I agree with the content of Michael Springer's letter. While I think that the project has great potential and merit, I too, would like to know more detail. The questions, I would pose are:
What kind of waste material will the proposed plant generate?
How will that waste be dealt with and where?
Will this plant have it's own power generating system and what will it depend on to run it?
Will it be environmentally friendly and ecologically sound?
What impact will it have on the surrounding areas?
What happens when the 30 years are up?
With the rising fuel cost affecting every aspect of our lives and no end in sight for diminished fuel costs, the declining state of our Water and Power Authority, the ecological impact of large scale developments, our absolute lack of recycling capability on all our islands, it may be wise for our leaders to insist that all new developments start using "green guidelines" for building materials, green space on their sites, be self sufficient for their own power usage and incorporate their own recycling programs for waste that shall be generated from start to finish. This should apply to all new developments whether they be commercial or residential projects. This should be implemented now, not 30 years down the road.
