FORE­SIGHT MISS­ING

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - OPINION OURS & YOURS -

What truly bril­liant gov­ern­ments we have.

Aside from the in­crease in pop­u­la­tion, our en­ergy sup­plies are in jeop­ardy through age­ing power sta­tions, but the gov­ern­ment will not build any new power sta­tions. Their so­lu­tion? Teach peo­ple how to save power and use less. The same with wa­ter. No new dams, or plans to har­vest wa­ter from the north. In­stead they will let the wa­ter run out to sea and then de­sali­nate it.

Their so­lu­tion? Im­pose wa­ter re­stric­tions and show peo­ple how to save wa­ter. Is there some­thing we have done to de­serve politi­cians with­out a sker­rick of fore­sight?
