What’s the key to restoring Australia’s natural resources?
In a nutshell, it’s about the science, and the science is that if we don’t know what’s there, what we need is to understand it.
And that is what we are doing.
The question of whether the science shows what we think it shows, the question of how much it will save us, that is the scientific question.
We are living an age where the scientific evidence is so overwhelming that, at a fundamental level, the answer is no.
And we have to recognise that the answer to that is no because the science of resource recovery is so far out there.
So the key question that we have, is that we need a better understanding of what we know.
How much does this matter to us?
What is the economic impact of it?
The economic impact depends on what we do, and that is really up to us.
We have to understand what the benefits are.
But we also have to look at the costs.
How can we maximise the benefits and minimise the costs?
We need to know what we’re getting, we need some information about what’s been lost.
And then we need something that is a more precise, better assessment of what the costs are and the benefits.
So, for example, the costs of the Great Barrier Reef have been very well-documented.
But that has not changed the answer that we are trying to get to that.
So what do we do?
So we’ve got the research to help us with that.
But, of course, there’s always going to be uncertainty about what to do, so we need the resources to be there for us.
But the research also has to be conducted to answer some very difficult questions about what we actually know.
What are the resources that are in the Great Australia?
Are there any resources that we know are gone?
And, if so, where are they?
What are they used for?
Are they used to build roads and to construct buildings?
Are we losing them?
So that’s what we’ve done.
The whole thing is to have a better, more precise understanding of the science.
What does that mean for us?
We’ve got a lot of knowledge now that is available that is of very high quality.
But in some cases, there are very few of those resources that you would actually want to use, because the resources we know we are losing are not in those places.
So you need to get into a position where you can use the information that you have.
You need to be able to assess the benefits, and you need some evidence that shows how much of the benefits of the resources are actually being used.
And so that’s why the information has to come from the science and the research, not from politicians or bureaucrats.
So when you look at those sorts of questions, you know, “Well, we don, we can’t get enough information,” you know?
And we don.
And if we can get enough of that information, we’ve been doing very well in restoring some of the valuable, important, unique resources that have been lost over time.
The first thing is the question that I’d like to tackle, is: What’s that information?
The science is very clear about the fact that we do need to understand the science around the Great Basin, the resources in that area, and what is there that’s been damaged by mining and by dams, and dams and the like.
But what does that actually mean for the people of the region, who are living with the impacts of that?
And that’s where the science comes in.
The science shows that there are a number of areas that are currently experiencing damage, particularly in the North, that are not currently producing any of those things that we’ve lost.
So we have lost our ability to build on the Great Rivers.
We lost our access to those rivers.
We haven’t had the opportunity to use the Great Lakes, and we don’ t have the opportunity now to use those rivers and those waters.
So those are areas that we really need to invest in to provide those things for the future.
And those are the areas that you need the research on, so that we can really understand what’s going on.
And when we look at that, we know that, in some areas, there is a substantial benefit to being able to do something in those areas.
But there’s also a lot that’s lost in the South.
So that is also a area where we have been spending a lot in order to develop and improve our infrastructure there, and to ensure that the people in that region have the opportunities that they deserve.
So in the last 10 years, the Great South Coast has gone from being the largest basin in the world to being the smallest.
So where are we today?
We’re currently at the lowest level of our recovery in the whole of the South Australia Basin.
