Schoodic Point and Maine News…

Seems we have a relatively new project proposed for another part of the state, like I mentioned a few days ago, at Schoodic Point, right next to Acadia National Park. Of course, you know how I feel about big developments, so I just had to poke at this new sleeping skunk. There are some interesting things involved with this project, and it does indeed turn out to be something I’d rather not see happen to the state of Maine.

Most of the characters in this story are different that the characters involved in the Plum Creek Timber proposal, but there is one beady eyed little bugger that crops up once again. Seems Maine is gonna be hard put to cinch this one to a snub line and let go of him. Too bad. But what of this development, and why don’t I like the idea behind it?

Well, like in the Plum Creek scenario, I don’t have an essential argument with development, but I do have an argument with mega-development. And that’s exactly what we have here proposed in Maine’s Downeast area. The details at this point are rather as the full plan has not been presented to the public, but if what I’ve read is anywhere close to accurate, it’ll be a big project.

But the big thing that irks me is this title of “Eco-resort” that the developer has been throwing around. What exactly is an “Eco–resort” anyways? Digging through all of the oddball links and news stories on the web I found one link in particular that raises a question. Actually many questions, and most of them will never be answered here. But once again, the UN makes an appearance in yet another ecology based fad. Believe it or not, they have available an 85 page manual on how to properly promote eco-tourism in the worlds marketplace. They’re even arrogant enough to set standards as to what should happen in one of these resort destinations.

Here’s a quote from the introduction to this manual……………

“Local Agenda 21 is the special mandate given to local governments within Agenda 21, adopted at the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro as a way to move towards sustainable development. The Local Agenda 21 approach brings this commitment to the local level, allowing each community to set its own path towards sustainable development. ICLEI’s concern is to ensure that Local Agenda 21 processes are truly participatory with the involvement of all stakeholders, and that they result in new commitments by municipalities and their communities not only to improve and extend urban services, but to do so in a sustainable way.”<p>
Exactly why does this agenda 21 crap keep popping up all across Maine? It showed up in the Plum Creek proposal, everything The Nature Conservancy touches has the smell of UN domination on it, most local planning actions are becoming seated in this insidious program from the UN.

Here’s another quote from the same document……………..

“Many local authorities have been working with their communities to establish a Local Agenda 21 action plan for sustainable development.”

A local Agenda 21? How many communities in Maine have been hornswoggled by this ploy? The UN creates this false doctrine of CO2 being man made, and how the world will come to an end if we don’t comply with their goal of Carbon reduction, and then they sneak in through the back door and get the laws changed so that this organization that does nothing useful besides eating up our tax dollars. (Check out the US budget and how much we give these buggers every year. You’ll be unpleasantly surprised.)

So is this how this Italian Guy, Bruno Modena a pawn for the UN, or is he just using this Eco-tourist line to squeeze through the zoning process and rake the rich environmentalists on a phony vacation?

Hard to tell at this point since the details haven’t been fully made public at this point of time. According to an article from 24 April in the Ellsworth American, a meeting has been set for 14 May where Mike Saxl, (one time Speaker of the House, Maine), the attorney representing the Modena interests will be releasing details of the proposed development. 7PM at the Winter Harbor Gymnasium, if you’d like to attend. Much as I’d like to attend, I’ll have to miss out.

According to several articles, the proposed development is to consist of 3,200 acres. Acadia National Park, by the way, only contains 2,400 acres, just to give an indication of the size of this project. Intended to be built are two world class hotels, an 18 hole “Audubon certified” golf course, several carriage roads and condo style housing. Sounds like quite a dream, but from what I’ve read, it doesn’t quite qualify to be called an “eco-tourist” destination in my book.

From what I’ve read, the majority of the acreage is heavily forested, and to construct this sort of monstrous development would entail quite a bit of clear cutting. In light of the controversy in New Mexico with Modena’s plan to drill 37 deep water wells extending to depths of 2,000 feet, I wonder just how ecologically sound this plan is here in Maine?

Reports from New Mexico indicate that many of the area residents in the San Augustine plains area fear, and rightly so, that their own wells, many under 200’ will quickly dry up and leave them without water. The reasons behind the Augustine Plains Ranch LLC desire to undertake this project have yet to be shared with the public. Perhaps they intend to turn the ranch into a lush “eco-tourist” destination by draining the aquifer?

Either way, whenever somebody tries to use the environment as a marketing tool, I tend to immediately question the motives behind the move. The UN simply has too many thumbs stuck into the pies of the world, and it’s time to change that status.

I’ll be keeping an eye on developments up at Schoodic, as well as the Northwood’s as well. I understand that there may be some more proposals coming forth after the approval of the Plum Creek plan becomes public. Be interesting to see what happens. Welcome to Club Maine, folks. I wonder if what happens here will stay here?

Looks like a pretty bad spell of Red Tide for this season……………..

Revelation 17;3,4

3For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

4And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
