Governor Patrick seeks transportation money for environmental destruction, including trees and animal habitat

1. Announcement by falsely named Charles River “Conservancy.”
2. Reality.

1. Announcement by falsely named Charles River “Conservancy.”

The falsely named Charles River Conservancy includes the following comment in their March 2013 newsletter. They are trying to sneak in truly outrageous destruction by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts on the Charles River through the usual lies of omission.

I have edited out irresponsible language and replaced it with responsible language noted in the brackets:


As our legislative leaders prioritize investment decisions, now is the time to let them know that their constituents [oppose environmental destruction included in the Patrick budget]. Governor Patrick's proposed bond bill includes a $2 million line-item for construction of bridge underpasses on the Charles, as well as over $24 million for the paths.


2. Reality.

The rottenness of the people fighting for destruction of our environment has reached a new low.

“Underpasses” is outrageously misleading as it is. These people have casually added the real problem as if it were an afterthought.

The game is construction of highways in the Charles River and on its banks, highly destructive to the environment and to the residential animals including the Charles River White Geese.

Additionally, the proposed highway would (and never mentioned, of course):

A. Be built under the BU Bridge and through the formerly wild Nesting Area of the Charles River White Geese, causing major harm.

B. Would destroy hundreds of excellent trees between the BU and Longfellow Bridges. Longfellow is the second bridge to the east.

The DCR has previously tried to get money to destroy these trees from Obama moneys. They lied that all the trees were diseased.

This reprehensible proposal seeks destruction in the name of paths associated with underpasses a mile or more to the west of the trees being destroyed.

Just another tactic of lying from really rotten people.
