    Prove little more than red dust....

    Deal all,

    Could any one explain to me what does it mean by "Some of these plans will prove little more than red dust blowing in the wind." does i mean thay some of these actually matter much much more? Thank you.

    Sincerely,

    Sincerely,
    I think it probably means that those things will be temporary, fleeting and perhaps unimportant. If something is dust blowing in the wind, then it is not permanent, it will soon blow away and will not last.

    Thank you.

    Could you explain when to use " what is meant by" and when to us " what does it mean"?

    "Could anyone explain to me what does it mean is meant by "Some of these plans will prove little more than red dust blowing in the wind"?"

    Thank you.
