundant renewable energy opportunities. For Alice Springs (the capital of Central Australia as described by the Chief Minister) to become the destined Solar Centre of Excellence in the NT, efforts must be strengthened to create that reality.
I fully understand that to segue from a reliance on fossil fuel energy to those that are renewable is a delicate tightrope for Mr Gunner to walk. He is a smart young man however and should, in cohort with others, find ways to better achieve the switch sooner rather than later.

Let’s see where this goes. If Jacinta loses Lingiari, she’ll be parachuted into the role. If she doesn’t, will The Elf make a comeback?


Starting young in multi-culturalism
Such an impressive program driven by devotion, compassion and integrity.
We most certainly are a rich tapestry of collective and inclusive community spirit as evidenced by the wonderful interactions that these kids embraced.
Congratulations to Suzanne and her team for providing these kids with some wonderful experiences. The stuff memories are of.


NT should become the Switzerland of the Southern Hemisphere
I can relate to your frustrations, Kelvin. Thanks for your insights and perceptions. From a personal position, I concur with your views regarding Delia Lawrie.
YES … unfortunately the lacklustre leadership from a number of the parliamentary and bureaucratic circles fail to project any long-term vision beyond election cycles into our Territory’s future. Devising plans isn’t enough. We need visions to underpin them. Singapore and China had visions … and look where they are now. They made “boundless possible” a reality rather than simply a mantra.
We can only hope that there are enough people within those ranks, and those from the commercial and industrial sectors, who are prepared to look at ways that we can collectively enhance the Northern Territory’s present and future.
We have the people, we have the capacity. Now all we need is the will to realise some remarkable opportunities.


Not us and them. Just us, says Cr Melky.
We need to remember that this town is not “black and white”. We are a vibrant multi-cultural commUNITY with over 35 different nationalities represented. Time for inclusion of those groups as well.
