Mass. License plate subsidy goes to environmental destroyer.

The fake group problem in Cambridge exists in spades on the Charles River and now it is getting money which people are paying to the state to protect our environment.

The falsely named Charles River “Conservancy” has announced in its July 2011 newsletter that it is getting money from the Massachusetts Environment Trust. Quoting from its newsletter, “The Massachusetts Environmental Trust is funded through the purchase of specialty "Preserve the Trust" license plates.”

This group has run around since 2003 poisoning the eggs of as much waterfowl on the Charles River as it can get away with. It is actively fighting for the destruction of hundreds of healthy trees on the Charles River.

It conducted a “swim in” to support the bizarre environmental destruction and heartless animal abuse at Magazine Beach. Very prominent at Magazine Beach is a newly installed wall of introduced bushes blocking access between the Charles River and Magazine Beach, and blocking the swimming which it lied was being improved at Magazine Beach.

The Magazine Beach project supported by this group destroyed seven acres of grass which had survived for the better part of a century naturally. The responsible grass was replaced with sickly stuff that needs poisons to survive.

The Charles River Conservancy aggressively supports heartless animal abuse.

I have seen the Boston Conservation Commission expressing shock upon learning about this group’s wanton destructive of native vegetation protecting migrating waterfowl on the Boston side of the Charles. This group is the obvious culprit in the destruction of pretty much all ground vegetation between the BU Bridge and the BU Boathouse destroying the world of the Charles River White Geese.

The Charles River "Conservancy" cheerleads, as far as I know, pretty much every irresponsible environmental destructive project pushed by Cambridge and the state bureaucrats on the Charles River. It is the most visible pusher of an irresponsible highway to destroy parts of the Charles, its banks, its animal habitat and a very large number of trees.

Any money from the sale of environmental licence plates are going to this reprehensible group?
