Canaveral — not Cumberland

Canaveral — not Cumberland

November 7, 2014  |  Ear to the Sand

A private space port launch pad has been proposed directly across from Cumberland Island, which would require frequent closures of Cumberland Island National Seashore to the public. It would consume and pollute massive amounts of water. It would also result in innumerable harms to ecology and human health. And it will cost taxpayers billions in promised federal subsidies and tax breaks. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has already pledged $6 billion toward a private launch site for SpaceX.

Meanwhile, just down the coast from Cumberland, the under-utilized Kennedy Flight Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida, would welcome the additional traffic. If the FAA is going to spend $6 billion in spaceport development, why not use the existing, federally funded infrastructure that is already in place at Cape Canaveral and hardly being used?

Organizations across the Southeast are organizing against the proposed space port across from Cumberland Island. Join us in saving money, water, and wildlife by urging the FAA and SpaceX to move the proposed space port to the existing federally funded launch pad Cape Canaveral. Sign our petition on the home page and spread the word.
