    All that beautiful, clean, fresh water running out to the coral sea. happens every year.

    It’s a national disgrace that we aren’t embarking on a nation building program to capture this water and turn it inland.

    An updated Bradfield Scheme shouldn’t be about profit, or cost, of moving the water per se. It should be about drought proofing large parts of the interior and opening up new areas for agricultural pursuits. Drought proof the interior, and you avoid rural towns dying, and maintain employment, businesses and exports.

    We’re so obsessed with climate change, yet we let such self help ideas pass us by.
