AMBAG is drinking the Agenda 21 kool aide. Don’t buy into this harmless sounding feelgood stuff. Sustainable Development means population reduction, travel restrictions, loss of rights and other fascist progress.
I recommend this local group to get the other side of the story: www.FreedomAdvocates.org
It is close to the anniversary of that well known socialist experiment called Jonestown, isn’t it?
The report suggests that coordinating regional land-use and transportation policies can reduce congestion by cutting back on personal vehicle use, conserve valuable open space and farmland by clustering development, and provide a variety of housing and transportation options.
Employing “sustainable growth patterns” would focus new, compact development in already populated areas, with jobs within walking distance of mixed-use public transit and neighborhood centers, according to the report.
World Government Of Our Locality?
The discrepancy between SPG’s big presence and small volunteer pool has caught the attention of P.G. sisters Pat and Sally Herrgott. “I’m confused about what kind of an organization they are,” Pat Herrgott says. “They’re just a loose group of people with similar objectives. To me, they seem more like a political action committee than a nonprofit.”
At only 2 years old, Sustainable Pacific Grove has taken up a big public presence: hosting eco-booths at Good Old Days; running green cleaning and worm composting workshops; developing criteria for the new P.G. Farmers Market; lobbying for a regional ban on polystyrene take-out containers; and outfitting the eco-hub known as The Green Spot with an edible garden, fog collector and cisterns.
Edible Garden? The Brown Green Spot is a collective of weeds, garbage and fire hazards.
Three foot high weeds and discarded coffee cup (not a styrofoam cup!)
Broken glass to play with.
Using old news as moisture barrier? Looks more like litter.
The collective of rubbish and unsafe lead acid storage batteries.
Sustainable P.G. – Noble Cause Or Ego Trip?
Looks real brown to me.
Substainable P.G. cannot get enough gray water to sustain a few weeds. It’s been there a month, and there never seems to be anyone there. There really is not much interest in this sustainable stuff beyond the small cult of Agenda 21 followers.
For the past several months, three groups have been working to render the neglected little spot green. The one-room building’s 650 square feet are rather drab at first glance, but it’s a work in progress. Applied Solar employees have hung photos of local photovoltaic installations along one wall. Sustainable PG’s Joy Colangelo painted waves, stars and a jellyfish over the bullet holes in the window.
Ultimately, the G-Spot’s enthusiasts envision the space as a magnet for eco-oriented meetings, potlucks and live music – a place for the community to experiment in shades of green.
Why Do They Call It The Green Spot?
