Improving Hawai’i. That’s great. We can go against The Caribbean Islands. We can go against other areas of the globe for destination. This will make Hawai’i into a research area too. And not just aquatic life and sea life destination. World class destination.
I would rather the 210 million dollars be spent to actually DO something to restore our ecology rather than waste it on more scientific studies. The science is already clear. We need to eliminate all cesspools and replace them with septic systems. We need to eliminate all herbicide and insecticide testing, the runoff of which is poisoning our water and air. And finally, we need to eliminate all politicians who are opposed to making this a priority.
