Satellite view clearly
shows how dry Australia is. The little green areas are on the
East/ Southeast coast and in the North. Everywhere else is very
dry with 6 deserts. There is only about 100 km of vegetation
from the ocean to the outback. Australia depends largely on
technology to irrigate land and pastures, and it's unlikely that
it could support a large population without resolving the water
problem. It is one of the driest continents in the world. A
Doctor of Physics told us Australia cannot supply water by
natural means to more than 30 million inhabitants.
Desalinization of sea water is an expensive alternative.
population of about 20 million, live
mainly in coastal areas, where the climate is more pleasant,
mostly on the East side of the continent. The top part of
Australia is very hot during the summer, with seasonal storms
and cyclones. The center is characterized by deserts and dry air
with many "long-ago" dried lakes. The land is these
areas is extremely salty, and even with irrigation is not proper
to grow plantations. The South and Southeast are pleasant and
green, receiving the most of Australia rainfall.
