The Falkland Islands have been for many years utilizing waste fuels and oil for energy from a variety of different sources and now the oil companies operating in the Falklands, having complied with all the safety regulations on storage and handling, are also contributing to the local 'processing' industry managed by Tim Miller and his greenhouse fresh vegetables enterprise.

    A good example of recycling re-use & environmental care and safety, to best practice standards. Well done.
    (This simply rubbishes Argentine “worries”/ threats about environment.)
    Plus, the produce on show looks pretty good!

    Can anybody imagine the cruise industry using argie vegetables when these are available?

    Even the 92 YO matriarch of the Argentine neighbours of mine always looks forward to coming over 'if only for good food, especially the vegetables”.

    this shows the way the islanders are prepared, and willing to keep everything environmentally safe, rather than the Argentines method of environmental action, which includes burning everything from flags to cowsg

    We have to congratulate Argentina in claiming No 9 ( Of 10 ) in the most polluted rivers of the world competition, and I give you the MANTANZA- RIACHUELO River in Northern Argentina. Well done Argentina, maybe next year you will make NO 1. Perhaps a visit to the FALKLANDS by the Argentinian Environmental Control Committee would be beneficial.

    Makes a mockery of the Argentine claims that the Falkland islanders do not respect the environment.

    Safety margins in finding oil-recycling waste oil safely to use as useful fuel-properly managed fisheries-40% of power produced by wind (which has cut oil use for generating electricity).

    Instead of spreading your bullshit, Argentina, you might actually learn something from visiting the Falklands and see how things are done properly for your benefit.
