Matthew Hartley’s concern about the Belongil Estuary (Letters, 20 January) is nothing more than a symbolic gesture to a doomed ecosystem.

Ecosystems are only relevant in the context of ten-thousand years or more. The Belongil Estuary has less than 100 years left before it is swallowed by the rising Pacific Ocean. The only realistic concern is the use of concrete, which will out-gas even more carbon dioxide before going under water.

Let’s not pretend that we are environmental warriors saving our precious coastal ecosystems, that would be a left wing reconstruction of reality equivalent to Trumpian propaganda.
