Coal-fueled power plants could harm tourism, US expert warns

Santo Domingo.- At the conference he led recently in the city of Baní (south), American expert, Ernie Niemi, warned that the use of coal to generate electricity could affect the country’s tourism activity.

He said more and more tourists from developed countries prefer environmentally sustainable destinations, with environments without pollution, and which contribute to reduce carbon dioxide emissions that cause global warming and climate change.

He said that a country whose electricity matrix is predominantly based on mineral coal and in relative terms large emitter of CO2, “is not an attractive destination for tourism, especially as the other destinations in the region that promote environmental sustainability and nature conservation as a brand.”
