Invite tourism yes--but show some responsibility and common-sense. That is to say; do regular air samplings and shoreline water-quality monitoring--and make the results public!

Certainly don't follow the politician/EPA style of mis-informing and mis-leading the public.

Would be nice if all that affected shoreline tourism were just man-eating shark attacks or stormy weather (the good old days).
