Experience Dominica – The Nature Island: Dominica Vacations | Exotic Vacations | Honeymoon Destination

Dominica weekly is a personal weblog about the nature island of Dominica.


The Caribbean isn’t in very good shape right now. More and More the air is getting polluted. The Caribbean Sea is becoming plastic soup. We’re in a financial crisis. Things don’t seem to be looking too good for the entire planet.

Yesterday the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat has outlined a renewable energy plan that it says will help it promote a more energy secure region.

According to Director of Sustainable Development at the CARICOM Secretariat Garfield Barnwell:

“The Secretariat’s energy programme is structured in a manner to build a foundation that could lead the region to provide its people with available, affordable reliable and sustainable sources of energy based mainly on the region’s indigenous resources.”

Don’t get me wrong, I believe a renewable energy plan for the Caribbean Region is a great idea. But there are a lot of people that have a lot of answer. Everyone thinks their answer is right. We need cleaner, natural sources for energy. We need biodegradable products that if dumped, will simply disintegrate within a few weeks. As far as the financial crisis goes, that’s a whole other story by itself. Some people say we need more regulation. Others say we need more jobs. Others still say the cost of living is increasing too fast for our incomes to keep up.

Everyone has answers.

The problem is, none of these answers address the fundamental problem. The answer isn’t in better solutions, fixes and different angles. The answer is… we need to do less.

See, the reason why we’re in this big mess is really simple. It may seem like there’s so much we need to do, to make things right. And that’s the problem right here. We don’t need to do more. We just need to make more of an effort to do less.
