Comment on Landholders facing the fracking onslaught by Evelyne Roullet.

@ Maureen Versteden: A lot of publicity has been done on the subject, including in this Newspaper. But there’s none so blind as those who will not see. There is no excuses for not knowing the pros and cons on the subject.

Coal seam gas, coal mines and Australian wildlife


The negatives outweigh the positives which is limited to more gas and a handful of jobs. Why make a longer list of environmental disasters?
At least 150 leaks, spills and licence breaches have occurred at the Ranger uranium mine between 1981 and 2009.
Mary Kathleen seepage of waters from the tailings storage area and evaporation ponds causes seasonal salinisation and impacts on the water quality of Cameron Creek during the dry season.
The Rum Jungle “Hell Hole”.
Based on Wet Season Blues from “The Uranium Hunters”.
The Atrocious Environmental Disaster.
Based on Uranium Mining in Australia from “Ground For Concern”.
Rivers and creeks in urban areas also face environmental issues, particularly pollution.
Victoria – Port Phillip (contamination – silt; sediment; toxins; household chemicals; garden chemicals; E. coli; litter; flotsam and jetsam).
Yarra River (contamination – E. coli; litter – 13 traps; logging; erosion; salinity).
Maribyrnong River (contamination – arsenic and heavy metals; litter – 1 trap).
Mullum Mullum Creek (contamination – E. coli; litter).
Murray River (salinity, erosion).
New South Wales – Remediation of soil and sediment from Homebush Bay on the Parramatra River by desorbtion and incineration.
Parramatta River (contamination – dioxins, arsenic, coal tars, chromium, lead and phthalates).
Darling River (salinity, erosion).
Murray River (salinity, erosion).
Cooks River (pollution, algal blooms)
Queensland – Bremer River (water grading F – lowest possible).
Brisbane River
Oxley Creek (water grading D).
Bulimba Creek (threatened species due to land degradation; pollution; litter).
South Australia – River Torrens (contaminants – E. coli; algal bloom).
The pros of fracking are the businessmen who want to make more money. The cons are that it contaminates clean groundwater and causes earthquakes that destroy people homes. It’s a horrible environmental disaster.

Alice students fire up for climate action
@ Not Peter Wilkins: “The sooner you boomers die off, the sooner the rest of us can get on with fixing the mess you’ve left.”
Think before you talk because those boomers are the ones who worked hard all their life without luxuries to build a life style you enjoyed today; they are the generations who invented the majority of gadgets used and abused by your generation:
• Mobile phone is good but do all the family members need a mobile phone?
• Motored vehicle is good but does every one need a huge 4×4 to drive every day in town? Even to go to a gym instead of walking or riding? Even go to school?
Instead of asking the politicians to do something about the climate change why not ask our local government to ban the cars in town? Make people use public transport.
• TV is good but do you need to have one in any bedroom instead of one in the family room?
Ha!! That’s right, there is no longer a family room because there is hardly any family as a unit because everyone spends their free time on the mobile on face book or other social outlets.
We have not created this mess but the ones who have misused and abused what we have created.


Ministers lash out at council over gallery
Namatijira Art Collector, I am in total agreement with you, however Napoleon had nothing to do with “The Nose: Sketches of the Sphinx” by the Dane Frederic Louis Norden were created in 1737 and published in 1755, well before the era of Napoleon.
However, these drawings illustrate the Sphinx without a nose and clearly contradicts the legend If the nose was gone by 1737 at the latest; its removal cannot be blamed on Napoleon’s troops, who visited more than 50 years later.
It is a pity that we do not have a Napoleon in power, because the gallery would have been a built long time ago.


Ministers lash out at council over gallery
Hear, hear, Trevor.


We won’t be there for His Royal Highness
As the public subsidises the trip, the public has the right to know.


Gallery statement by ministers mischievous: Councillor
Those two ladies do not realise that by insulting our elected Mayor and Councillors they are insulting the whole community.
Why can’t they admit they stuffed up the project by day one: What is an Aboriginal gallery without Aborigines’ approval?
