Hypocrisy in Spain, petrol and political interests

Hypocrisy in Spain, petrol and political interests
Ignacio Zara


Jose Manuel Soria, the new Minister of Industry in Spain, has stopped the development of renewable energies statewide, suspending bonuses and opting for the development of fossil and nuclear energies… Dangerous? Maybe, and more if we think of REPSOL, a controversial company due to its possible abuses with local populations (South America) when searching for new sources and now, a company supported by Soria to drill off the coast near Lanzarote and Fuerteventura, the most beautiful islands of that paradise called Canaries.

Apart from the unacceptable environmental impact and touristic damage, main activity of these two islands, the major discussion in Spain comes from the hypocrisy of reactivating oil explorations in the Canarias islands while in the Mediterranean Sea, between Valencia and Ibiza, he is doing everything possible to cancel a similar exploration.

The truth seems to be: leaders of his party (PP) in Valencia and Ibiza promised during the elections to stop oil explorations in the Mediterranean Sea (precisely, for their impact on the tourism sector) but the president of the Canaries islands, Paulino Rivero, doesn’t belong to his party and Minister Soria doesn’t pay attention to his claims.



Yesterday, Paulino Rivero met Greenpeace and he has promised to fight against prospections, which are frozen by court order since 2004.

Do you think of hypocrisy?
