    From what I was just reading Barbados Today that two moonbat senators, Maxine McClean and Verla Depeiza took issue with Wilfred Abraham reading from the PM’s letter to the crazy Clair Cowan…………I take it that they mean you!

    They both said that they are fed up with leaking documents which “fall off the back of the truck” and that it is an act of treason.

    Can you imagine that these two moonbats were in the crowd at Haggatt Hall…….one was sitting on the platform behind David Thompson when he put on enormous TV screens government documents and a cheque payable to OSA. They never had a problem with it then but you know what the older folk used to say………..do so dont like do so!

    What hypocites!

    Their problem is they felt they could do what they want and make all kinds of secret deals and we the taxpayers would never know what secret deals they were entering into to reap benefits for themselves.

    Hey Verla and Maxine………..newsflash…..these are different times, you can hide and buy land but you cannot hide and work it.

    And to insult our intelligence, the man we call Physical Deficit said the land is not for Cahill.

    And can you believe that with all the information on BU, John Watson said he did not know anything about Cahil? And these are businessmen??

    This EIA from Burnside is very interesting, and I have seen some points which hit me like a ton of bricks, so I will take my time and go through it again, because I now see why this Government is so eager to get a number of things done so fast.

    We had an exchange with the Senator and he advised the press report misquoted him. We asked him to published his version. We wait.

    Apparently, according to the assessment, Alvin’s tires would have had to be imported, along with other wastes. These people are not well in their heads…lol

    From what I have read about this plant that’s being introduced to Barbados, ISN’T something that Barbados NEEDS. It seems to have more unforeseen problems than benefits for the good of all in Barbados. I’m quite sure that their is a better solution to the waste problem. I’m seeing this to become more harmful, than to be of any real help to the people in Barbados.

    But I am not a scientist or engineer either. Just using simple common sense in this situation. And seeing that at the end of this all, Barbadians are going to be facing much more problems than financial if this plant is being built. HEALTH ISSUES ARE GOING TO INCREASE FOR SURE. SAY NO TO THIS PLANT;

    The Burnside EIA review doc is a good start to figuring out what we want as an energy park
    There are lots of questions and information to be filled in and finalised .
    For clarity this is NOT the definitive EIA Cahill WTE plant need to do to get the project through town planning but if Cahill were serious about this project they would have built on this “flaura / fauna ” first pass review and used it as a start point to getting the answers needed to prove the site is suitable to take the project.
    Key questions:
    Soil bearing capacity
    Elevation (visual impact and flairing)
    Wind direction

    The “real” EIA will take a lot more work and the appointment of a engineering house to the project.

    @Well Well,
    What is really the matter with you? Do you think we would be “importing” the tyres from other countries to be burnt in the WTE plant for free? Don’t {can’t) you see this as another source of foreign exchange? Don’t we presently import molasses to make into our rum for export? You people are so intent on destroying that you can’t see beyond your turned up noses.


    Sinkholes? in Barbados? Barbados’ soil, not very deep, sits on top of a cap of coral limestone that is many many feet deep. Sink holes are found in sandy soil sitting on top of sandstone ,with water eroding the subsoil that sinks into the depressions formed. We have caves, but these are not subject to the type of erosion tha give rise to sink holes. Check out the areas of Florida that are susceptible to sink holes. Where the land is that has been designated for the WTE plant,(Vaucluse) the engineers have dug (QUARRIED USING DYNAMITE) through hundreds of feet of coral; NO DANGER OF SINKHOLES THERE. STOP TRYING TO USE THESE TYPES OF SCARE TACTICS TO MAKE YOUR POINT. If you doubt me drive up to Vaucluse and see it for yourself. All your concerns; Water,Potable (recycled sewage water) can be used,Drainage and runoff, A visit will answer this, it will be seen that your concerns are no concerns at all. Be careful because if you fall into the excavations, they are so far down that nobody will hear your cries. Note when the Burnside report was written. I hope you have been able to read the entire report, because if you make your judgement, based only on BU,you will be misled, because what is presented on BU is deficient…many pages missing. I asked for the missing pages to be put in but David refuses for some reason.Visual impact; where it is scheduled to be placed, it will be hidden by Mt. Stinkeroo and the ridge that runs North to South. I will be completely hidden either from the road to the east or the west. Wind direction is variable. I know that you know better than you are mekong out.

    @ Alvin Cummins

    Still holding to your position that cars, trucks and metal will be sent to the proposed Cahill WTE?

    […] TCDPO Ref: 1123/07/2013C, “waste generation is closely linked to population, though for Barbados, tourism contributes a disproportionate quantity of waste. A rule-of-thumb is that each tourist generates roughly three times the waste of a local person in the same period of time.” […]
