Big Sugar Sells Plantation to Florida
Earlier this week, United States Sugar agreed to sell 187,000 acres just north of Everglades National Park to the State of Florida for a whopping $1.75 billion. Under the terms of the proposed deal, the plant will go out of business in six years. Florida Gov. Charlie Crist said he plans to let the chunk of land go wild, which environmentalists hope will keep the Everglades from dying of thirst. Each year, the sugar operation slurps 500,000-Olympic-size-pool’s worth of water from the Everglades, the Times reported Monday.
