ENVIRONMENTALISTS SET AGENDA

Environmentalists set agenda

Mike Sunnucks   The Business Journal

A newly formed coalition of environmental and preservation groups has released its political agenda for 2003.

The Arizona Conservation Alliance wants to protect state funding for environmental programs such as land preservation as well as air and water quality.

The group also wants gasoline tax revenue to be used for transit systems, not just roads and highways; to preserve the Clean Elections public campaign financing; and for border and law enforcement agencies to be more sensitive of the environmental damage caused by off-road vehicles, road and wall construction and intense night lighting.

The alliance includes environmental and conservation groups such as the Arizona League of Conservation Voters, Nature Conservancy of Arizona, the Phoenix Zoo, the Grand Canyon National Park Foundation and the Sierra Club. It also includes the Border Action Network — a pro-immigration group critical of U.S. policies towards Mexico.

For more information on the new coalition, visit its Web site at http://www.azlcvedfund.org.

I'm sure that if any of them don't, the bureaucrats at the EPA can find some way to come up with a grant program to give them some of your money to start one.

Notice that much of the agenda is concerned with maintaining funding for their own survival or their agendas.

This is a shift from the usual strategies of actively arresting development, destroying freedoms and rights and undermining American sovereignty.

I take it as a good sign and would encourage everyone to press home their attacks on the green socialists.

The Desert Foothills Land Trust has been working with Jane Hull's Agenda 21 Smart Growth folks since as far back as June1998, as shown here. Napolitano following her lead. Republican? Democrat? Does it matter?

Source

The "Growing Smarter" plan also includes several significant reforms to planning and zoning statutes for cities and counties. These include requirements that general and comprehensive plans be updated every 10 year; that rezoning be in conformity with the plans; that amendments pass with a two-thirds super-majority vote of the governing body; that open space, environmental and growth areas be part of the plans; and that development be required to pay its "fair share" toward the cost of additional public facilities or service needs.

Representatives of groups from across the state identified parcels of State Trust land they hope to preserve through the Arizona Preserve Initiative process, including P.A. Seitts of the Desert Foothills Land Trust in Cave Creek; Luther Probst of the Sonoran Institute in Tucson; and Carla of the McDowell Sonoran Land Trust in Scottsdale. Also present was Anne Coe of the Superstition Area Land Trust in Pinal County, which officially endorsed the Growing Smarter plan at the press conference. In addition, Phoenix Mayor Skip Rimsza said the funding may help the City of Phoenix to implement its comprehensive open space plan.

These are the goofballs that were spinning Daschle's deal to thin Balck Hills forests in only his own state as "ecologically sound".

It was the Sierra Club or the Wildernss Society in AZ that wrote a long, drawn-out press release stating that, due to years of logging and fire suppression, the Black Hills needs to be logged.

They think they can do a better job of logging than the pros...'course, since it isn't likely any member of an environazi group has bothered to be certified in ANY of the fields of forestry management required by law, they'll have to HIRE THOSE PROFESSIONALS ANYWAY.

Clarification: the ARIZONA chapter of either the Sierra Club or Wilderness Society wrote the pro-Daschle, logging-is-our-friend-if-WE-do-it piece.

So now they don't want to control the timber industry...they want to OWN the timber industry

Sheds a whole new...err..light on their demand that border patrol agents and law enforcement officers be more "sensitive" to the impact of "intense night light", eh?

It also includes the Border Action Network — a pro-immigration group critical of U.S. policies towards Mexico.

Living in Arizona back in the eighties was the closest thing to paradise you could get. The cost of living was relatively cheap, there were miles of wide open spaces with a pristine environment, and best of all it wasn't crowded. So it strikes me as odd an open borders group would be concerned about the environment. It seems contradictory to me.

The Arizona Conservation Alliance wants to protect state funding for environmental programs such as land preservation as well as air and water quality.

In the name of the desert box tortoise, they want to shut down all military operations on and over most of Southwest Arizona (the Barry Goldwater Range). Their stated agenda is to protect the habitat of an unknown number of tortoises. Their hidden agenda is to do what the Puerto Ricans are trying to do to Viequas. To shut down the military's live fire training. They would sacrifice the lives of our airmen in order to have a satisfied turtle.

I believe it goes deeper than that though. They want to do to the military what their hero Carter did to the CIA. Completely shackle then dismember our capability to defend ourselves. True Marxism at work. Useful idiots will support them.

Your remark about the Watermelon Green Jihadists in Arizona is right on target and applies to all of the Watermelon Green Jihadists in America when it comes to the military:

You posted: I believe it goes deeper than that though. They want to do to the military what their hero Carter did to the CIA. Completely shackle then dismember our capability to defend ourselves. True Marxism at work. Useful idiots will support them.

This is a great tie in. However it ain't just Marxism. Carter has been financed by the Opecker Princes for decades. I believe that one of these days we will seen records of massive financing by the Opecker Princes and Islamofascist Thugs like Carter's buddies in Iran and Iran connected to most of the Watermelon Green Jehadists in America posing as concerned enviralists.

These Marxist groups market themselves under different names, for their legislative needs of the day. The recently re-named "Border Action Network" shows up here joined with Environmentally "concerned" groups.

They also wrote the fabricated "Hate or Heroism" report against Civilian Border Patrols.

They were previously named SWARM (Southwest Alliance to Resist Militarization) and notice here how anti-military (anti-American) they really are.

This is from the Norman Foundation Grantee Page.

Southwest Alliance to Resist Militarization (SWARM) (Tucson, AZ) $2,000
swarmtucson@hotmail.com
Funding to support the campaign to Stop Joint Task Force 6, which utilizes Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine and National Guard personnel to "fight the war on drugs" within the United States.

Along with the name change to Border Action Network, they removed all that anti-military stuff. They make me sick.
