Why Over a Million Fish Are Dying in the Murray Darling: Uncommon Sense
Federal Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources David Littleproud has recently blamed the drought for the ecological catastrophe that’s afflicting the Murray Darling. But Dr John Williams (Wentworth Group of Concerned Scientists) explains that this blame is misplaced, because the government ought to be proactively managing river flow regimes in the first place, in order to lessen the effects of the drought. John calls Uncommon Sense fill-in host Ben Eltham for a comprehensive discussion about the extraordinary failings of the existing legislation and what needs to be done to save the Murray Darling.
