The Grand Nicaragua Canal, which is wider, deeper, and 3x longer than the Panama Canal, is currently being built by a Chinese billionaire. Some say it's a boon to the economy, some say a destroyer of the environment. Do you support this canal?
I could lean either way. It could be both.
I don't know - what do you think. I didn't find anything about it.
I think I basically agree with that as China has a really abysmal environmental record and Nicaragua although I don't know is likely just in it for the money.
It's going to bring fierce competition to the Panama Canal. Yes Nicaragua was the original location for the Panama Canal, but the workers were dying of malaria and yellow fever, something that must not be an issue today. This is very unfortunate...
...because it threatens Panama at a time it's expanding to accommodate post Panamax ships and will steal business fro Panama. The businessman is an asshole; the Nicaraguan government should get to decide themselves. I think we should start ...
...reconnaissance flights in the area to monitor this sly practice.
