I actually toured part of that greenbelt. Sounded like a good idea in 90’s.

By the way the comment you left on my blog was very inappropriate. You got yourself one B.A and you claim to know too much. All I can tell you that I have few more degrees than you at higher level and did extensive and intensive research in the environmental field. Life is lot more complex my friend than some will like us to believe with their half-cocked theories.

I'd rather be put down than praised by someone who thinks evolution is a "half-cocked theory".
