Re: The science of Col Barnett, or the Dinosaur Tracks at James Price Point, ...



Tony, can the dinosaur list help in any way?  Is there a petition,  letter 
writing campaign, etc.?  
 
Note the news comment:
 "The peer reviewers had been called in after the State Government was  
criticised when its own commissioned reports on the trackways found they were  
not of museum grade quality and that destroying them would be "regrettable 
but  negligible".

All,

Here's the  report:

The  main text, weirdly enough, is at the  bottom,

(6MB),  and the paleontological survey appendix is  here,

>From  the latter:
"While there are at least two Australian palaeontologists who  have
worked on the Broome tracks, their results, with the exception of  a
preliminary paper (Thulborn et al., 1994) have not been  published.
Therefore, a thorough evaluation, with appropriate scientific  follow
through (i.e., publications) is overdue."

Well,... duh? I'd  like to think there was some miscommunication here.
