Why can't we as a nation build a pipeline from the overflowing North Qld rivers to the headwaters of the Darling? If we can build the Snowy Mountains Scheme, something like this would be a walk in the park. This would be part of a multi-layered approach to solving the Murray Darling's problems.

Peter is right!

G'day All There was a show down here on the public TV station in Melbourne last week. It was about a river in Switzerland. The river had been canalized in rock-lined banks. The government over there removed the rocks and let it form meanders and billabongs again. They planted Peter's favourite-Willo...

Goyder Line

Hello Duane Are there any properties using Peter's principles north of the Goyder Line or in the dry west of NSW or Vic, or any other really dry part of the country? If so, how are they going at the moment at this time? I saw that 'Greening the Desert' flick on the permaculture website which it seem...

Why Shirley Because these things are run by the same 'watermelons' who tell us that dams don't make water! Ask Mr Brumby betcha he has at least one of these 'non-water making' dams on his farm. Same as why we haven't built a non-poluting nuclear power station in this country. Where are the solar pan...

And the CO2 which has been produced since the 'Industrial Revolution' has increased global temperatures by how much?? And how much 'climate change' have we had since then? :oops:

Angela Firstly we need to build the Nuclear Power Stations we should have built 20 years ago! If you are familiar with Melbourne, there is the Dandenong South 'Offensive Industries Zone'. That is where you put all those smelly factories you dont want over your back fence. It is very close to the Sou...

Duane Here! Here! This is an interesting take on the causes of global warming http://www.geocraft.com/WVFossils/greenhouse_data.html I believe the current program of carbon sequestration is wrong and potentially deadly for mankind. There are two oxygen atoms to every carbon atom in CO2. If you are g...

The future of slashing

Hello Nik

Well apart from animals eating the plants directly, what about a bit of horsepower?

What they don't directly eat, they can pull the slasher for, and you have an environmentally friendly 'exhaust' !
:D

Dam(n) the Government!

As a non-farmer would I be right in saying that part of the 'Keyline' process is having a number of smal dams across your property? Therefore having these dams you have to pay the government for the 'privilige' of capturing and storing the water that falls on your own land? But with NSF you can dig ...

Casting Pearls before Swine

G'day I went to 'FarmWorld' at Lardner Park in Gippsland, Victoria this week. At the Dept of Primary Industries stand, I asked the weed people about Peter and Natural Sequence Farming. Not only did I get a blank look and the response that they didn't know who and what I was talking about. I would go...

Microclimate

Hello Peter & Duane Have you noticed any change in the microclimate at Tarwyn Park? I saw an article on landline last year about a fellow in the western district of Victoria who had planted hundreds & hundreds of trees over the last 30-40 years. He was saying that there was a change in the microclim...

Hello Brett
If you go to the Landcare website they have a program called CARBONSmart, where the government pays you to grow trees.

Greening the Desert

Hello Duane My own suburban backyard looks like a piece of corrugated iron, wouldn't know where to find the highest point, my own newly started compost heap is hidden out of the way behind the garage. Why aren't KEV07, the Murray-Darling Basin Commission, the Department for Sidestepping Everything a...

Salinity

If irrigation and the application of artificial fertilizers are the harbringers of salinity, why aren't suburban gardens salt encrusted deserts?
