No it doesn't.
Australia has been through a period of about 25 years of stable, economic growth (including during the GFC) largely because of our immigration process. We also have an aging population and without this growth we would soon be overcome by retiree's and pensioners out numbering those of working age.

Most people know this and see a good immigration policy as necessary for our continued success.

Interesting.

But sustainable...?

Didn't you go through this with the rabbits?



if govt doesn't screw it up, and they probably will, it's at the very least sustainable for another 50 years.


What's sustainable for another 50 years? :roll :roll :roll :roll :roll :roll :roll :stay :gsp :gsp :gsp :gsp :gsp :gsp

Interesting, the 'current' immigration levels would be sustainable for another 50 years?
But does that mean, we don't get a bigger population that the 25 million we currently are to remain sustainable for another 50 years?

Of course we'd get more than 25 million. That's not necessarily a bad thing. Don't believe all the idiots who claim all our land is mostly uninhabitable. Italy has 60 m people and it's only slightly larger than Victoria. What part of Victoria is uninhabitable?

Any part of it that is near water since everything in or even near the water eats humans in Australia.

Yes I know, have been to Italy in 2001, and when I thought how it would fit in Victoria, the size of that country, and yet with a population of about 3 times the people we had here in Oz, back then, I was gobsmacked!

Yet there was still beautiful countryside and mountains, etc. I didn't see anything like desert there, but then again, I haven't travelled the whole country of Italy. I get the feeling there are lots greenery there in the countryside or areas lessly populated.

It's seems much the same of England, same small country that would fit in Victoria, then 3 times the population, but so green over there in their less populated areas.

Their winters in Italy and England, are colder than here, with snow, and their summers seem so hot, hotter than I can cope compared to ours.

Different kind of summer feeling for some reason.

Water is the one thing that is needed for new towns/cities to survive in, and I do wish they made more big cities out in the middle of nowhere, but pipe works would take forever, and then drain the water from where? Unless it's desalinated water, and that costs a bundle to run. And then, putting back very salty concentrate back into the ocean, can't be good for the sealife.

Catchment areas, like big dams, are a good idea, but need the rainfall.

haha, of course, if we go into the ocean, it is a sharks dinner table, we are asking for it.
Really, it's not that bad, just occasionally, a bit like Russian Roulette. Now in the NT etc crocadiles, that's a different matter, and seems the crocs are increasing in population more than they should for some reason?

I was up in Cairns Queensland about 3 years ago, and there is warning everywhere about crocodiles if we go to the beach, but their beach is yukky and muddy, with broken glass everywhere when the tide is down.
