The Darling River-Letter to the Australian (unpublished)

Your headline “When the river runs dry, cry for the future” (The Weekend Australian-February 17-18),
could have more positively read “When the river runs dry, pray for rain!” If there had been no upstream irrigation extractions when river heights allowed, the lack of subsequent rain in the massive Darling catchment would still result in the absence of flows now being experienced.
