2GB’s Alan Jones with Jennifer Marohasy
Alan Jones from Sydney radio station 2GB and Jennifer Marohasy BSc, PhD discuss the Murray Darling Basin Authority and the Murray Darling Basin Plan.
This interview is interesting not only for its content, but because it is heard throughout 2GB’s metropolitan Sydney listening area.

Alan discusses the logic of the MDBA embarking on a $13,000,000,000 taxpayer funded purchase of farmer water entitlements without first completing an assessment of the environmental benefit or the economic cost.
Jennifer discusses the advantage of letting Lakes Alexandrina and Albert in South Australia return to their natural estuarine condition and therefore save the 1,000,000,000 litres of fresh water supplied by the Murray River that currently evaporates from the lakes’ Port Phillip Bay size area.
Alan’s assessment of the MDBA Basin Plan (drum roll…); One big lump of rubbish !
