Why Did The Cougar Cross The Road? The Environmental Corruption Agency Told Him To

Caltrans officials plan to build a bridge for mountain lions and other wild animals to cross the Ventura (101) Freeway west of Los Angeles, officials said last week.

The National Park System has been tracking mountain lions in the Santa Monica Mountains since 2002, and its biologists worry that the big cats are inbreeding because they are cut off from other lions in the mountains around Simi Valley and further north.
Caltrans officials announced that a $2 million planning and design grant is being sought from the federal government's infrastructure funding program. Earlier estimates for the wildlife corridor crossing cost were about $10 million.
"The new crossing will better integrate the environment and transportation systems, fostering better wildlife connectivity on either side of the 101, and increasing public safety by reducing the risk for collisions between vehicles and wildlife," said Carrie Bowen, the Caltrans director for Los Angeles and Ventura counties.

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ohio --  Experts are taking a claim of a possible mountain lion sighting in Jefferson County seriously because an off-duty wildlife officer is the one who witnessed it while on a run. It was an officer with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources who saw the animal just feet away from him while at the Fernwood State Forest on Tuesday evening. And it's prompted increased patrols to keep an eye out for the animal and keep you safe. "He was out running around 6 o'clock and about 50 feet in front, he saw the mountain lion run. Him, being an expert, we definitely knew it was a mountain lion," said ODNR Officer Supervisor Peter Novotny. It had a long tail, was about 115-150 pounds and was camel in color. That's what sets a mountain lion apart from a smaller bobcat. According to Novotny, a possible sighting of a mountain lion is rare for Jefferson County -- and the entire state for that matter. "We haven't had a wild mountain lion in sighting in Ohio for probably 200 some years," Novotny said.Read More at: WTOV 9
In one of Alaska's most remote outposts, where a thousand hardy souls make their homes, the Obama administration has put the fate of birds and bears above the lives of people, blocking construction of an 11-mile gravel trail connecting a tiny fishing hamlet to a life-saving airport. 
For more than three decades the predominantly Aleut fishing community of King Cove has been fighting to build a one-lane,gravel track connecting the Cove to the nearby hamlet of Cold Bay. What they have gotten is 30 years of flat-out federal refusals or stall tactics.
Cove residents say a road is necessary so they can reach an all-weather airport in Cold Bay that will transport them to Anchorage, about 625 miles away, for medical treatment. They say that in emergency situations, it's a matter of life and death. 
Late last year, though, the Department of Interior announced it was rejecting plans for a proposed land swap that would allow the road to be built. The Dec. 23 decision cited the negative environmental impact on grizzly bears, caribou and water fowl like the Pacific black brant.

Environmentalists have declared that global warming can’t be stopped without ending the “hegemonic capitalist system,” saying that cap-and-trade systems and conservation efforts are “false solutions.”
“The structural causes of climate change are linked to the current capitalist hegemonic system,” reads the final draft of the Margarita Declaration, presented at a conference including about 130 environmental groups.
“To combat climate change it is necessary to change the system,” the declaration adds.
Environmental activists met in the oil producing, socialist country of Venezuela as part of a United Nations-backed event to increase civil engagement in the lead up to a major climate conference.
But environmentalists surprised U.N. officials by offering up a declaration that not only seeks to end capitalism, but one that also opposes U.N.-backed efforts to fight global warming — namely, cap-and-trade and forest conservation programs...(snip)
