Negative DCR reports in the News, What Else is New?

1. Summary.
2. Vote pending in the legislature. Massive Destruction, fraudulent description.
3. The destroyed nesting area.
4. Magazine Beach.

1. Summary.

The Department of Conservation and Recreation is in the news because of mismanagement of its property condemned by a state official.

That is no surprise.

The fake group the Cambridge Machine has created on the Charles River with its non stop lies of loving Magazine Beach is specifically designed to hide the outrages and protect a really rotten friend of Cambridge from well deserved condemnation.

Nothing has been destroyed in the last day at Longfellow - Kendall. I will do a little more communication of the rot in this agency and its friends.

2. Vote pending in the legislature. Massive Destruction, fraudulent description.

Governor Patrick included in his budget destruction of hundreds of trees on Memorial Drive in Cambridge between the BU Bridge and the Longfellow Bridge on the Charles River.

This destruction fraudulently got a lot of approving signatures under the lie of “underpasses” under the next three bridges to the west.

The lying description is paths associated with those underpasses. The Massachusetts Department of Transportation, responsible for those bridges, has clearly rejected the underpasses, loudly condemning the environmental destruction.

The head of the falsely named Charles River “Conservancy” has quietly reported continued efforts in favor of her “underpasses.” The actual “underpasses” run bond authorization of $2 million or $4 million. The “paths” (bike highways) associated with those “underpasses” run $24 million. Those underpasses are terrible. The paths run six times money with their destruction of hundreds of trees.

So, in the usual lies we are faced with in these ongoing outrages, the $24 million is not mentioned, only the $2 million or $4 million.

The trees being destroyed between the Longfellow Bridge and the point where Memorial Drive splits are truly massive.

The trees in the background in the photos I have been using of the Longfellow on ramp grove give a feel for the outrage.

Before destruction.

First destruction.

The leader of the falsely named Charles River “Conservancy” has publicly cooed at this destruction.

The destruction in the proposed bond authorization includes a magnificent 104 tree grove at the Memorial Drive split, not as large as the trees to its east, but a magnificent grove. Governor Patrick’s bond authorization would destroy more than 80 of these 104 trees.

The DCR previously tried to get Obama anti-recession money to destroy the hundreds of trees Governor Patrick is now targeting for destruction. The DCR lied that all the targeted trees were sick. The lie was proven in their filing with the Cambridge Conservation Commission.

3. The destroyed nesting area.

The destroyed nesting area, with the consent of the DCR, was used for parking for months of railroad repair with parking readily available a few hundred feet away next to Memorial Drive overpass.

The DCR’s goal is to kill off all animals on the Charles River Basin. This is in their secret definition of “parkland.”

They are not doing it directly. That is would make the lies from the Cambridge Machine of the DCR’s sanctity more difficult.

So they sneak destructive attacks into whatever they can. Over the years, they have destroyed almost all of the ground vegetation between the BU Bridge and the BU Boathouse to the east of the Destroyed Nesting Area. The Cambridge City Council has a plan to fence off the connection between the Destroyed Nesting area the devegetated hillside between the Grand Junction railroad tracks and that boathouse.

The Cambridge Conservation Commission limited much of the latest damage after the fact. My praise for the CCC has been censored by the house organ Cambridge Chronicle.

Undergrowth near the tracks in the DNA was even more devastated by the parking lot use.

Here are some photos of the mess from June 23.

Here are photos taken on July 14 after the mess was cleaned up. Nature’s attempts to heal have been destroyed. The scraps in the photos above were destruction aimed at saplings. Even the saplings are gone. The mass dumping of crushed stone now dominates the area of worst vegetation destruction by the DCR and its friends over a numbers of years.

The last photo is of a plastic barrier I assume the DCR lies is "native." It fits their REAL definition of "native." It cost money and they planted it. This is the remnants of the barrier around the BU Bridge construction. That plastic barrier has in no way been removed by the DCR.

Leaving plastic in an environmentally sensitive location exactly fits the rottenness of the DCR and belies the nonstop holiness lies of the Cambridge Machine.

4. Magazine Beach.

I have gone on long enough for now. I will repeat some of prior reports, probably in the coming days. Corruption, corruption, corruption.

5. Summary.

It is always a relief to get away from the rotten situation in Cambridge, MA, USA, and see normal people reacting to the rottenness of the actors in question, rather than listen to the hypocrites of the Cambridge Machine lie of the holiness of very unholy characters.

The outrage on the Charles River started with a contract lacking proper legalities with Boston University under which Boston University accomplished the first destruction. Boston University lied for six months that they did not do it. Boston University finally bragged of the destruction after being condemned by the Cambridge Conservation Commission for their destruction. Their destruction started during the day prior to a Cambridge Conservation Commission hearing.

That destruction included the stairs which should have been used by the railroad workers to park next to Memorial Drive, and included the opening to the destroyed nesting area which is now blocked for use by the Charles River White Geese to get some food on their own in place of the starvation being inflicted by the DCR and Cambridge.

6. Contacts, Miscellaneous.

Cambridge, MA, USA city councilors:


For people listening to Boston Sierra Club endorsements of environmentally destructive members of the Cambridge City Council, you should be aware that

(1) using the world’s definition of “environmentalism,” there are no environmentally responsible members of the Cambridge City Council, and

(2) there are Cambridge Machine activists very visible and apparently very active in the Boston Sierra Club.

If you are talking to a person associated with the Boston Sierra Club, do a credibility check. Ask if they are familiar with the “Urban Ring” rapid transit proposal. This is a subway proposal designed to link the existing subway spokes. I have been working on it since 1985. Cambridge raised the project in a comment to an environmental Impact Statement in the last month or so.

If the Boston Sierra Club “expert” answers “yes,” that he / she is familiar with the Urban Ring rapid transit proposal, ask how many rail options there are. If the answer is “one,” you are getting the flat out lie put out by the City of Cambridge.

Cambridge’s flat out lie is that, of the TWO rail options, the only one that exists is the environmentally destructive streetcar option which the City of Cambridge supports. This option would be highly destructive to the environment near the Destroyed Nesting Area of the Charles River White Geese.

The reality is that THE STATE LEGISLATURE HAS SUBSIDIZED THE OTHER OPTION, the responsible Orange Line / heavy rail option, the Kenmore crossing. The state legislature has subsidized the expansion of Yawkey Station as part of the massive Fenway Park area project which has gotten recent press.

Cambridge’s nonsensical proposal would move Yawkey Station three blocks. The Cambridge proposal would not work without moving Yawkey Station. The Kenmore Crossing uses the now subsidized and being expanded Yawkey Station as part of a brilliant megastation.

You should immediately respond to such nonsense from a Sierra Club “expert” by having nothing more to do with this person. Whether the person is stupid or venal is irrelevant, the person has no credibility and is not worthy of your time.

It is frequently difficult to pin these irresponsible people down in general. The deviant behavior in my test is extreme. They are pious in their demands that, if you are politically correct and pro environment, you have to rubber stamp them. Please do not waste your time arguing about destruction they can try to wiggle around.

Turn your back on them and walk away fast.
