Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
do they seriously expect to hold all that water and decades worth more besides forever ?

Or do they have a cunning plan ?

This has just got to be the dumbest project anywhere on planet earth right now. Even more than burning the amazon rainforest or growing wheat in australia.

They are one mistake away from crippling water systems all the way to hudson Bay. Maybe they think they're expendable .. but I bet they aren't.

keep to the Fen Causeway

... sense to grow wheat in Oz. Of course, they don't grow wheat in those places.

How about using "growing rice in Australia" as an example ... now there is one that is pure madness for a dry country. And its irrigated rice with water from a river system that sometimes flows green and backwards.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
