The Tenerife Association of Friends of Nature (ATAN) has described this Monday as a “farce” the “declaration of climate emergency” of the Government of the Canary Islands in 2019 and that of Parliament in January 2020, before the approval of new projects to fill the island of Tenerife “with piche and concrete”.
The Cabildo de Tenerife, with the rejection of Sí Podemos, approves investing more than 5 million euros in the Motor Circuit
In a statement, the association denounces the works of the port of Adeje (a luxury tourism project) that have been generating rejection in recent weeks. Actions that, together with others such as the motor circuit approval on the same island he believes that they are aimed at “transforming the territory and filling the island of Tenerife with piche and concrete”.
These are some projects, which the group denounces as being produced in the midst of an unprecedented crisis in fossil fuels and energy generation, “while the management, conservation and restoration or monitoring of natural habitats, of the spaces and of the wild species, is totally insufficient and deficient due to lack of means”.
In the letter sent this Monday, Atan also highlights that in the official bulletin of the province on May 16, it was announced “the approval of the strategic environmental declaration of the plan part of Los Maguenes, in Guía de Isora, for tourist use and that contemplates a new golf course in a territory, such as the south of the island, in an accelerated process of desertification and with a well-known water deficit. Of course, the strategic environmental declaration (issued by the city council itself) concludes that the partial plan will not produce significant negative effects on the environment”, he points out.
“More cement, more consumption and alteration of the territory, more energy consumption and scarce natural resources. The sale and destruction of Tenerife does not stop”, regrets Atan.
