AAG says NO to gas terminal
in the Gulf of Trieste and surroundings
AAG is against the building of gas terminals in the Gulf of Trieste for reasons that it will bring large negative impact on the environment of the northern Adriatic Sea and it will bring detrimental effects to all three bordering countries (Croatia, Italy and Slovenia).
A gas terminal would bring damage to the sea habitat due to the cooling down and pollution of the sea waters and devastation to its fauna.
Safety, is a serious issue: risks of on-shore accidents and/or terrorist attacks as well as a threat to the approching (oil tankers, domino effect- fire explosions) would require the mandatory militarization of the whole area of the Gulf of Trieste. Consequently bringing a large economical damage to sea industry, fisheries , sea navigation and tourism.
The Gulf of Trieste is already under heavy threat due to one of the most important mediterranean oil terminals that occupy the city industrial area. The attack to the oil terminal of the year 1972 was devastating; for this reason AAG cannot allow the creation of additional hazardous risks to the environment and to its population.
The Adriatic Sea cannot and it should not become an European’s energetic region!! Environmental, health and their safekeeping are also local civil safety rights as well as of all inhabitants residing in the Gulf of Trieste and neighbouring countries.
