I Aloha Molokai

The "I Aloha Molokai" is a project opposing the 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.  While other islands in state have been overdeveloped, Molokai is the last truly Hawaiian island in people, culture and lifestyle. 

Check out the kickstarter documentary project by PF Bentley.  For additional information on "I Aloha Molokai" and the proposed installation of the wind turbines, visit  the "I Aloha Molokai" website.
