Enhancing the Indian Pacific Experience
Now here's a great idea for Great Southern Rail. The high profile tourism train passing through Northern Spain actually stops at night time to maximise the traveller's viewing experience across the changing landscapes. By way of comparison, the Indian Pacific journey across Australia is worth reviewing because most Australians don't realise that arguably the most scenic and variable part of the entire experience is traversed (in both directions) at night-time, i.e. across New South Wales. Why not have the journey extended by two days to include night time stop overs at Broken Hill, Adelaide or Port Augusta, Cook, and Kalgoorlie?

Soil Carbon/Regenerative Agriculture
As suggested by John Hewson, “soil carbon/regenerative agriculture, especially with the roadmap’s improved measurement technology, will happen quicker and more substantively if farmers can sell the carbon credits they create by improving the carbon content of their soils. It would give them another income stream that would reduce their need to put their hands out for welfare-type assistance in times of drought. Indeed, simple changes in farming practices — shallow tilling, organic not chemical fertilisers, crop/animal rotation, improved land clearing and reforestation, etc improve carbon content, making their soils more drought resistant.”  In short,  better management of 'negative emissions technologies.
