It appears that the International Drive completion has been hit with a type of ecoterrorism by two environmental groups opposed to the project.
As we reported over the weekend, the Coastal Conservation League and South Carolina Wildlife Federation appealed the SCDHEC decision to issue permits for the project at the last possible hour.
This attempt of these two groups to put another obstacle in the way of the International Drive project, which is much needed for traffic relief in the Carolina Forest area, appears to be for no other reason than to further delay, delay, delay.
Consider the following definitions from the Merriam Webster Dictionary:
Ecoterrorism is defined as sabotage intended to hinder activities that are considered damaging to the environment.
Sabotage is defined as a deliberate action aimed at weakening a polity or corporation through subversion, obstruction, disruption, or destruction.
While the form of ecoterrorism we are talking about is not violent, hindering the building (activities) of International Drive by obstruction through the appeal and possibly court process seems to easily fall within the definitions.
