Re. the destruction of the Almeria (and anywhere else) coast, a friend was just telling me of a programme she saw on Canal + last night about the subject. The thing that seems to stick in her craw most is that a lot of these projects are being backed by, or built by foreign companies. I agree with Jesús that people's sense of heritage has to be appealed to.
Re. Greenpeace and La Manga, if a court can veto a project on the grounds of climate change as we've seen in the north then the law should be with Greenpeace on the coast.

Greetigns All,
I fully agree that it's necessary to appeal to people's sense of heritage, but in the meantime, the courts - I think in just about every country - short-sightedly uphold people's right to property. The courts accepting the considered opinions of scientists from CSIC is one thing (and we still haven't reached the end of the saga  >:D ), but accepting the c. opinions of those d*** ecologistas at Greenpeace is another matter...

Regs.,

Re. my comment above/below (?) regarding courts, Lisa's just posted a new one on me http://www.iberianatureforum.com/index.php?topic=1201.msg13807#msg13807
I'm getting too old for this game, 'cos I'd never have thought of it meself: the court intentionally demands a ridiculously-high fianza that cannot possibly be met - by those not having unlimited public funds available to them, that is - and the delinquent gets away scot free (Sp. anyone?) - while the judges are only doing their job. Now where have I read/heard of that before?  :booklook:

Greetings All,
A propósito de (En. anyone?) the torrential rains these last 24hrs, following our recent hols. in Almería and every day driving past the Playa de Mácenas golf course - which we were dismayed to see was actually in use - I have it on very good authority (Sp. anyone?) that that particular course is in great danger of being washed away by the torrential rains endemic to the region, and to that particular rambla  :dancing: Hadn't occurred to me, but I did experience those rains one night and they were hairy...

Luckily no one will get hurt 'cos no one plays golf in torrential rain.
