Given unlimited resources and unlimited help, I decided to drought proof Australia by developing a method of cracking carbon dioxide and using the funds generated from the sale of oxygen on the International market to fund the project. The impact of such a project would be enormous.
It would bring much needed permanent relief to drought stricken areas. It could reclaim the dessert using a “National Water Reticulation Pipeline” and increase the arable land by 27 times the present area.
It would increase the Australian GDP from $1.8 trillion to around $11 trillion, with a potential to increase the population to 254 million, based upon present population density figures. To achieve this water would be pumped from Lake Argyle, Lake Mcloud and the Normanby catchment areas.
