Protests & Petitions - Why Florida Doesn't Need To Buy More Everglades Land

Citizens are being misled by environmental groups about the progress of the Everglades Restoration Project.


By Jacob Engels


Whether you are a Republican or Democrat - liberal or conservative, Floridians can all but agree that protecting and maintaining a healthy Everglades is a top priority. Over the past 15 years, the Everglades Restoration Project has been working to maintain and improve the Everglades. Focusing on water quality, protecting wildlife and the ecosystem - the $10 billion dollar project is in its final stages.


But as it reaches a successful completion of 43 projects under the oversight of water and environmental experts, the Everglades Restoration is facing an unlikely opponent - environmental special interests and political operatives. Never-mind the fact that over 95% of the water in the Everglades is testing at a quality higher than or equivalent to premium bottled water like Fiji or Evian, the leaders of the Everglades Trust and Everglades Foundation are pushing for an additional land purchase - financed by Florida taxpayers.


In their plan, the state of Florida would have to purchase $500 million dollars more of land in the Everglades and spend an estimated $2 billion dollars restoring it. Why is this a bad thing?


First off, the very things that former operatives of Charlie Crist and Barack Obama are pushing for under the guise of "Saving the Everglades" are items and areas that are already being addressed under the current and almost complete plan. But if Florida completes a successful Everglades restoration, the executives and board members of these groups will no longer have ways to justify their high salaries and consulting fees. Seems it's less about "Saving the Everglades" and more about "Saving our Pocketbooks," for these political dealers.


It's also worth noting that the Co-Founder of the Everglades Foundation, New York hedge fund billionaire Paul Tudor Jones has a history of polluting. Jones, who bills himself as an environmentalist - was once fined $2 million dollars for destroying wetlands in Maryland, In 1996 Tudor Jones was caught red-handed dumping raw septic into the Florida Bay. Some environmentalist!


Even leading scientists and environmental experts agree that raiding millions from the Amendment 1 fund to purchase tens of thousands of more acres in the Everglades is not needed for a successful completion of the Everglades Restoration Project.


Nancy Smith of the Sunshine State News, also noted earlier this month that the crowd pushing the purchase of more Everglades land is playing fast & loose with the facts. "Eikenberg and the Foundation-Coalition-Trust are still twisting reality like a hairstylist with a French braid."


And it seems like Floridians are starting to take note of these tactics and are fighting back against the proposed purchase of the 46,000 acres south of Lake Okeechobee . Since the beginning of March, we have seen missives from at least two South Florida Tea Party groups and another ad hoc group named Florida Citizens Against Waste.


The groups are each pushing their own petitions, asking the Florida legislature and cabinet officials to think twice before committing $500 million dollars or more towards more land.


"We must finish the final phase of successful Everglades Restoration and not divert money to the acquisition of 46,000 acres of farm land which will have little or no effect on Everglades restoration," said Nicholas John Kakanis - the Director of Florida Citizens Against Waste.


His group is billing the purchase as a massive "land grab" by the state government, who along with the federal government, own more than 25% of land in Florida. That is more than most states and the most of any state this side of the Mississippi.


Under the "Stop The Land Grab" moniker, FCAW has circulated a petition.


"The science doesn’t support the purchase. State and federal agencies don’t want it. Agricultural producers oppose it, and those of us who want our tax dollars spent wisely oppose it."


Today, the South Florida Tea Party, chaired by Everett Wilkinson, organized a protest at a South Florida Water Management District meeting at 9am. The board was meeting to discuss the proposed additional land purchase. Wilkinson burned a symbolic $2 billion at the protest, what he says would be the hidden cost of using the disputed land for a reservoir.


Several other groups who have expressed concern over using taxpayers dollars to fund such a purchase also pushed people to attend and voice their opinion. Even though "there is no such thing as a free-lunch", a benefactor for the Tea Party Miami, co-sponsoring the protest, provided a free lunch for protestors. We will have more information on the protest as we get it.


Protest and petitions aside, elected officials should realize that what has happened with the Everglades Restoration Project is a rare thing. We have scientists, environmental experts, water experts and the state and local governments working together.


We have achieved cleaner water, protected our wildlife and significantly improved the protections we have in place to keep the Everglades healthy. Why throw a wrench in that?


Bottom's time to finish this project and move on. If we need to discuss further improvements, so be it. But you can't fairly judge the success or failure of something until it's complete and we need to finalize the restoration as we set out to do almost 20 years ago.

Success in this industry requires engineers to balance experience with innovation in order that projects are delivered safely while ensuring that best practice constantly evolves with the latest tools and techniques.

The Naval Analysis Group in Saipem London office focusses on supporting offshore heavy lift and pipeline installations for projects around the globe. As exploration has moved into increasingly challenging territory, the engineers and naval architects have sought to continuously invest in and improve their operational practice in order to better serve the operations they support.

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) has been used in the offshore industry for a number of years, often focusing on specialized applications such as heat transfer or multi phase flow. However, the wider application of CFD beyond specialist groups has been limited by the complexities involved in geometry handling, meshing, and solution procedure. Not only this, but the hardware and time frames required to deliver solutions on anything other than the most basic geometries renders it difficult to use in operational environments.

Saipem saw an opportunity to address these issues Women's Puma Voltaic Shoes through the adoption of FloEFD and first trialled the code in 2007. Following a successful evaluation period in which FloEFD was deployed to simulate a number of geometries including a semi submersible crane vessel (Figures Mens Puma Tour Cat Lo L 1 3), a J Lay Tower, and Mens Puma Tour Cat Lo L an offshore construction vessel, the Mens Puma Mummy Shoes program became core to its problem solving capabilities.

French fashion house Louis Vuitton expand their role in America's Cup with new deal

The America's Cup have managed to persuade glamour label Louis Vuitton to stay on board for the revamped regatta as it sails towards a 2017 showdown in Bermuda.

Louis Vuitton has been involved in the cup since 1983 and become synonymous with the challenger series.

That looked in danger after the low number of challengers showed up for the expensive last regatta in San Francisco in 2013 and with Dunk SB High Cut their front man Bruno Trouble expressing grave concerns over the direction of the new event that has seen smaller catamarans introduced and controversial changes made in mid cycle.

"This is a vulgar beach event smelling of sunscreen and french fries. This is definitely NOT the Cup," Trouble said earlier of the Bermuda plans.

But the waters have been smoothed and the famous French fashion house will now be the title partner of the America's Cup World Series, the America's Cup qualifiers and challenger playoffs as well as the presenting partner of the 35th America's Cup match.

"Over time we have built a partnership that is quite unique in sports in terms of its longevity and our relationship is strengthened by more than 30 years of shared history. But now is the right time to take a major step forward. Under this agreement, Louis Nike Flyknit Trainer Vuitton is extending its involvement throughout the entire event," Harvey Schiller, the commercial commissioner of the America's Cup, said in announcing the new deal.

Louis Vuitton will assume a prominent role in all aspects of the event, ashore, on the water, in international television broadcasts and on online platforms. The world series begins in Portsmouth, England, Nike Zoom Crusader XDR on July 23.
