Jay Fidell’s article encourages condemnation of Molokai Ranch lands if the big wind parties fail on an agreed-upon plan (“Governor must ensure wind farm moves forward,” Think Tech, Star-Advertiser, May 10).
Recorded public testimony and a recent voting survey revealed residents on Molokai are strongly and overwhelmingly opposed to the idea of developing a 200-megawatt industrial-scale wind farm on 11,000 acres to serve the energy needs of Oahu.
Influenced by community opposition, First Wind did the pono thing and nixed its plans to build an industrial scale wind farm on Hawaiian Homelands.
Shouldn’t the governor agree that the “pono way” is to empower and allow the people of Molokai to ultimately decide the fate of the project?
