Namibia have diamonds, still the country is poor, we have fish that is exported over the world, still poor. Will oil get the nation out out of poverty? Our top leaders are just interested in money. They don't care about impact in years to come, knowing that they will be 6ft under. Greedyness will kill our foolish leaders in Africa.......God made man, man made money, money made man mad.....

50 to 90% of profit oil is taxed and given to the government to support the countries development and pensions. Not to mention the supply chain economy that would provide labour for these incredibly poor people. If Africa has oil it should develop it and profit from its wealth the same way every white woke person on here has as well as their entire extended family. Liberals you would all be as impoverished as Namibians without oil. Your lectures are meaningless hypocrisy while you use your petrochemical products daily. It's in literally everything you touch. And your wealth is connected to its use.

The last dying flailing of the fossil fuel industry is to destroy yet more of the natural world. The Canadian government should step in and find ways to stop this company doing any damage. Maybe by making the enterprise uneconomical. Forcing it to place in Escrow the money required to repair the environment back to it original condition. A few hundred billion dollars should do.

It's a complicated, thorny issue, with no easy answers. Oppose expanding oil exploration and drilling; know that the people in nations that rely heavily on oil production don't always benefit as much as those profiting, that oil wealth can be in fact detrimental to a nation's development; and am cognizant that more oil production could result in more harm than benefit to the people of Namibia and other places because of climate change. However, the people of Namibia could achieve some increase in their standard of living by exploiting any oil reserves there, at least in the near term. Just as the U.S. pays farmers and other landowners to allow parts of their lands to remain fallow to allow the soil to regenerate itself and to provide space for nature, there is incentive for the world to compensate nations like Namibia for leaving the oil in the ground.

I find it ironic that a Canadian drilling company called ReconAfrica is exploiting a country in Africa once again and the politicians allow them to do it.

A percentage of the population seem to live in huts and shacks. The United States has the same problem.

Best thing to ever happen for Namibia. It will pull them out of poverty. Namibia desperately needs the funding oil will provide. Locals are for the project, government is fully behind it. Hopefully they will find natural gas also as Namibia only has dirty coal power plants which are so heavily polluting the country. Hopefully Namibia and its people will succeed in this project and reap its benefits. They have every right to explore and market their natural resources. Outside influencers will try to hold them back. Bottom line, the world needs oil resources in addition to wind and solar power. Oil has many uses, and is necessary to thousands of products used in all our daily lives. Win win for Namibia. Good luck to them.

If I were a Namibian, living in a hut with limited food and water I would be doing dances for recon and praying they find oil for the sake of my family and the future generations of my country. You can either get left behind in the world like most places are, or you can push to succeed like the Namibian government is doing. Sure we need to worry about the climate, but we don’t have the infrastructure, especially in a place like Namibia to go all electric

@Ryan Crawford they roll up to the government, make their demands, and they government gives them "permission." This happens in america all the time to native americans when land is desirable to corporate interests, but in poorer countries it's much worse.

They don’t just roll in on people property they they tell the land owners why there wanting to work and ask for there permission to work on there land aka permits. And they do get permission they pay the land owner as long as they’re there
Canada took their land.

I've got 3 v8 fleatheads in the garage and over 30 engines in different bits of equipment. I love the internal combustion engine but I also feel sorry for anyone that has oil found on their land.

Reminder: Arizona's elected officials have every right to audit Maricopa County's election. The Constitution gives State Legislators authority over elections. Instead of going with one of the two preselected audit companies for a minimal Logic & Accuracy test of the voting machines, Arizona's Legislative Body hired independent experts to complete the most thorough election audit in modern history. This includes a complete forensic audit of the voter rolls, paper ballots, adjudicated ballots, ballot images, voting machines, and the entire Election Management System (EMS). There are nine live camera feeds available for transparency at There are three cameras above each table recording the inspection of each paper ballot. These recordings are not being made public in order to keep voter information private, but will be held onto as evidence of the transparency of the process and verification of the findings. In an era of hackable voting machines, and with both major parties doubting the integrity of recent elections, Arizona's Legislators should be celebrated for taking these steps to verify the integrity of our elections

The vaccine is the bioweapon. Specifically, the spike protein is the bioactive weapon, and it is designed to spread from person to person, being transmissible from the vaccinated in order to infect the unvaccinated. People who are injected with the mRNA vaccine are having their bodies turned into bioweapons factories, churning out spike protein particles which they shed through their mouths and skin, infecting everyone around them. The spike protein is biologically active and causes blood clots, leading to strokes, heart attacks, pulmonary embolism and infertility effects. We've finally figured out the exact mechanism of how this vaccine is designed to achieve global extermination. It's called a "self-replicating vaccine" because the vaccine spreads like a virus and infects everyone.

Modern day colonization. Just watch and see how they demonize, stigmatize, and criminalize the local indigenous people, in order to legitimize the contribution to global warming. Ijs🤷‍♂️
