i dont buy that Australia is a continent, it's just king of the islands.
thats my 2 cents
ps what's up with the aboriginals?
Depends on what you mean by what's up, really depends on which state you're in.
As for the desalination plants, here in Victoria I don't really see the need for them yet, but it could be a good pre-emptive step
What states do we have in here?
I for one am a bloody proud Victorian
Queenslander here Giday to you (born NSW) lived WA NT NSW Qld and Tasmania. Family couldn't sit still
Still can't. Couldn't pay me to live in Victoria though
The de-sal at Tweed I think, was put on hold before completion due to the fact that more than a third of Qld got flooded, never rains it pours!
Unfortunately years ago the greenies stopped a lot of dams from going ahead (in Qld), which in the long run was not sensible, without water we're
dead pretty much.
The problem I have is this fracking for natural gas, which seems to have been brushed under the carpet lately here.
If you've ever seen Gas Land, you'll know we don't want that here. Then we really will have water issues, If they tried that in my back yard
they'd find it broken as often as I could manage.
We need to learn the lessons of other countries for sure.
Good idea for a thread mate, although I don't encourage segregation...
Aussie! Aussie! Aussie!
On that note I want to add how bloody glad I am, my family and I, live in the Southern Hemisphere!
