Cahill Energy proposed Waste To Energy is a Waste of Time – NOT BARBADOS!

  • Kid #3: My Mommy says smoking kills.
    Nick Naylor: Oh, is your Mommy a doctor?
    Kid #3: No.
    Nick Naylor: A scientific researcher of some kind?
    Kid #3: No.
    Nick Naylor: Well, then she’s hardly a credible expert, is she?

This film was a seminal treatise on attempting to defend the indefensible, and clearly Cahill Energy is unaware or feels watching this movie is unnecessary when tackling Barbadians.

Their idea of a Town Hall was rudely sundered when they learned quickly Barbadians are not Tarzan's cousins in King Grass huts but highly trained folk who seem to have reached a boiling point for once - it is clear the current regime implied to Cahill that Bajans are a stupid and placid lot.

The panel’s idea of Q&A was very rudimentary and whoever was their PR dropped the ball in not having all of their group engage with a thorough debriefing and rehearse the most difficult and uneasy questions possible.

This article will have a lot of research and many hidden URL’s as I do not intend to explain everything so click away as we learn who are Peter Craggs Howe and John Robilliard? Even if their profiles come down, we have screenshots saved in case they’re removed!

Who are these people? Well you need to download some documents I found when a truck in Vaucluse drove off and left a memory stick behind (ahem) the PDF’s show a trail of Nominee Directors but tied to 2 key people in Guernsey.

I had a few spammers, they left an IP trail which I sourced to this company, not really savvy huh?

When you look at the first 3 videos I have done of the Cahill highlights, you’ll note Clare Cowan refuses to say who directors or shareholders are – it doesn’t matter as I was able to locate some of the incorporation which goes back 3 years, this leads one to wonder how far back the current Government planned this deal and who accrues benefits from it? More videos over the weekend!

Fireworks started the moment concerned Barbadians entered the LESC and were informed questions had to be written down to solicit answers from the panel assembled, including the much talked about Clare Cowan. In her opening statement she communicated the main purpose of the Open House was to debunk untruths being posted on Barbados Underground and Facebook.

A very informed crowd despite not having access to an open mike peppered the panel with questions about the project delivered by an obnoxious moderator. The bottom line: those who attended left unhappy because key questions were not answered or were deflected.

The disappointment for (Underground & Bajan Reporter) was hearing responses to two questions. The first was if Cahill Energy is aware of a plasma gasification plant built on any island of similar size to Barbados anywhere in the world. Clare Cowan answered she was not aware. And the second question: how would environmental standards be enforced – to which Clare Cowan responded a community effort is her best recommendation. She added the government will likely enact legislation borrowed from the UK or Canada to enforce the standards required.

Meanwhile a former Bank On Me contestant and a one-time UK actor now a Green manufacturer John Fayne Cleaver had his own concerns on why Cahill Energy is a Waste Of Time;-

Barbados is proposing to spend over $700 million USD on a Waste to Energy plant with a contract so one sided in favour of the firm who will run the project, Cahill Energy, Barbados will be financially liable for potentially billions of US dollars for years to come. In addition the potential Environmental impact is even more disturbing.

This contract has many undesirable elements for Barbados, the importation of waste from other countries, the importance of old tyres, the potential importation of hazardous waste plus numerous other tax and duty exemptions that will have such a negative impact on the future health and well being of Barbados for decades to come. The deal is so one sided in favour of Cahill, the Government has not even specified a minimum amount of electricity the plant must generate.

To date the environmental impact study has not been released leading to speculation one has not been done and as such there are grave concerns as to what safety measures are in place, who is responsible for the monitoring of emissions and who is responsible for the monitoring of safety procedures once the plant is in operation and what amount of liability Cahill will be responsible for should there be any negative health issues for Barbados associated with the plant.

The deal has been signed off by four Government Ministers (notably not the Prime Minister) with little discussion from Government as a whole.

Please inform yourself of the Barbados Waste to Energy Plant. There is a Facebook group called “Bajans Against $700M Waste To Energy Plant” where you will find all the information about the proposed project. Please share, write on any blogs you have access to and sign the petition, here is the link: https://goo.gl/5eStr4

Peter Craggs Howe and John Robilliard facilitated the Nominee Directors which is British for dummy corporations or shell companies, while we don’t know who is really arranging these Canadian marionettes, we are close in the sense we have a lead on who is trying to create shadows… this what we found on Howe;-

Peter Howe holds 3 appointments at 3 active companies, has resigned from 7 companies and held 5 appointments at 5 dissolved companies. Peter began their first appointment at the age of 41. Their longest current appointment spans 6 years and 11 months at CANNON HOLDINGS (SCOTLAND) LIMITED. The combined cash at bank value for all businesses where Peter holds a current appointment equals £269, with a combined total current assets value of £321,726 and total current liabilities of £373,488. Roles associated with Peter Howe within the recorded businesses include: Company Secretary, Director

(CLICK FOR BIGGER) If the plant is going to built here then why not use a local firm or maybe no PR outfit here wold be caught dead with such a notch in their holster? I's like to hope so but anything is possible?

What do Miguel Ramsay, Jeff Ballingall, Jade Alleyne and Nadia Pedersen have in common? Usually the same IP address, if not the same PR firm… Whose IP address? Well, only one of these names here has a real Facebook profile, so?

Don't take my word for it, look at the screenshots included. The initiative is so desperate to establish itself, they try to populate the comments on both my website and my Youtube channel!

After the virile and vehement session last night I learned a few things, some of the team are staying at Royal Pavilion which is not cheap! Also the PR outfit attempting to astroturf my site usually handles Government contracts and not private Canadian entities – does this project have deeper ties than originally foreseen?

  1. Nice work Ian! The story will unfold & we will get to the bottom of things. This project is so bad for Barbados, it simply has to stop. This is no longer a DLP or BLP issue like previous fiascos, this is potentially a National fiasco that has the potential to ruin the health & prosperity of the country for decades.
