Ms. Case refused to recognize that TMT and the larger astronomy community in Hawaii has made sincere efforts to recognize the larger issues in our community. Education is a problem, poverty another, and there are also health issues. TMT offered numerous times to meet with us and many accepted the invitation and requests were made. For these reasons TMT will be a zero waste facility. The entire building was reconfigured to leave a smaller footprint. A special coating was created so there would be less reflection. All the staff who will work at TMT will be from Hawaii. The construction crew is from Hawaii, they have been waiting for many long months to go to work and build TMT. The Think Fund, through the offices of the Hawaii Community Foundation and Pauahi Foundation offer STEM scholarships to qualified students for higher education, to date 85 students. There are also class room grants, and teachers grants. TMT will sit on a slab of basalt, in the astronomy precinct in the Conservation Resource Subzone that is zoned for astronomy only. Much effort by the University of Hawaii has been made to meet the demands of Ms. Case and her followers. Lands will be returned, obsevatory leases will be reconsidered, more education support for the keiki, this was part of the Malama Maunakea Resolution by the UH BOR. It's time to begin construction. All voices were heard during the CCH and HSC. Many Native Hawaiians see astronomy, TMT as part of our culture. It's not desecration. Rather it is learning, exploration and more.
