Barnaby's onto it, he's said

anyway, the more parched earth the better from the perspective of those who've been busily creating just that --- parched earth -- throughout at minimum, 20 years of solid Chemtrailing


Saudis and Chinese own most of Oz now

bet the Chemtrails end when they're running the show -- because it will be 'mission accomplished'
 

in the meantime, our taxes are being spewed continually into the atmosphere

and people still wonder why those who've never smoked, never been sunburnt, are coming down with fatal cancers

I do actually, otherwise I have to suspect some sort of undiagnosed untreated mental illness.

Politicians are like nappies; they need to be changed often and for the same reason.
The most difficult choice a politician must ever make is whether to be a hypocrite or a liar.

Because its complete bunkum, thats why.

Just the sort of anti-science, anti-evidence based crap you would expect the representatives of climate denial parties would advocate.

As someone in the ABC fact-check article explains, it is far cheaper and more practical to simply de-salinate sea water, if water security for our major population centres is the issue.

The Bradfield scheme is far more ambitious though. It seeks to alter the entire climate, and in turn transform the landscape of Australia by making the inland lakes permanently full, and increasing rainfall. Kinda like the environmental version of human eugenics - and just as loony.

As loony as letting dozens of Sydney harbour
amounts of water wash out to sea when
we live in the driest continent on earth?

Straight from that OP:

Quote:
Fact Check took a closer look at the Bradfield Scheme during this year's election campaign following repeated comments by former Nationals leader Barnaby Joyce.

We found Mr Joyce's proposition that the scheme would ease the effects of droughts and floods in northern Australia to be
pie in the sky.


Space to play or pause, M to mute, left and right arrows to seek, up and down arrows for volume.
Video: The facts on the Bradfield Scheme. (ABC News)

Statutory authorities, government organisations and independent researchers have all debunked the original scheme on scientific, engineering and financial grounds while later versions have also been dismissed by federal and state governments.

We would probably be better off with a man-made river system extending rivers or diverting excess water flow into accessible dams. Had the Bradfield scheme been plausible to create, we would have done so already. How are you going to see flood water in the north and northeast of Australia diverted inland?

With great difficulty.
The greatest problem would be to harvest all the wasted water in the Northern Territory.
I believe that most of it washes out to sea.

If that's possible then you would need a giant stainless steel pipe network
to take the water to where it's needed.
The pumping stations could be run with solar power.

When I was in WA east of headland working underground I could not believe the amount of water approx 150m below the surface. Surely that could also be harvested. The mine just pumped it to settlement ponds.

I think evaporation would kill this idea. Most people don't realise how bloody hot it is out there.

good job they had more vision regarding the Sydney harbour bridge....

we have never had so much money...

yet I bet we waste more than we spend...

it makes me sick..their is no excuse for farmers to spend ten years suffering through a drought...shooting their cattle...itsa disgrace..
