      Carroll's guest is  Cathy Goeggel,  President of Animal Rights Hawaii.   They talk about animal welfare.  Cathy notes that studies indicate our eating habits have a major impact on our environment, and cows are one of the biggest problems.  Hawaii once had 60 dairies.  Now most milk products are imported.  Is the proposed dairy farm on Kauai a good idea?   Per Cathy, the EPA has said the dairy industry consumes a large amount of the fresh water in the world to provide dairy products and beef for human consumption.  There are also issues regarding the humane treatment of dairy cows.

      Cathy also talks about the Department of Land and Natural Resources' rat campaign to kill rats, including dead rat t-shirts and a push to adopt a rat trap.  She explains how the trap works by smashing the rat's head when it reaches into the trap to get peanut butter.  Originally, DLNR was established for game management to sustain hunting and fishing.   Now it is much more, and it is not transparent.    For example, Animal Rights Hawaii is concerned with the Fish and Wildlife Service's plan to "massacre"   hybrid ducks but cannot get documents.   Carroll and Cathy talk about problems getting documents from state and other governmental agencies.    

      Contact Animal Rights Hawaii on facebook.   

      Listen as Carroll, Cathy and callers discuss the issues.

      Carroll also talks about research he is doing regarding a vacant property on Maui the state has been leasing for $1,000 a day for the past 20 years.    The lease is non-revocable,  and is for a period of 30 years, ending in 2024.      

      Link here to a copy of the lease agreement for the property.

      Link here to the sales brochure for the property.  Asking price is $11,000,000.

                    Would you pay $1,000 A DAY to rent this vacant lot?


      DLNR does, while Hawaii's harbors are neglected and falling apart.  Here is what Keehi Lagoon looks like.  Link here to pictures of Kikiaola Harbor on Kauai.
