The (Czech) creature from the black lagoon

The dispute at the Czech waste dump known as the Ostramo lagoon should serve as a warning ahead of plans for the giant eco-tender, championed by the Finance Minister Miroslav Kalousek. In both cases, the idea is for a consortium to resolve major environmental problems. The effort at the black lagoon near Ostrava, led by the Geosan Group — a favorite in the eco-tender — has been a distinct failure.
