Abercrombie: Environmental Critics Are 'Apocalyptic Naysayers'
By Chad Blair 03/29/2012
On Senate Bill 755, which has pitted groups that want job growth versus those fearful that it will come at the expense of the environment, Abercrombie suggested the latter group has overreacted.
"It's just that some folks seem to be professional naysayers, and sometimes the facts don't always measure up to the rhetoric," he said. "I tend to wait and see what the legislation actually says, if and when it passes, and then, obviously I will have to make decisions about it."
"The sky is not necessarily falling during the legislative session," Abercrombie continued. "There is a tendency for apocalyptic statements being made about what is going to happen or not happen."
"However Hoopili works itself out, you've got a Land Use Commission that goes back to a couple of governorships, you've had decisions made over a number of years — it's a secondary issue to me," he said.
