75% of the trees used in California by our endangered Monarch Butterflies are Eucalyptus, native or not. These are pretty much the last and only large canopy trees in our area, and the only ones left for large nesting raptors to use. The dangers of removing these last giants are worse than any real or percieved dangers they may pose to 'pedestrians'. According to many scholars studying the issue statewide, every remaining Eucalyptus in California is critical habitat for our fading Monarch Butterflies. More info at Save Sweet Springs Trees on FB
On Eucalyptus Removal Kerfuffle

Goldeberg needs 'more time' to gather documents that don't exist. Otters, once removed, have never been seen again.
Project over; Mark it 'F; for failure. The balance of coastal resources needs the otter.

It's simple- nature, or the oil company? Hmm?

Feral cats AND HOUSECATS LET OUTSIDE kill an estimated 500 million song birds a year. Much too high a price to pay for mouse control. Abetter idea is to provide perching for local falcons, such as the American Kestrel, who needs mouse bones to survive! Another great mouse control bird is the common crow- they catch 'em and eat 'em up! Cats are great -but do keep them inside- or at least put a bell on 'em!

Nine and Eleven
by joey racano
Nine and Eleven, nine and elevenSatan is real to believers in heaven
Gather the throngs, 'round broken charred bouldersmany wearing the twisted symbol at their shoulders
Earth, she is dying, say the meek with a tearwhile leaders proclaim 'no terrorist shall ye fear'
Swarming like hornets, the sullen-eyed slavesconverge on ground zero, desecrating its graves
A picture now grainy, lies burned on the floorshowing puppet masters Bush/Cheney just before the next war
calling their minions, the proud, dim and feeble'Welcome to black mass- take hate to the people!'

Let this creature go! None of these giant marine mammals should remain in captivity anywhere and seaworld has no right to continue this barbaric practice. what is worst of the entire situation is that our children go to see these captives and take home the message that 'it is ok' for them to be in chlorinated prisons being fed dead fish.

The time has come to shake the cobwebs out and snap to- American government, at the highest levels, was responsible or at the very least 100% complicit in the events of 9 11. Not only that, but it was done for a very specific reason- to turn America into a country where the environment takes a back seat to greed. You know, jobs jobs jobs? Using stupid religious people at the polls and brain dead 17 year olds as a murderous occupying force, 9 11 was the answer to Paul Wolfowitz's 'another Pearl Harbor' in his plan for a right-wing America, called 'Project for a New American Century'. Look it up. And stop being brainwashed- those troops you support and worship as heroes are nothing more than a private army for the oil giants. If you must mourn 9 11, make it 9 11 1973. Look up the events we caused in Chile on that date. joey racano
On September 11th Memorial Service

For the last 15 years, a small group of people who were smart enough to buy electric cars like the Toyota RAV 4 EV, have been charging them using solar panels on their home roof tops. That's right- no oil, gas, fumes, nothing, 15 years, no problems at all. The best EV (electric vehicle)was arguably the General Motors EV1, but it never really was sold, only leased, and when the leases expired, the cars were crushed. Meanwhile, 15 years later, GM is trying to hoodwink us into thinking the volt is anything other than a glorified oil burner like the rest. The Nissan Leaf is now being released, but in small numbers, despite the huge demand. Just think- all electric and all solar on all rooftops= no 4 trillion dollar wars, no gulf spill, no warming, no murcury. Ask your congressman- "Where are the electric cars?" EV1DOTorg

The physical effects of the spill have not finished manifesting themselves, and the chain of life likely suffers in ways not yet completely understood. This event is sure to be a propaganda-fest with the oil companies and their loyal enviro-sellouts cheering rah rah rah even as we ignore the white mammoth in the room; rising sea levels, unprecedented storms, flooding on the Ohio and mississippi, trillions borrowed and spent on oil-related wars, species extinction, air pollution and asthma, and the Gulf spill that has been and the Gulf spills yet to come. With electric cars and solar power waiting in the wings, this nonsensical dog and pony show will hopefully be one of the last such 'panel discussions' we shall have to endure.
