Ah yes that will enhance the Islands ecosystems..blast all the rocket fuel exhaust into the environment and become toxic like southern USA..Benzine and other toxins. Health care costs go up..life expectancy goes down. Children getting dumber..wild life disappears, flora withers, thats about right for another genius at work.
You don't wanna hear that right..rain on the ol planet killer parade does it ?
