Oil is Not Sustainable.
- Our country is facing more intense Hurricanes due to climate change and this is compounded by sea level rise. We cannot afford the dangers posed by an oil rig in our waters and we must lead the way for a clean energy future.
- There are sustainable alternatives for economic stimulation and energy development that do not put our future at risk.
- The oil drilling regulations in place are inadequate to protect our islands in the face of the new climate reality.
- Oil is only affordable because the companies do not cover the true costs. The Bahamian Government doesn’t have the resources to clean up a spill.
