Charles River — Cambridge Common Outrage in Context

Charles River — Cambridge Common Outrage in Context

1. Introduction.

The most important thing to remember about the Cambridge Common Outrage is that it is a pittance in comparison to what Cambridge and its friends are working to destroy on the Charles River.

The second most important thing is that the real rotters are clearly exposed.  The nine (out of nine) environmentally vile members of the Cambridge City Council have nobody to hide behind, no lies that even the most determinedly stupid will believe.

No fake groups running around lying that they are defending and telling folks not to look at the coming outrage.  None of their belligerently corrupt tactics.

The Cambridge Common is squarely on the shoulders of the nine (out of nine) environmentally vile members of the Cambridge City Council.

2. What it looks like on the City of Cambridge’s map.

I have been able to find an official Cambridge map of the Harvard Square area.  I have cropped it to show Harvard Square proper and the destroyed part of the Cambridge Common, realizing that more destruction, like on Memorial Drive, is likely coming.

I have marked the map 1 through 6 to better localize this particularly

I am going to reprint photos and align the photos to the area on the map.  The most important thing to notice, however, is that the key area of destruction is the most publicly prominent part of the Cambridge Common, the entrance cacing Harvard Square.  On the map, that is point number 5.

This is my standard before picture.  It is taken from area number 5.  The pathway straight ahead is that pathway running from area 5, the entrance, to area 6, the area around the monument.  To the right is area 1 and Massachusetts Avenue.  To the left is area 3 and Garden Street.  Just barely visible to the left is the smaller monument which appears in many pictures.

This is my now current after picture.  The monument in area 6 is now highly visible.  It was formerly obscured by, horrors, excellent trees.  To the right is area 1.  Visible through area 1, NOW, is a Harvard building which formerly housed the JFK School of Government.

Notice the lamppost to the right and the now destroyed second tree.

There used to be trees straight ahead in area 4, on the corner and to the left, directly in front of the monument.  The photo is ahead of the remnants of the tree to the left in the before picture.

Here is the before picture and the couple a bit further ahead.

Look at all the trees which have been destroyed.

Closeup of some of the destroyed trees in area 3.  You can see cones but not all the outrage is marked by cones.

Repeating the map.

Looking from area 4 through area 2 at Harvard’s former JFK School.  You can see one destroyed tree straight ahead.  and to its right, one of the trees on the area 2 side which lined the entry path.  There is a cone to the far right and, to the left of the lamppost, what appears to be a stump.

Panning toward Garden Street through area 3 is the smaller monument.

To the left of the not destroyed tree is a stump without a cone and there appears to be a cone further over.  To the far left may be another destroyed tree.

Area 4, Garden Street to the right.  Area 5, the entrance, straight ahead.  The cone visible above the monument to its right is probably the destroyed first tree to the original left of the path, right at the entrance to the Cambridge Common.

This is from area 6, the main circle around the big monument.  An excellent tree destroyed straight ahead.  I am not certain what the nearer destruction cone denotes.

Giving you the original before picture again.

This is the opposite view of the before picture.  It is clear that ALL the trees lining that path have been savagely destroyed and the tree which was in the middle of area 4.  The church in the background is on the other side of the Old Burial Ground (map, below).  This was hidden before the outrage.  Look at the distance on that map.

Looking across the central plaza, you see Garden Street on the other side of three destruction cones.  The tall Harvard School of Education shows on the map.  This is Appian Way.

Panning further back, you are looking through the point on the map.  “Cambridge Common” is marked over part of this destruction area.

Two destruction cones are straight ahead, 1 stump without a destruction cone, and there is another destruction cone to the right.

Panning back to the Harvard Square Entrance (5) (on left), you can see a minimum of four destruction cones in areas 3 and 4.

Photo of the destroyed tree at the beginning, near area 5, in area 1.  The excellent tree to the right is almost certainly marked for death.

From outside the entrance.  The first two trees on the right clearly destroyed, area 1.  Everything clearly destroyed on the left.

And these folks are targeting the Charles River, lying of environmental sainthood.

Charles River — Cambridge Common Outrage, PART 2

Charles River — Cambridge Common Outrage, PART 2

On April 12, 2015, I forwarded my photos of the outrage inflicted on the Cambridge Common by nine environmentally vile Cambridge City Councilors.  This follows on the Cambridge City Council and friends destruction of 3.4 plus acres of the Alewife reservation, and the ongoing and impending outrages by the Cambridge City Council and its friends on the Charles River.

Key in all this is the massive organization in Cambridge lying of “concern” and implementing the exact opposite with non stop holier than thou lies.

Key on the Charles River is the fake group with its belligerently corrupt tactics and no meaningful support for the outrages they are TRULY fighting for in spite of loud proclamations to the contrary.

On looking at the report on Sunday, I regretted not providing a blow by blow description of the vileness.  Please note that trees without protection could be destroyed yet.

So, I am going back on selected pictures and will give you a blow by blow.  If you want the full package, please look at the blog report at:

First are the before and after pictures:

On this after picture, clearly, there have been a massive number of trees destroyed.  I am just looking at stuff I can point out in this picture.

Looking at the curve to the couples' left, I would say that they are standing to the right of the tree shown there, if it has not been destroyed.

See the lamp post to their right in both pictures.  The excellent tree behind the lamppost is one of many which has been destroyed by the vile nine.

Here is a photograph of the three closer to the plaza.

The excellent tree which was straight ahead has been destroyed (cone).  That was blocked by his body in the first photo.  To the left of the undestroyed tree left of that destruction, I can see three cone.

Here is a view from slightly to the left.  One of the excellent trees in the before picture is now a cone.  The one we just looked at can be seen straight ahead and to the right.  

The Harvard building in the background is on the opposite side of the intersection of Massachusetts Avenue and Cambridge Street.  It is the former JFK School of Government.  I am not certain as to its current use.  The jogger is on a path on the Cambridge Common destruction zone.

Note the lamppost to the left of the cone in the rear.  I would think that this was the second tree visible in the before picture, and that the stump on the far left was the third tree in the before picture.

Above, panning to the left toward Garden Street.  To the left of the not destroyed tree is a stump without out a cone and there appears to be a cone a bit further over.  To the far left may be yet another destroyed tree.

Here is another view of the same monument.  Straight ahead is the entrance from Harvard Square.  You can see a cone denoting destruction above the monument to its right.

Another angle of the same monument, from the circle around the main monument.  Two destruction cones.

Below is the obverse view of the before picture, from the central area of this part of the Cambridge Common.  In the back is the entrance to the park from which the before picture was taken.  All the trees (three) to the left of the before picture have been destroyed.  There is another tree in the middle without a cone.  Look for more at your convenience.  

True devastation of the entrance from Harvard square.  The steeple in the background is of the nearest church in Harvard Square to this outrage.

Panning the camera toward Garden Street from the central circle.  There are three destruction cones, at minimum visible.  Please excuse the variation in exposure.  I am using an iPod Touch, with a primitive camera.  Before the destruction, I did not have to worry about over exposure.  The tall building is Harvard's School of Education.

Panning further back (west) on Garden Street.  Two destruction cones.  One stump in the middle without a destruction cone, and another destruction cone visible to the right.

Panning back to the Harvard Square entrance (on left), I see a minimum of four destruction cones.

Getting another angle to the right of the original before photo.

Note all the protected trees and the excellent tree at the far right without protection.

It probably has been destroyed now.

I see a lot of other trees without protections.  Those are why I started in my last report showing unprotected trees.

There is more coming here.

There are vast numbers of targeted trees that the fake group is fighting to destroy on the Charles River.

Charles River — Cambridge Common Outrage, PART I

Charles River — Cambridge Common Outrage, PART I

It is very difficult to fully convey an environmental outrage which is probably yet to get worse.

I have today, April 12, 2015, photographed part 1 of what nine VILE Cambridge City Councilors (out of 9) have done to the Cambridge Common in the past few days.

I have no reason to believe this is the end of it.  The practice has been that trees not protected by slats are condemned by the vile nine.  I see one tree with slats in the process of being removed.  I see a lot without protections.

It is possible that all this outrage is done, for now and in this spot.

But the only thing to be certain about when it comes to the environmental destruction of the Cambridge City Council and its accomplices, is that it is highly stupid to say “They would never stoop so low.”

They keep getting lower, and lower and lower.  They have much worse plans coming either directly or through friends that they want to claim are none of their responsibility.

And the Cambridge, MA political organization has the flat out gall to yell at Olympics 2024 organizers and call the Olympics organizers environmentally dangerous.

I will start with before and after pictures of the site I have been using as the embodiment of the outrage pending on the Cambridge Common.

I will follow up with some before pictures.

After that, I will post EVERY after picture I just took.

A lot of the orange cones denote a destroyed tree.

Remember, whenever you see a Cambridge pol who tells you that that Cambridge pol or his / her organization, or his/her City Council is an “environmentalist”, laugh in his / her face, and call him / her a liar.

If they are a Cambridge pol, either they are one of the vile nine, or they are part of the vile organization which keeps the vile nine and their vile city government in office.

Before and after.  I think my first before is too close, so I am doing the close one, then further back.:
