Comment on NT cost of living $1700 a week by Dr Who.

@ Peter: I can’t think of any state that has reduced car rego, power, water etc when the mining royalties come in.
I have friends in WA and the previous government went on a spending spree, now the state is in a massive debt problem and fees / costs are going up.
The NT I’m guessing would be no different, apart from the fact our water would be at serious risk from fracking.

NT cost of living $1700 a week
Exactly Frank, The majority of people living in the NT are against fracking, it’s just too dangerous to play around with our underground water table, conventional, ok but NO fracking. You cant ever Un pollute the underground water we all rely on! Why don’t the CLP get it?

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.

Only when the Great Artesian Basin is depleted and life cannot exist here any more will these greedy fools realise that you cannot eat or drink money.


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.
