ENOUGH IS ENOUGH Petition
We the undersigned are opposed to the construction of the proposed Advanced Technology Solar Telescope (ATST) at the summit of Haleakala.
The disturbance, alteration and removal of sacred national resources and possible cultural artifacts would be a desecration of Haleakala.
The proposed development would have an adverse and devastating visual effect caused by the addition a 14 storied intrusive and culturally inappropriate structure.
The impact of traffic on our roads for the 7 year construction period, high noise levels, effects to our air quality, drain on our energy grid, incomplete water and waste plan are unacceptable; in addition there will be loss of revenue to local businesses associated with tourist to Halealaka National Park.
The National Science Foundation should not build this telescope on Haleakala summit.
