Editorial: In 2010, let's set a goal to become green

Cayman Net News

As we start the New Year, one resolution that should be made by all stakeholders, both public and private, is to make a determined and effective effort to tackle a number of environmental issues, in particular, the longstanding problem of Mount Trashmore … the unsightly, smelly and environmentally unsafe (well over three decades in the making) garbage dump.

Previous governments have promised much but delivered little, especially when it came to the environment in general and the garbage dump in particular – which have been the target on many money-grabbing schemes by wily local businessmen.

In fact, generally speaking, over the years politicians in the Cayman Islands have paid scant regard to and have not put sufficient emphasis on preserving either our national heritage or full story.
