Independent MLA Gerry Wood said the country should vigorously pursue renewable options, such as geothermal energy. But he said the cleanest base source of energy at the moment was nuclear. Mr Wood said the Territory did not have the population to justify the building of a nuclear power station. But he said the NT should hook into a national nuclear network. The Nelson MLA said the federal and Territory governments were only window dressing over climate change if they did not look at the base power source in Australia. Mr Wood was responding to the NT Governments climate change policy, which aims to phase out single-use plastic bags, introduce a container deposit scheme and lower greenhouses gases by 60 per cent by 2050. He criticised the Governments push to restrict land clearing, saying land could be cleared sustainably for food production. Snow job has our Shellie all fired up COLD COMFORT: Shellie Morris rugs up for the Winter Olympics. Picture: BRAD FLEET ByDANIEL BOURCHIER A TERRITORY musician is set to entertain the world at the Vancouver Winter Olympics in Canada next year. And there are whispers that Aboriginal singer/songwriter Shellie Morris will also be asked to perform at the the soccer World Cup in South Africa later in the year. The acclaimed Darwin-based musician has also been signed to perform at the London Summer Olympics in 2012. Morris told the Northern Territory News she received confirmation about the Vancouver games just days ago. I couldnt sleep, she said, I was jumping around. I was so excited. I think it will be big. Ive never seen winter in a snow country before. Morris is a featured artist with the Black Arm Band a collab oration of Australias top Aboriginal artists and jazz musicians. The group will be performing along with the Vancouver Orchestra at the iconic games which run February 12-28. One of Morris tracks is set to be played at the show. Morris said the Black Arm Band was a great showcase of Australian talent. Now Ive just got to go and buy some woolly-bully clothes, she said.
