NOAA facts forum - part 3 - Stephen D Kroll

This is Stephen D. Kroll - Diver and Member of the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary Advisory Council, Alpena, MI - speaking at the NOAA Facts Forum held at the Sheboygan Yacht Club on September 21st, 2017.

Mr. Kroll, while sincere, is currently working with NOAA . He also seems to sincerely believe that those who oppose this will and should change and nothing else is reasonable. That, in itself is an unreasonable position.

As for his dimes and grants and whatever, this nation is TRILLIONS of dollars in debt. We have unfunded liabilities that could reach to the moon.There are no more dimes to be gathered. And the implication that Thunder Bay is better than Wisconsin because they have a marine sanctuary - really? Are we twelve years old playing "my state is better than your state" now? Attempting to invoke a competitive reaction? What else have you got? Because adults, who have to pay the bills know that competitive reactions cost too much when sober consideration of the issues involved is necessary.

This blog has also posted video from a meeting held in March to organize some opposition to the proposed sanctuary. (Which was the first time this author had heard about it even though the process has apparently been going on for some years.) That video may be found here.

My apologies for the shakiness of the video.
