Science, technology, space, high tech jobs...sounds great doesn't it? It is not without its negative impacts on the ecology, the wildlife, and the public. Our aim is to minimize those negative impacts. 

Our concerns include but are not limited to:​

  • Texas Open Beach Act and State Hwy 4 closures

  • Missing and lack of information in Draft Programmatic Environmental Assessment

  • Tiered Reviews (past, present, and future with a Programmatic Environmental Assessment)

  • Lack of a launch failure analysis (to include impacts to proposed LNG and crude upgrade refinery operations at the Port of Brownsville)

  • Accountability and illegal operations and conduct

  • Wetland destruction

  • Impacts to the ecology and habitat (e.g. Lower Rio Grande National Wildlife Refuge, South Bay Ecological Preserve, Boca Chica State Park, etc.)

  • Impacts to wildlife some of which are threatened or endangered

  • Adherence to the National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA)

  • Land Use compatibility

  • Impacts to infrastructure in Port Isabel, Long Island Village, South Padre Island
