Abstract: On a sweltering October Sunday afternoon, many Maltese flock to the beach for an off-season swim... a figment of the imagination? With 30°C temperatures last Sunday, a full month into autumn, all talk of a water-guzzling golf course should simply evaporate, but not in Malta, where tourism considerations reign supreme, even if rain is scarce and groundwater levels are at a low. However, the voluminous environment impact assessment so proudly quoted by Angelo Xuereb in Protagonisti on Net TV certainly does not take global warming into the equation... Although we had a couple of good downpours last Wednesday, these are only slight solace for the ever increasing periods of drought. Hugh Arnett, writing in The Sunday Times Motoring magazine last week, claims that Mr Xuereb, unlike other property tycoons in this country, have been treated in a roughshod manner by NGOs, etc. I refer Mr Arnett to the blizzard of articles I wrote against other developers, including the big cheese he cared to mention.
