The Damage Done to the Environment by Barack Obama and his fanatical Czars is unknown to most people and almost always based on false science and contrived dangers to some endangered or sacred fish or insect.
It was junk science and the "by any means" Agenda 21 movement that became the catalyst for the creation of ESIPRI as we fought against burdensome and unconstitutional shoreline and riparian restrictions here in Western Washington State. The allied forces of the Olympic Stewardship Foundation and the Citizens Alliance for Property Rights (CAPR)were fighting a good fight, but losing ground to false science and the fanatical environmentalism supported by our tax dollars thorough the EPA and individual departments of ecology. This assault on our environment, our constitutional rights and our common sense will continue to succeed unless we educate more people and get them involved.
To all who are following this or other threads please understand how valuable a service the folks at ESIPRI are doing on your behalf. It is no small task to take the time to disprove what agenda driven activists will accept as "Best Available Science" if it supports their objectives. We have even seen undergraduate college papers and letters to the editor enter the public record and claim factual representation. We've seen people sympathetic with the ideals of Agenda 21 can gain credibility by taking an 8 hour course on recycling or beach watching, while PhD scientists run up against a brick wall in trying to present factual scientific data to self serving politicians. Thus the need for dedicated folks like those who participate in the ESIPRI process if unbiased and independent peer review.
I know it's election season and we have just gone through a quarterly fundraiser here at FR, but any donation you can make to them would be a great help.
Marsh, I hope you will keep us informed. I have a short Agenda 21 ping list, but nothing specific to dams and rivers. If there is one you know of, please ping them to this thread and add me to any lists you have as well. Thanks
BUT WAIT ...there's more---This just came in from a friend of mine at ESIPRI
Trademark America has been working with the Siskiyou County Board of Supervisors on a formal coordination process with the Department of Interior on the Klamath Dams removal issue. On Monday, Secretary of Interior Salazar announced that instead of making and publishing a decision by March 31, he will now await Congressional approval prior to making and announcing a decision.
Since the current House of Representatives will not provide that approval, the dams are safe for now . . . unless the House reverts to Democrat control and the Republicans fail to win the Senate."
Obama’s Great Lakes czar, Cameron Davis is the head of the Alliance for the great lakes. They see dam removal as one of their top priorities.
