If the sun spot readings prove correct, the Australian drought will break this year, with plentiful rainfalls into 2008, and normal rainfall patterns for the following decade.
However, our fuzzy-headed politicians will then only have ten brief years to get their act together to build real infrastructure, and to put in place real, equitable and appropriate water management plans, before an even worse drought hits by around 2020.
They can’t claim ignorance, or not having a crystal ball or chicken entrails to predict the future of water in this country. Read the sun spots stupid. They’ve been told. Mark the date.
