Climate: the elephant in the room for Northern Australia

Steve Turton writes in The Land (22.6.15) 

‘The (recently released) white paper has not referenced high-quality expert advice prepared by the Northern Australian Land and Water Task Force.

The task force report elaborates a great deal about the environmental limitations for broad acre agriculture and cropping across the north, citing poor and easily damaged soils, highly seasonal and erratic rainfall and complex surface and groundwater hydrology, as major constraints for many areas of the north.’
