    Lots of people will only think water science is important when the hyper saline water fills the gulfs and fish stocks go down causing higher costs for seafood.

    Water science covers lots of different areas in our environment and as a drought stricken country it is very important that we maintain adequate supply of fresh usable water for agriculture as well as for drinking.

    Some of the Chaplains that have been given funding, are groups that are openly anti gay, and have lobbied against homosexuality. And yet the Abbott government has gotten rid of funding to actual trained professionals like psychologist, arrrgh!

    It really is sickening. Chaplains have no place in public schools. We have students that don't have parental permission to speak with our chaplain. Where is their access to counselling then?

    Imagine the outcry if this funding was for imams!

    Too true! I seem to recall a major water contamination in Sydney's drinking supply about 14 or 15 years ago. Talk about short memories.

    How long ago was the Sydney water outbreak where the water supply became unsafe? Long enough for many on here (young uns) to not remember. I think it was Cryptosporidium causing the issues but may be wrong and happy to be corrected. It was science, not the church, that identified the cause and sorted that. It's possible we take safe water for granted in this country.

    Not a great mind by a long shot, but definitely an interested mind. I like to read things, and know things. Apathy breeds ignorance and all that kind of stuff!
