Fracking fires

Erich Onest, Balmain

How good for our politicians to see all their wishes come true at once. With the bushfires (a God-sent natural event) destroying so many of our National Parks and wilderness areas, it is a perfect time to reclassify these areas for mining, large scale agriculture (of course run by multinational corporations) and for high-rise apartment towers.

I am sure there is enough space for a few thousand of those towers so, if a few fall over in Opal Tower fashion, there will be plenty of spares. The empty units could be set aside for emergency accommodation for the next fire, flood, or virus event.

And, surprise! Guess what? The Federal government is already leaning on NSW to allow more fracking.

What a fracking surprise.
