The TMT Hearing Crowd

Lots of folks turned out before the state Board of Land and Natural Resources on Tuesday morning for the final hearing for a Thirty Meter Telescope construction permit. Plenty folks for and plenty against.

As Patrick Kahawaiola‘a said, "It's about the process. If you do not participate, you cannot grumble." People were very respectful of each other.  

There was an overflow crowd. This is what it looked like outside.

Here's what it looked like just prior to the start of the hearing.

Since everyone contributed to the process, we must aloha each other, no matter on which side of the issue we happen to be on.
