A response on the destruction of the core Alewife reservation to an admission of a con game by the leader of the con game
The following has been submitted to the Cambridge Chronicle a few minutes prior to its publication in this Blog. Yesterday, September 15, 2011, the leader of the fake protective group claiming to be defending Alewife published a letter praising the destruction of the core Alewife reservation.
The following is offered as an op ed piece in defense of the core Alewife reservation, and this introductory language is part of the op ed piece.
You are reminded that the con game that the fake environmental group has been conducting has used multiple op ed pieces in its non stop diversions aimed at keeping people away from the standing up to totally unnecessary and irresponsible destruction of the core Alewife reservation by its friends until it is “too late.”
The core Alewife reservation is far more valuable than peripheral areas the fake protective group has been “protecting” against much more difficult odds than exist in the core Alewife reservation.
The core Alewife reservation is massive irreplaceable aged NATIVE trees with an irreplaceable animal population. The logging and clear cutting has already started. The main destruction will take a month and will commence in October.
Birds have been dislocated from here and from Fresh Pond to the windows of office buildings. Chipmunks, possums, rabbits, raccoons, deer and untold other excellent animals will casually be killed by massive machines totally and needlessly destroying their homes, unless they can run away from the relentless machines..
Why? For flood storage to protect against a TWO YEAR FLOOD in an area which has seen TWO FIFTY YEAR FLOODS in the past twenty years.
Directly across Cambridge Park Drive, visible from the core Alewife reservation, is a massive parking lot which could be readily be used for flood storage if Cambridge had a city council resembling the lies of environmental sainthood spouted by the Cambridge City Council.
This barren parking lot is massive and is readily takeable by eminent domain. If the Cambridge City Council were the environmental saints that their constant lies proclaim.
The flood storage that could be placed under that massive parking lot is a very large multiple of the silly TWO YEAR FLOOD protection provided by the massive and reprehensible destruction of the core Alewife reservation.
There are big differences between the destruction of the core Alewife reservation and the destruction of less valuable locations that the fake protective group has been yelling about. The key difference is in the ownership.
The less valuable locations the fake protective group has been running around in circles about is privately owned. Alewife is owned by a bunch of liars who are elected by the public, a bunch of liars who lie that they are environmental saints.
The fake protective group tells us it is ok for its friends to destroy, destroy, destroy the core Alewife reservation, but the fake protective group tells us it is inexcusable for private owners to destroy far less valuable land.
If Cambridge had a city government that resembles the lies of this environmentally irresponsible city government, that massive parking lot would be taken in a moment. Flood storage would be placed under it and development of the air rights would be coordinated with the current owners who will go forward anyway.
The most important difference is that the fake protective group has been lying itself.
The fake protective group has been telling people not to look at the important stuff, not to look at the excellent virgin forest about to be destroyed by a lying city council which claims to be environment saints. The fake protective group has been telling well intentioned people to look at everything else, to look at the long shots, look at the private property owners. Do not look at the lying city council involved in yet another totally inexcusable and wasteful piece of pork.
And the leader of the fake protective group has just admitted the con.
Gone is the praise for the irreplaceable, virgin woods.
Gone is the praise for the irreplaceable and excellent animals.
Present is outright contempt for the excellent environment being destroyed.
Do not look at what a lying city council is destroying.
Look at the beautiful pork project WE are providing.
“Reprehensible.” “Ample evidence [of] outrageous misbehavior.” The superior and appeals court were talking about Cambridge’s contempt for civil rights. These words apply to Cambridge’s contempt for our environment as well.
Shame, shame, shame, but the fake environmental saints on the Cambridge City Council have none.
