WE should always listen to “the experts”, just as governments insist. And then always check for ourselves.
See, only a couple of years ago “the experts” at Melbourne Water insisted on behalf of the warmist Brumby government there was no point in building a cheap dam on the Mitchell River.
It wouldn’t fill because of global warming.
This weekend, Melbourne’s dams reached 75.1 per cent capacity, their highest level in 15 years. And the Mitchell has flooded three times since.
Thing is, other experts – not employed by the government – rightly predicted the rain would again fall, but the polite media – The Age and ABC – refused to heed them.
