Carroll continues his discussion regarding the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT). Today he talks about the lease agreement between the Department of Land and Natural Resources and the University of Hawaii, and notes it expires in 2033. Carroll also notes, specifications of the lease states it includes "an observatory". Does that mean just one? Was the lease agreement subsequently amended to include more observatories? Is an observatory a telescope? Is a telescope an observatory?
In the original Lease S-4191 dated 6/26/68 (see attached), Item number 4 regarding "Specific Use" refers to "an observatory", not multiple observatories. Do the numerous observatories now on Mauna Kea invalidate the lease? If anyone has documentation showing this matter has been addressed, please contact Carroll at 808-782-6627.
Carroll also talks about the endangered Palila, a bird found on the slopes of Mauna Kea, and how the matter was handled by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Some are falsely claiming the Palila is extinct, but the pictures on this page were taken by Carroll Cox in June of 2018. Many trees in its habitat were removed during construction of the telescopes. Has the Palila lost all protection?
Once again, rules are circumvented and ignored.
