Noise Pollution is Regulated

 |  Peter H. Wood  | 
So when my weekend is continually punctuated by the roar of a cavorting airplane, I expected action. But no, the pilot has free rein over the heavily populated Buffalo Beach Whitianga.

If the machine had been, some-how, productively occupied this letter would not have been written. But the Prof-ligate use of environment damaging fossil fuels for an individual’s personal enjoyment ignored the onset of climate change. (as does the increasing numbers of humanity with their travel.)

Don’t Flaunt your toys in my breathing and sound space please. Perhaps put an exhaust silencer on your engine. Cars must have it.

Nationhood – The Magic of Democracy

Democracy often clambered for but never fully realised and never always applied into a society that claimed to be democratic when choice was denied.  Slaves have no word.

TIC – Tongue In Cheek ailment

Dear Trevor I sincerely hope you are convalescing sufficiently from your recent and most difficult operation, when you had your tongue removed from your cheek. You obviously severely suffered mentally as you went thru the portal, as your column is actually making sense, which is most unlike your…

Don’t gloss over ICE vehicles

While it’s great Peter Blank enjoys his classic car, his recent letter about electric vehicles (EVs) contains many inaccuracies.
