2/17/2022 – SDA Response to Navy’s Noise Study Monitoring Report

10/12/2021 – Federal Magistrate Report and Recommendation

“Here, despite a gargantuan administrative record, covering nearly 200,000 pages of studies, reports, comments, and the like, the Navy selected methods of evaluating the data that supported its goal of increasing Growler operations. The Navy did this at the expense of the public and the environment, turning a blind eye to data that would not support this intended result. Or, to borrow the words of noted sports analyst Vin Scully, the Navy appears to have used certain statistics ‘much like a drunk uses a lamppost: for support, not illumination.'”

Sustainable Economy Collaborative Report – In 2016 a diverse group of residents of Island County, Washington, with both civilian and military backgrounds, came together to investigate the opportunities and obstacles to building a thriving, just, and sustainable local economy. The SEC proudly presents Michael Shuman’s answers to the  questions for which there are available data and analysis tools. We hope this study opens an important conversation in Island County and the State about the costs and benefits of brittle dependency on the military for our prosperity and stimulates debate and further research so we can steadily and rationally make our local economies more diverse, healthy, prosperous, and resilient.
