Scientists are appalled at Nicaragua's plan to build a massive canalClimate Scientists should not worry at NICARAGUA’S plan to build a massive canal for their Economic development and it is best for Climate Change Correction.

The Nicaraguan government has approved a plan that would see the country cut in half by a 177-mile-long canal. The new route would boost the country’s economy and rival the one in Panama — but scientists say it would be an environmental and social catastrophe.

Construction on the $40 Billion canal is scheduled to begin in December. It’s being built by a Chinese company called the Hong Kong Nicaragua Canal Development Investment Company (HKND). The Nicaraguan government and the HKND say it’ll boost the country’s GDP by 11% annually and provide up to a million new jobs in the years following the canal’s construction. They also claim that it’ll expedite global trade.

For starters, it’ll cut a swath through Lake Nicaragua, which is where most of the country’s drinking water comes from. The new channel will be lined with industrial centers, airports, new railways, oil pipelines — and the rights to any natural resources in the area.

“Nicaragua Canal” is not like Panama Canal. A wider canal with 177 Kms.  long. Most of the soils & rocks excavated will be used to build too much land area which will be used for many heavy duty industrial projects. More over many new business will be opening in both banks of the Nicaragua Canal.

Through this project the Pacific Ocean will be directly connected to the Caribbean Ocean & Atlantic Ocean. Compared to Total Dissolved  Solids (T.D.S.) of Pacific Ocean, the Caribbean and Atlantic Ocean’s high  T.D.S.


More over, after the commissioning of Nicaragua Canal Ocean Conveyor Circulation System will have a different pattern compared to the map hereby. The salinity s of all Oceans can be mixed together in a wider range so that the following will happen:

  • Intensities  & numbers of hurricanes will reduce to minimum.
  • After the hurricanes, a part of Concentrated deicers from Middle East Desalination will not directly go to both Poles, but will circulate around the Glob.
  • Presently, after the Hurricane seasons the Concentrated deicers are deicing ice shelves even in Winter.
  • By building more ice masses and glaciers 3°C can be easily reducible and the Sea level raise will not be.
  •  Nicaragua Canal is not only good for Nicaragua, but also good for the World because East and West trade will increase.
  • More over, Nicaragua Canal will mostly near the Equatorial line of Planet Earth. It will correct the climate most important thing is it will create equilibrium  of Temperatures and Total Dissolved Solids of Oceans and Seas.
  • The designers of the Nicaragua Canal will also include Sea Water desalination Systems so that the inhabitants of the region will not have shortage of drinking water.
  • The Arctic ice shrink-ed during 2012 because more Concentrated deicers from Arabian Gulf were brought by Hurricanes including Super Storm Sandy. Melting and Deicing are two separate process. The Concentrated deicers deiced Arctic ice.
  • Many ice shelves at Antarctica, mostly at Southern Ocean collapsed earlier during winter, emphasis added. Scientists are telling that ice shelves are melting due to Sun. Earlier Scientists told that the Sun is always low on the horizon, even in the middle of Summer.
  • Every body are agreeing that Antarctica Peninsula is -49°C during Summer and new cold weather record – 93.2°C ( in – 72°C you can not inhale three minutes, DEATH ). Then why many ice shelves disintegrating during Winter?
  • My recommendation is after Hurricanes season the flow of sea water from Pacific Ocean must be towards Caribbean  Sea so that winter deicing of ice shelves in Southern Ocean can be terminated and can build more ice masses. So that 3°C reduction is easily achievable  –>>> “AIR CONDITIONING OF MOTHER EARTH”

The project was repeatedly considered by the US in the 19th century, before Washington decided to put its money on the shorter Panama option, itself considered one of the greatest engineering feats of modern history. Proponents of a Nicaraguan canal say it will be able to handle bigger ships than its rival, and benefit from rising Asia-US trade that will outstrip the capacity of the existing canal.

Nonetheless, in June, the country’s Sandinista government rushed through congress a law giving Wang a century-long concession to build and run the waterway, despite a lack of public bidding and less than a week of congressional debate. Wang was given the green light in exchange for US$10 million a year once the canal begins operation, plus a 1 per cent stake that grows by 10 per cent each decade after that. That’s a far smaller cut than many private companies give up for the right to build big projects in other developing nations, said Noel Maurer, a Harvard Business School professor who studies business practices in unstable countries, particularly in Latin America.

“It’s a terrible deal for Nicaragua,” said Maurer, author of the 2010 book The Big Ditch: How America Took, Built, Ran, and Ultimately Gave Away the Panama Canal.

Nicaraguan officials have least to Wang’s and their own defense, stressing that Chinese companies are involved in some of the most ambitious construction projects around the globe.

“Those who doubt it oppose the project for political reasons more than realistic ones,” ManuelCoronel, Nicaragua’s deputy foreign minister, said recently.

” In the Environmental, Climate Change  & Global Warming point of view this project is good for Nicaragua  & BEST FOR MOTHER EARTH“.
