Protect Port Aransas!

The Port of Corpus Christi Authority (PCCA) is proposing to build a supertanker port at Harbor Island in Port Aransas to service very large crude carriers (VLCCs), each of which holds 2 million gallons and is larger than the aircraft carrier Enterprise. Then they'd dredge the ship channel from its current 47 feet to 75-85 feet, generating 98,200,000 cubic yards of spoil and destroying an estimated 3,077 acres of critical wetlands, endangering the fishing and tourism industries on which Port Aransas depends.
This ecological disaster could be avoided if PCCA would build an offshore terminal like the one a private company has proposed. But PCCA has taken an adversarial position and is trying to get the governor to veto any offshore projects. We're just asking the governor to let this process unfold fairly and honestly, letting the public and the permitting agencies decide which approach is best.
