PUERTO RICO: Citizens Fear Power Plant Tragedy
“It is absolutely impossible to conceive of coal as a clean source of energy, as AES would have us believe,” says Jose Cordova, chemistry professor at the University of the Sacred Heart in San Juan. Cordova also notes that coal is a major contributor to the greenhouse effect.
The AES plant has yet to receive a permit to begin construction. In fact, the Puerto Rico Supreme Court has stopped the construction for almost two years now, and will allow it to proceed only after the permits have been acquired.
In 1995 the environmental lobby group, Greenpeace published a report on AES, which details numerous cases of environmental destruction and dishonest business conduct on the part of the company.
