Miami's Dreaded Dredging Proposal

I have still been working on my 'Accountability' project each week, but I haven't had much time to get certain editorials down in text.  Here is a photo from the Port of Miami shipping yard at Government Cut.  In December I hope to catch up with a few stories, one of them being about the amount of exports that come into Miami, where all of this stuff is going, who's in on the profits and proposals, including a proposed bill to dredge Biscayne Bay in order to remain a prominent figure in the international trade market.  This dredging is in response to the proposed Panama Canal Expansion Project, expected for completion by 2015.  What you maybe haven't heard is the extreme detriment that Miami's dredging proposal will have on biodiversity in Biscayne Bay, the Florida Keys Marine Sanctuary, and the commercial fishing industry, itself.  Please stay tuned to learn more about how these topics are connected and what this will mean to the future of Miami, Florida.


This photo was taken a few months ago from Government Cut while aboard a cruise ship called the SuperFast. Government Cut is not only used for the import and export of goods into the United States, but it is also home to one of the largest cruise line ports in the world.
