SA goes back to the future

Reflecting on the Premier's call last week for a cleaner, greener future in Adelaide, cartoonist Ross Bateup looks at a technology of the past that could make it all possible sooner.

  • Cartoon: Ross Bateup

Last week, Premier Jay Weatherill used the opening of Parliament to outline his long terms vision for the state, which includes everything from a Royal Commission into the nuclear energy sector to legislation that aims to keep pertrol-fuelled cars out of the city.

What struck cartoonist Ross Bateup most keenly though was the Premier’s calls for a carbon neutral city powered by electric and driverless cars.┬áHe thinks these technologies of the future could well be substituted by a trusty friend from the past – the bicycle.
