I used roughly 1,600 sources to construct the story and argument of Eco-Fascists. The printed and e-book cite more than 400, and I will add the rest over the next few months, as I type, sort, order, categorize and format them. Many will be hyperlinked and where the pdf's would prove useful to other researchers - as in the case of Del Norte county's fiscal disaster - I will archive them. While I could have added many many more footnotes to the print book, in some cases - because some of what I discovered surprised me so much, I would source an assertion from five different arenas; the editors felt too many citations would over-burden the book.  

Because so little of what I write about has been covered in any systematic way by the mainstream media, either by journalists or non-fiction writers, I had to construct my own library over the six years I spent researching.  I pulled data from congressional reports, congressional testimony, hundreds of interviews, books published principally by regional publishers, the blogosphere, regional media, legal briefs and testimony, the digital libraries of the U.N., various foundations and ENGO's, annual reports, IRS 990's, policy documents of various governments and so on. While I think that much of my reasoning is original, the researchers in this field who are dominant and ground-breaking are Ron Arnold, CJ Hadley and Timothy D. Findley of Range Magazine, Michael Coffman, Michael Shaw and Rob Scagel of Pacific Phytometric and the many many activists who work to help redress the balance in the country. I consulted their work frequently and in Rob's case - because his database dwarfs every one else's by at least one standard deviation - checked things with him every week.  

Please be patient with me, while I aggregate the documents.

Happy reading.

Trish Turner, “Your Tax Dollars Subsidizing Scottie Pippen, Ted Turner, and Jon Bon Jovi?”  FoxNews, 2011-11-14 14:32

“If ever there was a populist blueprint for deficit reduction, this has got to be it.Each year, millionaires are soaking the government, not illegally, for some $30 billion in benefits from tax giveaways and loan programs, according to a report by Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma.The Republican senator, a staunch fiscal hawk and equal opportunity scourge of government waste and abuse, released "Subsidies of the Rich and Famous" Monday to little fanfare, saying in an e-mailed statement, "This welfare for the well-off - costing billions of dollars a year - is being paid for with the taxes of the less fortunate, many who are working two jobs just to make ends meet, and IOUs to be paid off by future generations."

The eye-popping findings in the 36-page report include some eye-catching names, like former NBA star Scottie Pippen [1] and billionaire media mogul Ted Turner, both of whom received farm subsidies courtesy of the U.S. taxpayer. Singer Jon Bon Jovi [2] paid property taxes of only $100 last year on a plot of land he used to raise bees. Iconic crooner Bruce Springsteen also got in on the farm subsidy action, for property he leases to an organic farmer.”

Northern Forest Stewardship Act - S546

“I am David Guernsey from Kingfield, Maine. I am the President of the Sugarloaf Area Chamber of Commerce. Among my directors are the General Manager of Stratton Lumber Company, one of New England's largest and most modern dimensional lumber mills, and the President of Sugarloaf Mountain Corporation, one of New England's largest ski areas. I sit on the Economic Development Advisory Committee for Franklin County, which has a population of 25,000 and is approximately the same size as the State of Rhode Island. It is the only county in the Maine, which maintains a full time Office of Economic Development. I sat on the Northern Forest Lands Council Citizens' Advisory Committee and presently chair the Kingfield Planning Board. I sit on the Board of the Maine Conservation Rights Institute, an organization dedicated to conservation through private land ownership. Time did not permit consultation with any of these organizations. I am speaking today for myself only.

The 3 towns which our chamber represents were singled out in the 1990 Northern Forest Lands Study as one of the five areas in the 26 million acre Northern Forest which were threatened with uncontrolled development. These threats never developed, nor, according to the Sewall Report commissioned by the Northern Forest Lands Council, did any of the other threats hyped by the Northern Forest Lands Study.

Our principal problem is not too much growth but the lack of it. The federal Economic Development Administration has even funded a $100,000 study to combat Franklin County's Long Term Economic Decline. We are faced with a capital intensive paper industry with its declining job base, a wood manufacturing industry which is stagnant at best, an extremely vulnerable shoe industry, and a tourism industry which must be carefully shepherded if it is to produce acceptable economic benefits. If we are to give future generations a viable economic structure, we must be able to use our land in resourceful and innovative ways.”

Kimberly Strassel “POTOMAC WATCH Green Goodies, It's payback time for another left-leaning lobby.”  Wall Street Journal,June 15, 2007 

“First came Big Labor. Then the tort lawyers. What special interest lobby remains for the Democratic majority to reward for services rendered this past election?

The answer rests in the ecstatic press releases tumbling out of the nation's largest environmental groups, as they oversee the House's pending energy legislation. That is, if "energy" is the right word for West Virginia Rep. Nick Rahall's green-payoff of a bill. Ostensibly the legislation is a rollback of any energy production advances of recent years. But also tucked deep in its heart is an extraordinary new tool to allow environmentalists to lock up private property across the country. Bill presented; bill paid…

“But the big prize was an unprecedented new power allowing green groups to micromanage U.S. lands. That section creates "a new national policy on wildlife and global warming." It would require the Secretary of the Interior to "assist" species in adapting to global warming, as well as "protect, acquire and restore habitat" that is "vulnerable" to climate change. This is the Endangered Species Act on steroids. At least under today's (albeit dysfunctional) species act, outside groups must provide evidence a species is dwindling in order for the government to step in. This law would have no such requirements. Since green groups will argue that every species is vulnerable to climate change, the government will be obliged to manage every acre containing a bird, bee or flower.

Henry Lamb, “Private Land Ownership, social injustice; U.N. says government must control land use” Freedom Advocates, Monday, June 25, 2007:

“An official delegation from the U.S. Government actually signed a U.N. document that says:

“Private land ownership is a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth and therefore contributes to social injustice.... Public control of land use is therefore indispensable....”

Forest Facts, Evergreen Magazine, 

Annually, U.S. forestland owners plant about 6 trees for every tree harvested. 

About one-third of America's original forest - some 300 million acres - have been converted to other uses, principally agriculture. 

There are 26 million more acres of forestland in the Northeast than there were in 1900.

Today, forests blanket about one-third of the U.S. land base and about half the U.S. East.

U.S. annual growth rates have exceeded harvest rates since the 1940's.

Timber harvesting is forbidden on 50% of all National Forest lands in the U.S. 

National Forests account for 20% of the nation's forestlands and 19% of its timberlands. 

National Forests hold 46% of the nation's softwood timber inventory but only provide 6% of the annual harvest. 

Since 1986, the harvest of timber from America's national forests has declined 70%.

In the West, 34% of all forestland and 54% of all timberlands are in national forests. 

National forests in the Pacific Coast and Intermountain West regions hold 68% of the nation's softwood timber inventory, but provide less than 28% of annual harvest.

Forest density has increased 40% in the U.S. over the last 50 years.

“Treatment of Trees with Monosodium Metanearsenate (MSMA) for Bark Beetle Control Analysis” 

“Recent research and analysis concluded that people are not at risk as a result of MSMA’s former use for bark beetle control. The arsenic associated with past application is largely confined to the treated trees and is not migrating into the surrounding soil or vegetation."  This independent study was led by Dr. Ken Reimer, Director of the Environmental Sciences Group at the Royal Military College of Canada, and Dr. William Cullen, Professor Emeritus in the Chemistry Department at the University of British Columbia.

Both authors are recognized nationally and internationally as experts in arsenic toxicology. Dr. Reimer’s research interests include new ways of conducting ecological and human health risk assessments, contaminant uptake, and the transformation and mobility of arsenic in the food chain. Dr. Cullen has published extensively on the speciation, transformation and metabolism of arsenic in the environment.  BC Department of Forests and Range

“A bewildering array of federal actions is crippling rural goods-producing economies in the name of protecting nature. An urban-rural prosperity gap widens because of these actions, which damage county tax bases and vital services such as roads, schools, and law enforcement. The flow of goods being destroyed includes water production, farming, ranching, mining, timber, oil and gas, roads, and manufactured goods—in short, everything physical or material that industrial civilization needs to thrive. An "iron triangle" of coordinated interests provokes the federal actions: environmental groups, wealthy foundations, and zealous bureaucrats. Their campaign of rural cleansing is turning vital resource producers into despised and disposable inferiors.”

Eric Veyhl, “Preservationists Acknowledge Growing Grass Roots Opposition", Land Rights Letter, February 1993:

“Reports on a major environmentalist conference held last October have revealed an unusually candid, but private, acknowledgement by environmentalist leaders as to the scope and source of their opposition from the private property and "wise use" movements.

A session entitled "The Wise Use Movement – Threats and Opportunities," at the Environmental Grantmakers Association meeting in Washington State last October, discussed how organized opposition to environmentalist initiatives is coming from a genuine grass roots uprising – not from "corporate funded front groups," the "John Birch Society," or the "Moonies," as is publicly claimed by preservationist publicity campaigns seeking to discredit those who speak out against them.

"All over the country it's like a gas, it's filling – its filling the available space," said worried session leader Debra Callahan, listing grass roots opposition to environmentalist-caused problems ranging from loss of property rights to loss of rural jobs and destruction of rural economies.

Callahan based her conclusions on a long term investigation, which she boasted has included the use of "spies."

The session was part of a three day conference in which environmentalists meet with corporate and foundation sponsors who jointly determine environmentalist strategy and decide on the dispensation of hundreds of millions of dollars in grants to activist groups.”

Always applicants for more government, the green nonprofits Teresa has funded stray well outside traditional nature-oriented issues to make partisan action callson Homeland Security measures and foreign policy.

Dear All:

Wilburforce - Paul Allen Foundations meeting to discuss forestland conservation opportunities in the

Pacific Northwest, and Montana.


10:00 am to 2:30 pm

Plum Creek Lands - Strategic Lands in Strategic Places: Are there opportunities for leverage and bulk

discount conservation? Plum Creek is the largest private timber company in much of the Pacific

Northwest. Their lands are usually the privately owned squares in the western landscape of the private

and public land checkerboard. Their lands are also potential valuable in any discussion of a state or

national park in Maine. With pending government acquisition pots of money on the horizon and

changing business strategies of timber companies, an opportunity for large scale engagement with Plum

Creek may be at hand. Part one of this meeting is to determine the extent of Plum Creek holdings,

determine areas of potential conservation importance, and discuss possible strategies for large scale

conservation of Plum Creek lands. Part two of the meeting will look at the design of an appraisal process

to figure out the cost of a Plum Creek conservation effort.

Plum Creek Lands Discussion:

Introduction of Participants

Brief Description by each participant of what they bring to the table with regards to land conservation

and working with Plum Creek

Background on Plum Creek Holdings

Areas of Ecological Importance

Areas of Ecological Importance with compatible recreational uses

Plum Creek holdings at large

The Opportunities in dealing with Plum Creek

The company

The changes in timberland management

External factors at hand

Flathead and Crowsnest Pass - Key Landscape Corridors in US and Canada Crowsnest Pass just north of

the US and Canadian border is a major pincher

point in maintaining landscape connectivity in North America. The pass is adjacent to the North Fork of

the Flathead River—a watershed of supreme importance for carnivore conservation. The Flathead

maintains the highest density of Grizzly Bears in all of North America except coastal Alaska. The region

feeds bears to Glacier National Park and Bob Marshall Wilderness to the south in the US; Waterton

National Park and Castle Crown region to the East in Canada; and the four Jewels of the Rocky Mountain

National Parks to the north in Canada—Banff, Jasper, Yoho and Kootenay. Crowsnest Pass is the eastwest

barrier to the north-south movement of bears, wolves and other carnivores. Except for a portion of

the Flathead within Glacier National Park—the region has little conservation protection.

Harvey Locke of the Kendall Foundation will lead a briefing on a potential land conservation strategy to

protect this region of utmost conservation importance.

Please let me know if you can attend. If you need help in finding accommodation.

Thanks Gary

“47,000 Reasons to Join the Rural Revolution”  “The evidence is before us and your verdict needs to be handed down, as Queens Park and Stone road bureaucrats conspire to eliminate 47 000 Ontario farms and families from rural Ontario. The attached article is a generous account of the bureaucratic discussions circulating in Toronto and Guelph. It is no coincidence that these discussions follow the report released last year by "The panel on the role of Government" that states Rural Ontario is unsustainable and its people should be relocated to the more healthy and sustainable "urban environment". Furthermore the report suggests that all subsidies for rural Ontario be eliminated and increased environmental regulations be added.”  The Landowner, July 2005.

National Wildlife Federation advocate Steve Woodruff (July 21 guest opinion) tried to buffalo readers recently, claiming concerns of Montana producers regarding free-roaming bison are “fanciful fears,” the “worst fears of catastrophizers.”

‘For decades, Montana, Idaho and Wyoming livestock producers begged the National Park Service to manage the brucellosis problem in its overpopulated Yellowstone herd. The NPS foolishly refused. As a result, a dangerous exotic disease from the other side of the planet is firmly rooted in Yellowstone, and spreading.

“Yellowstone-region elk, a wide-ranging, popular game species that traditionally shares ground with cows, caught brucellosis from bison. Ask Bridger ranch couple Jim and Sandy Morgan what happened then.”

“Foremost among those lessons, is the lack of political will to prioritize among competing but important, public policy goals.Vegetation and fuel management, habitat preservation and environmental protection have often conflicted with sound fire safeplanning in the development of wildland areas. When adverse weather and fuel conditions combine, our firefighters have been given the impossible task of protecting life and property in the face of those policy conflicts.”

“In July 2011, Beacon Power inaugurated a 20 MW flywheel energy storage plant in Stephentown, New York. Company revenues from the plant were $525,000 in the second quarter of 2011. The money for the New York plant came from the DOE in the form of a loan guarantee under the Energy Policy Act of 2005. In 2009, Beacon was offered a loan guarantee of about tune of $43 million to build the plant.”

U.S. Department of Energy Loan Programs Office “Our Projects”

“The Financing Force Behind America’s Clean Energy Economy

The Department of Energy’s Loan Programs enable DOE to work with private companies and lenders to mitigate the financing risks associated with building out commercial-scale clean energy projects, thereby encouraging the broader and more rapid growth of the sector. The Loan Programs Office is one of the largest and most active project finance operations in the world and, since 2009, has supported a robust, diverse portfolio of nearly 40 projects. Projects include the world’s largest wind farm, several of the world’s largest solar generation facilities, one of the country’s first commercial-scale cellulosic ethanol plants, and the first new nuclear power plant in the U.S. in the last three decades.  Collectively, these projects plan to employ more than 60,000 Americans, create additional tens of thousands of indirect jobs, provide enough clean electricity to power three million homes, and save more than 300 million gallons of gasoline a year. Many of these projects are first-of-a-kind that, when completed, can be replicated entirely but the private sector across the U.S., creating even more jobs and increasing our nation’s ability to compete successfully in this critical field on a global basis.”
