Mitigation plan for solar farm in Nevada…

So we have some interesting revelations in the Nevada Solar Farm and the information that is on the mitigation plan. First what you must know is in the past when there has been an endangered species located on a piece of land, it has been a big controversy. Usually the “save the whatever bunch” come out in droves. Yet on this issue they have been extremely quiet and extremely absent.

The Desert Tortoise is resident on the land that will be used for the solar farm. They are thriving and doing well. BUT, and here comes the BUT, if the tortoise is relocated the land can be used. Yes I said relocated. In the case of the Spotted owl this species was not relocated in order to log. All logging had to stop. The endangered species act required the logging to no longer take place in the area defined by the “scientists” of the ecology bunch.

So we see the bottom line is that the mitigation fee for a 30 year plan will be $3,000,000.00 yes million.

A mitigation action plan is usually put together by NGO’s, GO’s and public input. Did the public have much if any input to this plan? So where is and how did a national conservation area get identified?

The following is taken directly from the Regional Mitigation Strategy for the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone

 

Proposed Mitigation Actions and Locations.

The Gold Butte ACEC is preliminarily recommended as the best recipient location for regional mitigation from the Dry Lake SEZ. This ACEC is located 32 miles (51 km) east of the Dry Lake SEZ

The total cost of affecting the protection of this
ACEC for 30 years, the expected term of a solar development right-of-way, is about $9 million. The
Gold Butte ACEC is about 350,000 acres, and the cost is about $25.92 per acre. The total mitigation fee
expected to be collected for the Dry Lake SEZ if full build-out of the 3,591 developable acres in the
SEZ occurs is approximately $6.6million (see Section 2.6).
Enough for now but ask yourself how much money does it take to save a desert tortoise. How many lively hoods are changed forever so that the Kyoto agreement is complete and how much land in the US has to be taken so that other countries can have enough carbon credits? How much money does conservation really require?
In any given situation when land is involved follow the money. Follow the money and you will find an under current of money that seems endless. Look closely at the mitigation plan, study it and you will find an enormous amount of money flowing into some pockets. It is not a drip it is a flood.

A Message From Shiree Bundy Cox

A Message From Shiree Bundy Cox.

Please read Shiree Bundys message (link above)

Just another attempt to show the public that the land that someone owns is not being stewarded correctly. It is also very lame to say cattle are destroying the land. They did this to Colorado about 30 years ago. Told the public, that cattle were destroying the land. NGO’s (Nature Conservancy) purchased acres and acres of land to steward. Then 30 years later, after putting together large plots of land, they are selling 5 acre plots and operating CATTLE Ranches, with nature conservancy employees. If you purchase a plot, you get the right, to ride one of their horses, on the land. But you will have to build a Nature Conservancy approved “Green Home”.

This is not stewardship, this is, get as many real Americans off the land.

Although Contention, about What Mr. Bundy is or is not doing, is prevalent, there is an underlying agenda. He would not sell his land, for pennies on the dollar. They will now squeeze him in other ways to try and force him to sell or get off the land. If that means put him into poverty. Create an environment of stress, so be it. If he goes bankrupt, even better.  Turn people against him. Make him sound like a crazy person. Manipulate the public with into thinking that they are on the right side of the law and Mr. Bundy is not. All of this is for the greater good.

Watch out Montanans here it comes…takings

The recent controversy over the sage grouse. Yes Montana will finally feel the effects of takings. Taking land. Just like the Spotted owl and the salmon, all land that even shows an inkling of evidence, that the bird has been or is on your land, will make your land a target to take. I know first hand how the NGO’s will take this information and run with it, leaving you, the land owner, holding the bag. These organizations will use the policies against any land owner to bully, shove and kick you off of your land in order to accomplish the “greater good”.

If you are a nominal rancher/farmer you are the first target. As I said before the nominal ranch/farm is one that is under 100 acres. The environmental groups like: The Nature conservancy, The Columbia Land Trust,Wild Rockies Alliance, American Wild Lands, Clark Fork Coalitions, Wild Rockies, Five Valleys Land Trust, Montana Land Reliance, and many others. These organizations started out with good intentions yet the ultimate goal is to tell people what they can and cannot do on their own land. If you, as a land owner walk to your own drum, they will dog you and fight you with everything they have at their disposal until you give in. These organizations fight dirty, they will value you off your land (one way) they will tax you off your land (two) or they will policy and fine you off your land.

Yes these types of policies will cost you and cost you dearly.

The ultimate goal is to take everyone but the real, real big boys off the land. The world wide agenda. “Get them off their land” one way or another.

If you the land owner don’t think this will happen, go ahead jump in bed with them, Don’t complain when they come and tell you that your 200 head of cattle cannot graze on the federal land anymore. “After all you want to save the sage grouse habitat don’t you?” If this is not enough of a warning to you then you need to read principle 6, 7 and 8 of Agenda 21 from the UN Earth Summit in RIO http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rio_Declaration_on_Environment_and_Development

Agenda 21 is  the world organization method of moving people from their land in order for sustainable development. After all who gives a hoot about lifestyles and generational ownership, history, facts and the American way of life, as long as what they do is in line with the UN charter of sustainable development, sustainable resources, sustainable agriculture,sustainable biology, sustainable science, anything that meats the needs of Agenda 21

Many farmers and ranchers have had knowledge of how best to take care of the land, passed on to them by their previous generations. The different government and non government organizations need to listen to them. The one thing that keeps them from listening is the generational knowledge is never in the textbooks and it is not on the sustainable development lists. The science is different now.? Really, is it? Maybe with all the new technology  and junk science on global warming and climate change it is different but does it really work? Ask yourself what really works?

Water rights….

While we the American people have been focused on Obama Care or whatever care you call it, the ecology people have been hard at work maneuvering to take our water rights.

My husband and I always talked about the fact that none of the endangered species acts, regarding salmon, was never about the fish. The hidden agenda was controlling the water rights of the American people,

If this growing agenda and movement withing the GO’s continue, you and I will have to pay for every drop of water that flows on our lands.

The control of every drop of water is evidenced in the “Rain Tax”:

In 2010 the Obama administration’s Environmental Protection Agency ordered Maryland to reduce storm-water runoff into the Chesapeake Bay so that nitrogen levels fall 22 percent and phosphorus falls 15 percent from current amounts. The price tag: $14.8 billion.

And where do we get the $14.8 billion? By taxing so-called “impervious surfaces,” anything that prevents rain water from seeping into the earth (roofs, driveways, patios, sidewalks, etc.) thereby causing storm water run off. In other words, a rain tax.

The EPA ordered Maryland to raise the money (an unfunded mandate), Maryland ordered its 10 largest counties to raise the money (another unfunded mandate) and, now, each of those counties is putting a local rain tax in place by July 1.[via the The Gazette]:

Another move by the EPA to force different entities to control water. A move to control every drop of water all across  the country.

The state law is kind of squishy. It can be spent to build and maintain stream and wetland restoration projects. And, of course, a lot of it will go to “monitoring, inspection, enforcement, review of storm-water management plans and permit applications and mapping of impervious surfaces.” In other words, hiring more bureaucrats to administer the rain tax program.

It can also be spent on “public education and outreach” (whatever that means) and on “grants to nonprofit organizations” (i.e. to the greenies who pushed the tax through the various levels of government).

Yet the tax does not apply to government entities only private citizens, no-profits and religious properties.

This local compact is not just in your backyard, it is nationwide. This is a larger agenda from the UN. The ultimate goal is to control the people. If you control the water you control the people. We all know water is important to sustain life. Our bodies are made up of 57% water. Big business operate under different rules than you and I do. If they add the right taxes to the ecology movement can utilize the water resource anyway they want.(If it is beneficial and sustainable anything is okay).

In the meantime the government manipulates the press to focus on a single controversy so the American people do not pay attention to how property rights,  water rights, and other freedom rights are being taken away.

The untouchable subject….

I find really fascinating that not many people are paying attention let alone commenting on this subject. The subject is how the Eco (Ecology Groups) are just rounding up land all over this country and best of all using taxpayer money to do it. Oh yes everyone will tell you that all of it is not taxpayer money and yes we should take care of the planet, because after all they (?) know how to do it.

Now I ask you who is they? Why do they know how to take care of the planet better than a multi- generational farmer or rancher. Back some 30 some years ago The Nature Conservancy decided that ranchers in Colorado did not really know how to take care of the land. So, they decided that nominal ranches ( under 100 acres should be taken away and put under the conservator ship of themselves. They, meaning the Nature Conservancy and other such groups had the better education, knowledge and know how to take care of the land. They told the unsuspecting public that the cattle were destroying the land and it, needed to be put into conservation in perpetuity. This is an important point so pay attention.

Leap forward to approximately 2002 (30 some years later). I came across some information that described land you could BUY. Yes, purchase it for your own personal use, but there were stipulations to the purchase. You could buy 5 acres, you would be able to enjoy 5000 acres at your leisure. You could call down to a barn and have a horse readied for you to ride. When you were done you could return the horse to the barn and they would take care of the horse, free of charge because of course your purchased 5 acres. You could build, with the stipulation, that it was a “GREEN” approved house. You could even join in the cattle ranching enterprise if you were so inclined. Here’s the rub: The barn operations where Nature Conservancy employees, the approval for a “GREEN” house was thru Nature Conservancy and the cattle that were running the 5000 acres were owned by, yes you got it, The Nature Conservancy.

I ask you why kick the cattle ranchers off of their land, explain that the land would be saved in perpetuity and then later sell some of the land and operate a working cattle ranch on the very same land? In Perpetuity means: endless or indefinitely long duration or existence; eternity. definition from http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/perpetuity. All land that is picked up by an ecology group is taken as perpetual conservation land and is not intended for resale by said group. The group purchasing the land is after all a NON-PROFIT organization. These groups are out to save land for themselves not the people They see as a religious thing to do. They see it as their duty to take it away from you because you own it. They see it as a parental right to the planet. They also see it as a guardianship to the animals. Since animals have no human voice they will speak for them.

These groups will always tell you they will not deal with unwilling sellers. but time and time again if they get away with it they will take it however they can. There is a network of people in this country that have an unlimited supply of money that will goo to great lengths to get land into the hands of their revered group of conservators.

There is a town really it is becoming a big city in southwest Washington that successfully  implemented a tax on its people. This tax money is given to the ecology groups in the area for its own use. Whether it be for “purchasing land” or purchasing development rights or rehabilitating habitat. It is freely given to them by the local government. Some people in this same town also feel that it is their religious duty to tithe 10% of their income to the local ECO group.

No one wants to touch this. If it does not happen in my back yard it ain’t happenin’ seems to be the prevailing attitude of many. People all over the country are waking up to the government failing us why are they not waking up to the real takings of land from the people.

More to come…..
