The Reforestation & Proforestation Not Deforestation Enviro Show

 Greetings Earthlings. We've been putting off reforestation efforts off on the show in our obsession to get folks to pay more attention to existing forests and the need to protect and preserve them and to establish more wildlands. That said, we here in the Commonwealth are at a point where reforestation efforts could be greatly advanced if certain agencies and players would be a bit more forward looking. Glen had something to say about that recently and, in keeping with our fixation on existing forests Karl Dziura and Priscilla Lynch will join us to talk about the Conway State Forests and the threat they are facing. [UPDATE: If you want to help in this struggle contact MA Sierra Club'd Forest Protection Team  email:
  lynneman@gmail.com Phone:  (978) 807-4778. As always, we will also present this week's Fool-on-the-Hill and remind him and whomever that "It's the Climate Crisis, Stupid!" Also we checkout
The Charlie Baker Good Riddance Countdown Timer and invite you into The Enviro Show Echo Chamber but first it's time for..........Revenge of the Critters! Another Gator just defending its turf (and catching a snack).

We have another repeat Fool-on-the-Hill who, like so many fools lately, is also dangerous but as dumb as a post as well. This time Sen. Ron Johnson (Repug-Wis.) was being followed by reporters asking why fake slates of electors were being run through his office in order to be handed over to Veep Pence for the January 6 vote count. In a failed effort to avoid answering their questions Johnson pretended he was on his cellphone but one reporter noticed the phone was turned off. “I’m on the phone right now,” Johnson said, pointing to the device and dismissively waving [reporter] Thorp away. “No you’re not,” Thorp replied. “I can see your phone. I can see your screen.” That's the fool part. The dangerous part is Ron Johnson's apparent involvement in seditious conspiracy. 

We're pretty sure Ron Johnson refuses to believe it but just the same "It's the Climate Crisis, Stupid!" Another sign of climate chaos is Summer becoming known as The Danger Season. "The phrase, part of a new campaign by the Union of Concerned Scientists, refers to the period from May to October marked by a drumbeat of disasters in the United States.", Grist tells us (but we know it's international). "This summer is predicted to be another menacing one, with forecasts showing hectic hurricanes and above-normal wildfire activity." Checkout the links, if you dare! The New York Times is apparently more focused on wildfires calling 2022 "A Wildfire Year" in what appears to be another one of their excellent montages. "Three million acres have already burned in the West" is the sub head. Elsewhere the Times points out the Great Salt Lake out west is drying up. "Climate change and rapid population growth are shrinking the lake, creating a bowl of toxic dust that could poison the air around Salt Lake City." Sounds like science fiction? Nah, it's a fact. Look it up!

In The Enviro Show Echo Chamber we return to the story of UMass Amherst's atrocious animal experiments that continue unabated in spite of pleas and protests. You may recall we had Neuroscientist Katherine Roe of PETA on the show last year. Recently "PETA supporters crashed a University of Massachusetts–Amherst (UMass) alumni gathering at Sunset Terrace at Chelsea Piers [in New York City], where they confronted Chancellor Kumble R. Subbaswamy to expose the school’s horrific menopause experiments on marmosets. Photos and video footage of the happening are available here." on the blog. "PETA has been contacted by numerous UMass alumni and donors concerned about the school’s animal welfare violations. The university has been cited by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for severely burning an animal on a heating pad as he was recovering from surgery, failing to alert an attending veterinarian to sick animals, and permitting a monkey to escape and injuring the animal’s tail during recapture."  It gets worse but we will spare you the gruesome details. You can go here to PETA.org or follow them on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.  And This: speaking of atrocious, the corporados at FirstLight, owners of the diabolical Northfield Mt. Pump Station are doing some serious greenwashing in WMass these days, awarding students grants for climate change projects while simultaneously pawning themselves off as environmentally conscious purveyors of clean renewable energy. Soooooo, with that in mind it's time for........

Breaking News!  This just in!! This year's Enviro Show Gross Greenwashing Award goes to......envelope please......FirstLight Power!  [insert fake applause here].

 

Now it's time for....... The Charlie Baker Good Riddance Countdown Timer!
 

 

......and a few choice words from Glen 😏

 

How about an Enviro Show Quote of the Week for some inspiration?

Celebrate the Wild Enviro Show


Greetings Earthlings. This week we help celebrate 20 years of Wild on the 20th anniversary of The Northeast Wilderness Trust with Sophi Veltrop, Outreach Manager of the Trust. These folks are truly wild and so is the land they protect. [UPDATE: INTERVIEW HERE ] And speaking of wild, how about we check out this week's Fool-on-the-Hill and see if we're Abidin' with Biden or not? Also, we will take you along as we remind whomever is not paying attention that "It's the Climate Crisis, Stupid!" But first it's time for..........Revenge of the Critters! Do not walk your dogs by the ponds in Florida, OK?

Time to shake our heads in amazement once again as we encounter yet another Fool-on-the-Hill. Yes, it is U.S. Rep. Billy Long (Repugnican- MO) who apparently blames mass shootings on......... abortion? We know these seditious MAGA Repugs have a limited grasp on reality but really? Abortion?? If these guys are so concerned about senseless killings how about voting for sensible gun reforms that will actually reduce the killing?

Since we're on about senseless, how about those who avoid dealing with climate chaos? How many times must we remind them "It's the Climate Crisis, Stupid!"  Science is pretty much in agreement that the massive drought out West is mostly due to climate change but how about this headline: "How Bad Is the Western Drought? Worst in 12 Centuries.."  OK, why stop there with headlines. Checkout this one: "As Earth’s temperature rises, Massachusetts residents’ sense of urgency on climate change declines"  The jist of this story is we have too many crisis to pick from and unlike COVID and mass shootings, the climate crisis isn't in your face everyday. Before you through your hands up and step away from your device you should know "New satellite data shows that in many coastal cities around the world, land is subsiding even faster than sea level is rising."  Soooo, if your inland......no worries! (kidding).

 

Ready for our Charlie Baker Good Riddance Countdown Timer? 


We guess Glen sure is but what's he gonna do in the Baystate when he doesn't have Charlie to kick around anymore? 


It looks like we have a 50/50 split when it comes to Abidin' with Biden this week. On the down side is this, according to Build Back Better Fossil Free: "Biden is breaking his promise to end new oil and gas leasing on public lands and waters -- again. On June 14, the Bureau of Land Management will hold its first public lands lease sale in Nevada. Between June 14 and June 28, BLM will auction off nearly 150,000 acres of public lands accross the West." And yet, on June 6 the White House announced that "Historic Actions Include Authorizing Defense Production Act to Lower Energy Costs, Strengthen Power Grid, and Create Good-Paying Jobs".   Read the fine print and decide, are you Abidin' with Biden or is The Prez Backslidin'?


 Time for an Enviro Show Quote of the Week:

“Something will have gone out of us as a people if we ever let the remaining wilderness be destroyed ... We simply need that wild country available to us, even if we never do more than drive to its edge and look in.”
Wallace Stegner  


Before we move on to our interview with Sophie let's have a look at The Enviro Show Echo Chamber and forest protection efforts in Vermont. Northeast  Wildeness Trust is doing good work up there while Gov. Scott is doing.....not so much. Seven Days tells us, "the governor rejected H.606, which would have required the state to have a plan to conserve 30 percent of its land and waters by 2030, in line with President Joe Biden’s initiative to mitigate climate change and declines in biodiversity. The bill would have gone even further and required 50 percent of the state’s land to be conserved by 2050." Maybe the Green Mountain State won't be all that green by 2050?  And This: How about a A Hike through Crane Ledge Woods    ?


After our conversation with Sophie we go to our Bus Stop Billboard:

Thursday nights in June for our Justice in June: Connecting Impacted Communities Series. All events begin at 7PM ET. This is your opportunity to learn more about the on-the-ground effects of biomass. You’ll hear directly from environmental justice leaders and the community members who are suffering the health and economic impacts of the wood pellet biomass industry. All events in this series are FREE.  Register to attend this free online event. https://bit.ly/3yOf4ci 


Sunday June 26, 1 to 4pm.  Pine Barrens Walk Carver, Plymouth, Carver, MA.

Monday June 27, 7:00 pm.   Fitchburg Forest Forum. The Fitchburg Conservation Commission is hosting the event at City Hall, 718 Main St, Fitchburg, MA 01420 after discovering that in Fitchburg and in neighboring towns, there has been a sharp increase in the number of privately-owned forest tracts being logged, due probably to high current timber prices, aggressive marketing by foresters and loggers, and elevated land values, as well as industrial solar. Dr. Susan Masino of Trinity College is one of the speakers.  Contact: Ralph Baker ralphsbaker27@gmail.com   


Monday June 27, 7 to 8:30pm.  Climate Action Now Monthly Gathering on Zoom. See the newsletter to get the Zoom registration link. 


Thursday June 30, Noon.  New England's National Forests and what you can do to save them. Join us for a special webinar featuring regional experts where we'll explore threats to the White and Green Mountain National Forests, our only national forests in New England, to learn how you can help protect them. Protecting these forests will help our climate, promote biodiversity and support Indigenous cultural reconnection and restoration.Join us to learn more on Thursday, June 30 at 12 p.m. Eastern.


 



That's it for now Enviro Show listeners. We probably don't have to remind you to listen to your Mother, right?

Seeing the Forest & the Trees Enviro Show

Greeting Earthlings. There's a lot going on in terms of forest protection as well as efforts to protect trees in other places, maybe even near your place. Aalana Feaster joins us to discuss the Morton Street Tree Canopy, "one of only a few unprotected natural assets left in the City of Boston". Also, Michael Kellett of Restore the North Woods returns to the show as does Janet Sinclair who wrote much of the former H.912 (now listed as H.4784 Register your support HERE!) An Relative to forest protection". [UPDATE: Hear interviews HERE ] As always, we will also bring you along (perhaps against your own will?) to meet this week's Fool-on-the-Hill and to see if we are Abidin' with Biden, as well as checking out our Charlie Baker Good Riddance Countdown Timer. Additionally, we will remind anyone who isn't paying attention that "It's the Climate Crisis, Stupid!" but first it's time for..........Revenge of the Critters! Rusty Crayfish go after swimmers in turf war!

This week's Fool-on-the-Hill is yet another dangerous fool bent on overthrowing our federal government. It is Rep. Barry Loudermilk (Repug-Ga.), who apparently led a Capitol MAGA recon tour the day before the deadly insurrection on the U.S. Capitol. We guess Barry isn't too swift, at first he denied the accusation filed by Representative Mikie Sherrill of New Jersey, who alleged that she saw some of her colleagues leading "reconnaissance" tours in the Capitol. Then Barry went on the offense and called for an ethics investigation against Sherrill. "My Republican colleagues and I will not sit by while Democrats accuse their colleagues of treason for political gain. This type of conduct must not be tolerated," he wrote, urging the House Ethics Committee to "take quick and decisive action to ensure this never happens again." However, the House select committee investigating the January 6 insurrection said it has evidence that GOP Rep. Barry Loudermilk led a tour of the US Capitol complex the day before pro-Trump rioters stormed the building. We'll see if Loudermilk shows up for his hearing. Do fools rush in (to the U.S. Capitol) where angels fear to tread? Stay tuned! 

Speaking of fools, if your MAGA hat wearing neighbor still claims climate change is a hoax and you are sick of reminding him "It's the Climate Crisis, Stupid!" you might want to inform him that monthly average carbon dioxide levels are very likely to hit or even exceed 420 parts per million according to readings at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii. This is a new record high for human history, and very likely the highest level seen in 4.1 million to 4.5 million years. Maybe tell him that we won, we got the highest score ever!  How about this from The Atlantic, "Delhi, the world’s second-largest city, has suffered through back-to-back days of 110-degree Fahrenheit heat. And Nawabshah, Pakistan—a city of nearly 230,000 people in the country’s desert south—came within half a degree of 50 degrees Celsius (122 degrees Fahrenheit), the temperature at which the human body starts to cook."  It's not fiction folks, "It's the Climate Crisis, Stupid!"  


We are definitely NOT Abidin' with Biden if his Department of Justice tries to crush the lawsuit, Juliana v. United States, which was brought by 21 young plaintiffs in 2015 and seeks to establish a federal, constitutional right to a livable planet. If the case is successful, any federal policies that enable more fossil fuel development could be challenged as unconstitutional. Stay tuned for more on that. 


In The Enviro Show Echo Chamber the group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington tells us: "Since the insurrection, fossil fuel companies have given more than $1 million to campaigns and political groups supporting the Sedition. What ARE they thinking?? And this: An Enviro Show Blog Action Link reminding us that Monarch Butterflies are still in serious trouble.  

OK sports fans are you ready to checkout the score board on our Charlie Baker Good Riddance Countdown Timer? Here goes...

 

We imagine Glen has a few words to say on this one.

Finally, before we move on to our guests, an Enviro Show Quote of the Week seems to be in order and this repeat quote is just what we need for this show:


"A nation that destroys its soils destroys itself. Forests are the lungs of our land, purifying the air and giving fresh strength to our people."

                                                                   ― Franklin D. Roosevelt 


 After our conversation with our guests we move on to the Bus Stop Billboard:

A Smart Solar Enviro Show

Greetings Earthlings. Surely by now Enviro Show listeners know deforestation is no way to erect solar arrays, yes? Sharon Weizenbaum of Smart Solar Shutesbury & Smart Solar Western Mass joins us for a conversation on what not to do for clean renewable energy including the "We Speak for the Trees" March & Rally on May 22, 9:15am to 2pm. As always we will also bring you along to meet this week's Fool-on-the-Hill and to see and/or hear the Charlie Baker Good Riddance Countdown Timer, as well as a reminder that "It's the Climate Crisis, Stupid!" and more but first it's time for...........Revenge of the Critters! Bear break-ins in Aspen?

 

This week's Fool-on-the-Hill is back again. Yes, she's a dangerous fool to be sure, but a fool nonetheless. It's Marge again who late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel cut to a clip of Greene speaking to a reporter on Capitol Hill and saying of the Jan. 6 insurrection that left several people dead in an attempt to overthrow the presidential election, “You know what I think? I think the American people are fed up with this overdramatization of a riot that happened here at the Capitol one time.” Just one time! An insurrection, what's all the fuss? 😠

 

We know most rational people here on Planet Earth are aware but it seems most members of the GOP need to be reminded that "It's the Climate Crisis, Stupid!"  We guess the Repugs are unaware research published in the journal Science warned us runaway global warming driven by CO2 emissions has put marine life at risk?  We are, according to the study, primed for the most catastrophic mass extinction since the "Great Dying" 250 million years ago, when 90% of all ocean species were wiped out. We're pretty sure that's not Biden's fault. Sadly, Inside Climate News informs us, "In the last two weeks alone, a slew of research papers predicting horrific outcomes of biodiversity loss and mass extinction were published in major journals at an alarming pace, underscoring warnings from the scientific community that the consequences of global warming are becoming more intense and accelerating far faster than previously understood." If you're feeling strong enough to learn more go HERE.

 

Speaking of The Prez, we were truly Abidin' with Biden last week at the White House correspondents’ dinner were he roasted the Repugs and gave credit where credit is due (for the most part). We're thinking the audience might have been a bit more enthusiastic with Biden ........before THEY got roasted by Treavor. 😄  More to abide with here from NPR: "The Biden administration is restoring federal regulations that require rigorous environmental review of major infrastructure projects such as highways, pipelines and oil wells — including likely impacts on climate change and nearby communities. The longstanding reviews were scaled back by His Malignancy.   

  

OK, time to bring out our Charlie Baker Good Riddance Countdown Timer

 

Chances are Glen might have something to say about this? 

 

How about an Enviro Show Quote of the Week? You'll have to strap in to the Wayback Machine for this one

"If a man walks in the woods for love of them half of each day, he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer. But if he spends his days as a speculator, shearing off those woods and making the earth bald before her time, he is deemed an industrious and enterprising citizen."

                                                                      - Henry David Thoreau

 

Now a brief trip to The Enviro Show Echo Chamber where we echo ourselves from last week (in case you missed it) and  Smart Solar Shutesbury's eye-popping presentation on W D Cowls' scheme of deforestation-for-solar. The video runs a bit over one hour so break out the popcorn and go HERE

 

After our conversation with Sharon it's on to the Bus Stop Billboard:


Thursday, May 26, 11am-3pm. Stop the Peabody Peaker Mass Action.  Construction has started on the new gas power plant in Peabody. We can't allow things to keep moving forward with blatant disregard for our health and environment. Join us for a mass action in Peabody to tell the Baker Administration: do the health and environment studies that have never been done. We'll be making it clear that our opposition to this project continues, and we want the answers to the questions we've been asking for over a year. We're still finalizing the details of the action, but there will be lots of ways to participate! Please RSVP if you're interested in coming, and we'll follow up with more information. If you have any questions, reach out to Mireille Bejjani: mbejjani8@gmail.com 


Thursday May 26, 2pm. Join the John Muir Project for a webinar featuring a panel of independent scientists & field analysts as they discuss their work in Wildfire Ecology, Biodiversity, & Post Fire Snag Forest Habitats. REGISTER NOW: http://ow.ly/KMYB50J3eHI    


Friday May 27, 8AM.  Join Boston XR in Belmont to put an end to new fossil fuel infrastructure, big and small. We make this demand of MA municipalities because despite the vast scientific consensus on the dangers of "natural gas", local governments are continuing to invest in new fracked gas distribution pipelines and hookups, new gas-fired peaker plants, and other greenwashing solutions. According to a recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, without an immediate transition to renewable energy, humanity “will miss a brief and rapidly closing window of opportunity to secure a livable and sustainable future for all.” New research shows that methane leaks are more dangerous than previously understood, making them as damaging to the climate as coal. RSVP here for Friday's action so we can make fracked gas past tense


Tuesday June 7, 6 to 7:30pm.  DCR's Central Highlands Resource Management Plan Kickoff Public Listening Session.   Questionable plans for state forests & parks in Central & Western MA.  The public will be invited to submit comments after the meeting, with a deadline for receipt by DCR of June 28th, 2022. Comments may be submitted online at https://www.mass.gov/forms/dcr-public-comments. Please note that public
comments submitted to DCR may be posted on the DCR website in their entirety, and no information, including personal information, may be redacted.Register here:
