Libya and Western Civilization

Speaking of Cyrene, on page 3 of the Times International section is an article about Saif al-Islam el-Qaddafi, a Ph.D. student at the London School of Economics, and the son of Libya's president. A photograph of Mr. Qaddafi speaking from the Greek ruins of Cyrene accompanies the story. He's speaking about tourism, but there is clearly a wider, symbolic, appeal being made to the West.

Hi. The announcment made at the Cyrene declaration was to announce the formation of the green mountain development corporation which is as you say responsible for eco tourism; however it is also about creating a 5,000 sq km low-carbon sustainable region that includes renewable energy ( irrigation, reforestation, microbanking and other an array of other projects aimed at protecting their environment from climate change and creating a sustianbale infrastructure for there people.
