I'm Worried ; I mean really worried . No ,, not like those who think the sky is falling . They are common enough eh? If only they knew what 1:1000 means for sustainable planning.

I'm worried .I mean about where has reason gone! We are very used to seeing the polys panic and the city panic ( esp at election time ) but now even those who claim to represent science ( Dr Williams of this Wentworth group )can't defend the place for irrigation in a 1000 yr drought and help keep the balance .We should be worried when they all agree to something simple ---they are just as likely to do something silly !

People need experts but will they get them .
PM Howard knows the river darking made an off th cuff remark about the 1:1000yr drought .

Asked directly by reporters if Australia was in the worst drought in 1000 years, Mr Howard said he was not qualified to make that judgment. ( congrats Mr howard!)

Treasurer Peter Costello has previously said that the drought, which has crippled vast tracts of rural land since 2001, could become the worst in Australian history, while Mr Howard has described it as the worst in living memory.

But most pundits call it a one in 100 year drought."

Are scientists gamblers or spin merchants ? whose who these days
neithe powerbrokers respect those who do . see productionecologists
