Palm Trees, Sugar Cane and the Maine Parakeets Diminish Minnesota Moose Herd

On January 4, 2013, Pioneer Press of Minnesota carried an article by Dave Orrick about an upcoming study to take place in that state “to figure out what is killing its iconic moose of the north woods.” The article states:

Researchers suspect calves are dying at a higher rate than usual, but the most troubling trend is adult moose in their prime of life dropping dead. Moose have all but vanished from the northwestern part of the state where they once roamed.

Once again, the “ostrich” approach to a problem is being undertaken. Burying one’s head in the sand over obvious facts in order to promote other theories is commonplace in today’s new-science science of outcome-based education.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources released a report in 2011 lamenting the rapid decline of moose in that state, showing essentially a calf survival rate of 0% and not one mention in that report of what effect predators might have been having.

In 2010 the same Department of Natural Resources issued a report blaming the rapid loss of moose on global warming, also with no mention of predator effects.

So, now with head still buried in the sand, $1.6 million will be spent to radio collar moose and see if the poor ostriches in Minnesota can figure out what’s killing their moose.

Jim Beers, a retired US Fish & Wildlife Service Wildlife Biologist, commented on the article linked to above saying,

It is interesting that this study is initiated after the first public harvest (12-15% according to lowball state population estimates and more likely 8-10%) of wolves in addition to the increasing annual number of government-killed depredating wolves over the past 40 years.

Robert Fanning, one time candidate seeking the republican nomination to run for Montana governor commented:

Bobby Fithian, Executive Director of Alaska Professional Hunters assn and Board member of a very prominent citizen USFWS management committee tells me that after 50 years of compiled studies Alaska F&G concluded that 85% of all ungulate mortality is due to predation.

Will Graves, author of Wolves in Russia: Anxiety Through the Ages, also commented that:

Declining moose pop in Minn is prob due to Echinococcus g. causing large cysts in the lungs of the moose. The moose have reduced lung power and can’t run far or fight long. Also, Neospora caninum might also be playing a part in the decline.

Wolves, very present on the landscape in portions of Minnesota, which happen to coincide with the same habitat as the moose, are a known primary host of Echinococcus granulosus, that when ingested by moose can cause cysts in the lungs and other organs.

The reading of the Pioneer Press article and subsequent comments from friends and colleagues, prompted Jim Beers to craft a response letter for the newspaper. Here is a copy of that response.

WOLVES & PARAKEETS

It is worth noting that the MN DNR is launching an extensive satellite-tagging project to confirm their longstanding belief that Global Warming and definitely not wolves is responsible for the accelerating decline in moose. The facts that the moose and wolves cohabit the same habitat and that after 40 years of wolf protection and concomitant increase in both wolf numbers and their annual increases and moose that have declined at an accelerating rate simultaneously as the wolves increased at an accelerating rate are dismissed as irrelevant. Everywhere else in the Northern Hemisphere, this phenomenon is and has been recognized for what it is for centuries by scientist and layman alike.

Launching this expensive project right on the heels of the first public wolf harvest in 40 years and in the midst of the increasing government-killing of depredating wolves is a remarkable coincidence: almost as remarkable as federal wolf protection and wolf spreading programs that coincided with Roe v Wade 40-odd years ago.

Just as Roe was reputedly at first only for abortions “up to 3 months” and today is anytime, for any reason, at US government expense here and abroad, and now in federally-mandated insurance: federal wolf protection and mandates for a myriad of elusive benefits has spread nationwide and the many dangers and harms are buried in politically correct falderal from government enablers and animal rights radicals. “Rights” for a deadly and destructive predator were created as the Right to Life for humans in the womb was eliminated to please the radical’s secular religious tenets and bureaucrat’s rewards.

When I told a Maine friend that this proposed MN DNR Moose Mortality Study would, hopefully, confirm that the loss of moose was attributable to Minnesota’s loss of poplar and tamarack trees and the invasion of palm trees and sugar cane plantations; he informed me that he was aware of “peer-reviewed” findings from Maine that indicated that the parakeets in the palm trees were out-competing the moose for the remaining food, thereby assuring the ultimate demise of moose.

Garrison Keillor, are you taking notes?

Global Warming/Cooling: Lies, Ignorance, Politics or a Deliberate Plan to Screw the People?

It never ceases! What goes on outside is manipulated into some of the grandest of rip offs, con jobs and scams imaginable and yet, why are people so eager to run with the ball and spike it in the end zone when they aren’t even sure they have the right end of the field?

Before I continue, I want to thank a good friend and reader for taking the time to compile the majority of the information and links provided in this article. It for the efforts of people like him, I retain some semblance of hope for our future……or at least his.

We are but 22 days from an election where Americans will vote and certain people will be placed into political positions in order to rule over the people and take away their rights, even more. All of the hyped up lies and deception wouldn’t be complete without a good round of fear mongering as to how the environment is being destroyed by evil man and global warming or cooling, depending on who the crowd is you are trying to persuade, is still a good tactic to confuse, befuddle and scare the hell out of people with.

What is the climate of the earth doing and is what you hear and read about lying, pure ignorance, driven strictly by politics/agendas, or is it a deliberate plan laid out by very powerful people as just another means of destroying individual wealth and freedom in order to control the masses?

My answer is all of the above!

Here’s what the people get to listen to and read, that is if any care enough to pay attention:

* In Maine from the Kennebec Journal, an article on Sunday says that Maine’s winters are becoming milder. And it must be the god’s honest truth because:

The research was done by the Maine Sunday Telegram with help from the government’s National Climatic Data Center. The work was reviewed for accuracy and for comment by the National Weather Service in Gray and the state climatologist at the University of Maine in Orono.

Missing from all media accounts of “global warming” are accounts that describe what is happening GLOBALLY instead of regionally or in pockets. Some of you may recall nearly two years ago when I penned a short article about “pocket warming“. Instead of being transparent and presenting information of events within a “pocket” or region, it is much more effective to stroke a broad brush and call it global warming.

In Maine’s case here where the Kennebec Journal talks of a warming planet and winter’s are getting warmer, is this a case of a regional warming while globally average temperatures are falling? Or is it lying, ignorance, politics or part of “the plan”?

* Staying in Maine for a while longer, those who follow my rants know what I have written about the terrible management, and I use the term management loosely, of whitetail deer. But our masters at the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (MDIFW) have all the excuses, one of them being climate. From the newly crafted “Maine’s Game Plan for Deer“:

Maine’s severe winters influence deer survival and deer numbers. To survive our harsh winter conditions, deer move to dense conifer forests, most of which occur on private land.

Severe winters and the claim that Maine had two back to back severe winters that destroyed the state’s northern, eastern and western deer herd, doesn’t exactly fit into the data that the “honest to gods” government and National Weather Service provided.

You may also recall that in rebuttal to MDIFW’s claims that the loss of deer was almost completely blamed on severe winters, I provided data and graphs that showed that deer populations in Maine have been collapsing for the past 10-12 years. Have we had that many severe winters? One might be led to conclude that if bad winters are killing deer and Maine winters are getting warming, the deer population would be growing.

* In addition, if Maine’s winters are really warming, one might easily get confused if they also read another short article in the very same Kennebec Journal, written on the very same day. Sunday River Ski Resort made snow for the first time this year and that:

Dana Bullen, president and general manager, said Sunday River is committed to making snow when the temperatures make it possible.

He said the resort has opened for limited skiing before Halloween for five years in a row.

I do understand that with the growing technology of snow making, snow can be made at warmer temperatures but seriously, aren’t you just a bit mixed up over whether it’s getting warmer, getting colder or perhaps things are mostly normal?

* Let’s leave the pocket warming….errr I mean pocket cooling…..let’s just leave Maine for a moment and span the globe. A media source from Great Britain tells us that global warming stopped 16 years ago…..and they have the god’s honest truth to prove it.

* If it isn’t good enough to learn that global warming has ceased, Pajamas Media writer, “Zombie” tells readers we are heading into an ice age.

Have these two accounts disregarded the pocket warming of Maine and perhaps other places or is this just the god’s honest truth? Lies? Ignorance? Politics? a Deliberate plan?

It could be all lies in order to fulfill a purpose. Perhaps that purpose is driven by money, corruption, general greed, fear tactics to gain control over people, win votes, or any number of things in which we know that our society today believes that any means justifies the end result.

We are all guilty of ignorance at every level. Undoubtedly the news account of Maine’s warming winters, supported by the god’s honest truth, is almost never questioned and when it is, people get scoffed at and ridiculed.

The ignorance nicely plays into the hands of the lying politicians or any other group – I have environmentalists in mind – wishing to dupe the public to promote their agendas and steal money and rights from them.

* But in reality, isn’t what we are witnessing really the product of a much larger plan; a plan much of which begins with our education factories?

To support my claim, consider an opinion piece written by a biology major at Bates College in Maine. Everything he writes is garbage and yet this is what he is brainwashed to believe. This is an end result of “Outcome Based Education“; a very nice way of saying brainwashed. Consider his opening lines:

My liberal arts education at Bates College has taught me a lot about the urgent issues facing our environment and our communal well-being: The Earth’s climate is warming; species are going extinct at an unprecedented rate; and known toxins pollute the environment.

Those problems are caused by a human society that values obscene profits and luxury over a healthy environment and stable climate.

In just over 60 words this person has pretty much written the manifesto of how those wishing to control you and me intend to do it. His thoughts are pure, unadulterated garbage and yet wildly accepted within our society. Why? Because along with this indoctrination we are taught not to question. One of the things for those of you too young to know about, and I guarantee you won’t be taught about, is that what made this country the leader of the world in knowledge, production, liberty, wealth, progress, etc. was to question everything. Never be satisfied with someone’s answer until you have proven it right or wrong.

We have purposely become robots, walking about with mobile devices, brain dead, believing only what our devices tell us and never questioning or taking the time to prove it.

Before you vote, or the next time someone tells you or you read or hear about how the globe is warming and the evils of carbon dioxide are to blame, bookmark this link to a Patriot Post by Joe Bastardi.

Bastardi provide four very interesting graphs that compare temperatures globally against the amount of carbon dioxide. Another graph compares CO2 with tornadoes; another with hurricanes and a fourth the 30-year temperature averages versus the amount of carbon dioxide.

And don’t forget, it’s the god’s honest truth!

Costa Rica Bans Hunting

*Editor’s Note* – Most of the links provided for information into the background of Costa Rica’s president, Laura Chinchilla, comes from Wikipedia. Please consider this source while reading and researching the information provided.

Costa Rica, located in Central America, has become the first country in the Americas to ban hunting. According to one news report, “President Laura Chinchilla, who supports the measure, is expected to sign it into law in the next days.” But nobody is asking the real question as to why this is happening. Let’s take a look.

Costa Rican President Laura Chinchilla was elected in 2010. She is a member of the National Liberation Party and her party holds a very clear majority in the Costa Rican Legislature, of at least a 2 to 1 margin. The National Liberation Party is a member of Socialist International.

Laura Chinchilla graduated from the University of Costa Rica and then went on to receive her master’s degree in public policy from Jesuit-run Georgetown University. She has opposed any efforts to change the country’s labeling of being a Roman Catholic nation; in other words she opposes any kind of separation of church and state.

Socialist International is a group of over 100 countries striving toward what they call, “democratic socialism”. Currently the president of Socialist International, hails from Greece, if that tells you anything.

Of utmost importance to Chinchilla are, “[e]nvironmental protection and sustainability”; those famous and recognizable words from the Vatican-controlled United Nations and Agenda 21. She advocates for the brainwashing of Costa Rican children in promoting “Odyssey 2050“, an animated film that, “motivates and educates young people from around the world into taking action on climate change.”

The linked-to news account of this ban on hunting, comes from France24, a news agency out of France, whose stated mission is to, “cover international current events from a French perspective and to convey French values throughout the world.” So, we know that the report is biased and written in such a way as to promote socialism; a “value” of France. France is currently a member of Socialist International.

However, the news report states that the idea of banning recreational hunting in Costa Rica is a “popular measure”, it is obvious that it is popular in Chinchilla’s National Liberation Party, which, even though in the last election won enough votes, it fell short of 50% of the vote. We really don’t know how the people feel about banning hunting – only the National Liberation Party.

It should not be forgotten that that is one of the outcomes of socialism. As socialism grows, even the faux title of democratic socialism, the people have no say in how their government is run. It is run by the rulers of the government, in this case the Roman Catholic Church, i.e. the Vatican.

If you do your research and studying on how the Vatican controls aspects of the United Nations, you will see that they actively promote Agenda 21, along with programs that promote that the state governments, or more accurately a one world government, will own all the land and will dictate to the people what they can and can’t do and how, if at all, resources will be used. Most of the United Nations programs support preservation, which can easily be defined as anti-hunting/anti-consumption and anti-ownership.

So, now you know why Costa Rica banned hunting. How far are you willing to allow your government to go before hunting is banned in this country? I know. It will never happen here, right?

What The Hell Is Wrong With This Country?

Imagine that you are out on your property, and you are approached by three Police Officers, one of them armed with an assault rifle. They tell you that you are inconveniencing a large developer [who happens to give lots and lots of money to the Governor], and that you have to leave your own land. This is the same developer who has been willfully trespassing on, and vandalizing your and your neighbors properties for weeks, with no intervention from authorities.

It is a scene almost too terrible to contemplate…..

Maine Audubon Pushing Their “Climate Change”

Ignorance abounds and that’s the kind of fodder that organizations like Audubon feast on in promoting their agenda-driven Marxist dogma.

The ignorance is unfortunate but it is actually perpetuated by water-muddying environmentalists who do not want people to know or understand facts and truth because that would put an end to their money making con job they are pulling on the people.

There are many and very distinct aspects of climate change, but never in any discussions that I have read or been a part of, has anyone taken a bit of extra time to expound on the differences and why it’s important to separate all issues and aspects.

Climate change, where once was generically referred to as global warming, is always used in an all-encompassing way to disparage the human race, while accusing man of being the culprit of changes in our climate. Seldom, if ever, was there even any attempts to define the deviations between natural changes and those, if any, caused by man and proven as such. Most people do not know there is a difference and this falls nicely into the hands of emotion-seeking blood suckers who promote man-caused climate changes.

Most fail to understand and certainly are not taught by those appearing to be concerned about climate, that there is a marked difference between weather, climate, proven science, modeled science, theories, differences in carbon dioxide and air and water pollutants, and the real effects all other things have on our climate. Al Gore acted nearly in a criminal way and has done more to dislodge any credibility in climate science by declaring “the science is settled”. How unfortunate. Science is never “settled” and shouldn’t be. Otherwise, how will we progress?

But, environmentalists have an agenda and it isn’t about finding the truth on what really does effect our climate and therefore they will continue to perpetuate all the lies that restrict scientific study and do what they can to play off the emotions of ignorant people and put more and more money in their banks.

The Maine Audubon will sponsor Maine State Climatologist George Jacobson in a speaking role to discuss climate change, or at least that’s the terminology that will be used. If you are hoping Mr. Jacobson might offer something refreshing and truthful, instead of the worn out verbosity of the global warming cultists, don’t hold your breath. Comments, like those published in the Bangor Daily News, let’s us know that Maine Audubon and George Jacobson are carrying on with global warming as the fault of man.

Climate changes driven by our activities, especially the use of fossil fuels, will be the great global challenge for the next few generations. How we adapt to largely unprecedented conditions will determine the fate of not just natural ecosystems, but even our own social order.

Seriously Busted!: The Final Nail in the Coffin That Destroys a Fabricated “Hockey Stick” Graph on Global Warming

“Hide the Decline”, became a catch phrase a couple years ago, when leaked emails began to surface that seemed to implicate certain climate scientists and research facilities who purposely withheld specific climate data in order to fabricate a graph that would show a steep increase in global temperatures over the past 150-200 years.

Michael Mann’s “Hockey Stick Graph” became the most famous as the media and others scarfed this up as proof that man was destroying the planet and serious things needed to be done. Almost everyone fell for it.

It has taken a lot of time and effort but finally all of the needed information has been collected to once and for all prove that climate scientists intentionally removed specific tree growth data for the purpose of producing a false result that would wrongly influence climate science and arm the political parasites looking to exploit for profit.

If you read nothing else on climate science and global warming, please read the Bishop Hill Blog. This story is detailed and carries the complete chronology from beginning to end. This IS the smoking gun.

As you will see in the graph below, the black ink represents Michael Mann’s infamous “Hockey Stick”, like the one portrayed above. This represents the result of cherry picked data in order to produce a graph that looks exactly as this one does. Along with this black ink is also green ink. The green ink in the graph depicts what it would look like if all the data intended to be used in the research had been used. As you can see, there is an unmistakeable difference.

Mild Maine Winter May Have Stalled Whitetail Deer Death Spiral

If the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife(MDIFW) is always so quick to jump on the bandwagon of severe winters as an excuse why there are no deer left in most portions of Maine’s landscape, then it would only stand to reason to jump ship and onto the bandwagon heading in the other direction when there is a mild winter. If all things are relative and one severe winter destroys a deer herd, then is it rational to conclude that one mild winter restores one?

If there has been any reprieve in continued destruction of Maine’s whitetail deer population, it comes more from what the MDIFW didn’t have their fingers in than what they did. A mild winter throughout the state probably did more to halt the death spiral of deer than anything MDIFW did or could have done.

What MDIFW did do was kill 119 coyotes. Earlier, I published the summary of their efforts. In short, MDIFW appropriated $50,000 for coyote killing. They spent $15,156, concentrating on 9 Deer Wintering Areas(DWA) and killed 119 coyote/wolf hybrids. Of note: 79 coyotes were killed by paid agents of the MDIFW and 40 were taken by volunteers.

However, I will withhold judgement on any successes or failures in this effort as the mild winter did not provide the best opportunity to find coyotes in DWAs. And, we may never get to see if any long term, concentrated effort to kill coyotes will be effective if there is no money appropriated next year or the years after that.

For Maine’s license buyers, those 79 coyotes killed by paid agents, cost $191.85 per coyote. A mild winter cost nothing. One mild winter will not cause a restoration of a severely depleted deer herd, but it may be the only hope we have. Sane sportsmen understand that real science forecasting calls for earth to be heading into at least a ten-year cooling. For those wildlife managers betting on global warming to cure their deer management problems, I wouldn’t bet the farm on it.

Global Warming Friar Steve Zwick: “Let’s let their houses burn”

Hey, if you can’t convince people that climate change is caused by man’s living and breathing, I suppose the next best thing to do, that is if you’re “demented idiot”, is to pen an article in a prominent national magazine and say this about those who don’t drink the Kool-Aid:

“We know who the active denialists are – not the people who buy the lies, mind you, but the people who create the lies. Let’s start keeping track of them now, and when the famines come, let’s make them pay. Let’s let their houses burn. Let’s swap their safe land for submerged islands. Let’s force them to bear the cost of rising food prices,” writes Zwick, adding, “They broke the climate. Why should the rest of us have to pay for it?”

Boy, that’ll convince em!
