The mass fish kill came to national attention on Tuesday when an emotional video by local farmers Dick Arnold and Rob McBride went viral, racking up millions of views.

Showing the stench has apparently clouded his judgement, Mr Buckingham comes back in shot at the end of the video asking if he can swim in the river where they found the dead fish.

Mr Buckingham said in a Facebook post it was one of the most disgusting experiences of his life.

Ex-Greens MP Jeremy Buckingham has made himself an instant meme after almost spewing while holding a dead fish in a video that was meant to highlight the National Party's water policies.

"I felt so sick that I panicked and jumped in the river to escape it - as bad as it is!"

Gaia Reveals How Sun-like Stars Turn Solid After Their Demise
For the first time astronomers have directly observed evidence of white dwarf stars solidifying into giant crystals. The only explanation for this is that these stars have an extra energy source, said Tremblay.

The discovery of up to a million dead fish has been blamed on mismanagement and corruption, but the NSW Government insists the drought is partly to blame.

Mr Blair dismissed Mr Daley's demand saying that he had used his first comments about the drought to "rewrite history by ignoring the fact that similar environmental catastrophes happened under their watch when last in government".

Australian National University honorary professor John Williams says the current Murray-Darling Basin Plan has "failed" and needs to be overhauled.

The Menindee Lakes, which are about four times the size of Sydney Harbour, were drained twice in four years and are sitting at between 2.6 per cent and 4 per cent capacity, he said.

Among the fish varieties most impacted by the event are vitally important native species like bony bream, Murray cod and perch.

The Chinese space administration also released a 12-minute video of the spacecraft's landing, which can be seen below. The probe is shown adjusting its altitude, speed and pitch as it seeks to avoid obstacles on the ground.

These events are isolated to the Darling River - all of MCA's production is based on the Murrumbidgee and Murray River Systems and we have sufficient allocation of high quality water.

Arnold says members of the government "have to be bloody disgusted with yourself, politicians and cotton grower manipulators".

"These huge Murray cods are about 80 years old, they've survived the drought and extreme weather - but the one thing they can't survive is this draining", she told AAP on Wednesday.

The DPI said ongoing dry conditions and a recent big temperature drop could have caused the deaths.

The fish deaths disaster in NSW could become an issue in South Australia's royal commission into the Murray Darling Basin.

Several deaths, many hurt in Ottawa bus crash
Twenty-three people were hurt and taken to hospitals and three people died - two on the bus and one on the platform, Watson said. Fourteen of the injured are in critical condition, according to Miles Cassidy, the chief of Ottawa's paramedic services.

The cotton industry says it is not to blame for the mass deaths of hundreds of thousands of fish in the Darling River and is exhausted of being a "whipping boy" for problems associated with the drought. In mid-December, more than 10,000 fish died in a stretch of the river a little farther upstream, the Guardian reported.
