The Ike Dike- A thoughtful editorial

The following article was written by Jen Powis, a member of GBK's board of directors. Much of the expressed purpose of the Ike Dike is to protect the petrochemical infrastructure from storm surge and to protect us from releases from that infrastructure. Ms. Powis' editorial explores whether we should be using public funds and accepting environmental impacts from major construction along the coast when more limited development, funded directly by industry could achieve the objectives at a lower cost to the public and reduced environmental impacts. Take a moment and read it!
