The hard truth: the government is more interested in oil, LNG and other lucrative 'kick back' ready projects and cares little for the environment - either our seas or our pristine areas on land. Again, it is up to Bahamians to stop the abuses of government, but one must seriously question the will of the Bahamian people on environmental issues. As the saying goes, the people get the government they deserve. WAKE UP BAHAMAS!

It is simpler than that. There are just too few who care about anything in this country.

The rest are content to do as they please regardless of the consequences. As I said, the implications for the future of the country from the way that this single project has been handled are truly staggering.

And that is probably an underestimation.


I was in Nassau two weeks ago and I noticed that in the Cable Beach there were a large amount of solar powered street lights that were in need of repair. The solar street lights were hanging about and a majority looked like they were not functioning properly.

As a tourist to the islands I enjoy seeing a pristine and clean environment. Seeing solar panels leads me to believe that the government is attempting to maintain that greeness and hence wanting me to come back again in the future to enjoy the same.

Seeing the solar street lights was great, but to see them in disrepair was amazing.

We Gringo's love to come to the islands for the pristine environment. Probably the biggest reason someone stateside pays money to visit the Bahamas or the entire Caribbean region for that matter is to be able to say "Wow that place is so beautiful and clean" when they return home. An escape from the pollution at home.

I would hope that the government, utilities and banks fully understand the worth of using solar power for their economy, and that someone takes the time and effort to go fix these solar street lights.

Unfortunately, those solar street lights were installed years ago an never maintained - another failed and wasted government programme.

I came across around 6-8 large broken marine batteries on the shore of Lubbers. They are on a ramp and leak directly into the sea. These are on the property of a wealthy landowner who should know better. Is there an agency I can send details to?
