Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Here is a virtuous story about a coastal um city-state. There is no information about civil "engineering" in place to protect the inhabitants of the archipelago in the event of natural disaster. There is lots of information about artificial disasters such as immigration ("brain drain") and commodity trade balancing of its limited resources. Maybe the Faroes have something pertinent to share, but they're not doing it in this pageant show, surrounded by wild sea and wind. I think, ironically.

Read a little this week about the Faroe Islands tunnels and how cheaply they are built, compared to other places in the world.  Some people are wondering when the Faroe Islanders are going to hook with Elon Musk's Boring Company.

My suspicion is that Elon and CA could learn from the Faroe Islanders but probably won't see it that way.
