Annual Permaculture Gathering

at La Resolana In Edgewood

Saturday, September 29, 2012

12:00 PM Site Tour

2:00 PM Potluck

3:00 PM Poetry of Hope in Dark Times — Bruce Noll

4:00 PM One Minute Announcements

4:05 PM Rainwater Harvesting —linking it all together on your site — Jim Brooks— Michael Young

Bruce Noll will share the poetry of hope selected from Frost, Sandberg, Whitman and his own writings. He has presented Walt Whitman’s “America” internationally and across America. Bruce recently “retired,” but will continue to teach poetry in the Honors Program at UNM.

Jim Brooks and Michael Young will share how they combine passive and active rainwater harvesting strategies into integrated rainwater systems. Jim is the founder of Soilutions, where Michael assists him in interpreting, engineering and documenting difficult terrain.

This free permaculture gathering will include a site tour of a variety of evolving rainwater harvesting techniques and strategies, path-making, and (young!) forest gardens.

Please bring friends and children, your favorite dish to share and your finest sunhat. Please car pool and leave pets at home.

Take I-40 to exit #187 (25 miles east of Albuquerque and 8 miles west of Moriarty). At the end of the off-ramp, go south two blocks to the stoplight at the intersection with H #333 (Smith’s Grocery will be on your left). Go straight up the hill on Edgewood Road #7 and turn right in ½ mile onto Moriarty Road (gravel). Go ¼ mile to #24 and turn right into my driveway or go straight ahead down the hill and park on your left.

I look forward to seeing everyone and meeting new friends! If you need a map or a timely update, please call me at (505) 281-4871.

Donna Crawford: Rebuttal To Man-Caused Global Warming

 

For those of you who don’t subscribe to the Alb. Journal, I’ve given you a link to the referenced article.  You might not still be able to see the whole article, but you’ll see enough to get the idea.  I just sent this Op-Ed to the Journal this morning, so it is as yet unpublished.

Albuquerque Journal, Aug. 7, 2012, “Teen Takes on Governor, State Over Climate”.  This is the second time the Journal has printed an article about Akilah Sanders-Reed on the front page slanted as if she is some kind of teen super-hero.  While I give kudos to teens being interested in science, the naivety of this girl is overwhelming.

For starters, I would hope that she knows that she is being exploited by WildEarth Guardians and similar other radical environmental groups.   They’re using her as a poster-child for their anti-coal, evil CO2, man-caused global warming agenda.

Before the media continues to make her out to be this teenage wonder woman championing her climate-change/man-caused global warming cause, perhaps there should be a few questions asked:

Did Sanders-Reed attend all of the cap and trade hearings, both under the Richardson Environmental Improvement Board (EIB) when they imposed cap and trade on NM and under the Martinez EIB when they repealed NM Cap and Trade?  It would have been nice for her to have heard both sides of the story.  I attended all of these hearings in Santa Fe and one clear point that was brought out was that New Mexico has some of the cleanest air-quality in all of the states.  Sanders-Reed should be proud of the air-quality in our state rather than siding with radical environmentalists against our Governor.  But alas, she drank the climate change “Kool-aid “after hearing a speech when she was 14 that turned her into a climate-change activist”.

Does Sanders-Reed know the origin of all this climate-change/man-caused global warming nonsense?  Global warming is the driving force behind the United Nations Agenda 21 program.  The global sustainablists needed a dire threat to enforce their plans.  Global warming and the threat of global Armageddon became the issue of choice.  The Club of Rome and the Council on Foreign Relations, two of the world’s globalist leaders, put the whole sustainablist agenda in prospective when it said: “In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill”.  They made us feel guilty, and the guilt worked for awhile until real science began to show that there simply is no evidence of man-caused global warming.  It didn’t take long for the truth to surpass the lies.

Does Sanders-Reed know that carbon dioxide is not a pollutant?  Just because the EPA says it’s so, doesn’t make it so.  To quote Jay Lehr, Ph.D. Science Director of The Heartland Institute, “Someday the world will wake up and laugh when they finally understand that the entire pursuit of economic ruin in the name of saving the planet from increasing carbon dioxide is in fact a terrible joke”.

One last question:  Does Sanders-Reed know that renewable energy (wind and solar) only has a certain limited capacity factor and has to be “backed up” by building more, not less, coal, natural gas, or nuclear power plants?  She talks about her and her generation “being stuck with the consequences of climate change”.  Without “back up” coal, natural gas or nuclear power plants, perhaps she should consider the consequences of her generation dealing with rolling black-outs, power-outages the likes of which she’s never seen, and only being able to use electricity when the government says you can do so.

TingleBoy & AxleCrude Manage To Increase Their Lies

 

Chris Matthews, AKA Tingle Boy, never tires of playing the incredulous progressive when he criticizes the conservative movement.  The examples in the article posted below illustrate his inability to  bite his tongue when he displays his ignorance of truth.

Then there is AxleCrude, who has one wheel off and his axle dragging when he tries to explain why he believes Obama is not a big fat 0 (zero) when it comes to real accomplishments on his mostly progressive/socialist goals.  I suppose we should be pleased Obama faces certain retirement in November, but it is still tiring to hear the constant drumbeat of lies from this administration and its lackey main scream media.

Accuracy In Media and Roger Aronoff report the latest strange attempts by Matthews and Axlerod as they try to explain away their inconsistencies. Read the narrative and watch the video by clicking the link below:
