With the country currently undergoing the most severe drought in 100 years, a recent report on the water supply from the Murray-Darling river system concludes that although there is sufficient drinking water until next year (2009), the water supply beyond that point is not assured. Speaking of the basin’s current condition, Climate Change Minister Penny Wong said the drought is a reminder of how susceptible Australia is to the effects of climate change.

Our thanks, Minister Wong, for raising awareness about this most pressing issue. We pray for the blessing of rain to arrive in Australia as the world’s citizens strive to take the necessary steps to restore the natural harmony of our planetary home.
