Molokai people oppose wind farm  

Credit:  Honolulu Star-Advertiser, www.staradvertiser.com 9 November 2011 ~~

State lawmakers Mike Gabbard, Kalani English and Denny Coffman along with Susan Kodani, district director for Congresswoman Mazie Hirono, spent Nov. 2 on Molokai listening to the community voice concerns on the proposed plan to build a 200-megawatt industrial wind turbine factory to supply the energy needs of Oahu via an undersea cable.

Three separate meetings were held with an accumulation of 200-plus people attending. Not one person spoke or raised a hand in favor of the project.

Numerous surveys, public testimonies, membership from organizations and petitions are pushing the number of Molokai people in opposition close to 3,000. The numbers are growing as more people learn about the negative implications of the proposed project and the wind energy business.

Molokai has never experienced a community issue that has been so overwhelmingly one-sided in opposition. Our hope is the lawmakers will share the truth and convince the governor to respect the wishes of the community.
