A Two-Ton Fish Reels Into Town

Fin the giant salmon rolled into Cannery Row for a daylong visit to pump up public awareness of the plight of wild salmon on the Columbia and Snake rivers in Washington state.

Fin is big enough for a child to crawl into. Three year old Lazuli Dunton of Santa Cruz, declined to crawl inside. “It’s scary.”

Cannot figure out if the eco-nuts want to fence off the rivers so the fish can be left alone (only to be eaten by bears or sea lions) or just another anti-farmed salmon terrorists. Shrug. They never really tell the whole story.

Giant Salmon fish

Yah, set the salmon free. I’d rather have a burger than fish any day.

Empty Headed Eco-Nuts – Sustainable P.G.

I’m all for common sense to reduce waste, but this crap is ridiculous. This sounds like hippies that sold to the man out are back, and now they are broke and looking for handouts, or at least a reason to not find real work. “Dude, lets grow organic herbs and sell them, like, to the hardware store for some nails”. “Yah, man – we can also have a fashion show with garbage. We can get a far out grant from the city and score some bud, man.”

From the website.

Are you having a gathering where you want to use biodegradable food service items? Want to spread the word on how to help organizations become more sustainable?
Click here to see a page of sources for biodegradable goods.
http://www.sustainablepg.org/green/bio_goods.php

That source contains NOTHING LOCAL. Links to buy stuff from sustainable Cleavland. Aint that stupid?

Got a lot of time on your hands and don’t want to use modern disenfectants or cleaners? They recommend solving world problems with vinegar. Does not work.

Then lets change some more. After a few tokes they come up with this fantasy:

Residents walk throughout town finding the goods they need and new stores open to showcase locally manufactured products. A local bike store houses a bike-lending library, and citizens ride scooters and bikes down our roads. A tool-lending library and a fix-it shop opens to allow residents to share tools and knowledge.

Problem is, the town does not cater to residents. This stuff is useless to tourists and generates little to no tax revenue. To really sustain, you need money. Unless we move toward living in communes . . .

Waco Utopia

More Fantasies:

Rail, transit expansion, bicycle and walking,
Speed limit reduction, self limitation of non-essential driving

Hah! “limitation of non-essential driving” They want to take away your driving privileges.

Telecommuting, compressed work week, worker relocation closer to job sites.

Workers in PG cannot afford to live here. Will they set up tents in the “open spaces” like street medians?

More . . some of the group’s ideas include

A green job corps, in which high school students could learn skills such as converting businesses or houses to solar energy

Solar in PG? Named the foggiest town in America.

Growing community gardens and selling the produce at a weekly farmers market now in the works

Let’s not pay income or sales taxes.

Creating a local mutual fund with money going to community projects.

Where does they money come from? Compost Sales?

Widening bike lanes and bringing electric bikes to town

Electric bikes. Ooh, more wasteful energy. Streets in PG are too narrow to share – so see the part about taking our cars away.

Reclaiming common spaces, such as traffic medians, for community art projects and gardens.

Or tents for the people that have to live closer to their minimum wage jobs.

Holding community-building events such as a soup night or projecting movies against a building

Ooo boy. Yah, let’s all gather for showings of “Loose Change” and other leftist propaganda. Don’t drink the kool aide.

Jim Jones Kool Aid

Someone tell me this is all a joke.

Peace Kooks Caught With Stolen Property

Marina City Councilman Dave McCall was mighty surprised when he learned a long-missing campaign sign from his November 2006 re-election race was spotted last weekend on a street corner in Monterey.

He was concerned enough about the company being kept by the 2-by-4-foot red, white and blue placard to interrupt a pleasant Sunday afternoon and zoom down to Window on the Bay Park.

McCall bolted from his car, grabbed his sign, checked for any other campaign signs and started to leave. One male protester grabbed him for a moment.

McCall, who has his sights set on a run for Marina mayor next year, thought the last thing he needed was a confrontation in the middle of this scene. He whipped out his ID and the protester relented. McCall went home and called police to report the incident, just to keep his bases covered.

“It’s irritating, why someone would take my sign … or try to ruin my credibility using my sign in that situation,” McCall said later. “I just wanted to handle it calmly.”

P.G. Going Solar? Mayor Dan Cort Says Yes

Mayor Dan Cort wants to install solar panels on the city’s buildings and schools, which he said would reduce energy use by as much as 80 percent and set an example for other small California cities. I want Pacific Grove to be a totally energy sustainable, green city, Cort said. Representatives from Honeywell, a multinational corporation that specializes in energy efficient systems, were in town last week and visited several buildings to determine what’s necessary to retrofit them for solar energy.

Once known as the foggiest city in the USA. Has the climate changed to Arizona conditions over the last 100 years?
