    Sorry Bob, didn't mean to cut your lunch.

    I saw it this morning on my weather site and thought the info was very good.

    Does bob own weather?

    Quick review of the 2019 link
    "" As a result of prolonged drier-than-usual weather, water storage levels at the end of May were lower than the same time last year in every capital city except for Perth. Sydney and Melbourne both reached their lowest water storage levels in nine years last month.
    So, what types of weather can we expect to see around Australia during the next few months?"

    Result- Possibly the worst bushfires events ever widely across Australia . So good it got wikki




    My turn I love the water

    50% of the coral on the great barrier Reef is D.E.A.D.


    Several of my Diving mates have said its worse in spots they dive on now. The time for cynical fools is over to late I feel.

    Not nice to read about but there ain't nothing any of those over paid fools in all our parliaments can do to stop climate change although they will spend billions of our dollars on silly schemes trying to do so. Stopping pollution as much as possible is a different matter entirely.

    Repairing rotting timber railing at work with REPLAS which is being delivered tomorrow. A recycled plastic work bench to build to try and make myself feel just that little bit better. All of my other work benches are removed timber from building and office demolitions I run past and dumpster dove with my disco roof rack making that easy

    I did have permission each time promise so I am not a true dumpster diver

    Replas is providing a significant resource from recycled plastic waste. Costing me a bit more than the free timber I have been using. Money and My mouth meet for once? Good night

    Last time I looked last week Sydney was at 95% .

    What a difference a few months makes Eh.
    disaster narrowly averted yet again.

    Wetter than usual is "The Bureau of Meteorology is forecasting above average spring rainfall for most of eastern Australia due to the potential development of La Nina, as well as warmer ocean temperatures in the eastern Indian Ocean.


    Warmer conditions and above average temperatures are likely, especially in the north of Australia and the far southeast including Tasmania.


    "


    News that half the corals in the Great Barrier Reef have been lost in the past two decades is alarming enough, but experts say alarm at findings of dramatic coral losses is drowning out even greater concerns for survival of the entire marine ecosystem.

    The Centre of Excellence for Coral Studies published findings this week that the number of corals have halved in the past twenty years, on average across the 340,000 square kilometre reef.

    Its still wet on the reef.
    Wet




    Wet and dead sadly

    I still am a little shocked by this so excuse me for harping. After Diving around the world I have seen some underwater places destroyed that sometimes was recovered when people stopped doing stupid thing. Dynamite fishing in the Philippines is one example.


    On the Great Barrier Reef fishing, tourism and huge money is going to be lost with out significant changes. Fiddling around the edges would stop the loss of one of the real wonders of the world.

    Blowing up historic sites such as by ISIL which blew up World Heritage Sites in Palmyra (Syria) or Rio Tinto's Juukan Gorge blasts seem to have attracted more attention than what I feel/think is a much worse issue which needs urgent attention. In 2016 "Great Barrier Reef region -$12 billion revenues and directly support over 100,000 jobs" Why nothing may be done could be in 2018 "Coal was the highest earning export commodity for the year, accounting for $66 billion in export revenue, bolstered by improved prices and and volumes driven by demand from large Asian markets." Not sure how much of that was QLD, I doubt where the coal comes from matters really. Rant over.

    Grab a snorkel and swim if your lucky enough to be near some rivers to in my preference salt water. If the lock down is backed off here in Melbourne a bit tomorrow; I am off for a paddle in my little canoe, from Warrandyte to Melbourne. Just might keep going to Williamstown assuming I can convince some one to pick me up. Have a great weekend.

    Interesting to see that SE Water (Qld) have started up our desalination plant as water stocks have dropped below 60% capacity.

    Most Brisbanites wouldn't even realise that we are on the brink of water restrictions .

    I still cannot understand why we don't power the very expensive to run desal plant on renewable energy.

    We now await whatever joys our purported weather systems are going to bring to us.

    Thousands of new houses , new roads , drains and streets haven't really seen a drop of rain yet.

    Could be interesting.
