SpaceX vs Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge & Canaveral National Seashore

Launching rockets from a National Wildlife Refuge is not a good idea. Please contact your Representatives and voice your opposition to this plan. I worked at the Kennedy Space Center, and Cape Canaveral for over 20 years, and I know that there are unused launch complexes at Cape Canaveral along ICBM Road that are available that SpaceX could use, but owner Elon Musk has stated he doesn't want to have to follow NASA's protocols. This is even after NASA has openly stated they want to work with private launch companies. NASA has maybe 50/60 years of experience launching rockets, but Elon Musk knows better... How arrogant is that? The Canaveral National Seashore, and the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge are National treasures that should not be given over too privatization. Should a rocket explode and spew rocket fuel everywhere as did the as the Delta rocket in 1997 the Mosquito lagoon and the Canaveral National Seashore will be devastated. What's next? Mining the Grand Canyon, or maybe logging the Redwood National Park and Yellowstone...
