Re: "Sewage-plant opposition reeks of self-interest," Nov. 17.
How ironic that the letter-writer compares the debates on sewage treatment and climate change. With climate change, we have every respected scientific institute and virtually 100 per cent of climate scientists saying global warming is real, and humans are a primary cause.
On the sewage-treatment debate, we have zero scientists saying we need sewage treatment. There is zero scientific evidence, and not even the verbal opinion of a single ocean scientist that the sewage plan is a good one.
On the other hand we have numerous scientists saying our unique situation in Victoria provides natural, cost-free treatment superior to anything man can create.
The proposed sewage-treatment plan is simply a billion-dollar farce, based on no science whatsoever.
