The current SEA LEVEL RAIL ROUTE will be a WASTE of MONEY-

It's based on 1970's Transportation Route data!--Not 21st Century Science.

UH and US NASA, NOAA scientists say the Rail Route is OUTDATED.

The Route runs too close to SEA LEVEL- It MUST be changed or $6 BILLION will be wasted! BILLIONS MORE will be needed to
FIX the problem unless CHANGED.

Read the http://globalchange.gov/ REPORT

SEE what the Sea Level Rail Route will look like here-

The RAIL ROUTE will see advance of the ocean inland-

In Mapunapuna, baby hammerhead sharks swim in 2 foot deep pools- land is sinking and inland sea flooding drains. see Waikiki in just a matter of decades-

The FTA and EPA will NOT approve this route!

Do you believe MUFI, YOSHIOKA and APO-

Or UH Ocean Scientists???

"In Hawaii, sea-level rise resulting from global warming is a real
concern." says UH SOEST

1. Marine inundation of low-lying developed areas including coastal roads,
2. Erosion of beaches and bluffs,
3. Salt intrusion into aquifers and surface ecosystems,
4. Higher water tables, and
5. Increased flooding and storm damage.

Roadways that are too close to the shoreline should be rerouted away from the ocean.


Waikiki hotels should include rising sea-level countermeasures when undergoing renovations.


The Rail Money should be used NOW - It's TAX-PAYER Money- It doesn't BELONG to Mufi, Yoshioka or Apo-

If people living here actually takes the time to see the beauty of nature and cultures that's so abundant here, maybe, just maybe, they would realize what a special place Hawaii actually is.

I agree with Rick, that all the Islands have a distinctive appeal, much as the various states in the continental United States have. But, I cannot imagine anyone thinking Kauaii is dorky. It is real, with real people who are friendly and not afraid to communicaate with Mainlanders. I think it is beautiful and peaceful. Kauaii is the one island where I have been able to have meaningful conversations with native Hawaiians, and I really appreciate that openness.
