Ometepe Volcano, Nicaragua. A Chinese industrialist wants to build a canal that will cut just south of this volcano. The proposed canal will cut across Lake Nicaragua and will destroy the lake. In order to break even the proposed canal would have to take all the current Panama Canal traffic for the next 35 years. No surprise this 50 billion dollar project is supported by the Daniel Ortega. Can you say kickbacks and environmental disaster. Google it. Lots to read about this.
