Cambridge Machine may have ensured the destruction of the Alewife Reservation after 15 years of lying that they are defending it.

Yesterday, at http://charlesriverwhitegeeseblog.blogspot.com/2013/02/cambridge-ma-usa-dcr-and-cambridge.html, I reported on a meeting which has since been held by the Cambridge Conservation Commission in Cambridge, MA, USA.

I made a serious mistake in that report. The most serious possible mistake when dealing with the Cambridge Machine is to assume they would never stoop that low.

The project under consideration was not a repeat of the project in the parking lot for which I provided a photo.

The project is the next phase, occupying perhaps a third of the long, extended parking lot which reaches to the east from the parking lot in the photo.

This project, if it goes forward without meaningful flood protection, and if both of the other two projects go forward without meaningful flood protection, ensures destruction of the, until 2011, untouched Alewife Reservation for meaningful flood protection.

The game is that a really rotten Cambridge City Council needs to join with at least two these projects to provide needed flood protection for North Cambridge, or they will destroy the Alewife reservation and kill pretty much all its animals.

The Cambridge Machine has invested 15 years in lying that they are protecting Alewife by telling people to look at everything except what counts.

They are succeeding in an accomplishment about as lot as is possible.
