This week an environmental assessment study into the possible effects of drilling for oil in Lake Malawi was completed. Oil production, especially to a country like Malawi, can be a big economic boom for the region. Environmental risks should always be factored into the equation whenever drilling for oil is considered. Lake Malawi isn’t just where cichlids come from, it is a source of water and food for millions of people. That being said, a troubling detail about the environmental assessment is that it is being conducted by the same company licensed to drill for oil. The study isn’t being conducted by an independent organization that can gain from turning a blind eye to environmental dangers.
