Cambridge, MA, USA City Council continues its belligerence / “neutrality” on their plans for irresponsible destruction on the Cambridge Common. Protect against destruction.

1. Report.

As part of the contempt for the environment which the Cambridge City Council flaunts behind lies of environmental sainthood, Cambridge, MA is in the process of destroying a number of excellent trees on the Cambridge Common.

The ENF talks about trees blocking the view.

All city councilors carrying over from last year have filthy hands on this, plus Alewife, plus the Charles River, plus Danehy Park.  In short, they are really reprehensible.  The Boston Sierra Club looks like it is controlled by the Cambridge Machine.  The Boston Sierra Club calls select members of this rotten group environmental saints.

Below are links to my past reports on this outrage.

As of Monday, June 2, the Cambridge City Council had a letter with excellent photos of part of the outrage, link below.

On Sunday, June 1, I reported details of this letter on Cambridge Cable Channel 9, my weekly Cambridge Environment Show.  The relevant part is posted on YouTube.  Link below.

I just checked the schedule for Monday’s City Council meeting.

I see no sign of decency on this or any of the other ongoing outrages.

But the Cambridge Machine and their controlled Boston Sierra Club will continue to lie of environmental sainthood.

The plans for destruction under House Bill H4009 are at

These are the official plans posted when they sought Obama moneys, lying of disease to the public.  They have been fighting to destroy these trees for 10 years.  Do not be conned.  Any deviation from these plans will be minor.

The exact citation is House Bill H4009 is Section 2C, line item 2890-7020.

The photos of trees marked for destruction on the Cambridge Common are posted in two parts:


My letter of objection to the Cambridge City Council is posted at:  The letter includes smaller reproductions of the actual photos.

The Cambridge City Clerk's Printing of my letter and the attachments far surpasses in quality my records.  It is posted at:

On June 3, 2014, I posted on YouTube my presentation of that letter, at

3. Contacts: Protect against destruction.

I have repeatedly reported on the outrages being inflicted on the Charles River and the Cambridge Common.

I included in the letter to the Cambridge City Council objecting to its imminent outrages on the Cambridge Common my objections to House Bill H4009 initiated by the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation.  This will destroy hundreds of trees between the BU Bridge and the Longfellow Bridge, and ALL such destruction is coordinated with the City of Cambridge.  Passage could be imminent.

I summarized many other ongoing and recently accomplished environmental outrages for the City Council of the City of Cambridge has filthy hands.

The imminent target of destruction is the excellent common just north of Harvard Square in Cambridge, MA, USA.

If you would like to be recorded opposing to these outrages, please send an email to  That will get your email to Donna Lopez, the City Clerk.  As part of your email, ask that your email be forwarded to the Cambridge City Council and included in their Communications for the next meeting.

Support of my letter opposing the destruction on the Cambridge Common and the destruction in H4009 concerning multiple destruction of trees and animals on the Charles River would be helpful.

Of greater value in opposing the outrages on the Charles River would be communications to state officials as follows:

Massachusetts Governor’s Office email form:

All Massachusetts Legislators’ emails:

The list of legislators’ emails is set up so that you can copy and paste them into addresses on your email, either original addressees or, better, blind copies.  Please do not miss the addendum at the beginning in which I list the local State Representative who was recently elected.

4. Tip.

The key with the Cambridge City Council is that their weakness is a very distressing and continued lie that they are pro-environment.

It is a very major weakness, but the lack of response to complaint concerning their destruction on the Cambridge Common is not encouraging.

There are four out of nine newcomers.  One might be subject to persuasion.  The balance could be possibly be embarrassed into decency.  I have major zoning victories as an environmental technique in Cambridge.  It was common to get approvals from the “conservatives.”  The “liberals” were then embarrassed into compliance with their claimed positions.

Of major importance with legislators is a widespread contempt for the Department of Conservation and Recreation and its destructiveness.  Cambridge, MA, is a distinctive entity which is in sync with the problems that the DCR embodies.
