Flooding In Trinidad & Tobago - Page 4
Comments: One has to wonder why this surprise regarding the excessive flooding on the island. We pride ourselves as being 'educated' yet- over the years we have allowed developers and greedy politicians to turn a blind eye to the destruction of natural vegetation, land formations and water courses. We have 'qualified engineers' 'qualified environmentalists', 'qualified land developers'. 'qualified inspectors'. Yet NONE have been able to stop this ongoing rape of the island's natural defence to flooding, hurricanes.
We will soon face 'starvation'. This has nothing to do with hard working men and women of island- but all to do with the 'educated' blinded by greed, money, power, corruption and envy.
