Leave a comment

Environment News Service reports that Kenya is about to allow the destruction of a huge bio-reservoir to produce biofuel. We know that Kenya is one of the most needy countries in the world, but how much of the gelt from that destruction do you think the poor folks of Kenya will enjoy? Ummmm?

NAIROBI, Kenya, June 26, 2008 (ENS) – Kenya’s Tana River Delta, inhabited by 350 species of birds, lions, elephants, rare sharks and reptiles, is about to be converted to sugar cane production over the objections of conservationists and local communities. The Kenyan government has approved a proposal by a publicly traded company based in Nairobi to covert 2,000 square kilometers of the pristine delta into irrigated sugarcane plantations.
