$2 Billion Dollars Burned In Symbolic Protest Against Everglades Land Purchase

Late last week, a group of tea party activists and Florida citizens gathered in Greenacres Freedom Park in West Palm Beach to protest a proposed Everglades land purchase.

 

By Jacob Engels

 

Floridians are mad as hell about the proposed purchase of more land in the Everglades that is being pushed by politically inclined and motivated Everglades Coalition and Everglades Foundation.

 

The land, which was appraised at $500 million dollars several years ago has since expired, meaning that the state would have to go back and negotiate the price. Observers say that they believe it could cost as much as $1 billion dollars to purchase the land today, and another $2 billion to restore it.

 

Tea Party Miami leader Eriv von Tausch said that the land that the Everglades Coalition and Foundation are pushing is not even in the right place. "It would cost billions to upgrade the land for use as a reservoir, which would have NO effect on Everglades water quality."

 

Tausch also argued that the expensive land purchase would make no hydro-logic, environmental or economic sense," Tausch continued.

 

His claims are backed up by leading scientists and environmental/water experts who say that diverting state money away from the almost complete Everglades Restoration Project would be costly and trying to fix something that is not broken.

 

South Florida Tea Party head Everett Wilkinson lead the group in burning the symbolic $2 billion dollars, before attendees began walking off camera.

 

"Protecting the Everglades and making sure our water is of the highest quality is something all Floridians want. However, we must finish the Everglades Restoration. It's been 20 years and almost $10 billion dollars. It's working and money should not be diverted."
