It was pleasing to read about the progress of the East Grampians Rural Pipeline ("Rural pipe dream closer to reality", July 24).
The pipeline was a discussion point when I lived in Hamilton 20 years ago.
But because the pipeline will be fed by Lake Fyans, the Wimmera River, Lake Bellfield, and other lakes, Grampians Wimmera Mallee Water managing director Mark Williams is right to express concern about the effects of climate change and the less predictable rainfall being experienced by the region.
So I was surprised to read in the Advertiser's article in October last year that several Wimmera and Grampians mayors expressed doubts about the nature and urgency of climate change.
Over 30 councils in Victoria think climate change is so serious and urgent that they have declared or acknowledged a climate emergency, and have developed detailed climate action plans.
Two thirds of Australians agree that Australia is facing a climate change emergency.
It's the responsibility of our public officers to get up to speed with climate change, and fast.

WHERE IS THE GOOD NEWS?
When was the last time you heard some good news on TV? We hear plenty about the second stage or like baseball says: Strike 2. How many new cases, how many in hospital, in ICU, lockdown's, masks etc.
All bad news! Have you ever heard the good news? Like how many have recovered and gone home?
That is really good news.
