*** A Case Against Natural Resources Wales.

 

Us bringing this case was always going to be a win win.  If we'd had won, it would've meant a victory for the plantlife growing in all NRW's. managed sites and if we'd lost, it would had been yet another example of an injustice we could reveal.  We all know just how things are stacked up in favour of the rich and against the less wealthy, animal welfare and wildlife issues, it's largely why we've nothing left these days, and it's results like this that demonstrate it each and every time.  You can have the best team of lawyers in the world, but claiming something wrong is right does not make it right, and legal consensus doesn't necessarily mean it's right either.

*** Endangered Species Act:  A Big Success! 

 

A big success?  In this American article it assumes success because 'Bald Eagles are doing so well' (but only in one or two locations would be my guess).  For me this sums up entirely the complacency that's to be found everywhere.  The fact that Eagles have done so well, is, I think, largely down to the Eagles themselves rather than anything conservationists can claim any credit for.

 

Just look around at what we've lost and still are losing and you can see exactly why it is I am so concerned.  The plain fact is, although there's often an acknowledgement that thing's are badly wrong, no-one is facing up to the real issues as to why conservation measures are failing so appallingly.

 

Even though it's blatantly obvious things are far from recovering, nothing is being looked at either from a case by case perspective nor from a broader holistic level (or at least not in any meaningful way).  Instead, as is argued here, they cite a couple of species that just happen to be doing well, and then claim everything as one resounding success.

 

Most conservation organisations world-wide are behind deceitful cover-ups, from properly-sited wind farms to sustainable palm oil right down to wildlife friendly trophy hunting, all of which stinks of blatant corruption.  And the RSPB. even claims herbicides are somehow beneficial to birdlife.  http://docs.wixstatic.com/ugd/74da12_63ff52f5aaf948ad87f7f76fca34529e.pdf

*** Warning Of Ecological Armageddon!

 

With pesticides, general land mismanagement and now finally wind farms, our wildlife is in real trouble.

 

What's not commonly realised the rotating turbine-blades visually draw in vast numbers of flying insects with every wind turbine acting like a vortex sucking them in and spitting them out the other side.  Each blade acts like a sweeping great gigantic fly swat, with wind energy quite probably killing higher numbers of insects than pesticides right now, and this is coming from someone who's more anti-chemical than most.

 

As always scientists cling onto this 'climate change' argument without even wanting to know what the real problems are.  It is also extremely easy for the authorities to quietly ignore issues they don't want to listen to with many actually favouring the very things that are causing the disaster in the first place.  Tens possibly hundreds of millions of birds killed each year together with countless zillions of flying insects.

 

You will not find anything about it mentioned here of course even though it's probably nearer the truth than you'll find anywhere.
