Comment on National Indigenous Gallery advisors: ‘Release full report’ by Charlie Carter.

Is that the Prof Helen Garnett, former VC of CDU?
If so, as I recall, she is a virologist.
What is her expertise in relation to this project?
She would also be Darwin based.
The mismanagement of the process has the stink of Darwin decisions imposed on Alice as it is.
I have previously written in support of the Melanka site, but with the further information on the vision and scope of the project, I see that the Melanka site is inadequate.
And so is the Anzac High? Hill? Oval? site.
The open space in the landscape near the Desert Park fits the bill, now that we know a bit more.
We need to know it all.

Shooting, not selling feral camels
Ah, the same old utopian dreams. If it was economic someone would be doing it.
It is not!
Reflect for just a minute on the costs associated with taking vehicles and equipment to remote trackless areas where the camels are.
Then killing, butchering to health standards, refrigerating the meat, and getting it to market. It just don’t add up.


Gas and solar: Still uneasy bedfellows
I suggest the problem is not the aim of 50% renewable, but the clinging to the 50% gas.
The technology is available to handle the renewables, it just needs the commitment and money from the government which is in the position of trying to cope with the Giles Government’s stupid purchase of the new gas generators.


Now that the Rock can’t be climbed, visiting it will cost more
What on earth is John Bell talking about? Something that did not happen in 1983?
Anangu didn’t have ownership of the land then.
If the “Charlie” referred to is me, I wasn’t in the NT then, and have never had any role in the management of the park.
Who the hell is Clyde?


Now that the Rock can’t be climbed, visiting it will cost more
Trevor: I have been a guide at Uluru Kata Tjuta NP. In answer to your specious query, may I suggest;
1. Yes, walk around the rock, slowly.
2. Walk into Walpa Gorge, then watch the sunset at Kata Tjuta (and have an evening picnic).
3. Walk the full Valley of the Winds walk.
4. Spend a few hours in the cultural centre.
5. And yes, you’d probably want to see the sunset on Uluru.


The Territory: It’s a gas!
Gas is well (pun intended) on the way to being a stranded asset.
It is not “clean”.
It will survive as an interim back up fuel for a short while.
See the analysis.
