They’ve also been used to build artificial reefs, on the understanding that piles of tyres underwater would provide places for coral to grow and reef fish to hide and breed.

Some are more egregious than others. Like the “Australian Plan”, which is basically

  1. Do not raise taxes, do not impose any new costs, do not increase funding for conservation or universities. Certainly don’t stop coal mining. Basically, do nothing.
  2. Assume that someone will invent something which will make the problem go away.
  3. Everything is solved, QED.

Scott Morrison’s “Plan” literally relies on “then a miracle occurs”.
