Boston.com glorifies people key in the destruction of Alewife
For months, Boston.com has posted on its Cambridge page a photo of wild birds nesting on a building next to Fresh Pond Reservation in Cambridge. Boston.com is the on line version of the Boston Globe.
Boston.com has never bothered to ask why wild animals are nesting on a building next to Fresh Pond in Cambridge.
The obvious answer is massive environmental destruction at Fresh Pond by Cambridge and its friends.
Now, the people who were key in the destruction of the core Alewife reservation are playing the usual con game, and Boston.com is celebrating their con game just as Boston.com is celebrating the homelessness of wild birds who belong at Fresh Pond. It is posted at http://www.boston.com/yourtown/news/cambridge/2011/12/celebrating_the_solstice_at_al.html.
The “Friends of Alewife Reservation,” the fake group more responsible for the destruction of the core Alewife reservation than anybody else, have had a party to give people the wrong impression about them, the impression that they are a responsible group and pro environment.
The photo is striking. I am not positive, but I think that, in the background is the remnants of trees hovering over the strip mine they helped create in place of acres of excellent trees and animals.
This was, of course for “flood protection.” The area needs protection from 50 year storms at minimum. The area has seen two 50 years storms in the past twenty years.
Their destruction will protect against 2 year storms. And across CambridgePark Drive is an excellent, massive parking lot which can readily be converted to protect against 50 year storms.
So the fake group is celebrating. And Boston.com helps their celebration.
Merry Christmas, but remember all the excellent environment needlessly destroyed and the beautiful animals needless and heartlessly abused and killed. And Boston.com glorifying destroyers.
