Day 401, Fake Groups and the Destruction of the Environment

1. Day 401 at the Destroyed Nesting Area of the Charles River White Geese.

On May 28, 2011, I conducted the 401st visibility at the Destroyed Nesting Area of the Charles River White Geese.

The work on the BU Bridge which supposedly justified major destruction has been done for months now. There is a very large swath east of the BU Bridge with nothing but dirt where access was needed for repairs.

The white geese were under the big tree in the dirt created by the state bureaucrats probably through their favorite fake organization.

Traffic was heavier than would be expected on a holiday weekend.

People were friendly.

2. The technique of fake groups in destroying the environment.

A Cambridge City Manager / City Council related group in the neighborhood near Magazine Beach has announced a celebration of destruction of the environment of the Charles River.

These are the guys who claimed to be conducting a public meeting on state plans for the Charles River. They barred negative comments with flat out contempt for the very destructive reality on the banks of the Charles River. Censorship is a normal technique among the Cambridge Pols.

A related group has been running around claiming to be defending the Alewife reservation for something like 15 years. The Alewife reservation WAS an essentially virgin woodlands near the northernmost station of the subway system’s Red Line. This group has succeeded. The core part of the Alewife reservation is being destroyed.

This group is printing yet another letter in the Cambridge Chronicle bemoaning the destruction of peripheral areas of Alewife for private development. These letters have been very much non stop for perhaps 15 years.

Never, however, has this group ever condemned plans to destroy the core area. The core area is being destroyed by their friends, the Cambridge City Manager and Cambridge City Council. There has been at least one letter related to this group supporting the destruction of the core Alewife reservation.

These groups are normal in Cambridge. I have had major environmental victories. The big problem has always been these Cambridge Pol groups.

The Cambridge Pol groups fill a void. They keep people who would otherwise be activists “out of trouble.”: The groups look like they have a function which is positive. By looking like positive organizations, they encourage people to “join” and be controlled. They prevent meaningful behavior standing up to the City Manager and City Council.

People go to them because they think that the groups’ loudly proclaimed purpose is meaningful.

I have long tried to prevent the destruction this group just achieved at Alewife. The Alewife reservation should not be destroyed for flood storage because there is a very large parking lot just to the south of the reservation which could be and should be used for flood storage.

Trouble is that the Cambridge Pols are well organized. Their pitch is “Trust the City Manger, trust the City Council, How dare you expect the City Manager and City Council to behave responsibly.”

It is always impossible to tell the difference between the knaves and the fools. I do know that with the knee jerk delivery of support from the Cambridge Pols, and the constant mantra by which the Cambridge Pols loudly proclaim it is crucial to trust people not worthy of being trusted, I got outorganized.

And the Cambridge Pols have kept people chasing their tails on much less important threats while the Cambridge Pols deliver a false world to the voters.

Alewife is being destroyed.

The Cambridge Pols are celebrating the destruction of the environment on the Charles. They are fighting for the destruction of hundreds of trees on the Charles exactly as the Alewife “organizers” have been fighting for the destruction of the core Alewife reservation for perhaps 15 years.

I assume the fake Alewife organization will be next to celebrate destruction of Alewife by their friends. They will, of course, not mention that the core Alewife reservation did not have to be destroyed.

Outrageous, irresponsible? This IS the Cambridge Pols.
