Desalination continued

An article in The Age 'Pass on the Salt'

When you read the article you will see we are going to pay on average $1000 per annum for water, going from the cheapest in Australia to the most expensive. And this is to pay for just one desalination plant that will only supply a fraction of Victoria's water needs. Using Brown Coal, to power it. [Off set by wind turbines].
The article also mentions that a $1 billion plan to reuse rain run off has been shelved because it is too long term, whatever that means.
What a joke these so called experts are.
P.S. The politicians wont have a problem paying their water bills, the federal pollies are getting another 6-7% pay rise a year after the last.
