Let us talk about this Nicaragua Canal Proposal.
A Chinese businessman drafted a proposal today to creat a $40 billion canal across Nicaragua. The canal will compete with the Panama Canal and give a Chinese shipping company a 50 year lease.
MY OPINION: As an environmentalist, this proposal could lead to the depletion of Lake Nicaragua and its entire tropical ecosystem!! On the contrary, this plan would offer jobs and probably be the rise of Nicaragua’s economy. But the ecosystem, that lake is a massive body of freshwater.
