I assure my self because, I know how France developed vast nuclear energy projects that has developed so many difficulties on aquatic life of the world, I know how the world cooperate The Netherlands to stop flooding and to get more land from the sea with similar environmental problems, and so on. The only problem I understand from their petition campaign is that Gibe III and the beneficiaries are located in East Africa, where such NGOs want us to live as we were for their business.
