In relation to potholes in our roads, I suggest we get hovercraft cars instead of electric cars. No busted tyres or front end damage in those!
Drivers being booked for speeding in the area are unable to watch their speedo, as they are too busy dodging patches and potholes.
The people responsible for fixing our road system, need patching to fix the holes in the top of their heads.
At a recent council meeting, one team wanted to build a koala sanctuary. I hope they put it at the top of The Rock, to prevent development.
The other team wants to cover all playgrounds and fun parks with shade cloth.
San Isidore has a fun park, a fire station, a fire training area, a fire shed, a football ground and cricket ground, a dog training area and a tennis court, in one area.
There is no footpath access area for women with prams and children to access the playground etc. Women and children have to walk along Benedict Avenue which is in disastrous condition.
Since the rain, there are big holes in the road again. Council can build hundreds of kilometres of bike paths but they can't build footpaths from the church to the playground.
I can allay Gerry Shilling's fears with regard to water supply for hydrogen supply ("Water worries dull outlook", The Daily Advertiser, November 15).
The water will come from the ocean. The hydrogen will be extracted once the water has been cleansed by screening out the sharks, sewerage and heavy metals.
The lowering of the sea level will make man-made climate change fanatics happy.
The hydrogen will be used to create electricity. The freed oxygen will be put to industrial and commercial use, as well as in hospitals etc. Fresh clean water would also be available from Warragamba Dam at opportune times, but don't tell Tim Flannery.
If indeed we were to have a glut of hydrogen, it can be mixed two parts of hydrogen with one part of oxygen, to be later recycled.
The oxygen required could be extracted from the CO2 in the upper atmosphere. The carbon, being heavier than air, would return to Earth where it belongs.
The Earth will become cooler and the climate change fanatics' joy will know no bounds!

The Labor opposition has recently pledged to reduce Australia's greenhouse gas emissions by 43 per cent this decade based on 2005 levels.
While Labor's 2030 target is higher than the Coalition's, it still falls well below what the science dictates as necessary.
In March 2021, the Climate Targets Panel reported that Australia needed to reduce its emissions by 50 per cent on 2005 levels by 2030, reaching net zero emissions by 2045, if we were to stay within our remaining 2-degree carbon budget.
For us to stay within the remaining 1.5-degree carbon budget, the targets would be 74 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030 and net zero emissions by 2035.
We Australians need to be smart about who we vote for at the next federal election; this means voting for politicians who have climate policies that are based on science, which in turn will secure a stable climate and prosperous future for Australia.
