A golden opportunity

Yeeha! A biochar/pyrolysis machine to complement Lismore’s exemplary recycling and worm farm facilities sounds like a golden opportunity (Echo, Jan 21).

This would provide an immense boost to the whole region, increasing the productivity and sustainability of local agriculture, ensuring the viability and vibrancy of the local economy and ecology.

Get serious about public transport; a fleet of buses running on the syn gas it produces. They should be council run and don’t need to make a profit, the benefits will far outweigh the costs. Eventually a power plant. Forget last millenia thinking; pouring millions into powerlines to further entrench the coal furnaced grid. PAY FOR ITSELF IN FIVE YEARS! Forget the gallery. There is an abundance of all forms of art around here and there always will be.

Lismore Council excels at two things; recycling and catastrophically bungling mega dollar projects that become a perpetual financial drain.

Acknowledge your weaknesses and build on your strengths! I demand action.
