By the time Water Medicine opened, Kalgoorlie had recorded it's wettest and coolest year on record. Why is this so? Some speculate that the clearing of the wheatfields west of Kalgoorlie has meant that storm clouds keep their load longer. Since electricity has replaced wood as the source of power, much of the goldfields timber has re-grown. There is now even talk of trading in 'carbon credits', to sell 'green' as well as gold.
