About this project

UPDATE 9/21/11:  We now have I Aloha Molokai hats added to our rewards for pledges of $100 or more. Available in green or black.         

I Aloha Molokai opposes installation of wind turbines on Molokai and undersea cable from Molokai to send power to Oahu. This grassroots group of Molokai residents and off-island supporters are fighting both big business developers and the state government in Hawaii to stop the destruction of Molokai as we know it today.  The area of West Molokai is rich in ancient historical sites that would be destroyed and wildlife that would be killed by the construction of ninety 420 foot wind turbines to power energy hungry Oahu.

I Aloha Molokai opposes installation of wind turbines on Molokai and undersea cable from Molokai to send power to Oahu. This grassroots group of Molokai residents and off-island supporters are fighting both big business developers and the state government in Hawaii to stop the destruction of Molokai as we know it today.  The area of West Molokai is rich in ancient historical sites that would be destroyed and wildlife that would be killed by the construction of ninety 420 foot wind turbines to power energy hungry Oahu.

This is an ongoing and growing issue for Molokai and something residents are very opposed to.  In two recent polls over 95% of the population do not want wind turbines on the island.

Big Wind continues today with the preliminary process over objections of the community. The last public meetings with Pattern Energy and Biological Capital held in June where very heated at times.

While other islands in state have been overdeveloped, Molokai is the last truly Hawaiian island in people, culture and lifestyle. 

This is also a very personal project for me.  I live on Molokai and specially West Molokai where these 90 wind turbines are planned to be built.

I am seeking funding for travel expenses to produce more documentary short films to stop wind turbine projects on Molokai and seek positive non-destructive energy changes for Molokai and all of Hawaii.
