the politics of Green and Everglades Restoration-
Recently I viewed another TV commercial urging Floridians to contact their Representatives and URGE them to BUY the Sugar Land..??? Although I was anxious and excited about the Original Proposal (CERP )while Charlie Christ was Governor, I quickly changed my mind after a Lecture and Meeting with Mr. Harold Wanless of USGS…!!!
The proposed Sugar Land that we salivate for is a Parking lot of Sand and Rock… US Sugar and Florida Crystal have depleted.,DEPLETED the land of Organic Materials, Sediment and Muck needed to Re-create a “River Of Grass”
I would like to Urge you to contact Florida Representatives and continue to SAY NO.. to the purchase of EX-Sugar Lands.
The Politics of Green.
-a fellow ORI task force member would like to share this info.
I told her this would never happen close to shore. -just another diversion.
What do you make of this article.?
NON BIAS REMARK:
The United States of America’s economy is involved in a Global Market, not National.
I do not appreciate you talking to us like Mice on Cheese.
Please understand that if China, France, Spain, or Greeces’ economy were to crash we would be affected, and we need to Export more. Basically we need to Export more products to grow jobs now.
Also, kinda personal. We need to elect a Global Ocean President to represent our Ocean, for all Countries.
APEX Predator of the Sea. Sharks? I think not.!
The Politics of Sharks by ORI’s William Djubin.
Aren’t Sharks also scavengers? do they also eat dead flesh? Would an APEX Predator consume already dead catch?
– Sharks are not the APEX predator of the Sea. (Snapper a better candidate actually.)
