Here's my "10 year challenge" contribution:
First off: Sorry this is not the fun🤩, care-free🤙, light-hearted post you may have hoped for. But this is close to my heart❤ and sometimes we have to put on our big person pants and get really angry😡😡... Why?
Commercial cotton 🌱 growers in Australia have managed to corrupt the LNP at state and federal levels and evade critical environmental protections so as to steal nearly half (11,000 GIGALITRES🚱) the total water💧held in the Murray-Darling River. Chemical fertiliser runoff ☣from destructive operations, such as commercial cotton/fruit🍏/veg🥕 "farms", runs into the river providing abundant nutrient for the algae which then blooms uncontrollably, sucking up all of the available oxygen & giving off toxic☠ chemicals in return...😪 With not enough water💧to feed more oxygen down the river system, algal blooms thrive. Then add blistering heat 🔥 and lack of rain, and our native endangered fish🐟 are dying in the millions - in a soup 🥣of man-made poison.⚠️⚠️⚠️ To the following 👿💩:

You have been corrupted by big agri-business. We entrusted you with our most critical asset: the environment and you failed catastrophically to manage and protect it. You allowed water theft and blocked prosecution by the regulator. WTF??!! The government owned media (ABC and SMH) have neglected to report the underlying cause of this tragedy: corruption within Lib-Nat government ranks.
For anyone interested here's a satirical overview of this catastrophe:
Please share this far and wide. Tag your local MP. Let them know there will be blood at the next elections if the businesses and politicians responsible are not fully held to account!!! They will try to wriggle out of this. Don't let them!
