    but over the years have come to believe that the only way to keep people from destroying everything is through first hand appreciation, education, and experience of wonderful places.  I live on the opposite corner of the island and we are constantly fighting to protect the Kaiwi coast (a tiny spot of undeveloped shoreline left between Makapuu and Sandy beach) that is brimming with tidepools, estuarine bays, and swimming spots) from becoming a high end housing development. When I've taken folks there, they are always shocked at what a beautiful little oasis it is and they become part of a growing force to protect it.

    •  That works if you are taking one or two at a time. (2+ / 0-)

      Let the rest of the world know about it, and your "beautiful little oasis" will be a garbage dump in no time.  

      There are just too many people.  Yeah, I'm a cynic.
