Cuban economists make lemonade. Or so the media would have you believe. As Val kindly pointed out, I wrote something about the preposterous claim that Cuba defeated “Peak Oil” over at CubanAmericanPundits.com. Here’s another believer in the Cuban economic miracle. Only this time it’s Cuba’s smaller ecological footprint that is the result of the harsh economic times Cuba faced in the 90’s.
Of course no mention of the smokestacks belching filth into the sky (to borrow a line from Sting), no mention of the rampant prostitution, no mention of the waves of rafters risking their lives to leave the island. Why would there be? Cuba is an environmentally friendly version of Disney Land, the happiest place on earth. 😉
