I read with interest

14.05.18

I read with interest the KAP project on the upper Burdekin River recently. Bob Katter wants federal funding to establish what is known as the Upper Burdekin Irrigation Scheme to irrigate the vast plains of the North West in order to grow sugar cane in order to produce ethanol as an addition to Australian petrol in order to emulate Brazil and lower our carbon footprint with regards to emmisions.

E10 is a more efficient burning fuel but sadly only Queensland has mandated it because of our abundance  of sugar cane farms. I support any measure in lowering Australian emissions alongside the proposed hydroelectricity power station to be established at the Burdekin Falls Dam site, and if this proposal which includes the Hells Gate dam can proceed it all goes well for North Queensland development, and of course prosperity and employment.
