Comment on Cattle in parks: Fences impractical, says department by Rosalie.

Cattle are trashing our beautiful parks. It is hard to believe that the costs of fencing are greater than the loss of biodiversity and tourism value from cattle in parks.
We are a strong volunteer workforce, and the amazing work in restoring the Larapinta Trail after the fires shows what volunteers can achieve, even in harsh conditions in a short time.
I suggest Parks should contact their volunteers to protect our parks by maintaining fencing.

A touch of light: totemic caterpillars – ewepe
I love the reference to the “full pandemic kit of disposable scrubs, gloves and face mask” – a reminder that we’re sitting at home worrying about pandemic, and how incredibly fortunate we are if our equipment is being misappropriated to protect us from caterpillars.

‘Sneaky’ Christmas present from Environment Minister
Yes, we need to leave the gas in the ground.
Unfortunately gas is not replacing coal as an energy source but being added to the fossil fuel mix. Gas industries also release methane at every stage of the extraction process so climate change impact may be as high as coal.
The NT’s immense solar resources provide sustainable economic opportunities to replace gas, and employ people in a wide range of occupations.
Very disappointing from our ALP government which we elected for their claimed environmental concerns including an informed approach to the question of fracking.

Australian pathway through Pine Gap to nuclear ban treaty 
If Australia’s alliance with USA may prevent us from joining the nuclear test ban treaty then rather than discussing whether we can join the treaty, we should re-consider the importance of our alliance with USA.
In 2021 Australia’s position in the world suggests we should consider the value of multilateral dependence, rather than being dependent on USA.

Another great river tree goes up in flames
I agree with you Alex that the loss of these ancient trees to fires is a tragedy. I wish we could provide safe housing and warmth so our heritage is not lost for winter warmth and cooking.
