1. Latest Sightings Reported.

Thanks to Phil Barber for catching this.

The Boston Globe has recently reported on its website, at https://www.boston.com/news/local-news/2019/07/25/state-officials-warn-of-algae-bloom-along-charles-river, that the algae infestation which last year created the public health hazard on the Charles River between the Mass. Ave. Bridge and the Boston Harbor is back.

The Boston Globe also reports at https://www.boston.com/news/local-news/2020/06/25/charles-river-toxic-algae that the algae is poisoning and highly toxic to dogs who swim in the Charles.  A lovely sounding entity has expressed concern.  Unfortunately, as is too common, this “saintly protective” organization has a record of constant refusal to recognize the great danger to the environment of their friends in the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation.

One of the biggest subsidiary problems to the highly destructive DCR and Cambridge City Council, are these beautifully named organizations decrying problems and falsely claiming that these environmental destroyers are the solution RATHER THAN THE CAUSE.

2. Early Stages of the Poisons.

Here is a photo of first symptoms of the blocking of the poison drainage (see below), courtesy Phil Barber.  The colored water and the growth are, of course, algae.  The photo was taken in May 2018.

It was taken to the east of the blockage of drainage at the end nearest the Charles River.  See below for detail.

Phil got the following photos of the first known accumulations in the Charles off Magazine Beach, taken in September 2018.  Here are two groups of photos.  The first group is from September 3, 2018.

The second group is from September 17, 2018.  Note Phil's comments.

3. Documentation of Guilt.

A. Cambridge City Council.

The Cambridge City Council has funded the Charles River Poisoner to do more “environmental” work on the Charles River.  This work will lay the ground work for more of the ongoing tree destruction on the Charles River supported by the Cambridge City Council.

The latest outrage funded by the Cambridge City Council would lay the groundwork for the destruction of the excellent grove across from the MicroCenter on Memorial Drive in Cambridge.

The Charles River Destroyer, in addition to her poisoning (see below) has been the most vocal supporter of the ongoing efforts of the Cambridge City Council and the DCR to destroy 59 plus mostly excellent trees and animal habitat on Magazine Beach, located between the BU Bridge and the River Street Bridge on Memorial Drive.  For details, see the DCR plans and my related photos in my June 6, 2016 letter to the Cambridge City Council posted on the Charles River White Geese Blog at http://focrwg.com/agenda1.html.

She, using abusive Company Union tactics was key in the destruction of more than 150 mostly excellent trees, plus animal habitat, between the BU Bridge and the Longfellow Bridge.

The city council did not want to know what was going on.  Cambridge bureaucrats worked on that outrage for about a decade.  My video on that outrage is posted at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTplCCEJP7o.  The City Manager mentioned in the video was the predecessor to the current City Manager.

The video includes preparatory comments as to the Magazine Beach outrage, and includes details of the NOW IN PLANNING destruction at the Wild Area, east of the BU Bridge and the Destroyed Nesting Area of the Charles River White Geese.  Severe harm would also be inflicted on the Destroyed Nesting Area.

The Charles River White Geese are visible in the Charles River hunting for food next to the Wild Area.

In typical fraudulent behavior by the DCR, a “public hearing” was fraudulently conducted which claimed the reviewed project ended at the BU Bridge.

The slides included the Wild Area.

The Cambridge City Council did not want to know about the 150 tree destruction.  They have supported the outrages at Magazine Beach in multiple votes and praised the Wild Area destruction in a carefully worded vote clearly providing deniability.

So they have SECRETLY voted funds for outrages in the Magazine Beach destruction which, in addition to destroying trees, destroying animal habitat by adding new obstacles to the 39 year resident Charles River White Geese resuming feeding at what was their primary home most of the last 39 years.  In addition to obstacles, poisons were introduced.

B. The Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation.

About ten years ago, the state legislature destroyed the DCR’s predecessor in control of the Charles River.  Fairly loudly included in the reasons was the destructiveness of the DCR’s “planning” entity.  Another reason was the failure to meaningfully communicate the outrageous plans.

The “planning” entity of the predecessor organization moved to the DCR with their plans for destruction on the Charles River, and, with the help of Cambridge City Councils and bureaucrats have been aggressively destroying in accordance with those outrages.

It should be noted, however, that initial plans destruction on the Charles date back to 1997 when the Cambridge City Manager’s outrageous plans for destruction were first bragged about by one of the usual fake protective groups.

The extreme destruction started in the 2000's.  Key management was by then Assistant City Manager Rossi.  Rossi was promoted.  He is the City Manager so prominently mentioned in my video, link above.

Funds were unanimously provided by the destructive Cambridge City Council.

One of most prominent of the then destructive members has since retired.  She recently been seen active in the dirty tricks on the I90 rebuild as a Cambridge appointee with a lot of bad action.  She voted to close an ramp to Cambridge from Soldiers Field Road with great possible harm to Cambridge residents.  I managed to reverse that vote.  Her destructive behavior has most definitely not been limited to that.

Dishonesty has common once the “planners” got involved in the Charles.

Notable is the Starvation Wall created as part of the outrage of the 2000's.  It was sold as an improvement for swimming off Magazine Beach.  Its principal purpose was the starvation of the Charles River White Geese.

Here is a photo of the Starvation Wall from the Boston side.  Another of the fake protective groups allied with the DCR conducted a “swim in” to celebrate the way this Starvation Wall would improve swimming off the Magazine Beach Playing Fields.  The Playing Fields might as well have been 10 miles from the Charles.

The opening has a second row of introduced vegetation to prevent access to the grass which has been the food of the Charles River White Geese for most of their 39 year residence.  That has been compounded by the introduction of the poisons which have since been rerouted to the Charles to create the algae blight.  Additionally, by a recent SECRET funding vote the HIGHLY destructive Cambridge City Council unanimously added to the blockade of the entrance for the Charles River White Geese.

The latest contribution to development professionals has been voted for in SECRET funds from the Cambridge City Council.  They have removed a lot of the bushes and installed more subtle starvation techniques.

A good example of the obstacles being installed has been installed across from the Hyatt Regency Hotel destroying a favorite feeding place of the Charles River White Geese.  Looks great unless you are trying to get over it with web feet.

One good example is “White Geese of Cambridge” by Eddie Sarno, at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C2-xSIYrB5o.  He spent an overnight with them at their Destroyed Nesting Area and joined them in an overnight / dawn feeding by them at this destroyed feeding area.

C. The Charles River Poisoner.

This woman is heavily mentioned above.

fShe was distressed that there was vegetation growing in the drainage ditches created to drain off the introduced poisons.  The vegetation had the nerve to be growing WITHOUT CONTRACTORS MAKING ANY MONEY.  That could not be allowed.

The vegetation thrives on the poisons being dumped on the banks of the Charles River so it got very thick in the drainage facilities.  Naturally, the last think any of these destructive people would think of is ending the poisoning of the banks of the Charles River.

The poisons were introduced by the Cambridge City Council and the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation during the outrages of the 2000's.  Prior to that, Magazine Beach was responsibly managed for perhaps a Century.

Here is a cropped photo of the key drainage ditch taken from “From Cambridge to Boston with the DJ Inspire 1 Drone footage” posted at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sN-OmMzvHhw, minute 10.26.

At the top is the Charles River.  Below it is the Starvation Wall.  The L shaped area is the poison drainage facility.  The most important part is the portion perpendicular to the Charles River.  The first photo in this report was taken to the left of the main drainage site, at the end nearest the Charles River.  The Charles River Poisoner was described as her “kind of activist” by one former City Councilor as the only explanation I remember for one of the City Council’s SECRET votes.

There is a second drainage facility to the right (west) it feeds into this facility which drained off the accumulation in such a manner as to keep it out of the Charles River, until it was blocked by the Charles River Poisoner acting as agent for the DCR.  They used federal money during the first year of the term of president 45.

Volunteers were obtained for the work by the DCR falsely calling the project environmentally responsible.  Was using people who are not knowledgeable their only option?

The DCR is currently involved in planning for the rebuild of Interstate 90 across the river from Magazine Beach.  When I directly questioned them on their intentions of introducing poisons there as well, in light of the Algae infestation, the DCR refused to comment.  They insisted on waiting to announce plans until it would be too late to stop them.

The project on the Boston Side is managed by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation which got the bridges across the Charles when the predecessor organization was destroyed to protect the Charles from the predecessor organization.

MassDOT has commonly been the adult in the room when it has had discussions on matters of destruction for which the DCR and Cambridge were fighting.

D. The Blockage.

A lot of vegetation was pulled out of the drainage ditch in December 2017.

That vegetation was neatly placed in plastic bags and left for the City of Cambridge to take it away. 

Interestingly, one of the loudly false explanations for City Council indifference (before they resumed funds) was that this is state land.  Councilors claimed that destructiveness was none of their business (while praising the DCR’s destructive plans) They have since, in votes as SECRET as possible, spent a lot of money destroying animal habitat and trees while praising the DCR.

Here is how the Charles River Poisoner “improved” the Drainage Ditches.

This is the area perpendicular to the Charles in the above drone still.  The black area is yet more plastic deliberately blocking the drainage ditches.  At top is the Boston University campus on the Boston side of the Charles River, with the Charles River visible below it.  The Starvation Wall is lower straight ahead.

Here are some more photo from elsewhere in this orgy of destruction.

And a photo from Phil taken on September 17, 2018.

The big destruction of drainage was in December 2017.  Who knows how many more periods of algae blight and related animal poisoning will be caused?

Section 2 above gives early photos of the outrage rewarded by the Cambridge City Council with Cambridge assistance under the supervision of the DCR with funds from president 45's organization during his first year of incumbency.
