Gums have reason to be blue

Yesterday's article prompted this creative solution to the drought in today's SMH Letters To The Editor.

Down with those gums

Given the reported link between vegetation clearing, urban sprawl and thunderstorms ("City climate surprise - trees cut, storms grow", October 24), can I suggest we tear down those pesky gum trees and whack a few new suburbs in the Blue Mountains National Park, thereby guaranteeing that when it rains it finally does so over the catchment area?
