Your tax dollars at work: U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service issues über-alarmist report

I guess their new “science” adviser (see prior post) is having results:

“As part of the Department of the Interior’s commitment to building a coordinated strategy to respond to the impacts of climate change on the nation’s natural resources, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service today releases its final strategic plan that will guide the agency’s efforts to respond to the unprecedented threat posed by global warming.

The plan, titled “Rising to the Urgent Challenge: Strategic Plan for Responding to Accelerating Climate Change,” provides a framework within which the Service will work as part of the conservation community to help ensure the sustainability of fish, wildlife, plants and habitats in the face of accelerating climate change.  …

“The growing impacts from climate change on wildlife, plants, and watersheds call for a coordinated and strategic response from the Department and its bureaus,” says Tom Strickland, Assistant Secretary of the Interior for fish and wildlife and parks. “The Service’s plan is both a call to arms and a clear roadmap for action. It is firmly rooted in sound science, an adaptive, landscape-scale conservation approach, and collaboration with partners.”  …

“The Service’s climate strategy acknowledges and embraces the agency’s role in providing national leadership on this critical issue facing fish and wildlife agencies, while also acknowledging the critical role of states, tribes, and private organizations in delivering fish and wildlife conservation across the country,” says Dave Schad, Director of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Division of Fish and Wildlife.  …

Bob Bendick, Director of U.S. Government Relations for The Nature Conservancy, says the plan “issues a challenge to every Service member and every Service partner to act swiftly and decisively in response to unprecedented change in the natural world, identifying collective wisdom and collaborative action as yardsticks to our success.””  “Service Releases Final Climate Change Strategy

Excerpts from the plan:

“We must act now, as if the future of fish and wildlife and people hangs in the balance — for indeed, all indications are that it does.  …

At the dawn of the 21st century, we find our commitment and resolve and our passion and creativity being called upon once again as we face what portends to be the greatest challenge to fish and wildlife conservation in the history of the Service: The Earth’s climate is changing at an accelerating rate that has the potential to cause abrupt changes in ecosystems and increase the risk of species extinctions.  …

Given the disruption that a changing climate implies for our mission, our nation, and our world, we in the Service and the Department cannot afford to simply give lip service to this crisis and go on about business as usual. We are at a crossroads in our nation’s conservation history.”

    A new climate conference is coming up. Over here, in quasi bankrupt Greece, it has become apparent that all the climate change mythology is carefully cultivated by Germans trying to export their “high tech” garbage to other people’s land, with other people’s inflated electricity prices.

    Check out the ads in US “green” sites: Siemens, Siemens, Siemens. :They have the “green solutions”

    I was reading Google’s intented participation in a project with “Good Energies” (in Zug). ( http://www.goodenergies.com/)

    Good Energies is part of COFRA Holdings (Zug). http://www.cofraholding.com/en/default.asp
    Clothing, financial services with a bank in Brasil, and ..renewables. “billions of dollars”.
    COFRA owns C&A retail (which might have owned the EMS chain)

    COFRA is managed and is owened by the Brenninkmeijer family. Nice, conservative very low key.

    Marcel Br. is in a group called Private Wealth Council (in Zug)
    http://privatewealthcouncil.org/

    Guess who is also in this Group. Al Gore. The shy family man, is the only businesspeople in the Group.

    “Our meetings aim to provide an ongoing source of good intelligence for wealth owners on key issues pertaining to the responsible generation and preservation of private wealth. While each meeting takes a different theme, the key focus remains on exploring opportunities for investing on the right side of change”

    THEY are one of the storefronts promoting “climate change”

    I do not know you, but here is a nice little paperback which you may find amusing: The Laundrymen by Jeffrey Robinson

    Apologies, but I am on the same subject. Please check out the summary of all the antiamerican rhetoric in a manual of “Responsible Wealth” (promoting — you guessed it!– renewable energy to save the planet) in an article by the Nobel winning leftist intelectual Gunther Grass.

    on page 12

    Is Al Gore a party to such rhetoric?
