Hot on the trail of the save-the-Murray-Darling billions of dollars wasted comes $500 million to "save" the Great Barrier Reef, which has forced scientists to state the obvious, that it won't save the reef because the reef is dying from climate change ... https://www.yahoo.com/news/millions-ple ... 41241.html

Mind blowing how they can find so much money for bullsh.t projects when so many people are in need.

And if they are serious about fixing the reef, then stop making coal mines and start creating jobs in renewables. Renewables might not be perfect, but there is no choice.

If they are serious about the Murray then they need to fine the people/companies taking excess water.

Matt

Welcome to the "fed-up" club. Its not hard to obtain membership. There's so much of it around that its reached epidemic proportions.

With an election on the horizon, I think its a case of a desperate Govt throwing money at whatever green group has a whinge about something. GBR, Murray-Darling, renewables etc.

We'll probably see a bunfight between green causes about who should get the handouts in the splurge.

I see that George Christiansen (Lib/Nat electorate near Mackay, Qld) has announced that he's been ordained as a Deacon in the Anglican church. Just gotta be some votes in that achievement!

The saying up this way is that when your neighbour starts quoting the scriptures then its time to count your cattle.

Were you aware that recently there was a funding suggestion from some bunch of green crazies to spray some sort of sun-screen compound on the waters of the reef when higher than normal temperatures were predicted to stop coral bleaching?

Might have been some group mixed up with James Cook Uni from memory. They're odds-on for a few million surely?

Might even have been this crowd with the $500 million. Buy a lot of slip-slop-slap with that.

Love the quote.

Yes, a bit fed up. There's that much bullsh.t out there, no action. Daughter showed me a documentary on YouTube about seabirds dying, the birds are chockers with plastic. She was crying. Plastic waste is a growing problem that's been known about for years, but no one is doing anything to fix it. Just a bit of fluffing around with shopping bag laws.

Just bullsh.t grants, bullsh.t politics, and endless cronyism.

Clearly, I need to go fishing.

Any fish down where you are (apart from trout)?

Once you take trout out of the equation you don't hear much about any others.

Very good tuna and swordfish Ron, as well as deep sea bottom fish. But you need a decent boat and windows in the weather.

Good sea trout run in some rivers in spring.

The beach fishing is mostly poor. Black bream in estuaries, some flounder spearing to be had at night, crayfish and abalone if you don't mind all the paperwork.

In the salt, flathead is the staple fish.

Life jackets to be worn at all times.

I enjoy the trout fishing because of the scenery, the fish are mostly small though.

I am restoring a vintage Hardy Palakona split cane fly rod and hope to give it a run next season.

Yes, we had a helluva rain event, thunder and lightning too, after months of hardly a drop. Big thunderstorms are rare where I am.

Was worse in Hobart, where cars were washed down roads and buildings flooded.

They aren't quite ready for monsoonal rain in the Apple Isle.

It's all a contradiction.

http://www.abc.net.au/news/science/2018 ... ef/9783420

Just Government running the country like a Sydney market day. So many shareholders and too many directors that know best.

$500m could buy a lot of land back.

This would be hilarious, except we are paying for it and it is a waste of money ... https://www.theguardian.com/environment ... e-surprise

$500m would help a lot of struggling Aussies atm, and most are struggling due to these muppets stupid decisions.
And heres a good one for you, my son at school gets in troubble for saying gday, must be hello they say bl..dy political correctness gone mad . The whole system had gone mad, throwing $500m at a reef and stuff all to the farmers in drought.

Excellent example of how the money could have been better spent.
