Making the problem worse?



 


A new natural gas facility is going to be built in Clarendon, which will increase the amount of air pollution already plaguing Jamaica.  The plant will provide cheaper fuel for bauxite company Jamalco.  The citizens that live around where the plant will be built are more excited that it will provide new jobs while its under construction, as well as twenty permanent positions, than they are concerned how the plant will impact their quality of life.  Numerous politicians have admitted that they need to do something regarding the air pollution, yet they approved this construction.  I’m sure a lot of us can relate to the frustration that comes from politicians not keeping their word, especially when it comes to the environment.
