Just a quick post this morning before work…
Barbados Prime Minister Owen Arthur admitted yesterday in the House of Assembly that the design of the Greenland waste dump had technical flaws. From The Nation Newspaper…
“When this current phase of operations at Mangrove comes to an end, that is the end of the operation of landfills at Mangrove. We will go to Greenland, having corrected any technical flaws in the design of Greenland as any responsible Government should do.”
So the “technical flaws in the design” have been corrected, Mr. Prime Minister?
But seeing as this is the first time that the Government has admitted technical flaws in the design (that I know of), how about telling us what those flaws were and how they have been corrected?
We’re all big boys and girls here, and we know that we have to do something with the garbage, so how about releasing your “design flaw corrections” report? That would go a long way to show that the Government wasn’t hiding anything or just transferring the problem from one spot on the island to another.
And also remind us, Prime Minister… why haven’t we considered the new incineration technologies like the ones that are keeping Singapore so clean?
