Why the big fight now? This document, and many others Carroll has recovered, shed light on why.
Bridget Hammerquist joins the conversation to tell us about her visit to the Mauna Kea protest encampment, how the community is working together, and how well it is run. She also notes, University of Hawaii President Lassner, on PBS, admitted UH has not done a good job maintaining the scientific site. Now, everyone is wondering how they will manage the huge TMT telescope they are proposing. It will be nearly 100 feet above ground, and 5 stories underground. How will that affect the mountain? Bridget also notes, it will take ten years to build the telescope, and by that time it will most likely be obsolete due to advancements in technology.
Bridget tells us about the problems the Big Island Dairy caused on the Big Island, and how it was finally shut down. She relates the state's management of the dairy permits to the handling of the telescopes.
