TONY ABBOTT STILL H A S N O T AT TA C K E D T H E M U R R AY B A S I N by NOLINE FRANKLIN, BSC (Hon), M.Medsc, PTC. 16 Years CSIRO Scientist/Snowy Mountain Farmer


Tony Abbott Murray Basin

TONY ABBOTT STILL HAS NOT TACKLED THE MURRAY BASIN ATROCITY FROM THE ALPS INFERNO The Australian Labour Party grew out of a shearers strike in Queensland in the 1880s. Claims of wages rorts, bad work place conditions with shearing sheds burnt down in protest. The Labour Party has harboured resentment for enterprise ever since fostering a ‘them and us’ attitude on good ship Australia all the way through to the Independents in the current South Australian State election being clandestine Labour Green candidates fooling their electorate not declaring their vested conflicts of interest and can be bought by a promise of a cabinet position in the Ministry. Deception is becoming a way of life for political candidates. Deals on telephones or coal mines, overseas travel on it goes, chalets in the ski fields, obstruction of ‘stockmen /fire fighters’ rescue packages for the Wonnangatta donkey orchid facing certain extinction from burial in rank grass and aggressive weeds before certain cremation in the entire sordid mess. In the 1980s, 100 years on from Jack Howes and others stand against sheep owners, Bob Hawke the Labour Party broke the drought and declared he’d rip Australia off the sheep’s back dig up the farms for a mineral energy boom. Neville Wran and other labour party stalwart premier of NSW was well on the way with his green cronies feeding the states sheep to their naturalised dingo wilderness weapon, bred and fed on recovered wildlife populations taken for salvation on grazing and forest leases Nev confiscated, used to buy swinging votes with public and national assets doubling the national park empire in NSW from about 2 to 4.5 million hectares 1976-1986. Doubling the fire hazard liability of once fire safe productive forests reliable for amenity, timber, relief grazing and clean sweet water. Trade in the woollen blankets, curtains, clothing for coal fired air conditioning if the bushfires did not burn the coal mines and poison the fire fighters with toxins and carbon monoxide first. Bob Carr the recycled globe trotting polly for Foreign Affairs, theft of farm water vegetation, and while NSW premier 1995-2005 bought more gang green votes with another 300 national parks including 65000 hectares of native timber plantation ready for harvest. Doubled the park empire again to about 8 million hectares of NSW locked up for the horror carbon trading excesses over the 1990 108% promised to 130+%. The 90+Mt CO2e annual allocation vilified NSW QLD farmers provided for free without interest for 25+ years to build billionaires in the mining, mineral smelting, energy and plantation timber industries, subsidised by Australian owned enterprises milked and laundered out of their assets. Riches dug out of the ground and exported without value adding through Australian owned steel industry, manufacturing, car industry, fruit cannery, renewable hardwood industry maintaining forest fire safety by removing thinnings value added for building materials, furnishings, paper, particle board etc. Value added product. Instead the Labour Green coalition drawn from the government and university ranks want the farms, forests, fisheries shut down for their tourist destinations, resort accommodation serving foreign food to foreign visitors. The thing called wilderness building the bonfire ready for the inevitable summer drought dry lightening storm to light the unstoppable bushfire. The public sector is notoriously Labour Green Socialist communist with aspirations for a Liberal lifestyle the public owe them for innovative ways of delivering indecision, inactivity, legitimising no service. How often are the public told “The person you were talking to about that matter has moved departments or positions or jobs!” Tony while revisiting the Tasmanian situation on forest agreements, national park claims you should also look at the forest outside your window in Canberra and winging off to Melbourne the vast canopy burn in the reformed Murray Basin. Particulate pollution off exotic plantation pulp mill investments, the coal fired electricity, open cut mine dust, urban sprawl wofting across the south east of Australia is doing a mischief to the rainfall across the Murray Darling food bowl.

Tony Abbott Murray Basin The Murray Darling collects water from tropical fronts that break through past the highlands of New Guinea and reach the inland overcoming any localised effects of dust, industrial particulates generated by paper pulp mills open cut mines drought affected lands, coal fired electricity, pollution from urban sprawl. Dust, tar from burning wood, coal, oil competes for moisture in clouds to form snow flakes and water droplets big enough to fall to the ground as snow, rain or hail. Excess nuclei to ratio of moisture droplets available it the moist weather front allows clouds to travel mute over the ground and once receiving salt particles and extra moisture over the ocean will rain water back into the sea not over the land. Orographic rain largely is recycled water evapourated flood water from the Murray Darling and recycled as snow and rain off the alps recharging the Murray river system between flood years. Alleviating the boom and bust cycles for farmers forests and the Murray inland environment. Collecting snow melt and rainfall in the alps in the Snowy dams Dartmouth, Eildon, Burrenjuck, Hume weir, Burrendong, Wyangala dams and other impoundments also allows water to be collected and held back in the higher country to be released when needed to finish rain fed crops and provide water for towns and cities. These reservoirs are flood mitigation resources and drought aid to maintain food security and the security of inland fisheries and ground water reserves.

The alps and inland Murray are interconnected in the water cycle. The land run in conjunction with the Federal ACT NSW Victorian government in a memorandum of understanding for management of 1.64 million hectares of the alps once reliably provided annually Murray catchment inflows of about 13100 giga litres (1 billion litres is a Gl) or the lions share of Murray inflows of 12323 Gl annually. Since the 2003-9 infernos this keystone area has become dysfunctional as a water supply because of canopy burn which has worstened the effect of the increasing particulate

Tony Abbott Murray Basin pollution levels to the west since Bob Hawkes mineral boom and cavalier approach to the farm sector assumed to be all expendable Liberal National voters! Does any one care how farmers vote as long as there is good and plentiful food in the outlets? In fact many Australian’s do not make the connection farmers feed them. The shops and cafés do!

Anyway you look at it the incineration of the high countries south east is a failed experiment of no grazing policies and fire suppression so fuel loads explode around any chance of fire fighting. What can various institutions tell the Australian people how this happened? The university ski club assuming the ultimate expertise over people out there managing to deliver the best water in the world, deal to the rabbit impact so damage was minimal, fight a couple of world wars. Lose a lot of skilled labour injure a lot more. World war two alone clocked up a national debt of almost 3000 million pounds. While everyone was distracted the conservation movement dug in taking the Snowy water. Throwing local rural communities out of their farms their towns publically scorned for unsubstantiated untrue claims of “damage and over grazing.” The war effort and rabbit plague since 1860 was forgotten. Sheep paid research levies for rabbit biological control since 1935 so sheep were the villains pumping farmers for more research funding. Boffins from CSIRO, Academy of Science, Soil Conservation NSW and Victoria, university botanists, immunologists recruited into the political lobby group of the Australian Conservation Foundation from 1966 expanding the national park empire across drought and summer relief grazing leases maintained fire safe, weeds and pests minimal. Stockmen paid cash and kind for their leases. Without notice or appeal they were terminated in a cloud of unsubstantiated claims and slander. Blow in boffins knew more about their adopted Australia than those families toiling for generations fighting wars to defend human rights and democratic processes while the experts worked the halls of Parliament setting up their careers on the spoils, because their owners were defending Australia in Darwin, enemy submarines in Sydney, 16 year old boys were defending New Guinea, Singapore. Their uncles flying in the Battle for Britain and the 6 million Jews sent to the gas chambers by a psychopath.

In the early 1980s Bob Hawkes government closed down the CSIRO Divisions of Cloud Physics. These researchers led the world from 1947 in understanding rainfall formation making rain, seeding clouds with dry ice (frozen carbon dioxide crystals to begin snowflake formation) to produce rain enough to fill the dams of the Snowy, Warragamba in the Sydney basin, the reservoirs of Chaffy and Copeton near Tamworth, the reservoirs in Tasmania, brought rain to the Perth water supply and wheat belt. Experimentally brought an extra 10-40+% of rainfall to areas offering suitable moisture fronts. The Snowy and Sydney supplies filled within ‘expected best case scenario’ of natural rainfall. 1963 to recently Tasmanian hydro worked with dirty cloud off Latrobe valley increasing rainfall by between 75-750 giga litres annually. Growing the forests and producing crops, hydro electricity among other uses. Bushfire suppression included. In 1983 Bob Hawke on a whim and on the cusp of computer and satellite technology stopped this division of CSIRO in an economic restructure! People said at the time it was inexplicable sabotage and those people affected were not consulted. While the Academy of Science is complicit with activities increasing particulate pollution, it appears against “fooling with nature” medicating dirty clouds to restore rainfall over the hated farm sector ruining the wilderness. A few millimetres of rain on wheat crops at a critical time was money in the bank for Australia. Give a giga litre of water to irrigation farmers and they can turn that into $2+M in produce. That produce value added from the farm gate to $16+M as retail and export earning. Grazing the high country enhances biodiversity, national water and food security against unstoppable lethal holocausts such as 2002-9 incidences. Instead of farmers leaving their grain and fodder lines to fight impossible fires their breeding flocks and herds could be on a win win drought aid program grooming the upper Murray vegetation to secure water recycling and forest safety. Bob Hawke said it was an economic decision to close the CSIRO Cloud Physics peer review science, eyes and ears of the people to the effects of his mineral boom for the Australian people. Shut down industry for our youth. Shut down progress and advance of the agricultural and native forest sector effective in hazard reduction fire security of open spaced vegetation. Shut down farmers capacity to develop better farming systems and progress efficiencies on a world market. Once the minerals and coal dug up and exported, Australia is left with broken, contaminated, underground water aquifers. No top soil, no jobs to value add those minerals, coal, gas, uranium, the fire killed forests carbon off sets, the dug up contaminated farms, destitute farm families politically misrepresented by mad men and greed. In 2009 Peter Garrett in the Rudd Government hastily shut down the CSIRO division of forestry and forest products just as the realities of the lethal Black Saturday inferno was hitting Victoria. The divisions library was disassembled and thrown into boxes obstructing the delivery of information available in forest management to prevent such mass extinction events as the Victorian and alpine fires. This was an act of anarchy on behalf of popstar polly Peter Garret as then Minister for Environment in Federal Government. A massive cover up of the implications of those fires for national water supply food security ever after. Craig Knowles once planning minister for Bob Carr in NSW presided over the Murray basin water reform signed off by Tony Burke, Mark Butler before the Rudd Gillard Government was thrown out declaring the Lower Murray endangered when in fact it is a moot point if the catchment intake is more endangered and dysfunctional leading to any ills of the lower Murray as the alps horrors are kept secret by a number of clandestine not so public enquiries with tightly designed terms of reference locking out key information to keep the paying public unaware of the real goings on.

Tony Abbott Murray Basin Satellite photos across Australia show industrial particulate pollution sources as (yellow) rainfall inhibited cloud flowing out of South Australia and Victoria depending on the wind direction. Red cloud is clean cloud. Rainfall across the Murray basin and alps is increasingly disrupted from particulates increasing drought and water shortages. Combine dirty cloud with vast canopy burn in the alps and drought bushfires will be a way of life, living legacy of the Australian Labour party and green coalitions pathological hatred or envy of farmers the hand that feeds, waters, clothes and houses them. Green being the light wavelength useless and rejected reflected off plants! More and more Australians feel the same about the mean green machine gang green in government. Particulate pollution is causing climate change by interfering with rainfall. Carbon dioxide, sulphur dioxide are only indicator gases dreamed up to tax the people consumerists and keep the pollies and bureaucrats highly paid for selling out the Australian people. Burning and exporting their coal, exporting jobs, burning down their locked up forests denied cool fire for city carbon off sets, denied smokey vista for wilderness tourists.

Water evapourated out of the ocean moves across Adelaide, off the land, out of lake Eyre, off irrigated crops and forests used to be recycled by rain and snow falling in the Upper Murray catchment or Snowy mountains. Since the 1930s snow and rainfall on the alps has been declining from dirty cloud wofting off urban and industrial sites. Farmers accused of “over grazing” “over clearing” “over cropping” “over burning” are being used as scapegoats when the townies are not so perfect smoke jockeys. Our Academy of Sciences have done bugger all to deal with industrial particulates as they sit in their affluence bagging farmers and deceiving the people to fund more science at the ski resorts saving frogs and possums not yet victims of bushfire, drought or starvation, eaten by pigs, dogs, foxes, cats or buried in von Muellers blackburies! And the Hawkweed infestation.

Tony Abbott Murray Basin All will be overcome by Craig Knowles, Bob Carr’s NSW planning Minister, reforming irrigators out of the ‘smaller shrinking water cake’ sending bigger slices of the water cake to Adelaide, Melbourne, Canberra where the manipulative boffins and bureaucrats live and making artificial snow out of sewage for their ski resorts to make up for the shortfall of snow inhibited by polluted cloud and the effects of vast canopy burn, vegetation fire killed, incinerated in soil cons mountains of mulch built bonfire by ‘dingo pack driven no graze policies’ and industrial strength gadget fire suppression policies!

Tony Abbott Murray Basin Effluent of the affluent makes Australian snow, complete with a garnish of globe trotters diseases, spread by dingo and foxes lapping up the legacies. Why would you take your children on a ski holiday or camping in the Snowy? Boil the water and the catchment! Brumbies are put at risk drinking this stuff. Tell us who should really be shot for impacts on water quality Tony?

Australia has 100s of kilometres of groomed snow made ski runs recycled waste water a nice word for sewage. Effluent of the Affluent carefully contaminates rural community water supplies avoiding the pristine catchments of Canberra, Melbourne, Sydney where the globe trotting ski bunnies, boffins and bureaucrats have their origins. Alcohol and wilderness weed orgies worth A$Bs. Stuff themselves with wine, cheese, roast beef, rack of lamb, side salad, chips, fruit platter and nuts, fried rice, sweet and sour pork, drink a toast to Australian farmers denied drought aid grazing the alps, the Barmah, the forests of the south east, pilliga……. Farmers sent in as volunteers with a red truck paid for by their fire levies to fight fires in impossible fuel loads lovingly accumulated to offset air travel, the archaic energy and transport systems starved of funds redirected at yuppie wages and conditions, rorts and ‘party politics.’ Sell off a few more public and national assets to pay interest on the national debt. Tony the reality is the Liberal Coalition was sitting on watch or was in the box seat when Rio, Kyoto treaties were signed off or ratified by the gang green in government departments or their environmentalist activists cronies, RAMSAR, world heritage listed Kakadu dingo zoo chomping up more wildlife and burning every summer in the Federal run Northern Territory. Bob Hawke is selling off the Ord river irrigation for Chinese biofuel. Cubbie stations gone with 200Gl water in Queensland to foreign ownership. Toorali sold up for Peter Garrett’s and Penny Wong’s feral pig farm. Yanga complex gone the same way. The stud sheep are gone! No cotton, no wool, no meat, no tourists want to watch the rats in the woolshed rafters of Yanga, Mungo, Toorali and all the other farms bought up for national park empires because farmers are better biodiversity conservationists than boffins.

The purchase of Toorali irrigation farm in Burke by Peter Garrett then Federal Minister for Environment and pop music with the then Water Minister from Adelaide, Penny Wong have spent public money on a feral pig farm as since the purchase the pigs have made a job of the water bird nests and other biodiversity Toorali supported. Declaration of land as national park is a key threatening process for Australia’s biodiversity. Garrett said at the time “Grazing was not in keeping with conservation goals.” Many people without Pete’s Arts Law qualifications have noticed how Australian species of plants and animals seek out not only grazing activity by domestic farm animals but also rather enjoy the water supplies and irrigation activities the fresh green crops, the fruit, vegetables, nuts and grains farmers produce. Insects, fish, frogs, birds, mammals, control of the weeds and pests such as dingo, foxes, cats and the pigs not taking over Toorali while farmers managed the place. I wonder if the Penny has dropped. The Murray Darling Basin management is dysfunctional from the alps to Burke and back. Has Pete & Penny been back to see the results of their handy work shutting down the Burke community for another empty promise of a tourist boom and more water for Adelaide. Natural record flood back to back with the ‘man made flood environmental flows’ to drown even the ancient red gum forests not just the ephemeral regrowth. Could be worth a protest song Pete. Bob Brown could sing harmony. * Yes Australia the Australian Labour Party has ripped the heart out of the sheep industry fed to the dingos and animal rights arm of the environmental movement over cosmetic surgery farmers offer their sheep’s backsides to enhance them as the TV news readers use Botox and cosmetic surgery to keep their jobs to the tune of a $300+M industry in Australia

Tony Abbott Murray Basin *Bob Hawkes mineral boom stripping 10-30% off the rainfall of the Murray basin. *Soil cons mountains of mulch inferno canopy burn stripping off the water recycling 10% Murray inflows in a flood year and 50+% in a dry year. *We haven’t yet talked about the over vegetation destroying run off in dysfunctional fire injured forests incinerated alps national parks and wilderness that have been burnt hot enough to come back 7000+ trees to the hectare before the next fire obliterates regeneration fully. Seed, soil underground vegetation cooked next time in the green-man made bonfire. *We have not talked about the monoculture plantation exotics planted 2000+ to the hectare in deep ripped ground where there is no run off. Dingo affected farms and pastures bought up for billionaire’s monopoly plantation forest industries superannuation green investments in the high rainfall zones where Bob Carr shut down forestry selective logging of native forests as fire mitigation management to value add his exclusive plantation industry, city carbon off set on dingo affected farms generated by Neville Wran’s deals with the jackboot gang green environmental activists naturalising the introduced Asian dingo without the consultation of the Australian people finding it difficult to afford to feed their families. Water engineers in the ski club apparently endorse the dingo as their no graze agent in city water catchments due to burn as never before possible denied even wildlife grazing. Regional forest agreements hang like toilet rolls in a disused inner city train yard. Where was the Howard Abbott government when Kyoto was stitched up by their environmental departments carrying on from the Hawke Keating era? John Kerin throwing the wool floor price under the bus, the Bracks Brumby government sabotaging Kennett’s Geelong Wool initiative for a local wool industry. Yes sheep and wildlife kept Australia’s watersheds fire safe biodiverse and producing wool meat timber as well as water enough for irrigators. Where are the 30000 farmers of NSW and Queensland that have bought and owned farms locked up vegetation for Kyoto 25 years on? About $5+B worth a year plus interest in carbon off sets subsidising Hawkes mineral boom particulates pollution stuffing the rainfall and Murray water recycling. All the Bobs and others float around the world on big pensions leaving Australia’s industry moribund. Lives ruined and lost! How much rain now runs off their over vegetated woody weed infested ‘farms’ into the upper Darling system? Enough water to keep Adelaide’s fountains in water, her rose gardens and lush green cricket pitches. Wash Penny Wong’s babies bottle? Yes Australia one can assign about 3000 giga litres run off annually minimum to the particulate pollution and the canopy burn losses Craig Knowles readjusted off farmers slandered for using too much water, theft and over allocated by highly paid experts. Water resented for use on pastures for dairies dislocated by urban sprawl, rice and cotton. Canberra has to shoot Snowy Brumbies to take their fire safe runs in the Upper Murrumbidgee for Canberra’s new water supply. If they had not obliterated the Cotter Canberra catchment Brumbies in the 1980s, bred up the dingo to obliterate the Cotter wildlife, push dingo harassed kangaroo into the Canberra suburbs to be shot and run over, then perhaps the Ginini Ramsar and the Cotter basin would still produce some water. 200000 hectares of the Upper Murrumbidgee was rendered fire safe not burnt in 2003 because Brumby mobs and travelling cattle kept the vegetation grazed green fire safe, Tony tell Minister Hunt in his deliberations over sending 60 head of cattle back to the Wonnangatta Station where 1200 cattle were employed to bring the region up to national park standard. Wildflowers, water, wildlife abundant and fire safe! Wonnangatta a ripe cherry to pick by the bushwalking boffins and bureaucrats. Tony after the budget about how much we are in the red hits the streets and the borrowings from China are being paid off in farm land and mining, have another look at the Murray Darling Basin and this time look at the state of intake in the alps including the bit memorandum of understanding between the Commonwealth NSW ACT and Victoria. The 1.64 million hectares that used to yield 13100 giga litres run off before the serial cooking 2002-9 and the bonfire built because the fox was in the hen house running the ACT Bushfire Coronial, the NSW Bushfire Coronial, agencies boycotted the Garry Nairn Federal enquiry, the Royal Commission in Victoria was run by the

Tony Abbott Murray Basin same old show ponies giving bad advice to government to build the bonfire in the first place. Some bloke counted 2000 burnt twigs as a definitive scientific denial grazing does not reduce blazing. He did such a convincing job they’ve sent him up to burn the wildlife off Kakadu, too. Tony as a fire fighter you need have a look at the risk our national capital is at for fire impact and the mindless removal and extermination of Brumby mobs the last remaining effective fire fighting mechanism protecting the water catchments of the south east including Canberra’s move to the Upper Murrumbidgee to source water. While Brumbies might have impact their total absence will see even greater impacts!

Stockmen were accused of “over burning.” They now know they were armatures. Experts build the bonfire for decades and ready for a dry summer down wind of the city smog when the dry lightening storms are highest quality. Burn vast areas uncontrollably to deliver climate change in full. Educate the Australian people to be accepting, and nothing could be done Australia has fires and the man made fuel loads are gone tell the coroner and Royal Commissioner.

Only Brumbies are shot for impacts on water quality?
