Having A Cow - Right On Cue - About Cutting Down A Tree

Environmental IssuesA group of environmentalists and people who defend nature denounced the indiscriminate felling of trees as part of a commercial development project being built next to the Centennial highway, that affects the Camino de Cruces National Park. Raisa Banfiel, a civil society leader and environmentalist, said the National Environmental Authority (ANAM) ordered the suspension of work, however, they company as surprisingly resumed work on the project. She said the company responsible for the project does not have an updated environmental impact study, and they do not have the permits in the field to fell trees. The environmentalist requested the presence of the Anam and authorities to investigate this case, and to cite the company in charge of the work. The plaintiffs are preparing to hold a protest near where the work is taking place. (Critica)

Editor's Comment: Did you know that for every tree a developer cuts down in Panama, they have to plant 10 more somewhere else? If these "environmentalists" were authentic and true, and if they genuinely cared about the environment, then they would be applauding this type of development. The developers then go out and buy many hectares of deforested cattle land, and plant new trees, ten to one. And this is not plantation teak for lumber or anything like that - they have to plant a proper mix of naturally occurring species of trees and plants, and really reclaim areas that had been cleared for cattle, and turn it back into forest. But whatever, the only thing they know how to do is make noise and protest. Don't confuse them with the facts, they're too busy being an activist to really care about the environment. Now, let's all hop into our SUV's to drive up there to protest! Yippie! Maybe I can get on TV again! Yeesh...
