"They like rules and regulations to curtail exploitation of the environment, but in the end the rules and regulations are what actually lead to more government morass and environmental damage."
ajm3s, what a load of illogical bull. Environmental laws protect the environment from the depredations of short-sighted or unscrupulous people who don't believe in the value of an intact, unpolluted ecosystem. If you don't like Silent Spring, I urge you to start getting your drinking water from a source polluted by untreated run-off and to try to ride out a hurricane in a house that isn't buffered by mangroves.
If regulations had been followed on Horr's Island (Key Marco my big toe), the native vegetation that was removed illegally would still be there and a lot of time and trouble would have been saved. It's not as though following the rules is hard; I suppose Key Marco just thinks it's above the rules. That the Marco Eagle would print such a pack of lies is not surprising, but it's disappointing nonetheless. That foolish commenters would cheer on such action is also completely unsurprising for Collier County.
