To foster a balance of conservation and economically sustainable uses for Port Aransas and its surrounding neighborhood and waterways while recognizing that our community and economy is dependent on tourism and fisheries within a healthy barrier island coastal ecosystem.
We want to be perfectly clear that we're not anti business, we're pro environment. We support the Port of Corpus Christi's goal of increasing America's energy independence and bringing more jobs to the area. But our goal is to see this achieved with as little environmental disruption as possible. That's why we're proposing an offshore oil terminal instead of their ecologically disastrous plan for Harbor Island and deep dredging the Corpus Christi Ship Channel.
Well, let's see: The Port of Corpus Christi is already in the midst of work to deepen and widen the Corpus Christi Ship Channel, a massive $327 million undertaking being done in conjunction with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The project would deepen the current channel from the inner basin to Ingleside to 54 feet and possibly 75 feet. Harbor Island would become a staging area for two Very Large Crude Carriers (VLCCs), each of which is 100 feet longer than the carrier Lexington. Plus Harbor Island would host a 20 million barrel tank farm directly in the path of hurricane storm surges. What could possibly go wrong?
The threats to Port Aransas and the Coastal Bend are huge. Your generous contribution will help pay for advertising, consulting and legal fees, all of which are critical to our success and all of which depend on your support.
