On this Earth Day, and amid calls for his resignation, Kenred Dorsett, Environment & Housing Minister, addresses the RUBIS Marathon fuel leak controversy, and why it took the govt. more than a year to release the findings of a report examining the environmental impact of the leak. He discusses the work that was done to address the leak, the ongoing monitoring process, and how the govt. plans to address such environmental challenges in the future.
We also discuss a myriad of environmental issues facing the nation: oil exploration and drilling, and whether there will be a referendum on this matter; the future of BEC and the move towards solar, wind and other renewable energy sources; the ongoing problems with the New Providence Landfill and the waste-to-energy plans; the status of the plans to begin vehicle emissions testing; the continuing problems of derelict vehicles; and dumping and environmental testing and cleaning on beaches in the country.
