 Dominican sunrise

There is something about our Dominican sunrise, the first few hours of the morning that make us feel cleansed and rejuvenated, ready to move forward enthusiastically. Many traditions consider the light of the rising sun to be particularly divine in its origins; this is why so many people in the world face east when performing ritual.

But as the day wears on, we lose some of this dynamic energy and the inspiration it provides.This is may be why when thing are not going well we look forward to tomorrow as providing the possibility of renewal. We too can cultivate that rising sun energy inside ourselves, carrying it with us to light our way through any time of day or night.

One simple way to do this is to carry a photograph of your favorite rising sun with us in our wallet or purse. We can also post this image on our wall at work or at home, or have it as our screensaver on our cellphone or computer. And just take a moment to gaze at the image, allowing its light to enter into our hearts.

Environmentalist Athie Martin says the commissioning of a fuel tank farm in Dominica sends an unfortunate signal to the world.

At a time where the larger economies are looking to move away from fossil fuels whereas Dominica, an island bursting with potential for renewable energy is moving rapidly towards a dependence on fossil fuels.

Martin believes this move will have future generations settling a massive accumulated debt, and that the Petro Caribe agreement is disrespectful and undignified and shows no account for the enormous amount of work done to preserve Dominica’s natural image.

And that the country is moving away from its strengths and embracing a commodity which is not one of its natural assets. He is of the view that although Dominica is small, it can be totally energy independent, not on fossil fuels but on the abundance of natural renewable energy which is available on Island and the technical aspects of any processing activities need to be organized to ensure the island is kept clean and green.

Otherwise Dominica could be regarded as the country which had a chance at leading the world with its green economy (something Venezuela should do as a true friend to Dominica), but instead gave it all up for a few barrels of oil.

If the united Workers Party opposition leader Ron Green is serious about its proposal for a Greener Economy, and the party wins the 2010 general elections, Dominica will join the many developing countries striving to develop a green policy for economic development.

Even the United States of America, the leading proponents of “Brown Economics” has felt the need for a change and has began shifting its focus towards a green economy.

In the Dominican context, a full scale adoption of a green policy would create new and sustainable jobs in sections such as the construction, by remodeling buildings to make them more energy efficient. And in the electricity generating and distribution sub-sector, by creating new systems that make use of renewable energy sources such as geothermal, wind, solar and water.

Nevertheless, the point we need to stress here is that Dominica, the Nature Island of the Caribbean, and is in a unique position to advantage of dawning of the new age of green economics.

But we don’t need a new general election for our government to change course towards developing a greener economic policy – policies that will be adopted by all political parties and bring sustainable development to Dominica.
