OCEANWAY lighting should be consistent along the entire length and while new lighting is now on order, the users of the path don’t change from one section to the next so neither should the standard of lighting given that its primary purpose is to illuminate the pathway to ensure safety and security.
Performance guidelines set designs and specifications to ensure safety, consistency, and reliability.
Standards exist for a reason and if not incorporated into the design of the Tugun to Bilinga lighting then complaints about safety and security will inevitably arise.
Organisations representing users of the Oceanway needed to raise the problem now rather than wait until Council may have wasted thousands of dollars on ineffective lighting requiring replacement.
While considering the opinions of residents near the public path, the Council needs to ensure that the lights are tested and assessed as compliant with the relevant standards prior to installation. J CARRUTHERS
JIM Taylor (Letters, GCB, 14/9) has my sincerest sympathies. It sounds like he’s about to wake to the climate con. The transition is painful, Jim, I know, I too was once a brainwashed greenie.
Humans evolved with a fear of bad weather.
Claiming to know how to control it is an ancient scam.
This latest version has been exceptionally effective for the carpetbaggers.
The “97% consensus” Jim mentioned is the most successful marketing ploy ever used by hoaxers.
It’s still only the old “appeal to authority” logical fallacy, just dressed up in a lab-coat.
97% of experts once believed the world was flat. Poor old Galileo was tried for heresy for suggesting otherwise. The flat-earthers, like the CO2-alarmists, were wrong.
Anyone who understands the proper Popperian scientific method realises “settled science” is an oxymoron, too. Sound hypotheses become theories, but CO2-alarmism is a just failed hypothesis.
There is no “dangerous manmade global warming from burning fossil fuels”. That’s the inescapable conclusion from using first principles to critically examine atmospheric and radiative physics.
While carbon-dioxide is harmless, there’s enormous danger in the climate hoax.
Therefore it is the duty of every responsible citizen to resist the climate hoax. PETER CAMPION
PETER Campion (letters Sept. 13), well said. It’s not climate change it’s financial control.
All we have to do is put some of the coastal fresh water back inland and use our ample cheap coal and gas to provide power.
We could feed the world and have cheap fuel as well.
We have to stop overseas control and start running Australia by Aussies for Aussies. RON RADLEY
SUBMISSIONS for the Regis Development Application north of the Pacific Surf Club and stretching from the Highway to the beach front will close on September 21.
To be clear, we do not oppose the proposed use of the land as a care facility.
How could we? We all expect to grow old.
What we do oppose is the height, density, dominance and excessive bulk of the proposed structure outside the limits of the zoning code and the ability of this application to set a precedent for future developments.
Is this type of massive structure suitable for the beachfront at Palm Beach?
Join the many locals who have expressed concern. Tell the council what you want for Palm Beach.
For more information go to “goldcoast.qld.gov.au” and check the development application number 201800196. SANDRA ST LEDGER PALM BEACH
THANK you for the lovely piece writing “Political couple discover power and the passion” by Paul Weston 8/9/2018.
However, it’s disappointing the journalist did not address the concerns which are being raised across most social media community pages within the Gaven area which is “where is Meaghan Scanlon since being elected?”. GLENN RINGE PACIFIC PINES
THERE are no doubt several nine-year-olds who are very opinionated.
Young Harper who made headlines for her refusal to stand for the National Anthem at her school’s morning parade appears to be well coached rather than having opinions of her own.
This came through clearly during her radio interview yesterday.
The publicity around this rather trivial issue has been unbelievably excessive. KEN JOHNSTON ROCHEDALE SOUTH
