A must if you want to know what is happening to the sea life in the Pacific Ocean.
Guest essay by Eric Worrall The Climate Institute, a previously well funded climate NGO promoting support for the Paris Agreement and other climate causes, has announced it will close due to lack of money, after a failed call for philanthropic donations to keep their doors open. Climate Institute to shut due to lack of philanthropic […]
Not being against the pipeline I did have some, reservations no pun intended, about the route of the pipeline and the possible, I repeat the possible encroachment on reservation land. I think the aggressionfrom the feds upon the protesters was to much. So I kept my eye on what was happening.
The protesters were protesting an environmental possibility. The possibility of a potential pollution of water. The protesters were all up in arms that the pipeline might, I repeat, might pollute the water.
Now that the pipeline is going forth, the protesters have left the sight of a makeshift camp, of a population in the thousands. People came from all over to support the protest of this would be polluting project.
I must now express my disgust and disappointment in the protesters. Just like other long-term protests that have taken place, the aftermath is a garbage dump.
The environmental impact on the water supply is disgusting. The human waste is appalling. The tents and tarps and food waste, sleeping bags, blankets, foam pads, plastic totes, containers, styrofoam coolers, cardboard boxes of supplies for living. Large burn barrels, piles of firewood for warming tepees and cooking fires. The unused cases of canned goods and water. The list goes on….
Then as if environmental impact wasn’t bad enough as the protesters leave they set fire to this garbage.
The burning of some of this makeshift camp is a much larger impact than a pipeline that carries oil. The Alaska pipeline (Alyeska pipeline)has been in use for 40 years and has been running pretty smooth. It put 70,000 people to work.http://www.alyeska-pipe.com/TAPS/HistoryDesignConstruction
You make the call but my take is that this was and example of serious hypocrisy!!??
I do beleive the indigenous people were used for someone elses agenda.
I was reading an article in a local paper about a planning conference that took place recently and I had a good laugh. Looks to me like the adults have lowered to a level of childhood dreaming.
Looks to me like planning will no longer be of the people by the people and for the people it will be “of the UN by the UN for the UN”. A neat little organization called the Project for Public Spaces, a non-profit organization that helps communities create public spaces based around the concept of “placemaking.” This organization I am sure came with strings attached (Federal money) and a mandate to follow the procedures and guidelines laid out. This all fits in with social engineering and changing the way people think about our government officials and what they actually do.
These nice feel good measure might include reclaimed chalkboards to put into a park. Other feel good ideas that actually have been implemented are, public art, community gardens, bike lanes, etc.
City planning has always been done top down: they announce to the public what they will do, then implement the project. This has been called the “DAD” approach (decide, announce,defend). But with e the new concept it will be “POP” what the people want (public owns project).
This could include experimenting to see what the public likes. Like a temporary park, for instance, if the people do not like it then scrap it. Put up art and see again, oops maybe not take it down. Little events (of some sort) maybe again the people don’t like it. Now how much money has been spent on trial and error? But according to the “Project for Public Spaces” This is a better way of planning.
But if you do not like it you will be outcast, looked down upon, called ungrateful and maybe even “Deplorable”
In a well thought out piece, we learn that Obama has eyes on the Arctic. Of course, to remove any opportunity for oil and gas exploration and adding to the larder of government controlled land and …
Thank you to all who have fallowed me and continue to pass on the information that I have written about. Please be safe tonight and have a HAPPY and SAFE NEW YEAR!
We now have a perfect example again of taking land at any cost. Obama has, by the stroke of a pen taken large swaths of land for a national monument. If this isn’t enough the feds make a point to take land that has been involved in a controversy with the people. The feds did not like the fact that they had to back down so, after enough time has passed and the American people have forgotten all about it. The feds hate to lose, so they stomp their proverbial feet and abuse their power.
The feds had to back off from a land taking, bullying issue and they are like a bully on the play ground. They did not get their own way so they take a different strategy to take the land anyway. They couldn’t take it by buying it, they couldn’t take it by fining the owner, they couldn’t take it by damaging property, they couldn’t take it by force so they use the pen of the white house to take it.
You may say they did not take the land that was privately owned, that may or may not be true! But, by making the property adjacent to the land will mean that the property owner will be put under an exorbitant amount of restriction as to what they will be able to do on the land. If any of the restrictions are violated, even if the restriction goes completely against common sense and constitutional right, fines will be imposed up to and including federal jail time.
We have already seen the federal over reach with the Oregon gentlemen ( Mr Hammond who sits in federal prison). Mr Hammond would not be bullied, he would not sell, he sucked it up and paid fines and still ended up in federal prison. These people know that if they wait out Mrs. Hammond and wait till she is financial troubled or becomes elderly enough to go into a nursing home they will swoop in and take the land. They hope the same thing will happen with the Bundy ranch.
Everyone says “oh they can’t do that” or ” that wouldn’t happen” or even still “why would they do that”.
Those that say these things are in the dark, they are gullible sheeple. They will believe anything the feds tell them.
All over the country as well as the world the land grabs have been going on unchecked and unabated. As long as a fantasy football season is in play there is no one to stop this bunch from implementing Agenda 21 (now known as Agenda 30).
The following articles include eminent domain, and other methods of takings…
