This picture is of the Vasiliko power station, recently fixed after the explosion in 2011.
As anyone with a pair of eyes can see, there is heavy polluting smoke streaming into the atmosphere.
Since we are now in the year 2013, when the polluting effects of oil-based fuel are well known, it must be apparent to all except those with vested interests that this plant is harmful to the environment.
So when will we see some real results from all the talk about using natural gas? And when will the Electricity Authority of Cyprus join the 21st century and start offering solar energy sourced electricity to the communities it serves?
All good questions. All unanswered. And believe me, I've tried to get answers.
It is this writer's opinion that it is high time things changed for the better - for the health of the community and the environment. Anything less means that the authorities are refusing to do anything about the obvious problem here.
