Belize: Oil

Simone Elgeln gives an update on Belize's recent oil discovery and the efforts being made by the company which made the find to act the responsible corporate citizen: “The government needed a miracle and hopefully they got it in the form of this black gold,” says Simone. “Of course, we're all worried as to how this will impact the environment & what kind of corruption we're going to witness this time (this government has proven to be terribly corrupt). But all we can do is sit and wait & see how it all plays out.”
