Jill Engledow has a good round-up on implications of shutting down HC&S's cane farming on her Maui Then and Now blog.
She'll be slimed.
She does not consider EMI's water leases. I don't see how these can be preserved, although first the diversified agriculture that A&B proposes to replace cane will have to fail, I suppose. It will.
This cannot be good for Wailuku Water's leases either.
Good news for the Hawaiians and their supporters who want streams restored. Just don't expect any more poi.
The antismokers, a group with no aloha, are going to eat dust. I hope they like it.
