60 Minutes TV Programme - Sunday 4th May

Intriguing segment about the Murray-Darling and the critical effects seen at the Coorong in South Australia.
  • Dairy industry decimated
  • Lake Alexandrina has the appearance of a desert, rather than a wetland.
  • Bird life being seriously affected by the salinity -- up to 10 X normal in some parts of the 'wetlands'.
  • No discussion on any potential solutions.
Without any substantial, consistent and continuous water input, how can this disaster be prevented from continuing??
Perhaps it is time to review Desalination at Portland, VIC.
