KlamathmapGreen Screen Report

The Department of Interior is misleading the public and purging scientists who don’t go along with an increasingly radical green agenda. Eight government scientists were recently fired or reassigned after voicing concerns to their superiors about faulty environmental science used for policy decisions. Which begs the question, “Are some government agencies manipulating science to advance political agendas?”

Rural America has long been a target of environmentalists. Government agencies such as the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and the DOI (Department of Interior) have been hijacked by extreme elements of environmentalism and rural America is feeling the heat. When environmental protocol is pitted against the welfare of a rural community, these agencies almost exclusively side with the environmental cause, and adverse consequences to the human element are considered last, if at all.

DOI has engaged in an aggressive crusade to obstruct and undermine the use of natural resources, restrict human access to public lands, and increase its influence over private property. Decisions made by the agency are presumed to be based on sound scientific analysis, but often times policy is driving the science, rather than science driving environmental policy. This has led to harmful decisions and a violation of the public trust.

According to the DOI the premise for Klamath River dams removal is to restore Coho salmon spawning habitat above the dams even though there is no conclusive evidence the Coho were native to the area. Official DOI documents reveal scientific concerns that dam removal may, in fact, result in species decline based on millions of tons of toxic sediment build up behind the dams that will make its way to the ocean. Water temperature increases without the dams could also negatively impact the salmon. These studies were ignored. Concerns about the human toll and impact to local Klamath Basin communities were also brushed aside. Those most interested in the well-being of the environment they live and work in, were given a backseat to special interests thousands of miles away.

The Klamath hydroelectric dams provide clean inexpensive energy to thousands of local residents who will be forced to pay much higher premiums if the dams are removed because California has strict new laws for use of renewable energy. The town of Happy Camp sits on the banks of the Klamath River and could be wiped out with seasonal flooding without the dams. Once Coho salmon are introduced into the upper Klamath, farmers and ranchers will be faced with water use restrictions and invasive government regulation of private land. The economic impact will be devastating, property values will depreciate and the agriculture community, often operating on slim profit margins, will be subjected to the fate of the once vibrant logging industry which fell victim to the spotted owl crusades.

    Then you need some help from the ‘friends’ I told you about.

    Right now, Oathkeepers, and Constitutional Sheriffs are going to Nevada to try to help.

    If you watch the Tea Party sites, they will keep you informed with up-to- the minute stuff.

    I called the NV Governor’s office to complain. They had a recording that said: Press 1 for the Bundy situation. Press 2 for everything else.
    Naturally, I pressed 2 to get a live person. I told her what I thought of the situation. I am never crude, but she hung up on me anyway.

    I intend to call them every hour on the hour.

    I invite everybody on this site to do the same.

  2. They are using the same excuse in Nevada as here. Bundy is face to face with a tortoise that is being used to steal his rights. The sucker fish was and is being used as an excuse to steal ranchers’ water and land in Oregon, the government was trying to exterminate it as a pest but it was so hardy that efforts to eradicate it failed.

    Barbara:

    As you know, they are running people off their land across the country.

    They are trying now, as we speak, to run a rancher off his property cuz of a ‘turtle’ in Nevada.

    Well, there are about 30 protesters out there; 2 or 3 got tasered, BUT, were successful in running the BLM off.

    Here’s what’s key: the militia stood in the background, armed.

    I know you’re sensitive about this issue, but the time may come when you will have to fight for your land.

    Please see this video.

    OR, if the stupid URL doesn’t work (my eyes are bad), put into Youtube exactly: Ranch Riot!! Bundy Ranch Protesters Tasered by Federal Agents….

    If you have to moderate this Barbara, fine. But at least read it for yourself.

    Do you know who is hot on this topic? The Tea Party. The Tea Party is ALL OVER THIS ISSUE all across this country.

    They’ve been putting out videos on this for the last couple days.

    Don’t be afraid to contact your Tea Party, or your militia.

    If you had a private PM, I would’ve contacted you there, but I don’t see one.

    Do you think ‘they’ are reading this? Probably. But ‘they’ are reading the Tea Party sites too, but that doesn’t stop the Tea Party.

    They are a resource Barbara; a valuable one.

    Are the people of this country going to just lay down for this?

  4. No, the dams were not there from the beginning of time. Neither were cars, planes, or any technological advances that we use now. So, if you really want to play this game and get back to how it was in the beginning, then you go first. Here are some things that you can do, personally:

    1. Get rid of your car and walk, or ride a horse, but I assume that you also think riding horses is unnatural too. After all, you have to feed them and take care of them, and if you are serious about everything going back to nature, then the horses must be set free also.

    2. Forage for all of your food, even in winter. Storing food is most likely unnatural too unless you are a squirrel.

    3. Only use water if a fish cannot be found anywhere near it. If there is even one fish, that fish takes precedence over you. Suck it up.

    4. Get rid of all unnatural trappings such as your house, computer, phone, clothing, Big Pharma meds, and anything that cannot be found in nature.

    When you do all of these things, then you can talk to me about returning the land to nature minus the dams that supply hydroelectricity for the community and irrigation water for farmers, ranchers, and all others who have worked to build this community up and provide food, clothing, fodder and a livelihood for the people around them.

    In addition, the massive geo-engineered drought in California and the Pacific Northwest will guarantee that in the very near future water will be monitored and restricted putting small farms out of business and moving people out of rural areas. I have every expectation based on spring precip totals that the summer of 2014 will be the fifth consecutive summer where regional thunderstorms will not occur due to geo-engineering.

    The dam was not there from the beginning of time – it does not belong there; how hard is that to understand.

  7. Abe says:

    Agenda 21 despotism is starting. Funny how them cerebral leprechauns in DC can’t stop talking about bullying!

  8. Tina says:

    Barb,

    I’m down here in Southern California. If you can think of anything I can do, let me know.

    I can make calls for you (?) Whatever.

  9. At this point, I need more information, and will get it. I intend to shout as loudly as I can and make as big a stink as I can about it. This is a complete takeover.

    This is galling. What’s the next step?
