I’m rather offended by this over-generalization and lack of precision, which only furthers harmful stereotypes and mis- (or lack of) information – e.g. ignorance.

There are 57 countries in Africa!
This include’s the world’s newest addition: South Sudan, which happens to be where your dot is positioned in the image above. If this is in fact the location of the project you speak of, then please use a current map that actually reflects this country’s existence, much less name it accordingly. Thank you.

(For specifics on African countries, and an accurate map, check out: https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/wfbExt/region_afr.html)

Otherwise, I appreciate your effort to track and disseminate information on harmful carbon bomb projects around the world.

Love,
-Kimberley
