MP Jeremy Buckingham’s vomit-inducing fish kill video

Her comments come a day after the minister for primary industries and water, Niall Blair, was criticised for bypassing a large gathering of people waiting to ask him questions on a visit to Menindee.
"Unfortunately this is the sort of thing we do see during drought", he said.
In the town itself, the stench from rotting fish carcasses near the main boat ramp wafts into the Burke and Wills Menindee Motel.
Up to a million fish have died in an Australian river in "an ecological catastrophe on an global scale".
Dead fish float on the surface of the Darling River at Menindee, in far west NSW.
Cotton Australia said drought was affecting the river system and that the industry was also suffering, forecasting its crop this season would be half of the previous year's.
"It is an ecological catastrophe on an worldwide scale".
In a video that has been viewed almost 4 million times, Menindee resident Dick Arnold and rancher Rob McBride say the fish kills are "a manmade disaster". The latest fish die-off, along with other signs of wildlife and human populations hard hit by drought and heat, add to the likelihood that water will feature in this year's coming federal and NSW state elections.
The immediate cause of Menindee's calamity was a change in temperatures that killed much of the blue-green algal bloom on that part of the river. The dying algae worsened already low levels of dissolved oxygen in the water, pushing many fish beyond their tolerance levels.
"The scale of this disaster is extraordinary and unprecedented", Mr Daley said. "We've spent decades and $13 billion only to end up with ecological tragedy in our rivers".
NSW Labor confirmed that it would seek to overturn the plan - supported by all basin state governments and the Morrison government - to effectively decommission the Menindee Lakes System.
"They don't understand what it would mean [to cancel it]", Blair says, of the NSW Labor stance.
But it is former Green now independent MP Jeremy Buckingham's hilarious reaction during a Facebook video that is drawing all the attention, for the wrong reasons.
"This mass fish kill be a wake-up call for Australia that we need to get out of a broken loop on water policy and that fundamentally adequate water must be prioritised for the environment before being allocated to large-scale irrigation", Mr Buckingham said as he left for Broken Hill after visiting the dead fish zones on Wednesday.
"Further upstream at Dirranbandi (home of Cubbie Cotton), just 300 hectares of cotton has been planted, which is 1 per cent of what can be planted in a very good season".
The Board at Murray Cod Australia (ASX:MCA) says their fish stocks have not been affected by the recent fish deaths on the Darling River. But, as an industry, we are growing very exhausted of being "the whipping boy" for all the problems that are being brought on by this crippling drought.
"Droughts would have contributed to the blue green algae outbreak", he said.

Not in an arrogant way, by any means. "I don't know if I'll ever get to a point where I'll be satisfied and go, 'I did it. Give yourself a break'". "I don't know if she'll follow in my footsteps, but she definitely has the genes", Lopez said.
