Ancon Tree Huggers On Alert Over Parking Garage

Environmental Issues The Federation the Reverted Areas, comprising residents of Ancon, remains vigilant to the possible construction of a parking garage next to the Supreme Court of Justice. According to a statement released by the inhabitants, it was learned that yesterday, Thursday, 4 October 2012, electricians went to the Supreme Court, who, by order of Judge Harry Diaz, were looking for the power lines, because it is another company that will do the work of installing the lights necessary for the construction of the parking garage building. In July 2012 residents of the area blocked the start of construction, saying they would not allow the felling of 40 trees in the area. The presence of electricians on the land where they intend to build a five story parking garage prompted the residents to consider new demonstrations against the plan. This group presented several alternatives to keep the trees from being felled. There was no answer. (Siglo)

Editor's Comment: Screw those particular 40 trees. The environmentalists should be happy with this plan, because the company that builds the parking garage will probably be required to plant like 1,000 trees somewhere else, to make up for the 40 they are going to have to knock down to build the building. Have you ever been to the Supreme Court building? I have, dozens of times. There's no place to park. Once again last week when I was there to testify in the trial of Daniel Moreno, I had to park in a "Jeep" spot that no normal sedan could use. So, while I'm as green as the next guy, these rabid environmentalists need to unwrap themselves from these particular 40 plants - and go stroke the 1,000 new ones - that will be growing somewhere else. It becomes emotional for these idiots and the logic melts away. And of course they drive to their protests in SUV's and commit all sorts of other acts which expose them as hypocrites. Whatever. It's possible to do both things - protect the planet, be kind to the environment, while simultaneously giving humans a place to live and work. And park.

Okay, great................more parking places..............important for a city that is already overcrowded with autos.................now what about the shade factor? Can u/they maybe leave one or two trees just for shade? Or is shade no longer important in this mechanized urbanized environment?
