I must say though that the experience from a similar oil depot east of Heraklion is that pollution has not increased due to the tankers.
The main problem is that such a depot wouldn't look nice in a tourist area.

and there was also some chat on
yannis_s seems to think this is true, but I've now heard that it will be done at Souda, and then heard that it will be near Kalives.
All seems to be rumour, but could really do with some facts.
Any idea how to find out? My Greek skills are not much beyond the restaurant, so calling the Municipality of Vamos or Chania would be beyond me.
Ideas anyone? Or Documented Facts anywhere? Apparently there was a meeting at KH, but no one was informed, so was poorly attended!

I guess this means that it is true enough. Perhaps the reactions will manage to cancel the project but it doesn't look like rumour to me.

Funny thing is, that the president of the oil company will of course say that it won't be bad for the environment and only positive things about his own venture... no president of a company is truthful about things like that. Unfortunatly, the mentality today (espeically here in the US) is anything that is good for business is good, and anything thats not.... well thats not going to happen (global warming, and cutting emissions, etc). We can just all take the mindset that hey, when the skata hits the fan we'll all be dead, and it'll be someone elses problem.

When was he on TV? Was it recent do you remember, and was he talking in general terme sof a location near Chania, or actually to the location at Kokkino Horio / Plaka? Any information would be much appreciated!
Also, have there been any previous posts here about this, or the meeting that was held with no one being told - I would have thought that it may have been of interest?

If you can read Greek, then there is an article about it on www.ecocrete.gr

In Kokkino Horio the possible problem is something else - there is a proposed large brickworks factory in the area, which would involve trucks trundling up and down through Almerida, Plaka and Kokkino Horio.
Sounds like someone got their wires a little crossed, but both of these proposals are in the offing.
