Even under the worst global warming scenarios I don't think Las Vegas would become ocean front property.


Sad about the worker dying but assembling/disassembling scaffolding is notoriously dangerous.

Yeah, I haven't heard any predictions that sea levels are going to rise two thousand feet, LOL.

However, I did hear on the news that the worker at Echelon was wearing a safety harness while dismantling the scaffolding, but unfortunately it was attached to the piece of scaffolding that he just dismantled and tossed to the ground, and it pulled him down with it. Guess he forgot which piece he was attached to.

Those types of accidents will always happen. It gets hot, you get tired, and you make a mistake and in construction a mistake can kill you.

Echelon Delayed

Looks like the entire project is held up now...

http://www.reuters.com/article/marke...0080801?rpc=44

NEW YORK, Aug 1 (Reuters) - Casino operator Boyd Gaming Corp (BYD.N: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz) said on Friday it has decided to delay construction of its new Las Vegas Strip casino called Echelon and suspended quarterly dividends.

The company also posted lower second-quarter profit as the U.S. economic slowdown reduced gambling revenue.

The company also said it has decided to delay the construction of Echelon due to the challenging economic environment. It plans to resume construction in three or four quarters, assuming credit market conditions and economic outlook improves.

Boyd had been paying quarterly dividends of 15 cents per share.

Boyd reported net income of $21.7 million, or 25 cents a share, compared with $22.1 million, or 25 cents per share, a year earlier.

Income from continuing operations slipped to 25 cents a share in the quarter from 26 cents a share a year before.

Excluding items, earnings in the quarter were 30 cents a share, down from a year-ago 45 cents a share. (Reporting by Euan Rocha, editing by Gerald E.

In this article Boyd says they probably won't restart in 2009 and they are looking at redesigns.
