The willful ignorance on the part of the builder and the Nicaraguan government of the damage this thing will cause is stupifying.

More promises of pie in the sky from the government the ordinary person will reap no benefit from this and will be saddled by enormous debt.

A healthy environment is what allows any form of economic activity in the first place. Sacrificing the environment for the economy is short term thinking madness.

Surely this canal isn't required. The benefits following completion of the expansion to the Panama Canal must be assessed first before another country is sacrificed.
