Abstract: George Schembri's contribution (The Sunday Times, February 22) titled "Our bread and butter..." leaves me at a loss for words. But most of all, it brings a sense of acute disillusionment. He aptly voices the public sentiment out there that the environment is all about well-kept roundabouts and rubbish in the streets, and that well-planned projects enhance our natural assets. His ranting that golf course projects enhance water catchment, that they need very little amount of herbicide and other similar mind-numbing wishy washy material, shows a good degree of misinformation courtesy of the pro-golf lobby. Yes, Mr Schembri, NGOs like Nature Trust do read EIAs before resorting to making statements.
