GOLF destroys constantly. Even from the inception. The construction phase and much worst, afterwards. The green areas management practices requiring: gasoline, propane, diesel, oil for the reel lawnmowers, leaf blowers and trimmers, noise/smoke, C02 in detriment of FLORA/FAUNA.
If you are ignorant, research on your own, you do not have to believe
what is stated here. Quite a few are in deserts like Nevada, Dubai and others. These courses have to be watered 17 times a day to keep the greens lush and smooth. The turf is cut twice, morning and afternoon.
That is not all. As BEATO, has stated in Alcantarilla Alquimica.blogspot, the pollution from herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, and fertilizers to water streams and acquifiers is significant. They kill many creatures thanks to phosphate and other chemicals.
Palmas del Mar is some ritzy resort for the wealthy foreigner and islanders wanabes in Humacao City, in the south of the isle.
'Residentes buscaran alternativas al cierre'
Are you ready for numbers? Check this out. "At this time, Palmas Country Club owes 27 millions to the Tourist Development Fund, while the loan they applied is for
17 millions. From the year 2000 up till 2009 the enterprise has subsidized the resort operations to avoid closing, with a cost of
36 millions. Of this amount two thirds were used as a payment for the debt with Tourism, according to Morgan Stubble."
Meanwhile ChiChi, the former second rate pro, with a golf club somewhere in Guayama City, went bankrupt with a debt of 12 millions. On top of that this philanthropist, whose only desire was to 'create jobs', was accused by a disgruntled employee of stealing water.
GOOD NEWS for environmental watchers as your humble servant. BAD news for real estate scam operators, banks, mortgage originators securities speculators and everyjuan else.
ENVIRONMENTALISTS with any sense of honesty, SCOPE/VISION lacking everywhere, will have to declare a ban on GOLF, construction and highway development, a moratorium if I may. Otherwise, all the current crap, spoken, written, advertised and preached daily, particularly in the asphalt/concrete isle by 'Arboles de Puerto Rico' to name one, and others with hidden agendas will be put on the spot by yours truly.
I feel from my observations in Feisbuk, that people without any CREDENTIALS, are embracing the ENVIRONMENT out of the blue. The only reason I can understand this LOVE, is the intention of
writing to obtain grants from the FEDERAL government, without any fucking understanding of what BIODIVERSITY IS or SHOULD BE.
I am sick of it. Every fool now feel is their duty to talk, write, about trees out of context, as if NATURE is JUST trees. Islander jerks, please educate yourselves about the WHOLE. A tree by itself means shit.
Understand that protecting the environment, implies attacking, denouncing, changing your foolish way, perception of life. The biggest enemies of the environment are: Mines, Construction/Highway
Developers, Commercial Fishing, Nuclear Energy, the Oil Industry,
ignorant jerks: Alberto Areces Mallea, Phd, Fundacion Luis Munhoz Marin, Fideicomiso, Recursos Naturales and every other fool, including the local edible gardeners schools, fruit trees, without
any desire to explore, to learn about the many aspects of the environment. It is more than soil, it is air, water. It is not for future generations. I want my environment for right now, without any further
delay. And that is that.
Move to the first paragraph, there was NO
Tiger 'the unfaithful fool' Woods.
But he was not the first, Calvin Peete and perhaps
another couple tried to play GOLF.
But you know the story.
I do not have to get into it.
Regarding tennis. Like golf
a somewhat elitist sport.
Unlike golf, friendlier to the
environment, since you can
play on a few surfaces, including
asphalt...Time to go..
