Sapoty Brook, Main Arm
The editorial of 6 November thoughtfully prioritised environmental concerns over housing. But it did leave me wondering whether the environmental concerns include the sharks swimming along Jonson Street in 2090, and the housing concerns of the 50 million refugees from Bangladesh?
But then, after further thought, I realised that those concerns were negated by the 4 degree global average temperature rise trimming the global population to one twentieth. Thus the housing concerns were catered for, and the sharks replaced by jelly fish in the acidified heated ocean.
However, I now realise that the housing issue will remain relevant because the category 5 cyclones will rearrange the deck chairs somewhat horizontally with only brick dunnies remaining as standard bedrooms.
Thankfully, organic community gardens will be thriving due to protection by bikie gang snipers, except during the fifty summer days when temperature exceeds 48ºC and the shrivelled vegies collapse; and the occasional wet season when gardening snorkels get blocked by floating mulch.
All good. Humans are very adaptable; at least those surviving are. Continue business as usual.
