  • The majority of Hawaii's citizens want it built. Don't let the minority protesters stop what we want. This is a democracy, do you protesters know what that is?

  • YOU WOULD THINK THAT WITH THAT MUCH MONEY YOU WOULD STUDY THINGS REALLY MATTER. FOR INSTANCE… LIKE HUNGER! HOW MANY BOARD MEMBERS HAS A COUNTRY THAT THEY ARE FROM THAT IS SO BAD THAT "CHILDREN" ARE AND IS DYING FROM STARVATION. THAT IS A PROBLEM! NOT BEING ABLE TO GET A CLEAR PICTURE IS A CRYBABY EXCUSE. STUDY HUMANS NOT ALIENS. HERE'S A IDEA ON A SUBJECT THAT REALLY WILL BE A BRAIN DESTROYER!!!.. FINDING A WAY TO CURE STUPIDITY, IGNORANCE AND MOST OF ALLLLLLL…… GREED!!!! LEAVE THE ALIENS ALONE!! THEY NOT BOTHERING US.

  • # WASTE OF MONEY, MATERIALS, RESOURCES & TIME…….& CLUTTERS UP THE MOUNTAIN, & ULTIMATELY A FUTILE man made Science project. # JESUS CHRIST IS RETURNING TO EARTH …IN POWER, GREAT GLORY , & JUDGEMENT!!! *GOD WILL NOT ALLOW SINFUL mortal man To Live on Any Other Planet. # BETTER TO BE FOCUSED ON REPENTANCE OF YOUR SINS, & SURRENDER YOUR REBELLIOUS human nature TO THE ONE SOVEREIGN GOD OF THE UNIVERSE…BECAUSE HE IS RETURNING SOON IN JUDGEMENT!!!

  • How would you feel if someone tore your church down and built something on it? Science-discovery/destruction?

  • Polynesians found these islands by looking at the stars. Now your going to cry about a telescope that is tiny on a Giant mountain That can benefit the whole human race. Think bigger than that bible you got from the same people who took your land. Sorry

  • You can't live on other planets so get over it. they sound sooo stupid when they say we will go to other planets there are millions of people on Earth and we all can't fit in a stupid Space Ship that mountain has fresh water and they wanna destroy it with a nuclear telescope when they say we are running out of water scientist are the most stupid people on Earth. How much would it cost the world to go to space hmmm stupid scientist think they are so smart.

  • I bet you if they paid these PROTESTERS money they wouldn't be against the TMT. Most of them live at beaches and parks in vans and tents. Come on Ige! Pay these poor people!

  • These outsiders will never understand how we as polynesian people preserve things and places or ever understand why and how we keep the culture

  • I don't need a telescope to see the stars & planets..
    I can see the stars fine from where I live & sometimes those stars and planets seen closer. ** $UCH BULL $HIT COMING FROM FORK TONGUES $

  • It could destroy life on earth. The holy grail of the world most active volcanoes is the sister mountain to mauna kea and ahe has been firing for quite a whike now. Why would you build something so big that needs to go down 30 stories possibly disturbing the water plate on a active hotspot. The ring of fire effects the entire pacific rim. Be smarter.

  • If Hawai'i never existed are these people telling me that there would be no other place on earth to build a telescope? Because it seems like people think that this is the only option. But in reality this is about respect and not about science. If they let TMT be built then there will never be any way to stop them from completely taking over all our islands. Our nation and land was illegally taken. It's our home and we dont want it there. The fact that people promote the abuse of stolen land, is despicable. They dont want to take down the ones that are decomissioned because of history. But what about OUR HISTORY? it's ok to destroy OUR history for the sake of theirs? That's insensitive to us as a whole and disingenuous to our respect to the land. Now look at O'ahu. It is completely unsustainable because of the same mentality of "oh what 1 more building gonna hurt", "what's another city gonna hurt"? Do you people not see what has happened. O'ahu is completely unsustainable. We rely on importation of good because all the farmland that was once use to keep our people sustained and self sufficient has been taken away for consumer commodities that in 200 years has taken away our power and ability to take care of ourselves. We dont want this happening to ALL of our land. And if this telescope is build then there is nothing stopping people from destroying it all. We kept our people sustained for 1000 years. And in only 200 years after western colonization we are now at a point that the 1 million people on O'ahu would die if importation stopped. If that's not a red flag then you are blinded by greedy multinational corporate conglomerates that are just using all of you. As humans it is our job to use the land and be sustainable. This system currently is not. Were arent just fighting a telescope, this is about the integrity of our entire home and land. Much bigger than a telescope. If you cant understand that then you have no culture and have no sustainability. If you had those things you would agree with what I'm saying. One day technology will be so good that you won't need specific places to put a telescope because you will be putting them in space. Wait till then and be patient. Stop railroading our culture for you impatience.

  • Looks like telescope is more important then humans…….fuck astronmerbitches ……polynesian pride
