Swayed by the powerful arguments of Cate Blanchett, Bob Ellis, and Alison Broinowski, federal and state governments have abandonedplans to sell their shares in the Snowy Mountains Hydro scheme.

It’s nice that Cate, Bob, and Alison believe the Snowy scheme to be an “iconic enterprise” and a “marker of our aspiration.” Construction of the iconic marker took 25 years, and involved clear felling thousands of native trees, among other massive environmental stompings. Imagine, please, the rage from Bob ‘n’ Cate were plans for a similar project announced today.
