No To Offshore Drilling in Belize | The People’s Referendum
Offshore Drilling in Belize should be a no-brainer, a definite NO but unfortunately those who run our country think otherwise. Apparently negotiations to explore offshore drilling in Belize have been going on behind the scenes for quite a while now.
I cannot imagine why they made the decision to entertain this but it is obvious that the country of Belize is alarmaed and voting NO to what could lead to the end of tourism in Belize. Why the end of tourism? Well, who would want to come to swim, snorkel, or dive in oil infested waters…NO ONE! We all boast proudly that we have the second largest Barrier Reef in the world but if the government allows offshore drilling in Belize then we can kiss goodbye our reef and all of its ecosystem.
There are a few saying, “I don’t depend on tourism so I don’t have to vote.” Whoever says this is plain ignorant because we all depend on Tourism. EVERYONE!!!
So if you haven’t taken a few minutes to run to the central park and vote against offshore drilling in Belize, PLEASE DO SO!
