Mark Parnell on Marine Policy 101


Mark Parnell MLC

For those who don't use Twitter and who aren't following South Australian Legislative Council Greens member Mark Parnell, he had this to say earlier this afternoon:

Marine Policy 101: Kill seagrass with pollution = mobilised sand = eroded beaches = $$$ to pump more sand on shore to keep our beaches nice!

It's funny (in a kind of tragic way) because it's true. Welcome to the world of reactionary rather than preventative environmental politics, or as I see it, fixing the symptoms not the causes. It works so well for health, education and transport, might as well put it into practise for the environment too.
