Comment on For 1 Territory, no fracking means no fracking by Dr Who.

Hmm, I seem to remember a certain government (then in opposition) in Victoria saying the same thing before an election. They then paid out over a billion dollars to cancel the contract and have no road, all really to spite the previous government.
A bit like getting rid of the unlimited sections of road in the NT, i.e. you lot put it there so we will take it away, so there. Petty really.

Tourist perished: Has Coroner’s recommendation been followed?
No one should go hiking or trekking in this hot time of year without either a sat phone or emergency beacon, and ideally any time of year.
I have both for travel. Perhaps the NT Government could provide a low cost rental program?

1 Territory too fixed on opposition to fracking: Lambley
What, with all there big city rules and regulations? No, Thanks.

OK from environment watchdog for Ammaroo phosphate mine
John Hagan: I was led to believe this was on the edge of the GA Basin. Even if it’s not it’s an obscene amount of water to take every year. It takes 100s or thousands of years for that resource to be replenished.

NT the biggest climate change offender
@ Trevor: A great article. However re Thorium, the current favoured design is a Liquid Floride Thorium Reactor, currently estimated at least 40 to 70 years away.
They are small reactors that would need a contract to build many, 1000s … really not commercially viable.
Having said that I’m not against nuclear power in Australia, in fact I’d vote yes if asked.
