Above is an incredibly good interview between Sustainable Australia adviser, Kelvin Thomson, and 2GBs Michael McLaren, on the myriad of problems caused by the mass immigration ‘Big Australia’ policy.
Michael McLaren introduces the interview as follows:
What are some of the really big issues that people around the country and around our cites are talking about? Water shortages particularly in the cities. Dam levels are heading down to 50% and falling Many are talking about record multi-billion dollar infrastructure spends, particularly by state governments that are increasingly heading towards debt; Certainly, in Sydney, many people are talking about shoddy, rapidly builtcrumbling, high-rise apartment towers, and more broadly, the green elements of our society people are talking about increasing biodiversity loss.
These diverse topics have in common unsustainable rapid population growth. These are all symptoms of that root cause, and yet, the latest figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics show that Australia’s population growth is speeding up! In other words, all of those issues and more are only going to get worse.
And then Kelvin Thomson hits the ball out of the park.
If only the ABC had interviewers of this public interest standard.
