    Flannery spent billions of taxpayer dollars on desalination plants all around Australia because we were never going to have dam filling rains again. Few of the plants have ever been used. Good Government listened to him!!

  3. Australia has been suffering droughts and floods since at least 12,000 BC and probably before that. The aborigines were able to cope with this, using no solar panels or wind-turbines.
