Dredging for beaches

Warwick Anderson, Suffolk Park

Rising sea levels are eroding our beaches. I have a suggestion. Ask Jerry Harvey to pack up all his ice making machines and send them to the Arctic. Set them up on solar power and on a tilt with a robotic conveyor belt to redistribute the ice all over the Arctic! Global warming problem solved thanks to Jerry!

Seriously though, we should be hiring an oceangoing dredge and trialling some different locations to dredge the sand from, and different spots to deposit it, until we find the best option. Then as a community we could set up a permanent operation. Perhaps this could be jointly funded from a range of grants from the three levels of Government and the private sector?
