Disaster at Paradisa Beach
PARADISA BEACH, A TOWN LOCATED IN THE DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF LEGO, IS MOSTLY KNOWN FOR ITS NICE AND CLEAN PRISTINE BLUE CRYSTAL WATER BEACHES (ALSO KNOWN FOR THE PARADISA MASSACRE MOC !!!!). PARADISA BEACH IS ONE OF THE TOP TOURIST REVENUE EARNERS IN THE DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF LEGO. BUT THAT WAS UNTIL MAY 2011, WHEN THE NEWLY ELECTED 2011 PRESIDENT OF THE DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF LEGO VLADIMIR LEGOVIA (ALSO AN EX-EXECUTIVE OF SHELL COMPANY) SIGNED THE LAW ALLOWING OIL DRILLING OFF THE COAST OF PARADISA BEACH. AS YOU WILL SEE HIS POLICY WAS A DISASTER FOR PARADISA BEACH.
About this creation

PARADISA BEACH USED TO BE A TOP SPOT FOR WATER SPORTS.


PARADISA BEACH HAD A GOOD OFFICIAL LEGO SET INFRASTRUCTURE IN PLACE.


BLUE PRISTINE BEACHES WERE THE MAIN ATTRACTION. THERE USED TO BE MANY SWIMMERS IN THE CRYSTAL WATERS.


BUT THEN EVERYTHING CHANGED WHEN SHELL COMPANY BEGIN DRILLING CLOSE TO THE BEACH.
SHELL COMPANY IS ALLOWED TO DRILL OIL WELLS CLOSE TO THE BEACH. NOT ONLY THAT BUT IT ALSO INSTALLED A REFINERY TO PROCESS OIL. THE WATER CHANGED FROM CRYSTAL BLUE TO A GREENISH DIRTY COLOR. THE BEACH FIRST STARTED TO CHANGE COLOR WHEN A SHIP CHANNEL WAS DREDGED (TO THE RIGHT) FOR CARGO SHIPS TO ACCESS THE OIL FACILITY. NOTICE ONE LONELY PARADISA BOAT FISHER STILL FISHING IN THE POLLUTED
NOW GREENISH WATERS. THE YELLOW TUBES THERE ARE WHAT REMAINS OF THE FIRST DRILLING WELL. WHEN IT DRIED UP, THE REFINERY IS MOVED TO THE NEXT WELL!


THE SMOKESTACK OF THE SHELL COMPANY OIL REFINERY! NOT ONLY IS THE BEACH WATER POLLUTED BUT ALSO THE AIR IS POLLUTED NOW.


TONS OF SMOKE COME OFF EVERYDAY FROM THE REFINERY.


THE UNDERWATER PIPES COMING FROM THE DRILLED OIL WELL ARE CONNECTED TO THE SHELL REFINERY PLATFORM. SHARKS ARE IN THE WATERS REGARDLESS OF THE POLLUTION !!


THERE WAS A TREMENDOUS LOSS OF TOURISM-RELATED JOBS. THE PARADISA CAFE FILED FOR CHAPTER 11 BANKRUPTCY AS THE NUMBER OF TOURISTS DRIED UP. HERE YOU CAN SEE THAT THE PARADISA ICE CREAM SELLER BECAME AN UNEMPLOYED SKATEBOARDER !!


THE TOURISM FACILITIES ARE IN VERY BAD SHAPE OR LITERALLY BROKEN DOWN.


THE SHIP CHANNEL WAS DREDGED TO PERMIT LARGE BOAT TO ACCESS THE OIL FACILITY.


OIL TAR BALLS BEGIN APPEARING ON THE PARADISA BEACH SAND !!!


SOMETIMES EVEN OPENED OIL BARRELS WASH OUT ON THE PARADISA BEACH SANDS !!


SOME MINIFIGURES ARGUE THAT THEIR LIVES IMPROVED AS A RESULT OF HIGHER PAYING JOBS IN THE SHELL REFINERY.


HEAVY POLLUTANTS FILL THE AIR. COMING OFF IS LEGO FIRE AS WELL AS LEGO SMOKE.


NOWADAYS THERE ARE ONLY LONELY SWIMMERS WHO DARE TO SWIM.


THE BLACK BOAT MINIFIGURE DECIDED TO GO SCUBA DIVING UNDER THE WATER TO SEE THE EFFECTS OF THE OIL DRILLING FOR HIMSELF.


MINIFIGURE SPLASHES INTO THE POLLUTED PARADISA BAY.


THE MINIFIGURE OBSERVES THAT THERE ARE ALSO OPENED OIL BARRELS UNDERWATER. THIS SHOT WAS NOT THAT EASY TO DO, BUT I LIKED IT, NOTICE THE BOAT ON TOP OF THE WATER AS SEEN FROM THE BOTTOM!

Yes, I like to follow up on the MOCS I do. But I will tell you that Paradisa Beach will not be the same again. The beach has been eroding very badly,and 'Paradisa Beach' will probably become a poluted port city for the Democratic Republic of Lego.

Nice story and great creativity you got there! But that's too bad what they did to the beautiful beach. Now I'm in for some court-brawling Lego action!
