What do you mean 'waste of money'?
Assisting research isnt a waste of money...
Wildlife viewing (whales, sharks et al) isnt a waste of money...
Enjoying and taking in the spectacular views and seascapes isnt a 'waste of money'...

I dont know you are talking about- and either do you.

Wanna debate about it?

Have at it,

Keep the noise pollution of helicopter out of wild areas and out of Big Sur. There are plenty of alternatives to doing the research without creating more impact and problems. Research from helicopters is like Sarah Palin hunting from them (I know a little extreme).
The history of science... especially the life sciences is filled with people that made great contributions without getting an institutionalized "education." There is room for all to contribute to what we know... just don't do it from helicopters

Going over Big Sur with a Helicopter is no problem and generates no noise pollution due to the fact that surveys and flights are conducted at 1000 ft altitude which is the legal limit established with sound and other impacts factored in. The use of a helicopter for research or private interest has nothing to do with Sarah Palin or Farrah Faucet or Phylis Dylar... contrary to your retarded and unfounded remarks such over-flights cause no problems or impacts-- moreover, Ill go to Big Sur anytime I feel like it. There are laws and guidelines and so long as we conduct ourselves in accordance with these regulations you dont have much to complain about. So--- Youre comments are ill founded, false and with dubious motivations. I love flying.
Thanks, happy holidays! Santa Claus is coming to town!

I know how frustrating it can be when you are up against academic researchers. I have been into science my whole life and have US patents incorporating many areas of study including shark defense.
I have been ridiculed by the best but it just makes you stronger.
Keep on moving forward Sean.
