No, the Gulf Coast does not have a monopoly on green policies being used to steal your freedom and bankrupt you -- to coin a phrase -- but is only (for now) the latest example. Watch this.
As gut-wrenching as this is it is actually a very common tale, or at least the elements are present in every hare-brained consequence I have encountered in two decades of the vague, sweeping "environmental protection" regimes which have flowed from Washington, enacted in the name of salvation though -- as the narrator here asks -- it makes you wonder what's really going on. I no longer wonder; I yell it from the rooftops.
When such extremism dominates, the typical response is ultimately a countervailing extremism. America is different. Sadly, however, we do tend to simply allow the casualties mount from policies that, after all, we're assured were adopted with the best of intentions. Even were that true, so what? Look at what you are doing, to people. Surely there's a middle ground.

Beach visitors and local citizens have coexisted in harmony with the birds and turtles in the past, but are now being pushed out by environmental groups.
We must stop the take over of our land by environmental groups and the government. Please watch the video that Chris Horner is writing about.
Another link to the video. Please watch !!
Yeah, that thread. ;^)
For those unfamiliar the bird/human government priority is really really out of balance, i.e. extremist, on this coastal reach. The video observed here may touch on being one-sided (that is, the government's argument is not presented, if there is one), but we are talking about a seriously flawed government perspective. Vast stretches which are indeed rightly protected from civil development are being outright denied human presence and passive natural enjoyment.
And the man's right, some old lady in Kansas has NO idea, except through Media propaganda, and will continue to write that check to the Audubon Society.
Sad. Was there this summer, and the number of places on the beach open to ORV traffic is becoming smaller and smaller.
In fact, the last time I had a 4x4 that was suitable for beach access was 2006. I finally got a 2010 Xterra this spring, and I couldn’t drive on the beach at Oregon Inlet and south of Salvo. Stupid.
There’s been beach access for decades on Hatteras. No reason there shouldn’t continue to be.
