The inclement weather of the past week has once again underscored the extreme vulnerability of the country to climate change and it is now critical that the relevant authorities return to the drawing board, as it is obvious that this business as usual mentality is not only intolerable, it is also unsustainable.This country has wasted and continues to waste billions of dollars on infrastructure repairs over the years, that is a direct result of shoddy work in the beginning and shoddy repair work, as it seems that our governments take great pride in finding money to pour down the drain instead of just ensuring that the job is done properly in the first place. Within a month, the authorities will again be providing money to truck water to needy residents, as we cannot find a way to harness and properly store the millions of gallons that have ended up in the ocean over the past week, lost forever, while the people continue to suffer water woes on an annual basis.
