Wentworth Group of Concerned Scientists lies undermine their credibility

4 Dec 2017 3:36 PM -

The Wentworth Group of Concerned Scientists (Wentworth Group) spokesperson Dr. Jamie Pittock is deliberately being dishonest when describing progress on implementation of the Murray-Darling Basin Plan and environmental outcomes achieved. The Plan is on track and Basin Water Ministers have continually reaffirmed the commitment to ensure the Plan is delivered in full.

The Ricegrowers’ Association of Australia (RGA) President Jeremy Morton said, “It is extremely concerning that Dr. Pittock, representing the Wentworth Group is choosing not to apply good scientific rigour to their assessment of the progress of Basin Plan implementation. This is especially concerning when The Murray-Darling Basin Authority (MDBA) and Commonwealth Environmental Water Office (CEWO) have clearly identified that environmental outcomes are being achieved following thorough and rigorous evaluation and monitoring.”
