CRESPOGRAM REPORT
TRASHING THE BAY FOR PROGRESS
ALL OF THESE SCHEMES SEEM LIKE GOOD IDEAS UNTIL SOMEONE REALLY STARTS LOOKING AT THEM

MARCH 2, 2012

Decades ago I first learned of the phrase, “selective inattention,” and how as we continue to live in a world that generates more and more information that tends to overwhelm us, we all start practicing “selective inattention,” when it comes to the news and information that bombards us on TV, in the newspapers and on the radio.


We all start focusing only on the issues that impact our live in a very real way, and the remainder of the information we start filtering out.


So it is, that while I had heard about the deep dredging of Biscayne Bay and the new container cargo ships that were supposedly destined for Miami’s Port once the Panama Canal was widened, I hadn’t really bothered to pay all that much attention to the issue.


On Thursday morning that changed when I got an email from Nick Ducassi, the producer of the video above.


As you can imagine, I get more than my share of emails from folks wanting me to write about one issue or another, and the idea of spending almost 10 minutes looking at a video when I was rushing to get downtown to the Miami-Dade Ethics Commission meeting didn’t seem like a good idea.


I’m happy that I decided to look at it anyhow.


It’s a well produced advocacy video that provides a lot more information in a concise manner than I expected, and in the process, raised several critical and alarming issues that should concern everyone who lives in Miami-Dade County.


I’ll leave it to you to reach your own conclusions, but I strongly urge you to take the time to look at the video. The issues are important, and the impact could be very destructive to your way of life for the next several years, if not longer.


It’s encouraging that young folks like Nick Ducassi and the team that put this video together are in Miami, and are willing to use their talents for the public good.


If you think, after looking ast the video that the issues are important, take a couple minutes to tell folks you know to link to the blog, Beached Miami,  where besides this video they have posted a video produced by the Port of Miami on their 2035 Master Plan.


This is a video that deserves to go viral!
