Have you been to La Gonave?

They are proposing to put a refinery on the only farmable land on the island.

The mountain highlands are too arid even for Jatropha.

The Oil refinery is being proposed less than 40 miles from the epicenter of the recent quake and right on the fault line. The proposed lakes would / could only be cisterns and be brackish as there are no rivers flowing there in the proposed location to provide water.

I know La Gonave

I love La Gonave

All these guys are proposing is an easy oil storage facility to fuel the ships going up and down to the Panama Canal.

The proposed "towns and villages" are vertical cliffs plunging into the ocean with only yards of beaches at most. Look at it on Google Earth!
