We started this blog in response to the lies and deceit propagated by old school environmental NGOs against the Don Diego phosphate extraction project. We wanted to create a site where interested parties could come to find factual and objective information so that they could become better informed about the project.
Traditional environmentalists stuck in the “man versus nature” mentality, regularly miss the big picture implications of developments using new technologies. In the case of Don Diego, their parochial views blind them to the fact that the project will actually help the environment by reducing development of more destructive terrestrial phosphate projects. When these groups spread lies and misinformation about Don Diego they not only endanger the lives of thousands of Mexicans but they also harm the environment. They have effectively made a lose-lose out of a win-win project.
