In a media release in which he mispells his own name (see image below) John Hargreaves would have us believe that environmental flows have made no difference to our water situation.
“If every single litre of water that had left the ACT in the form of environmental flows since 2003 had been withheld, Canberra would be facing a similar situation to the one it faced today”
The trouble with something as concrete as water is that it leaves little room for detached spin wankers to work with, either it’s there or it’s not.
But if you would believe a man who can’t spell his own name then all the water that we have expelled from our dams has not actually left!
In which case one has to wonder if we have met our obligations at all.
We have obligations to the rest of the system and environmental flows are part of that, but let’s not lie to the public and suggest that we can release water from our emptying dams without having lost water.
