Insights: Lanai & Molokai

On the June 30 episode of Insights, host Dan Boylan will engage residents and community leaders from Lanai and Molokai about the wind projects being proposed there which may affect the economic future of the islands. We've been hearing a lot about "Big Wind" lately, but much of the information has come from the state, wind developers and the electric utility. We'll hear what some of the locals think about how wind energy would or wouldn't fit into their island communities, economy and culture. They'll also talk about their hopes for the future and the direction they'd like to see their rural economies take. 

The guests include: Alberta De Jetley, owner & publisher of Lanai Today, farmer and member of Lanai Planning Commission; Kanohowailuku Helm, founding member of I Aloha Molokai, a community group opposed to wind development on Molokai; Robin Kaye, member of Friends of Lanai, a community group opposed to wind development on Lanai; and Walter Ritte, a Molokai resident & activist.
