The Mitchell River, showing Melbourne’s drinking water  being wasted

It is the right time to plan to do something meaningful about Australia’s water policy with regard to dams. Tony Abbott has announced a plan to build dams around the country to help control floods, boost food security, and perhaps even supply capital cities with water.

Following this announcement, Andrew Bolt points out that, except for one dam recently constructed in south-east Queensland, there have been no new dams constructed in Australia for a capital city since 1984. He lists all the planned dams knocked back since that date and the wasteful construction of desal plants because of green madness and runaway belief in permanent climate change.
