Following is an excerpt of piece by Roy Innis and Niger Innis of CORE. The detestably immoral policies driven by the “Greenies” in Africa should shame them all. For more information about how the environmental fanatics are literally killing African people, read the book, Eco-Imperialism: Green Power. Black Death by Paul Driessen. There is a two-fold concern here: 1) the deadly impact of eco-imperialism on African peoples; 2) the move toward the same deadly policies in America.
Blessed with abundant supplies of coal, South Africa has applied for a World Bank loan to continue building its 4,800-megawatt Medupi power plant. The Medupi plant would be equipped with the latest in “supercritical clean coal,” pollution control and “carbon capture” technologies.
However, the project and loan have run into a buzz saw of opposition, led by the Center for American Progress, Africa Action, Friends of the Earth and Sierra Club. These radical groups claim to champion justice and better health for Africa, but oppose the very technologies that would make that possible.
“Telling Africans they can’t have electricity and economic development – except what can be generated with wind turbines or solar panels – is misguided at best and immoral at worst,” Cudjoe declares.
