Conjuring up Water

24 November 2009

Two days ago yet another report was released by a group of scientists.  Basically the report states that the Lower Lakes and Coorong are doomed unless we get freshwater, and lots of it, 3800 GL .  The report then goes on to recommend that the government should just release the water and fix the problem. 

Penny Wong has said in today's Senate Debate during Open Question time, what many of us have been wanting to ask all those insisting on a 'freshwater solution'.   

She said, "This is the essential question: how do we conjure up this water when over the last three years we know we have been at one-fifth of the long-term average?"
