Fund Solar City and Water Smart, not footy lights: Alice environmentalists

... and has civic duty ever been mentioned in the nuke dump debate?

 

"Investments such as the CBD revitalisation that have been decided a long time ago, now they actually have to get that happening," says Arid Lands Environment Centre CEO Jimmy Cocking in a comment on Labor's election commitments.
"It's been talked about since I've been here, four and a half years, and still we haven't seen a whole lot coming out of it.

"There have been some consultations, some draft plans, but what we need is a financial commitment from the Territory Government.

"I think it would be much better to spend money on this than on lights for Traeger Park.

"I'd like to see some more commitment to existing programs such as Alice Solar Cities and Alice Water Smart.

"I saw nothing in the policy commitments for that. That's really important for us for that momentum to keep going."

Mr Cocking was speaking this morning at a protest (pictured) against uranium mining and the proposed nuclear waste repository at Muckaty Station near Tennant Creek.
Meanwhile the current New York Review of Books raises a notion so far absent from the local uranium debate: Civic duty. ERWIN CHLANDA reports.
