Do your bit to save the planet – buy a CO2 generator

Johnson CO2 Generator          Republished

Carbon dioxide is one of the essential ingredients in green plant growth, and is a primary environmental factor in greenhouses. CO2 enrichment at 2, 3 or 4 times natural concentration will cause plants to grow faster and improve plant quality and help save the planet.

Modern growers are becoming increasingly aware of the value of CO2. Particularly now that most greenhouses are purposely shutting out atmospheric CO2 to conserve energy.

Save the planet, install as many of these as you can afford. A reader says he has four operating 24 x 7.

The Johnson CO2 Generator automatically provides the carbon dioxide to meet maximum growing potentials – and operates for only pennies a day. The Johnson Generator can easily be installed in any greenhouse. No expensive ductwork is necessary and CO2 is diffused evenly without supplemental fans.

Join with modern growers everywhere – use Johnson CO2 Generators – the low cost way to produce CO2 – the nutrient of the new millennium.

Why you get more rapid and efficient growth and better plant quality with Johnson CO2.

Plants must absorb carbon dioxide (CO2) in combination with water, soil nutrients and sunlight to produce the sugars vital for growth. A shortage of any of these requirements will retard the growing process. Normally there are approximately 300 parts per million of CO2 in the atmosphere; when this level is increased to over 1 ,000 ppm, results are higher production and better plant quality. The Johnson Generator provides up to 1,500 ppm per unit in an average 24′ x 200′ greenhouse or an equivalent 50,000 cu. ft. volume based on one air change per hour.

Nighttime levels in a greenhouse range from 400 to 500 ppm due to plant respiration. Shortly after sunrise this level will drop to normal atmosphere (300 ppm) due to the plant using the early light to start photosynthesis. After 3 to 4 hours of early morning sunlight the CO2 level can drop to around l00 to 150 ppm, then growth is practically stopped. Supplemental CO2 added during this period can substantially increase your plant and flower production. By adding CO2, during winter months when greenhouse ventilators are closed and when low CO2 concentration becomes a limiting factor in growth, users are obtaining yield and bloom quality which is normally associated with spring and summer.

CO2 More Important Than Ever
The Johnson CO2 Generator is more important than ever because greenhouse growers, trying to conserve energy, are shutting out CO2. Rising fuel costs have forced many growers to use doubled-layered glass, etc., to conserve energy – as a result much less CO2 is entering the greenhouse.

How to use the Johnson CO2 Generator
When there is sunlight and the vents are closed, CO2 should be added continuously to your greenhouse. If the vents are opened because of heat build up the generator should continue to operate for about 2 hours and then be shut off. Approximately 1 Lb. of CO2 per hour per 1,000 sq. ft. yields 1,000 ppm’s of CO2. A 4,000 sq. ft. house requires at least 4 Lbs. of CO2 per hour. If CO21evel drops off from 1,000 ppm’s to 500 ppm’s on a clear sunny day, you can easily adjust to a higher burning rate to make up for the more rapid absorption of CO2 by plants. Most growers use their Johnson Generator daily in winter from approximately 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.;gs_greenhouse_heaters;pg111081.html

Qld Labor throws farmers under insect invasion bus from the north

The Coen Biosecurity checkpoint located on central Cape York Peninsula, the only land bulwark between Papua New Guinea, Torres Strait and the Far Northern, $600 million horticultural industry, will be closed later this year.

Once an employer of local indigenous biosecurity officers, the state government-controlled centre will be closed down and handed over to local Aborigines who have plans to convert the facility to living quarters and occupy the accommodation units.

Departmental sources confirmed the roadside check point would close, displacing existing staff.

“There are no plans to set up another facility to check vehicles carrying fruit or vegetables south,” the source told Cairns News.

Local Aborigines plan to move into the Coen Biosecurity centre after it is closed later this year

The Wet Tropics region centred on Cairns and Mareeba is one of the most diverse tree cropping districts in Australia. Fruit production increased in the Wet Tropics Natural Resource Management (NRM) region from 250,000 tonnes in 2013–14 to 370,000 tonnes in 2017–18. Mangoes, avocados and bananas are the main fruit crops produced in the region.

Since 2016 South African immigrants and other corporate farmers have descended upon the Mareeba Dimbulah Irrigation Area buying farms and planting large areas of grapes and citrus.

Sugar cane cropping is dominant throughout the district supplying the Arriga and Mossman sugar mills.

Closure of the biosecurity facility to the north of this vast irrigation area will leave growers at the mercy of the Red-banded mango caterpillar, black sigatoka banana disease and other insect invaders found in the Torres Strait and PNG.

Tourists often unwittingly bring fruit with them on their return journey south not knowing the threat invasive pests could have on the horticultural industry.

Biosecurity officers at the Coen checkpoint dispose of any fruit found in vehicles that is deemed a threat.

The Labor Minister for Agriculture Mark Furner has been contacted for comment.

Do Freemasons and Fabians still rule the roost?


Freemasonic control of police forces has been around for a long time. In Australia and the UK many of the police hierarchy are members of a Freemasonic Lodge. In 1961 the first Queensland Police Lodge was formed in Brisbane with more than 80 active police officers meeting to form Vigilance 494 Lodge.

The Lodge was consecrated in June 1961 and initially met at the Kedron Masonic Temple, later to moving to the Petrie Terrace Masonic Temple (next to the Petrie Terrace Police Barracks), and finally to the Stones Corner Masonic Centre where it still meets today.

The Lodge has recorded a total of 318 members to date and 218 of them have been Police Officers. The Foundation Master, Norwin William Bauer MVO, QPM, GM became Commissioner of Police. Three of the original 66 Foundation Members are still members.

But it should be noted there are many more police officers who are members of other lodges around the state and across the nation.

It came as no surprise in the early eighties that aspiring Liberal or National Party political candidates were required to become lodge members before their nominations were accepted.

It is no secret either that aspiring Labor candidates had to be members of the International Socialist Organisation (ISO), the Fabian Society or other secretive groups to gain endorsement particularly in the federal arena.

Click on picture below for Fraternal Secrets:

The entire Bjelke Petersen Cabinet between 1968 and 1987 were Freemasons or they would not have been nominated for the Ministry. This follows a similar tradition in the UK Parliament.

However Bjelke Petersen was not a member. He once told this scribe after he was deposed by then leading light Freemason and National Party Chairman Sir Robert Sparkes he was “disgusted” at his treatment by Sparkes and some Liberal MP’s.

He said “those dashed Freemasons” were responsible for his demise.

A number of senior police officers appearing before the Fitzgerald Inquiry, 1987 – 1989, into government and police corruption were revealed as Freemasons.

It has been said that the Lodge is losing influence in political and judicial circles in modern Australia however the brotherhood still exists in the ‘job’ according to retired police officers.

Lodge activities are not confined to a group of men or women (Order of the Eastern Star) huddling in a corner conspiring against others. They look after their own by building retirement homes and other worthy community sponsorships, generally flying under the radar.

In those heady days the Lodge ran Queensland. The State today owes its economic prosperity to the reign of the National Party which opened up the coal industry and balloted land for family farmers right across the brigalow belt, some of the most fertile land in the world.

The Nationals were leaders in Aboriginal welfare and under then Minister Bob Katter created long term leases in the Torres Strait enabling Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders home ownership. In some communities there may be leases (or lease applications) under the then Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders (Land Holding) Act 1985 (often called ‘Land Holding Act’ and ‘Katter’ leases)

The Nationals built dams and opened beef roads, made cheap funds available for family farmers, beef and sheep producers through the Agricultural Bank and created vast, new remote electricity networks which saw production surge to unprecedented levels across the entire agricultural sector.

The Nationals today are but a shadow of their early compatriots whose membership has dwindled to a handful. Today the Nationals, aka Liberals wearing Akubras, support the Climate Change hoax, the totally corrupt Ukranian President Zelensky, carbon dixoide reduction and Covid jabs. They no longer represent the bush and are largely a group of flunkies without a roost.

Then the rot set in when Labor Premier Wayne Goss, a solicitor, was elected in 1989, post-Fitzgerald, forming government which immediately set about to unwind the economic successes of the National Party.

Former Labor Premier Wayne Goss busted bush culture

Goss and the ALP hated the bush and the Nationals for having kept them out of power for a generation and proceeded to kill off regional governmental services and start the deliberate break down of bush culture evolved over the previous 150 years.

This culture-busting by the ALP continues today. Since 1987 not a dam or new highway has been built outside of the Brisbane triangle. Their Marxist legislative agenda has curtailed or prohibited many rural social activities and industry, the latest being animal welfare laws which in effect will prohibit rodeos and horse racing over time.

Now the Marxist Premier is trying to tighten up the already most restrictive gun laws in the world.

Land development all but ceased in 1992 when then ALP State Attorney General Rod Welford signed off on the United Nations Agenda 21 treaty designed to shape Local Government By-Laws and reform and consolidate Shire Councils making them rubber stamps for State Government environmental policies by prohibiting or to stymy regional development.

The unintelligent voters of Brisbane keep returning the ALP, with help from proven voter fraud which will be accelerated now that China has been given our state electoral roll.

In true Fabian style, the ALP by gradualism, has turned this once prosperous state into a socialist enclave, all the while enriching ALP mates that would make the clandestine activities of the Old-Guard Nationals seem like a Sunday school picnic.

Artificial food production being ramped up to remove farms and grazing land from production

from the Conversation

Here’s the basic problem for conservation at a global level: food production, biodiversity and carbon storage in ecosystems are competing for the same land. As humans demand more food, so more forests and other natural ecosystems are cleared, and farms intensify and become less hospitable to many wild animals and plants. Therefore global conservation, currently focused on the COP15 summit in Montreal, will fail unless it addresses the underlying issue of food production.

Fortunately, a whole raft of new technologies is being developed that make a system-wide revolution in food production feasible. According to recent research by one of us (Chris), this transformation could meet increased global food demands by a growing human population on less than 20% of the world’s existing farmland. Or in other words, these technologies could release at least 80% of existing farmland from agriculture in about a century.

Around four-fifths of the land used for human food production is allocated to meat and dairy, including both range lands and crops specifically grown to feed livestock. Add up the whole of India, South Africa, France and Spain and you have the amount of land devoted to crops that are then fed to livestock.

Geoengineering weather to create floods in eastern Australia

Dr Helmut Fluhrer claims he has produced tons of rain under Government contract for Australia, Switzerland, UAE and Jordan.
His company WeatherTec works for governments only.

Ionization Technology is based on charging aerosols in the atmosphere and WeatherTec Emitter Stations are based on the ground.
WeatherTex’s description is “Charge humidity and clouds with ions;
Reduce required humidity to generate rainfalls”
Its strengths are reputed as “Rainfalls cover large areas (>1000 km2); Most environmentally friendly technology”.
Its key limitation is stated as “Requires areas with > 40% humidity”.

So now we know why it’s been raining since April in Melbourne and MSM tells everyone that it will be a wet Spring and someone cited, a wet Summer!

NSW Liberals as agents of the WEF intend to wipe out cattle herd with mRNA jabs – where is the NFF?

by Jim O’Toole, Townsville bureau

Minister predicts foot and mouth and lumpyskin diseases could enter the Far North during wet season – what does he know that we don’t?

The NSW Government has taken another step towards fast tracking the world first mRNA vaccines for Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) and Lumpy Skin Disease, inking a deal with US biotechnology company Tiba Biotech.

This intellectual pygmy of the National Party, Dugald Saunders has been living under a rock for three years. As thousands of his and megalomaniacal Health Minister Brad Hazzard’s mRNA jabbed constituents are indelibly injured or die from mRNA jabs all around him he wants to do the same to the cattle herd. These morons should be certified and taken to mental institutions.

Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW Paul Toole said today marks an important milestone towards securing the vaccine technology that will protect Australia’s $28.7 billion livestock industry.

“The NSW Nationals in Government are taking the threat of FMD and Lumpy Skin Disease extremely seriously, and this milestone is another step forward in preparing for a potential outbreak,” Mr Toole said.

“I have now written to vaccine manufacturers to take up my challenge to develop both vaccines ready for use and manufacture in NSW by August 1 next year.

“COVID-19 demonstrated to us that all possible avenues in developing vaccines must be explored and we will leave no stone unturned.”

Minister for Agriculture Dugald Saunders said the agreement with Tiba Biotech gives NSW another path towards developing mRNA vaccines for FMD and Lumpy Skin Disease.

“It is critical that we develop mRNA vaccines for FMD and Lumpy Skin as quickly as possible to protect our State’s livestock sector,” Mr Saunders said.

The NSW cattle herd will be relegated to blood and bone fertiliser if Tiba mRNA vaxx gets into their system. If NSW cattle producers allow the WEF agents to jab their stock, there will be an unprecedented consumer boycott of all meat products across Australia. All a part of the depopulation program.

“The threat of FMD is ongoing and there are concerns Lumpy Skin Disease could enter northern Australia this coming wet season, so it’s critical we continue to do what we can as quickly as we can.

“Current FMD vaccines use the virus itself, and there is yet to be an approved vaccine for use in Australia for Lumpy Skin Disease, so creating mRNA vaccines to combat either disease would be a game-changer for the industry.

“mRNA vaccines are cheaper and quicker to produce, highly effective and very safe.

“Because they are fully synthetic and do not require any animal or microbial products, they do not carry with them the same risks as traditionally derived vaccines.”

Tiba co-founder Peter McGrath said the company was pleased to be working in partnership with government, industry and researchers to protect Australia’s vital livestock industry and food security.

Jason Strong of Meat and Livestock Australia, a parasitic body living off livestock producers agrees to gene altering jabs for cattle and who knows what effect this will have on anyone who ingests mRNA prions?

“Our next generation RNA technology is able to safely and efficiently deliver vaccines for both human and animal health needs and has demonstrated more practical storage requirements than existing RNA technologies,” Mr McGrath said.

Meat and Livestock Australia managing director Jason Strong said mRNA vaccines had additional benefits for the livestock sector.

“This type of vaccine technology may not require the longer testing and approval processes required for conventional vaccine development and importation as it does not use animal products,” Mr Strong said.

“That means we can use it to provide faster responses to outbreaks, enable eradication and return to freedom status – and market access – sooner.”

The pilot program is part of a $65 million investment from the NSW Government to prepare for and prevent exotic animal diseases, which brings the total investment in biosecurity this year alone to $229 million – the biggest biosecurity investment by a single jurisdiction on exotic pest and disease control.

How the WEF is getting rid of farmers and fertiliser by eating insects and removing CO2

by staff writers

The insect farmer representatives of the World Economic Forum addressed a meeting of 100 primary producers at Mareeba, Far North Queensland recently, feeding the crowd with bread made from 336 crickets and wheat flour.

The WEF tentacles are spreading across the nation conditioning the population to eat insects while their climate change ‘great reset’ is disassembling farms, water supplies and food chains.

The WEF wants to get rid of livestock and replace nutritious meat with insects

When traditional food supplies are shut down, leftist WEF Director Klaus Schwab says “everyone will own nothing an be happy.”

Described as “futuristic farming themes” Cairns insect farmer Stirling Tavener of ‘Bugs Alive’ with the help of Alessandros Pizzeria and Antipasto Bar have developed a cricket meal bread which was available throughout the day.

He said crickets are considered environmentally friendlier and had a much lower carbon dioxide footprint than cattle, pigs and sheep, require less resources to produce but are high in protein, fibre and Vitamin B.

Green Food Australia managing director and founder Jess Uhlig tackled the vexed issue of how to remove fertiliser from agriculture by developing natural alternatives.

It seems the elephant at the meeting was totally ignored. Over the past decade Tablelands farmers have attended a number of gatherings to address declining food nutrition from depleted soils which after 100 years of continuous production has been ‘mined’ of nearly all essential trace elements and minerals necessary to produce healthy and nutritious food.

Will insect farms replace traditional food?

Kingaroy soil nutritionist and farmer Mr John Koehler told a meeting held at Yungaburra  some years ago that Australian soils generally, were simply a “medium to hold up a plant.”

He provoked a great deal of mirth when he told the meeting of about 50 farmers that there was “more nutrition in the cardboard box the produce was packed in than in the produce itself.”

“Our soils are seriously depleted of essential elements to produce any nutritious food including livestock,” Mr Koehler said.

“Today there is only half the nutrition in beef than there was 50 years ago.”

Mr Koehler was critical of carbon dioxide farming and its derivatives which would eventually kill all food production, something he says is a part of the world depopulation plan signed up to by Australia in the Paris Agreement.

“Jess Uhlig’s fanciful ideas about ‘natural alternatives’ continues the anti-scientific sophistry of the ratbag Prince Charles’ organic themes that there are natural minerals and artificial minerals,” he said.

“There is only one atomic structure for all elements on the periodic table. This garbage can only be marketed to the sheeple after years of the dumbing down of our children with their socialist school curriculum by the removal of any useful learning and replacing it with Marxist indoctrination.

“This has led to total ignorance of how creation works as evidenced by the more or less general acceptance that an essential and vital trace gas, carbon dioxide upon which all life depends, is a deadly pollutant and causes ‘climate change’.

“The great brainwashed masses suck in this total rubbish and struggle to find ways to ‘reduce our carbon footprint’ so as to receive the accolades of their fellow victims. The reality is that the more CO2 we can produce or rather release into the atmosphere to be usable to plant growth the better for all the planet’s ecosystems.

“The WEF and the United Nations Agenda 21 which Australia signed in 1992, is a plan to destroy the worlds population by about 95 per cent as they have committed to in their genocidal Bio-diversity Treaty that requires food production and the plentiful, cheap supply of energy stopped.”

He said the repair and rebuilding of soils on a massive scale worldwide needs to be a prime duty of all governments.

“The fertiliser industry should be taken out of the hands of global cartels and placed into farmer-controlled co-operatives with full government support. Organic fantasies are just that,” Mr Koehler explained.

“The minute you hear an expert dribble on about carbon footprints you must know that you have a real live idiot on the loose”

“If an essential element is missing from soil it has to be introduced from mineral deposits.

“The problem facing agriculture is that the proper balances and total necessary levels for each food crop remain a mystery for most so-called experts in our universities and the poor-quality graduates from these politically correct institutions.

“The minute you hear an expert dribble on about carbon footprints you must know that you have a real live idiot on the loose. Someone that sings off the politically correct music sheet just to keep their job, regardless of the consequences should be ignored.

“Proposals to eat disease carrying insects shows a damaged mind which has been ‘Aristotled’ not educated.

“These people were merely taught what to think, not how to think.

“We need laws that make it a crime to promote any of this carbon pollution fiction. These people are contributing to national suicide,” Mr Koehler concluded.

Thousands of essential and skilled services job vacancies did not happen by accident

by columnist Lyndesy Symonds

There are tens of thousands of capable, skilled and adaptable Australians who have hit the five-0 and 50+ who can’t get work. And there are tens of thousands of capable Australians who had their jobs taken from them because they refused the injection / medical experiment mandated by the Politburo [National Cabinet] of the UN CoVID Regime in Australia. And there are tens of thousands of capable Australians who had their businesses destroyed due to the CoVID Correctness and mandated compliances of the Politburo.

Millions of Australians are the social carnage of these Communist policies managed by WEFie leaders who have been hand picked and specifically trained for the task of destroying the Western nation.

Therefore: the Problem they create The Inevitable Blowback from the target population: vacancies in essential jobs, staff shortages, broken supply chains and collapsing services, social chaos. The Solution (which like the bioweapon vaxx) was just waiting in the wings: migrant rolltide and replacement of the White, Anglo-Celtic majority demographic in Australia.

Communist WEFie Justin Trudeau summed up the Kalergi policy the best: “Old stock White Canadians…are replaceable. And we will replace them.”

But wait – there’s more. “The Upside of Diversity” . Irish Savant. Sept 30 2021.

Where are the unions? They were complicit with the WEF and the political duopoly to lock up the country! Two unintelligent WEF stooges, ACTU Secretary Sally McManus and President Michelle O’Neil should be prosecuted in a people’s court. Ed.

Peanut industry is next to go when party duopoly allows cheap, inferior imports to flood the market

Katters Australian Party Member for Hill, Shane Knuth has urged the Federal Government to avoid a repeat of the near destruction of Queensland’s Dairy Industry when it was deregulated 25 years ago.

Mr Knuth highlighted the similarities after reports that Australian owned Bega Dairy had cut prices paid to Australian Farmers because of the availability of cheap imports.

Member for Hill Shane Knuth, the only real Opposition in the Queensland Parliament

“Before the Federal Government deregulated the dairy industry it provided a 50 per cent surplus of Milk to the state and had over 1500 dairy farms. In just over two decades since deregulation we lost over 1200 dairy farms and now produce a 50 per cent deficit in milk supply, which means we have to import milk from interstate and overseas,” Mr Knuth said.

Mr Knuth said he can see the same thing happening to peanut farmers, many of whom operate on the Atherton Tablelands, unless the Federal Government intervenes to support the industry.

“The Federal Government, on both sides of politics, are beholden to being part of the free market, which means they trade one industry off against another. The result is the flood of cheap peanut imports into Australia, which could have a long-term devastating effect on our home-grown industry,” he said.

Mr Knuth said that Bega also had to take on some of the blame.

“Bega is an Australian owned company who heavily promote using Australian products in their food ranges, so they should honour that and show some loyalty to local producers.”

He said it had taken over 20 years for the dairy industry to recover where farmers recently secured a 17cent per litre farm gate price increase.

“I don’t want to see the peanut industry go through the same pain. The lessons learnt from that debacle should be used to aid peanut growers in Australia.,” Mr Knuth said.

“We all know that our farmers abide by some of the most stringent quality control regulations in the world, so when you eat Australian grown, you know you are eating quality product, which you cannot guarantee with imports.

“I firmly believe that the majority of Australians will pay more for food if they know it is made up of Australian produced ingredients and Bega should be mindful of that. 

“I call on the Federal Government to immediately intervene, assist our peanut farmers and stop the import of cheap peanut product into the country.”

Australia has more precipitation per head of population than most other countries on Earth

Dispelling myths about water

by Ron Pike

The myths about water are many.  Below I describe seven.
They range from (1) Australia being the driest continent on earth, to (2) all of our rivers dying from overuse, right up to (3) the government being required to return water to the environment.

As explorer Sturt rather boldly stated when he discovered the Murray River, ‘I have found Australia’s Mississippi’ after he left the Hume River(Murrumbidgee)  Pic ABC

Most of these myths are rooted in ‘environmentalism’, a political movement which has become a form of religious belief that fosters a sense of moral superiority in the believer, but does not burden him with adherence to scrutiny or veracity.  Many environmentalists arrogantly believe their cause is so important that they should not be questioned or challenged in scientific debate. Have you ever heard an environmentalist explain what the environment is, or where it resides?

For years now I have used municipal flood records to refute the myth (4), the oft falsely-repeated claim that since we invested in water conservation and irrigation, we have had fewer over-the-bank flows (floods) than in the century previous.   In reality, we have had many more, and you do not need a degree in anything other than common sense to work out why.

But here are some not-so-well-known facts ( (a) to (g) ) that should be shouted out in the present flood (pardon the pun) of misinformation about our water resources.

(a) Australia has more precipitation per head of population than most other countries on Earth, e.g.  megalitres per person: Australia: 140, Brazil 130, USA 33, Japan 6, United Kingdom 4.

(b) Of our precipitation, about 13 per cent runs to the sea and this amounts to about 290 million Megalitres per year from the mainland and 50 million megalitres from Tasmania.

(c) While the amount we use for all mankind’s purposes varies from year to year, it rarely exceeds 5 per cent of this huge volume.

How is it possible to argue that we, the people, are depriving ‘the environment’ of water when people are only using 0.4 per cent of the total precipitation and around 5 per cent of runoff?

How then is it possible for anyone and most of all Politicians, to argue that our rivers are over-committed? 

The Murray is way under-committed. Australia almost tops the world chart for the highest amount of rainfall per capita allowing 340 million megalitres to run into the sea of which we use just 5 per cent per year.

How can the federal government justify overriding Section 100 of the Constitution to return water to ‘the environment’ when the people of Australia only use 0.4 per cent of the precipitation that falls from the heavens?

Politicians, if they are to regain any credibility, must recognise the facts
(d) that the bulk of our runoff is between Adelaide and Cairns, which is right where we need it.
All we must do is conserve these huge flows in times of excess and where necessary divert westward.

(e) Mankind has yet to develop a better water conservation system than the building of dams.  
(f) Building Dams would massively grow our economy, generate a huge growth in jobs, and if practically managed, stop most of our flood damage.

But flowing from this revelation of where our water resources are, is a much bigger and more important truth that has been buried by those not saddled with a commitment to truth.

(g) The Australian river with the largest run-off by a very large margin is the Murray River.  As Sturt rather boldly stated when he progressed from the Murrumbidgee to a river he called the Hume, ‘I have found Australia’s Mississippi.’   This is not surprising when we consider that the Mighty Murray has a catchment of one million square kilometres which includes most of Australia’s snow country, a fact overlooked by our dishonest environmentalists.

The outflow from the Murray most years is over double that of our next biggest river, the Clarence.  The total storage capacity for all dams in the MDB including the Snowy Scheme is 29 million megalitres.  Measured at Euston these are some of the historical flows in the Murray River millions of ML/yr


1957 was an unusually dry year, and during the dry years of the Millennium Drought, the flow past Euston dropped below 2,400,000 megalitres in only one year.

The flow past this point in 2010 and 2011 which ended this drought is believed to be over 30,000,000 megalitres. each year and outflows have remained around this and above every year since.

So why is the Murray-Darling Basin Authority releasing around 2,400,000 megalitres of stored water every year into an already swollen river?   It is an absurd waste of a needed resource.  The lower Murray is always awash with more water than we can possibly use and this is why we can never successfully manage this resource until we build Chowilla Dam.

Recent debate about our water resources has been appalling to watch, and any rational arguments have been drowned out by the politics of perception.  Truth as expressed above has been washed away (pardon the pun) by media-generated emotion of myths of (5) ‘dying rivers’, (6) a water-starved environment, and (7) dead fish due to human factors not natural cycles.

My CONCLUSIONS from the facts we have

A   Australia’s water system is not overburdened by irrigation extractions, and would hugely benefit from more storage.

B   The system is over-regulated by multiple bureaucracies; from Canberra, the states, and local government and is not over-committed for irrigation. 

C   The lack of truth in public discourse relating to our water resources has not only killed off rational debate, but has undermined our human decency that flows from acceptance of that truth and unpins our respect for one another.

D   Previously-thriving communities built on the abundance of our water resources and a respect for one another’s ambition and enterprise are regressing.

E   Environmental bureaucrats continue to argue against the facts, and use their errors to justify the iniquitous Murray-Darling Basin Plan.  Federal action via the MDB Plan is an act of extreme incompetence and a depravity.  The mis-management of our largest water resource, the Murray-Darling system, is a sin against the people of Australia.

F   We need to build many more dams, especially the Chowilla Dam

G  If Prime Minister Albanese is serious about job and wage growth he must take the brakes off the peoples’ ‘Tools of Trade’, which are Water, Power, and Fuel.
