These people are so wrapped in global warming, that they can not see that global warming and CO2 start with cutting down all this vegetation, it provides a clean environment and Oxygen while taking in CO2 and purifies the AIR that we breath every day, we need all this vegetation to survive.
I can not believe that people are so dumb and would allow this to happen, or is it that you did not learn any thing in school but, Sex, Partying and Sports, from what I can see today is that school is for a pay check, and NOT EDUCATION, and a big push to play and promote sports.
I learned in school that you need trees, grass, and water to maintain a good environment, other wise get rid of them you have Global Warming and less Oxygen to breath, take your pick, a desert with no clean air, or a country that is green and healthy with clean air to breath, it is up to you and no one else, so if you let them to keep cutting down all this vegetation, you will have Global Warming.
If this is what you want, less vegetation and more planes polluting the air, go for it but don’t complain when Taxes, Utilities, Fuel go up to fight Global Warming, remember you did it. And remember YOU can not cut any thing down for safety but they can.
[REMINDER: The Port of Seattle’s Community Meeting and Open House on the Flight Corridor Safety Program – intended to remove around 2,800 trees at and around Sea-Tac Airport – is this TUESDAY, Nov. 1, from 6 – 8:30 p.m. at Bow Lake Elementary in SeaTac (map below).
“Removal and replanting of the trees will ensure Sea-Tac complies with all Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations protecting approach and departure surfaces into and out of the airport,” reads an announcement.
The Community Meeting and Open House is intended to provide residents with additional details about the program, including information stations with subject matter experts and an opportunity to offer questions and comments to Port of Seattle Commissioners.
More than 4,000 native, low-height trees will be planted by the Port in the first phase of the three year program to replace approximately 1,200 trees on Port property. The Flight Corridor Safety Program is divided into phases for trees on Port properties, publicly owned and commercial properties, and residential properties.
Overall, the program has identified approximately 2,800 trees to be removed in the three phases based on location: 1,200 trees on Port property, 1,400 on publicly owned or commercial properties (about 1,200 on Washington State Department of Transportation property, many on land set aside for future Hwy 509 expansion), and an estimated 180 on residential properties. Trees on residential properties will not be affected until 2018. Each resident will be contacted and offered a number of alternatives to choose from to best meet their needs.
