Unspoiled Nature Island in the Danger

I read in the newspaper that the Prime Minister is going to sign the contract with Venezuela to build Oil Refinery in Dominica. One more pristine corner will be erased from our planet with one stroke of the pen. I'm lost for words but my emotions speak aloud.

The economy of this country will be finally undermined:

Firstly, tourist will not show up here anymore – which person would travel through all this complications just to get to an island with permeated smell of oil? As a result, not only the people, who work in the tourism industry (hotels, guides, divers and others), will lose their jobs, but also the people who serve them – shops, supermarkets and etc.

Secondly, it will agriculture end: who wants to buy bananas, coffee and other products grown on the oil? Rare species of fish will become extinct, giant turtles and whales will not be here anymore too.

Thirdly, all smart people, who do something or understand the situation on the island, will the first to flee hence; the rest of people will just follow them later. As a result, on the island it will remain 400 staff of oil refinery and 400 firefighters to extinguish explosions.

That is such a joyful picture of the future for the pristine nature island, which is listed by UNESCO as a greatest world heritage.
