Jim Blackburn's Holiday Coastal Update 2013
reported by Jim Guidry
Tuesday, December 10, 2013

Environmental attorney Jim Blackburn has posted his annual Holiday Coastal Update about several projects on the Texas Gulf Coast. Document
  • The Aransas Project, a non-governmental organization that was formed to advocate for the ecological health of San Antonio and Aransas Bays and to protect the whooping crane;
  • Matagorda Bay, which he says is threatened by a decision by the Lower Colorado River Authority which voted to cut off freshwater inflows;
  • Lone Star Coastal Exchange and the proposed Lone Star Coastal National Recreation Area which is part of the SSPEED Center’s surge protection program; and
  • Rollover Pass, which is scheduled to be closed by the Texas General Land Office.

“Are we rushing to judgment here, going to the extent of strong-arming Galveston County into condemning the land, so that the GLO can appease some major donors by closing the Pass?,” Blackburn asks.

He concludes the update with a series of poems.
