The birthplace of Aristotle is being laid waste by a vast mining project, opening a rift in a cash-strapped society

The arguments for and against are classic. The tragedy is, the mining company has already begun production; paradise lost.

My Greek friend told me that the problems are in the major cities and not the surrounding countryside. Of course without going in depth into the corruption or the entitlement of the unions or other avaricious governmental aspects involved, they have certainly contributed to the demise of Greece and the EU. This is all part of an elaborate game engineered by playing on nationalistic pride and the entitlement of human nature. The winner in all of this is Germany.
Now the Eurozone is faced with austerity economics much as many other nations were faced with during globalization and outsourcing. More and more cuts and concessions will be demanded of governments like Greece, Spain and Portugal and many others within the Zone. More and more control will be ceded to the Banksters and the development companies.
These firms such as Eldorado can now launch operations since the governments are so strapped for cash. The people may believe that as long as it is done within the environmental guidelines it should be okay. If history is any indication we know that these firms cut corners and do not honor their commitments or delay cleaning up their messes which exacerbates and increases the contamination over the time they use to delay having to pay for clean-up.
Then there is waste disposal. The Cammorah, an organized crime group is hugely involved in environmental and other waste disposal throughout Europe. Let me tell you folks; they don't dispose of it environmentally at all. Got a nice abandoned dump site or building site that is abandoned. It ends up as barrels in landfill or is pumped into the landfill as liquid and then buried.
The only thing that matters to them is money and they will and have cut corners in every venture they have been involved in and are involved in or will be involved in, in the future.
Europe like America is being bought and sold to the highest bidder. Austerity economics is becoming the norm and not the exception.
