Maine, the Northeastern UN stronghold?

Plum Creek VS Maine, struggle still going on!

Yep! That’s right, Plum Creek just isn’t going to go away. I know that, you know that, and they know that. but most importantly, TNC knows that. but TNC can live with it because they’re getting everything they want, and you and I are going to be paying for it. Big time, I fear. I’ve been taking some criticism because of comments on the UN backing and increasing control over the state of Maine they are gaining, but so what. I have no plans of meekly accepting servitude to the one world government TNC is currently trying to sneak into the back door.

A recent news release says that Maine’s own Roger Milliken is ascending to the position of chairman for the board at TNC. Looky that folks, a man who has an eye on the 100,000 acres he owns in Maine’s woodland paradise is going to be running the show. You know, that’s the same position old Hank Panky Paulson held when the controversy over the Terra del Fuego scandal reared up. Yes indeed, the Maine connection to the UN is certainly being strengthened. You might recall a few posts ago when I mentioned that Susan Rice was appointed to be the Great B.O.’s ambassador to the UN in Maine’s growing UN connection…. We mustn’t forget that TNC is an NGO member of the UN.

I first brought up Milliken in Showdown at Plum Creek where I talked a bit about some of the little things that will crop up and bite Maine on her tree covered butt because of the LURC’s decision to allow this plan to go forward. And to top things off, I get this please send us money letter from the NRCM the other day. Of course, they are using the Moosehead threat as an emotional gadget to get us to donate. To tell you the truth, unless they sever their relationship with TNC there is no way I will join, help, or contribute to the NRCM. It seems funny to me that while NRCM and Maine Audubon fight Plum Creek and TNC with a seemingly honest vigor, they are actually partnered in many ways. I really don’t buy into their claims of protest anymore. There’s just too much manipulation going on behind closed doors at the state level.

Let’s look at the NRCM board members bio page for a moment. Board member Adam Lee is currently serving on the boards of Maine Audubon … as well as serving on The Nature Conservancy’s Corporate Conservation Council of Maine. Board member Ken Olsen previously served as Executive Director of The Nature Conservancy of Connecticut… Board member Tony Owen is plant conservation volunteer with New England Wildflower Society and a former trustee of Hurricane Island Outward Bound and The Nature Conservancy. Board member Thomas Teitenberg was the team leader for the United Nations project that laid the foundation for the design of the emissions trading, joint implementation and clean development mechanism components of the Kyoto Protocol on Climate Change. He currently serves as one of three Trustees for the Energy and Carbon Savings Trust, a Maine institution which uses revenues from the sale of allowances in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) to fund energy efficiency projects in the state, and he represents the Trust as a member of the Energy Conservation Board.

But you can see where the path leads. How can all of the people be against the Plum Creek proposal when they support the goals of TNC and the UN? In some upcoming posts I’ll be sharing some research into the one world government concepts espoused by the UN and their environmental philosophy. Think I’m kidding? The Road map towards the implementation of the United Nations Millennium Declaration is an interesting document. Take a look at this excerpt;

…which didn’t come out as well as I had hoped. But follow the link above and read the 58 pages on your own.

We’ll see what happens down the road, but for now, suffice it to say that the LURC is opening a can of worms that will one day destroy this apple called Maine.

In the meantime….

WASHINGTON— The United States could be sleep-walking into its next crisis, a military report said.

The report by the U.S. Army War College’s Strategic Institute, said that a defense community paralyzed by conventional thinking could be unprepared to help the United States cope with a series of unexpected crises that would rival the Al Qaida strikes in 2001, termed a “strategic shock.” …
“Widespread civil violence inside the United States would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order and human security,” the report, authored by [Ret.] Lt. Col. Nathan Freir, said.

IMF warns of economic riots, police ready for civil unrest

Pentagon resources and U.S. troops may be used if needed to quell protests and bank runs during an economic crisis, the U.S. Army War College’s Strategic Institute reported.”Widespread civil violence inside the United States would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order and human security,” the War College study states.Incidents of economic collapse, terrorism and disruption of legal order could require deployment of forces within the U.S., it said.A “strategic shock” could require the nation to use “military force against hostile groups inside the United States.”

State’s jobless rate hits 14-year high

The unemployment rate in Maine hit 6.3 percent in November, the highest rate in 14 years, as local employers shed jobs amid a deepening national recession, state labor officials announced Friday.
A year ago, Maine’s unemployment rate for November was 4.9 percent. In October of this year, it was 5.7 percent.
“The national job market just collapsed in November, and Maine took its share of that,” economic forecaster and University of Southern Maine professor Charles Colgan said Friday.

Carbon auction nets Maine, other states $106.5 million

The nation’s second auction of carbon dioxide emissions allowances will bring $106.5 million to Maine and nine other Northeastern states in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative.
Pete Grannis, the organization’s chairman, said the results prove that distributing allowances through auctions in a carbon dioxide cap-and-trade program can be successful. RGGI is seen as a blueprint for a national program to curb global warming by reducing carbon emissions.
All 31.5 million allowances, each representing 1 ton of carbon, were sold in Wednesday’s auction for a clearing price of $3.38 per allowance, RGGI reported Friday.
