We think it is time to self reflect + see how each want to reach out so we make a plan to respectfully work w/skilled sensitive people that know how to edit political jargon so as a human species all tongues globally can take part as we start the dailog of 1 Universal sound science. So people understand our true energy source as a human species interdependent on a healthy balance of genetic biodiversity. Over riding all that has been fragmented allowing such toxic effects to be permitted that continue to destroy our natural habitats in every community almost on this planet.

What we have to make sure of is that dysfunctional people thatdo not abide by the enviromental + other laws that `we the people make, should not be in responsible positions.

Hav you seen `Brand new Congress, folks? This is what they are geeting great support in doing. Reaching out to community people w/skilled sensitivity to support in office.

Brand New Congress is an American political action committee formed by former staffers and supporters of the 2016 Bernie Sanders presidential campaign to elect hundreds of new Congressional representatives ... Wikipedia

Brand New Congress

Elect a Brand New Congress that works for all Americans. ... By signing up, 
I consent to receiving emails from Brand New Congress and Justice Democrats.
Especially awakening more to understand our balanced natural enhanced world is our true sustainable energy, not large alternative grids satisfying hedge fund modes. I can't go w/350.org mode.

So if interested then please email me + we will sort out whom best to do what; kareje@ictts.org

Title RE; Peace plan.

This is for people that want to work with humanity + all life w/respect, to stop people in all positions to understand that we create our own mess + now working together can understand how to hold self + others accountable as we communicate a clear understanding.

Peace, kara j lincoln

p.s. Hi Friends,

There's a writer from the Pacific Standard on-line magazine that Katy connected with, and she wrote an article on giving the environment "rights".  It's very interesting:

Rivers Win in the Fight for Non-Human Rights


Thank you Katy, Lynn, Jody + all working locally everywhere to help all understand how the natural systems are our tools to gain balance of our gentic biodiversity + link w/neighbors, to sustain our true energy source. For this is all any able person needs, thanks again for your great input!

This is all the more reaason why if each community does one's local `plan, networing in solidarity, sharing via like ecosystem/season + subject, then each can partake in creating 1 Universal Sound Science, overriding the fragmented allowing bad permits. Rather developments connecting to the earth/space + all life that sustains us.

Please read Jody's offerings;

Fortunately for us no executive order from the President of the United States can change our environmental laws.  That takes an Act of Congress. 

 

And yes, that still doesn’t mean they are safe, but last I checked the environmental regulations are still there.  We have the (1) National Environmental Policy Act, (2) the Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972; (3) the Clean Air Act; (4) the Federal Water Pollution Control Act; (5) the Endangered Species Act; (6) the Migratory Bird Act; etc, etc

 

The problem is not that we don’t have laws in place and agencies in place for protecting fish, oysters, clams, crabs, birds, etc, and their habitat. 

 

The problem is who is enforcing and defending those laws and rights?  Everyone, including agency personnel, tends to cave to the money, high dollar lawyers and industry consultants.

 

When 5 or less people are showing up to County hearings and providing substantive testimony while industry backed environmental experts and consultants are presenting detailed reports to the County showing projects like the Pacific Connector will not harm the oysters in Haynes Inlet and in fact will help them to thrive there.  Someone has to make some kind of effort to counter that wrong information.  When that is done, we have proven you can win against these guys.  The problem is there is not enough people, resources and true experts that are doing that BEFORE THE DAMAGE IS DONE.  The industry considers the lawsuits AFTER THE FACT just the cost of doing business. 

 

The oysters in Haynes Inlet have no resources to really defend themselves and citizen efforts and resources speaking on their behalf only go so far.  As long as industry consultants with environmental degrees are speaking on behalf of our oysters, they are doomed.

 

There was a plan for correcting this problem that was spelled out in a report entitled “Oregon State of the Environment Report 2000.”   But just like everything else, our government has to actually do what their own reports suggest.  So far the only changes we are seeing are those that industry money is perpetuating.  

 

The Coastal Zone Management Act under Section 302 recognizes that …“(d) The habitat areas of the coastal zone, and the fish, shellfish, other living marine resources, and wildlife therein, are ecologically fragile and consequently extremely vulnerable to destruction by man's alterations.”   And also that “(e) Important ecological, cultural, historic, and esthetic values in the coastal zone which are essential to the well-being of all citizens are being irretrievably damaged or lost.”

 

The Act under Section 303 finds and declares that it is the national policy--

(1) to preserve, protect, develop, and where possible, to restore or enhance, the resources of the Nation's coastal zone for this and succeeding generations;

(2) to encourage and assist the states to exercise effectively their responsibilities in the coastal zone through the development and implementation of management programs to achieve wise use of the land and water resources of the coastal zone, giving full consideration to ecological, cultural, historic, and esthetic values as well as the needs for compatible economic development, which programs should at least provide for--

(A) the protection of natural resources, including wetlands, floodplains, estuaries, beaches, dunes, barrier islands, coral reefs, and fish and wildlife and their habitat, within the coastal zone,

(B) the management of coastal development to minimize the loss of life and property caused by improper development in flood-prone, storm surge, geological hazard, and erosion-prone areas and in areas likely to be affected by or vulnerable to sea level rise, land subsidence, and saltwater intrusion, and by the destruction of natural protective features such as beaches, dunes, wetlands, and barrier islands,

(C) the management of coastal development to improve, safeguard, and restore the quality of coastal waters, and to protect natural resources and existing uses of those waters,…

 

These laws already on the books need to be enforced.  Without enforcement they are worthless.
