Rich countries to develop policies inflicted on the Caribbean is destroying the climate of the earth
Rich countries develop oppressive policies toward the Caribbean and threatening the entire planet's climate
.by Gualterio Nunez Estrada, Sarasota, Florida, 34232.
The rich countries become legal disputes with the poor countries of the Caribbean in geopolitical block to trade, investment, tourism and scientific exchange.
We can destroy the climate of the hearth with our behavior, no only by a cosmic disaster as happen in the Hollywood film "2012".
So what's the basis of this behavior that crushes the whole society of a developing country?
They really are not the property values for themselves what makes these rich countries overstate any dispute with Latin America but to keep interest and the region below its true value, curb national legislators and local legal system so that investments are low cost, no taxes, no regulations to protect the environment.
An extreme case is Honduras where transnational investments not pay taxes, another notorious case the current tourist campaign to boycot the industry and the economy of Antighua and Barbuda based on fraud by billionaire Allen Stanford.
Rights in a case alleging political, legal or human rigths with the same intention with which the senator in ancient Rome Catiline he repeated again and again "Delenda est Carthago", only to demonstrate with the destruction of Carthage that Rome was the strongest of all the powers ..
Os países ricos desenvolvem políticas opressivas em direção ao Caribe e ameaça o clima do planeta inteiro.
Os países ricos tornam-se disputas legais com os países pobres do Caribe, em bloco geopolítico de comércio, investimento, turismo e intercâmbio científico.
Então, qual é a base deste comportamento que esmaga toda a sociedade de um país em desenvolvimento?
Eles realmente não são os valores de propriedade para si o que torna esses países ricos exagerar qualquer disputa com a América Latina, mas para manter o interesse ea região abaixo do seu valor real, reduzir os legisladores nacionais e do sistema jurídico local de modo que os investimentos são de baixo custo, sem impostos, não há regulamentos para proteger o meio ambiente.
Um caso extremo é Honduras, onde os investimentos transnacionais e não pagar impostos, outro notório caso l turista actual campanha para bloquear um Antighua fraude e Barbuda pelo bilionário Allen Stanford.
Direitos, num caso relativo à política, jurídica ou humanos com a mesma intenção com que o senador na Roma Antiga Catilina repetiu uma e outra vez "Delenda est Cartago", apenas para demonstrar a destruição de Cartago que Roma era o mais forte de todos os poderes ..
The Gulf Stream in the Triangle Mexico-Florida-Cuba decided all the climate of the planet.
Los paises ricos desarrollan politicas opresivas hacia paises del caribe y ponen en peligro el clima de todo el planeta.
Los paises ricos convierten disputas legales con los paises pobres del Caribe en geopoliticas de bloqueo al comercio, a la inversion, al turismo y al intercambio cientifico.
?Cual es la base de esta conducta que aplasta toda la sociedad de un pais en desarrollo?
Realmente, no son el valor de las propiedades por si mismas lo que hace que estos paises ricos sobredimensionen cualquier diferendo con America Latina sino el interes de mantener a la region por debajo de su valor real, doblegar a los legisladores nacionales y el sistema legal local de forma tal que las inversiones resultan de bajo costo, sin impuestos, sin regulaciones para proteger el medio ambiente.
Un caso extremo es Honduras donde inversionistas y transnacionales no pagan impuestos, otro caso notorio es la actual campana de hacer bloqueo turistico a Antigua y Barbudas por el fraude billonario de Allen Stanford.
En un caso alegan derechos politicos, juridicos o humanos con la misma intencion con la cual el senador Catilina en la Roma Antigua repetia una y otra vez "Delenda est Cartago", solo para demostrar con la destruccion de los cartagineses que Roma era la mas fuerte de todas las potencias..

Богатым странам разработать репрессивной политики по отношению к Карибского бассейна и угрожающих климат всей планеты.
Богатые страны становятся все правовые споры с бедными странами Карибского бассейна в геополитическом блоке для торговли, инвестиций, туризма и научных обменов.
Так что основой такого поведения, который душит все общество развивающихся стран?
Они действительно не являются собственностью значения для себя, что делает эти богатые страны завышают любой спор со странами Латинской Америки, но и сохранить интерес и область ниже ее истинной стоимости, обуздать национальные законодатели и местной правовой системы так что инвестиции являются низкая стоимость, нет налогов, нет правил по защите окружающей среды.
Крайним случаем является Гондурас, где транснациональные инвестиции и не платят налоги, другое дело пресловутого L текущей туристической кампании блока Antighua и Барбуда мошенничества со стороны миллиардера Аллен Стэнфорд.

Cruise Ships Use Caribbean As Solid Waste Dump
The Associated Press
Published: February 28, 2009
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - Miles from shore in the open Caribbean Sea, cruise ships are dumping ground-up glass, rags and cardboard packaging. But vessels in other waters such as the Baltic and North seas are prohibited from throwing any solid waste overboard other than food scraps.
The difference? Many countries with coastlines on the world's most fragile seas abide by a United Nations dumping ban that requires them to treat ship-generated garbage on land. Caribbean islands, however, have yet to adopt the ban, saying they simply don't have the capacity to treat ship garbage on shore. They also fear the ban could push ships to dock in less-regulated ports of call.
"We don't have space to take nothing from nobody," said Travis Johnson, assistant harbor master in Saba, an island of 1,500 people that is building a new pier to accommodate larger cruise ships.
The U.N.'s International Maritime Organization outlawed dumping in 1993 for the Caribbean, a largely enclosed area where the string of islands blocks currents that would flush waste into the Atlantic Ocean. It will not take effect, however, until enough of the surrounding nations report their capacity for treating trash from cruise ships — information that the vast majority of nations so far have withheld.
The U.N. created the ban to protect areas that are vulnerable because of heavy ship traffic or sensitive ecology. It has already taken effect in the Antarctic, the Baltic Sea, the North Sea and the Persian Gulf and is due to come into force in the Mediterranean in May.
Environmentalists say debris dumped in the ocean can entangle sea creatures, damage water quality and alter ecosystems by providing habitats for opportunistic organisms.
Ignoring the ban also has its consequences for tourism. Some trash dumped in the ocean washes ashore with the winds and currents, fouling the beaches. In the Cayman Islands, the government has traced milk cartons on shore to a passing cruise ship.
"If you just dump this out at sea, eventually it gets back up on land," said Jeff Ramos, a Curacao-based U.S. Coast Guard officer.
In the Mediterranean, environmental officials say coastal nations are highly aware of marine litter and did not resist the ban.
"The issue of garbage from ships is very well-documented, at least in our region," said Lilia Khodjet El Khil, a Malta-based officer with the Regional Marine Pollution Emergency Response Center for the Mediterranean.
Under the current Caribbean regulations, ships can begin dumping garbage, including metal, glass and paper, three miles (five kilometers) from shore as long as it is ground to less than an inch. Almost anything but plastic can be dumped beyond 25 miles (40 kilometers).
The ban, if approved, would outlaw discharging of any solid waste at any distance except for food, which could still be dumped three miles (five kilometers) from shore.
The islands scattered across the Caribbean have struggled to establish a common policy because when it comes to the cruise industry, they see themselves as competitors. Cruise ship arrivals are major economic events, with passengers spending roughly $1.5 billion annually in Caribbean ports.
Governments are wary of driving away ships that might find fewer requirements or lower fees elsewhere.
In one notorious example, Carnival Cruise Line withdrew from Grenada in 1999 amid a dispute over $1.50-a-head tax to pay for a new landfill.
"Countries haven't forgotten that," said Christopher Corbin, a Jamaica-based officer with the United Nations Environmental Program. "They are worried that they will get played off against each other."
A trade group that speaks for the cruise industry would not give its position on the ban when asked by The Associated Press, other than to say it abides by all current regulations and already is taking steps on its own to eliminate overboard dumping.
Most ships under the umbrella of the Cruise Lines International Association have stopped discharges of solid waste in the Caribbean, according to a statement from the Florida-based group. It said some cruise liners, equipped with on-board incinerators, compactors and recycling programs, now generate less non-recycled waste than resorts on land.
The amount of garbage washing up on the islands from cruise ships has decreased significantly over the last 15 years, said Allen Chastanet, a former chairman of the Caribbean Tourism Organization.
Small, developing countries have not been able to impose the ban also because of divisions over who should pay to treat waste, said Chastanet, the tourism minister for St. Lucia, which has taken steps on its own to build new waste treatment plants.
The U.N. and the U.S. Coast Guard have held seminars on six islands over the last couple years to push for a regional approach in the wider Caribbean, which includes the Gulf of Mexico. The officers have stressed how vulnerable their tourism-driven economies are to pollution fouling their coastlines.
But advocates acknowledge it's a tough sell.
"There is a very strong feeling about taking other people's garbage, what's considered developed countries' garbage," Corbin said. "There's a stigma associated with trash."
Europeans join anti-Antigua campaign
ST JOHN’S, Antigua, March 15, 2010 – As Antigua and Barbuda announced it would take action to counter the smear campaign launched by investors who lost money in Allen Stanford’s alleged US$8 billion fraud, a group of Europeans gave its support to the Americans and Latin Americans in their boycott calls.
The Stanford Victims Coalition (SVC) European Group is demanding that the Baldwin Spencer administration hand over Stanford property or suffer the consequences.
It wants the government to act in accordance with a treaty which the investors said was co-signed with Germany and the United Kingdom.
Just last Friday, it was announced that Minister of State in the Ministry of Legal Affairs, Senator Joanne Massiah, who is also an attorney, had been chosen to spearhead government’s response to the ‘Anti-Antigua’ campaign that was launched by the SVC’s US group at the New York Times Travel Show last month.
“We demand they honour the treaty.”
--The Stanford Victims Coalition
“Owing to the viciousness of this campaign and the overwhelming negative effects it could have on our economy and citizens’ welfare, government cannot afford a simple knee-jerk reaction that could do more harm than good,” Senator Massiah was quoted in the ministry statement.
The announcement followed weeks of questions about how the government intended to respond to the investors’ offensive.
After the Americans launched their campaign to get travel agents, tourists and investors to stop supporting the country, the Latin American group said the move had its backing and it would be aiming to get a boycott of cruise lines which continue to stop in Antigua and Barbuda.
Then, this weekend, the Europeans issued their statement.
“The European Branch of the SVC would like the Prime Minister and his government to invoke Articles 4, 5 and 6 of the treaty that was co-signed by Antigua and the United Kingdom and also Germany ‘For the
Promotion and Protection of Investments’,” the statement said, noting that Article 4 of the Treaty addresses the Compensation for losses, Article 5 addresses Expropriation of land and assets by governments, and Article 6 addresses the Repatriation of Investment and Returns.
“We demand they honour the treaty,” the investors insisted. “Return the lands and assets ‘expropriated’, make good the loans of around $230 million dollars they acquired from Stanford and begin talks with the government leaders of Great Britain, Germany, France, the United States and all other countries involved. This will send a clear signal to the rest of the world that Antigua takes its obligations seriously and intends to clean up its international reputation.”
They have alleged, like the American investors, that the Spencer administration has refused to engage in dialogue with the investors.
“The government of Antigua has been given every opportunity to deal with this matter and correct their error in judgement when they seized the Stanford lands and property…For over one year the government of Antigua have steadfastly refused to enter into any debate or contact with the SVC, despite repeated letters and requests for them to do so,” they added.
The Europeans have warned that their campaign will be conducted throughout the whole of Europe and “the repercussions of this action will resound throughout the whole of the island and will affect every person living there.”
In addition to the boycott campaign, Stanford investors have filed class-action lawsuits seeking US$24 billion in compensation from Antigua and Barbuda.
