Life on the sea shore

Interesting we always hear talk about global warming and how time is running out for us all. The end of the earth is near etc. Then we hear the Antarctica ice plateau is increasing, getting better etc. All very confusing. This is all a bit philosophical for me but I post this for a simple reason.
Earlier today I was walking round our construction site and checking on the storage of some shore defense concrete units (Accropodes) we have. These are large concrete units designed to reduce the wave energy from the sea damaging our shore line. Quite common things and these ones will be reinstated once we complete our works. But back to the point I was trying to make. We are all worried about global warming and here the marine life does not have much choice. Needs to survive and get on with life. So looking below at the photos you can see we have new Accropodes units alongside some used units.
The Accropodes taken out of the sea have oysters and other mollusk growing all over them. These creatures have adapted to the concrete being in the sea and attached themselves, grown and survived. Just got on with life. We’ve disturbed them but the next lot will grow back again next year.
Makes me think it’s the logical way forward. Forget what we would like things to be and make the best of what we have. Adapt and move on.

All this a bit heavy for me... I'll get back to restaurants and travel items next !!!!
