Its kinda like hiring a group of carpenters and having them show up at the job before the plans have passed review, then when you can't get your 60,000 square foot house plans approved you "lay off" your employees and blame the government! Lets just wait to see if the Superferry is even true to it's word to "Leave Hawaii"!!

About Hawai`i developing a "'bad reputation' as a place to
do business" if the SuperFerry is allowed to sink in it's
own folly - this statement is only true by half - here is
the rest of the story:

If we hold firm to our environmental laws there is not one,
but TWO messages we send out to the rest of the world,
businesses and their equity investors:

1) Hawai`i is a GOOD place to do GOOD business -

Come to Hawai`i - invest, follow the rules, respect the land
and the peoples and you will have healthy business and
respectful profits. You can know our laws will protect your
business from unfair competition by lawless corporations
that are more interested in their own operation than they
are of the operation of the rule of law. If you love the
place we live in and the health and well being of the
economic environment of law abiding 'aina repsecting firms
in the greater business community, come to Hawai`i.

2) Hawai`i is a BAD place to do BAD business -

When we are fair but firm, hold the line on our values and
laws even against HUGE financial interests with MASSIVE
political, media, and economic clout are not above the law.
When we remain steadfast in our resolve that even those that
claim to be 'Super' are still below the law, WE DETER OTHERS
from coming here and thinking they will also get 'special'
treatment. If you want to stuff neighbor isles, ignore our
law and twist our legislature to bend to your will, STAY
AWAY - you are not welcome.

Both of these messages are hugely beneficial for Hawai`i.
There is NO downside. They draw to us what we desire, and
repel that which would degrade our communities. Nothing
'bad' about that. In fact, this is the classic 'win-win',
and that's a very good thing.

Please call your state legislators and ask that they stand
up and stand tall for all of Hawai`i nei. No 'special'
treatment for 'super' ferries.

Again with caps... does your shift key get stuck?
Where are you headed with this argument? Yes business' consume resources, some more then others, some pollute more then others. Conscientious consumers make their purchase decisions based on the business's efforts to minimize their impacts on the environment. So again I ask, what's your point in trying to find a business with no impact? Will that make you and your capital letters go away?
Pono is the right way????? hmm how bout the drug ring that was busted..........HAHA kauai makes me sick

More abuse of environmental laws. If you want to stop the ferry, then stop it locally. I am sick of people using environmental laws as excesses for personnel agendas. Environmental agencies are undemocratic totalitarian regimes and fill with agenda driven personnel. If your legislator votes against your views, vote him/her out.
