How we change lakes


Variances to dock construction are being considered. Everyone wants to buy some land, then make money off it by ‘developing’ it.

Land and lakes can’t be developed. They’re already developed by nature. We can only change them, almost never for the better.

“Sustainable development” is the prize oxymoron of my lifetime, exceeding the “Trees — our renewable resource” joke of a few decades ago by the forestry people.
