Winter camping anyone? Once again, members of the global outdoor community have had to step in and fill the cavernous leadership vacuum left by the feckless go-nowhere ditherers in our global halls of power.Despite repeated and increasingly urgent advice tendered by Earth scientists, ideological nonsense-peddlers and selfish vested interests continue to hold sway over the policy direction of those charged with the responsibility of plotting and steering our future course.The fourth estate seems powerless to do anything; even repeated lying and demonstrated scandal is not enough to expel useless lawmakers from office. Instead they seem emboldened by their ability to avoid and shake-off responsibility. Rather than resile in shame, they stick around like a bad stink, giving themselves pay-rises, lost in a fog of their own self-importance. This…

time to stop horsing around

Brumbies are an invasive species, so the NSW Governments decision to protect them is baffling It was World Environment Day on 5 June. Now in its 44th year, the United Nations-run event is, “above all … the ‘people's day’ for doing something to take care of the Earth”.I like the idea behind it. Let’s get the issue of the environment at the forefront of our minds, if only for one day a year. Have us feel ownership of this planet. But increasingly, it’s the focus on “the people” that saddens me.Sure, people can do all they can – composting, taking public transport, all the usual stuff – but when governments and corporations wilfully ignore science to pursue their own agendas, well, the effect of me dutifully separating my…

a few ways brumbies degrade the australian environment

Grazing. Horses preferentially graze on grasses, tussocks and heaths, which are critical habitats for threatened native animals such as the Smoky Mouse. Soil compaction. Horse hooves squash soil and mud in wet areas and create microhabitats for weed growth. Trampled and grazed ground also increases erosion. Trackways. In areas such as the Eastern Alps in Victoria, horses use worn paths. Animals walking these trackways can carry diseases and weeds. ■…

cycling across antarctica the ultimate goal for kate.

Arctic Canada. Kate leaving Shingle Point. At Kap Tobin, the most southerly point of Liverpool Land, Northeast Greenland. Hurry Fjord, Northeast Greenland. Outdoor: You've embarked on a number of big adventures, when did you start thinking that you'd like to do these type of epic-scaled expedition-style quests? I mean, was the seed of ambition planted early or was your ambition always there? KL: I was certainly inspired by the stories of my pioneering ancestors, such as that of my great, great uncle, William Snell who was the second person to cycle across the Nullarbor, when he rode from Menzies in the Western Australian goldfields to Melbourne, in order to propose to his childhood sweetheart. After she accepted, he put her on a boat bound…
