Comment on Storage major obstacle for going mostly solar: TG by Janet Brown.

For how long did we hear global warming, and then climate change became the new phase due to the fact no one could deny it.
Yes! Climate does change and that is a reality.
What is also a reality, is that we also have times when we are closer to the sun. Times when our axis varies due to our orbit.
So many natural factors that we have no impact on. Nor do we want to. All this is ignored as not relevant evidence base by the climate change warriors who seek to blame mankind for it all.
Yes, we are responsible for pollution.
So logical thought or thinking people would see that we need to put effort into more efficient vehicle motors and power plants that reduce pollution. Logical thinking people know that carbon in the atmosphere is good for rainfall and growing crops.
Trees breath in the carbon and breath out oxygen. So if that is the reality why not plant more trees or better still ensure forests are not destroyed.
But alas, money is the root of all evil. So like those who destroy forests anywhere on the planet for money, so to do the agitators for climate change charges. Money is the answer for effort to stop it. Reality lesson, nature is its own driver. And it has no use for money. A lesson in the stock market is clear when it comes to carbon credits it is all fresh air.
We have environmentalist for decades demanding nature stays natural and constant and we have and enjoy many beautiful natural areas.
They have voiced their anger at concrete jungles encroaching further and further out. And destroying our natural environment.
And these same people are supporting and pushing wind and solar plants that consume vast land mass. And the elephant always in the room is batteries. Yes, technology is advancing. And yes there is life expectancy for solar panels and wind.
So what then if in technology we come up with a way to produce power without solar and wind and without cost. What happens to all that unusable non-recyclable product? Where do we store batteries until we can dispose of them environmentally!
Like so many things that are pushed on us here on earth we are subjected to instant fix without the logic or research. And in just about all of these we do not factor in outcomes and future issues.
I am all for keeping our planet healthy and happy. And balance between life and life styles. I fully believe that environmentalist are the greatest threat to our planet and the people on it.
The pollution of batteries every bit as toxic and radiation waste, and detrimental to land and water contamination.
Yet radiation waste is controlled by strict routines and safety structures. This is not the case with batteries.

Planning another plan
We need planning to be the role of the town council, not the NT government from Darwin.
How can we plan for our future development when there is no plan.
A town plan from the early 80s is lost.
Until we have a town plan on development any master plan is a joke. And to my knowledge the master plan does not include development areas for our growth.

Senator Scullion will not contest Federal election
Identity politics. It has to end. Politicians need to be representing the people. The Territory.
So far I have seen none of this from those putting up their hands.
They are only talking at election time. Voters are confused on their rights. As a voter we have the right to demand elected members who will work for a better Territory. Not a better Darwin over the rest of the Territory.
Our Federal ministers have the role to work for the entire country. As minsters elected by states and territories into a Federal seat they should be ensuring the best of Federal funding for their electorate. They are elected to represent Australians. Yet they are managed by government departments.
The departments have signed agreements to allow overseas businesses to avoid taxes. The departments who have allowed foreign governments to own Australian land. The tax office which negotiated agreements with overseas companies to avoid paying taxes that everyday Australians have to pay.

Make Oz Day a celebration of the future, not the past
Appeasement is not the answer. Appeasement is the catalyst for further division.
January 26 is the date chosen to celebrate our place in the world.
People from around the world choose our country to call home. Because we are amazing. Australians are proud of our home. The division based on race is not Australian. That is apartheid. We need to stop this vile hatred of Australia now.
Australia Day is not up for destruction by an angry and racist group.

Custodians decline meeting with council on gallery
I for one do not see this town and its progress as being at the whim of aboriginal people over the residents of Alice Springs. This type of division has its claws strongly embedded in segregation and apartheid mentality. The future of our town should be decided by all residents. I am so fed up with people using the race card to gain control. This should not be about who has the biggest stick, it should be about the majority seeking growth and prosperity for Alice Springs. Not personal agendas and petty jealousy.

GST billions yet we’re still the basket case
Jack, I do not have to walk a mile in anyone’s shoes.
It is clearly obvious that bandaid government mentality is all wrong.
What happened to outcomes and audits. Never happened. Throw more money at is the battle cry.
Regards of the fact that billions of dollars has only exacerbate the problem.
Money for nothing comes to mind.
Yet for governments to get that money some of us work hard to pay taxes, fees, levies and so forth. Our borrowings are through the roof. Time for outcome audited funding checks.
