The issue of an Oil Refinery in Dominica has raised many questions by different environment groups and occasions in Dominica. Not so long ago Prime Minister Skerrit made it clear that the oil refinery wonâ€™t be built until a complete environment impact study is done. But are still raising concerns by the Waitukubuli Ecological Foundation of the effects an oil refinery can have on Dominicaâ€™s environment.
Also the People’s Democratic Party leader Para Riviere said Prime Minister Skerrit failure to consult the people on the issue of the oil refinery is wrong, especially since the Energy Minister had said the people of Dominica would be the ones to decide.
With that being said, Dominica Weekly did some research on Oil Refineries and the effects they can have on an environment. We came up with these three videos by Terry Tamminen, who is an accomplish Author and Environmental Policy Advisor – take a look at what he has to say about Oil Refineries.
