State of Hawaii secondary Archives: on Environment

John Carroll: Support local agriculture and cultural uniqueness

Hawaii was once able to produce all the food needed locally; we are now almost totally dependent on importing food. Hawaii must restore incentives for the local production of food for local consumption, and support farmers and ranchers as entrepreneurial businesses. We must also renew our vigilance from invasive species that can destroy agricultural crops as well as indigenous endangered species. The same is true for the development and proliferation of aquaculture industries from offshore fish farms to algae production for biofuels.

Hawaii is unique both culturally and in its ethnic diversity. We need to protect those things that make us special, including our remarkable environment. Hawaii's beauty is one of its vital economic resources and must be kept free from pollution, invasive species and abuse. Our beaches and water quality are critically important, not only for our visitors, but for our own quality of life.
