Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Steps Up Wolf Killing

Wolves on the open range

The Department takes aim at Grouse Flats Pack, said to be responsible four cattle depredations in two months

We are seeing a state wildlife agency morphing into a group of hired guns for cattle ranchers running their animals on our public lands.”

— Wayne Pacelle, president of the Center for a Humane Economy

OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON, USA, September 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Yesterday, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife director Kelly Susewind authorized the incremental killing of wolves in the Grouse Flats pack in the southeast part of the state. Prior wolf-killing plans targeted animals in northeast part of the state, mainly in the Colville National Forest, due to the reckless ranching practices from the Diamond M Ranch. The range for the Grouse Flats pack extends into Oregon, and the plan allows for two kills, a pause to consider the effects on the behavior of survivors, and then a determination on killing the remaining wolves.

The state says that the eight members of the Grouse Flats pack engaged in two depredations on calves or cows in the last 30 days for a total of four depredations in the past two months, triggering the option of lethal removal under the state's Wolf Management Plan. The cows or calves killed by wolves were mainly grazing on federal land or state land (wildlife areas) through a permitting system.

This new kill order comes five weeks after the state was able to kill the four remaining wolves of the Old Profanity Peak pack in the days and hours before a Superior Court judge granted an injunction to wolf advocates halting the killings. “We are seeing a state wildlife agency morphing into a group of hired guns for cattle ranchers running their animals on our public lands,” said Wayne Pacelle of the Center for a Humane Economy, the group assisting with a lawsuit that sought to protect the members of the Old Profanity Peak. In that case brought by three Washington citizens who enjoy hiking and seeing wildlife, the judge found the Diamond M Ranch derelict in its responsibility to undertake required nonlethal preventative steps prior to the state’s deadly intervention

“The Department is simply too quick on the trigger in authorizing wolf kills, especially on public lands," added Jennifer McCausland of the Center for a Humane Economy. "We need a time-out on wolf killing in the state after the agency's overreach in killing off the entire Old Profanity Pack in the Colville National Forest. There is a trust issue with the state wildlife agency and its predator-killing actions.”

The state canceled public hearings on the state’s wolf management plans, citing threats and safety concerns. That action, whether warranted or not, does inhibit the agency from getting feedback on its wolf management practices.

Prior to the spate of recent killings, wolves have been slowly reclaiming small portions of their original range in Washington. However, the state is on pace this year to kill a fifth of all Washington’s wolves, which the Department of Fish and Wildlife had previously estimated at approximately 125 animals. Wolves are federally protected as an endangered species in the western two-thirds of the state. In the eastern third of the state, wolves are considered threatened and subject to the state’s lethal removal policy based on livestock attacks. The Department has a standing order to kill two wolves in the Togo pack in northeastern Washington.

The Karner Blue Center for a Humane Economy (“the Center”) is a non-profit organization linked to the investment advisor Karner Blue Capital (“KBC”) that focuses on influencing the conduct of corporations to forge a humane economic order. The first organization of its kind in the animal protection movement, the Center encourages businesses to honor their social responsibilities in a culture where consumers, investors, and other key stakeholders abhor cruelty and the degradation of the environment and embrace innovation as a means of eliminating both.

Bill Fawell Announces Candidacy for Republican 17th Congressional District Illinois

Fawell for Congress

Bill Fawell, announces his candidacy for the 2020, 17th Congressional election protesting unAmerican censorship by corrupt Illinois Republican party leadership.

Today, what is moral is what is legal and what is legal is for sale.”

— paraphrased Charles Hughs Smith

GALENA, ILLINOIS, USA, September 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — “I am formally announcing my candidacy for the 17th Congressional District as a true Republican dedicated to restoring The People’s Rule over their government,” Fawell declared. "I am also calling out some corrupt leadership members of the party who have censored my campaign to the Republican Party Faithful.
Bill Fawell, a life long Republican, has lived in Galena, Il. for over 20 years and comes from a family long dedicated to public service in local, state and federal government.
“Today what is moral is what is legal, and what is legal is for sale; and so it is no surprise America is caught in a downward spiral of corruption creating the disparity in rights and wealth that has divided we American’s as a people. And now after years of abusing we the people, it is in the throes of systemic failure and coming to its end,” Fawell said.
“It is critical that America restores The Peoples Rule so that all we Americans have a solid moral, ethical, economic and legal basis upon which to come together in peace once more and ensure America’s Greatness,” Bill explained. “I propose 3 existing and popular bi-partisan Acts before Congress today, which I call ‘Let The People Rule’ comprised of Term Limits; the Federal Reserve Transparency Act (Fed Audit) and the REINS (rein in govt) Act; all of which if passed would end the end the rule of America by its Federal Agencies, a corrupt system where 90% of our laws are made behind closed doors by lobbyist writing the best laws billionaires can buy. It is Agency Capitalism and it is this corrupt system that has set American against American.”
Covering 6933 square miles in northwestern Illinois, the 17th is primarily made up of rural farm communities punctuated by the manufacturing centers of Rockford, Quad-Cities and Peoria.
“My campaign slogan is ‘PEOPLE B4 PARTIES’ and I am running so that the people have a choice and not a selection as designated by the two political party’s,” Bill continued. “I have been censored by many of the Republican county organizations and state without right of rebuttal because they are corrupt and unAmerican,” Fawell said. "It is not that they fear me, no. But they fear the voters who will hear my message."
“My primary opponent, Ms Esther King refuses via text to support the 3 bills in ‘Let The People Rule’ because she tells me she is supported by these corrupt officials in the Republican party and has to do what they say,” Fawell explained, “but no one can serve two masters. It is either the party or the people and I chose the people from which I came.
“I’m sure Esther is a nice lady,” Fawell said, “but I told her this summer she was dealing with the same corrupt people that caused Mark Kleine, my most worthy opponent two years ago, to point to their corruption as his reason for leaving politics mid-campaign. But it is clear in her announcement and web page she has embraced their corruption. Why is there no mention of her employment as chief consul and directorship to the Illinois Dept of Commerce? Is it because she comes from government and is ashamed to let the voter know? Where did she find the time to garner the experience needed to become a real estate development attorney she claims? Was it while working for the government? Law school at Northwestern isn’t cheap for a homeless young girl living on the Mexican border in a school bus and it clearly takes clout to land a first job with Kirkland & Ellis. Now, after living in Chicago for 6+ years she says she was suddenly reassigned to Rock Island by the Army? Since when does a reservist receive orders of reassignment? Isn’t this the purpose of being a reservist that you get to live at home,” Fawell asked? She's from Chicago via Dallas and this reeks of a political carpetbagger, a valid question when so much is left out of her disclosure, and there is more.
“Isn’t her membership in the globalist based Chicago Council on Global Affairs (formerly Chicago Council on Foreign Relations: affiliated CFR) relevant to her political activities? These are material facts that the people of the 17th Congressional District deserve to know as there are too many ‘Lies of Omission' in Ms. King's resume,“ Fawell pointed out.
“It raises many questions,” Fawell warned, “and helps explains why the corrupt party hierarchy are so determined to censor my message and campaign to protect their candidate from inquiry and debate from the people. This censorship is un-American and I think the people have had enough. Today I ask every true Republican to join with me and end the censorship of candidates by corrupt party leaders and their carpetbaggers by joining me in taking back our Republican party so we can end this corruption that is so endemic to Illinois and our great United States of America.”

ALI VELSHI PROFILES FIVE CLIMATE INITIATIVES

Ali Velshi, MSNB, and Big Ideas Panelists

Dr. Jennifer Holmgren, CEO, LanzaTech

The Explorers Club’s Climate Week Inaugural Event Focused on Big Ideas to Fight Climate Change

NEW YORK CITY, NY, USA, September 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Explorers Club is hosting a series of events throughout Climate Week, September 23rd through September 26th. The week’s programs will focus on the effects of climate change, the challenges we face in addressing trends that contribute to climate change, and potential solutions to fulfill the 2016 Paris Climate Agreement’s goal of keeping the average global temperature increase to well below 2 ̊C above pre-industrial levels. Videos of all events will be available on The Explorers Club site in coming days.

Last night’s initial program, Big Ideas, Big Impacts – Bold Climate Initiatives, began with introductory remarks (at ~15:00 on FB videostream below) from Ted Janulis, The Explorers Club’s 43rd president, and Gabriele Goettsche-Wanli, the Director of the Division for Ocean Affairs and the Law of the Sea for the United Nations’ Office of Legal Affairs. The speakers, Andrew Jones, Tom Neumann, Alexandra Cousteau, Jennifer Holmgren, and Daniel Vennard, then took the stage with the evening’s host, Ali Velshi. Mr. Velshi currently teaches at the Wharton School and has been an MSNBC anchor and business correspondent for NBC since 2016. His reporting has often focused on climate change and its impact not only on the environment, but on the global economy. Mr. Velshi introduced each of the speakers and moderated a panel discussion following the presentations.

The first speaker of the evening, Andrew Jones, is a Co-Director at Climate Interactive, a firm that has created an interactive simulation, En-ROADS, to better understand how changes in policy can affect projected temperature increases by 2100. Some of these changes would fundamentally alter how we produce and consume energy, while others—such as reducing deforestation, curbing population growth, or cutting methane emissions—would require additional policy and structural changes that transcend the energy sector. Mr. Jones’ model reveals in shocking clarity that there is no single action that can serve as a figurative silver bullet when attempting to reach the Paris Climate Agreement’s goal. “It’s silver buckshot,” he said frequently.

The second speaker of the night, Tom Neumann, is a cryospheric scientist with NASA who is the Project Scientist behind the recently launched ICESat-2. ICESat-2 is a sophisticated satellite that relies on lasers to take measurements of the Earth’s surface. It can accurately take readings of the Earth’s surface within 10 cm vertically. Such precise measurements allow NASA scientists to study changes to ice levels in the Earth’s cryosphere, which includes the coldest and most inaccessible regions of the planet, from space. The data collected by ICESat-2 does not merely measure ice levels; it reveals that the effects of climate change extend well beyond the polar regions, thereby allowing us to study these changes on a planetary scale. For Dr. Neumann, he hopes this kind of work inspires more people to foster “an appreciation of the interconnectivity of the planet.”

Alexandra Cousteau followed Dr. Neumann. She began by praising the members of The Explorers Club for being “People who treasure all the things exploration can give us.” Ms. Cousteau, the Founder of Oceans2050, then spoke about the need to transcend the conservation/sustainability paradigm, and to seek out new means to bring our oceans to their former levels of abundance. Following the birth of her daughter, she realized that environmental activism needed to focus “not on the fight for the 50 percent that’s left,” but the fight to restore the 50 percent we destroyed.

Jennifer Holmgren was the next to speak. Dr. Holmgren is the CEO of LanzaTech, a firm that has developed a means of using microbes to convert various forms of pollution, such as industrial or agricultural byproducts, into useful raw materials. These raw materials can then be used as sources of fuel in the form of ethanol or they can be converted into chemicals to then be used as the building blocks that form synthetic fibers, plastics, and rubbers. Dr. Holmgren’s company, which operates in numerous countries, participates in what is known as the circular economy, wherein resources, such as carbon, are reused to eliminate waste and to reduce the amount of fresh carbon needed to sustain the system. “We have to learn to reuse carbon,” she said, adding that, “Every carbon atom is valuable.”

The evening’s final speaker, Daniel Vennard, is the Director of the Better Buying Lab within the World Resources Institute. Mr. Vennard’s work has focused urging companies within the food services industry to take the Cool Food Pledge to cut emissions by 25 percent by 2030. The Pledge involves a three-step process that includes: learning what components within supply chains contribute to green house gas emissions, enacting policies that can better promote plant-based menu options, and spreading awareness among the public of how plant-based diets can impact the environment. The World Resources Institute expects the Pledge to impact more than 800 million meals around the world.

Tarps Now® Announces New Storm Recovery Materials

Company increases merchandising focus on natural disaster recovery

ST. JOSEPH, MICHIGAN, UNITED STATES, September 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — When natural disasters strike, homes are destroyed, jobs and lives are lost, and local economies are decimated. Even when limited storm or earthquake damage causes damage to roofing, windows, interior rooms and thresholds, ready access to heavy duty tarps can quickly provide coverage that enhances the ability to effect lasting repairs while preserving things that have not been destroyed.

To meet the ever-increasing number of natural disasters associated with climate change, leading U.S. based tarp materials supplier, Tarps Now® has substantially increased its supplies of Super Heavy Duty Tarps in anticipation of future hurricanes and other types of natural disasters that are becoming all too common in the Western Hemisphere.

KAUNAS, KAUNO, LITHUANIA, September 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — A report by Research and Markets highlights that the global modular construction market will grow from USD 112.42 billion in 2018 to USD 157.19 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 6.9%. Eurodita is positioned uniquely in the modular structure marketplace, providing traditionally designed and modern, trendy prefabricated cabins to dealers across the UK.

Sentiments among established and keenly competitive, emerging construction & housebuilding firms across the UK clearly point at diversification. The need for affordable fixed and mobile wooden homes is clearly visible. The biggest of conventional building solutions providers are now diversifying into housing options, including portable housing and offsite along with exploring more options for energy-conserving homes built from ethically sourced resources.

With the UK moving quickly to the realism of prefabricated homes, the demand for portable mobile cabins is rising. In the present scenario, the concept of portable homes is expanding, catering to the emerging, modular lifestyle. Drive-around homes have always been considered as eye-candy in the tour and travel domain where static caravan homes, trailer park housing, and on-the-move camping units are the primary focus of travellers. But current trends indicate the increasing use of semi-permanent modular structures as temporary, on-site & off-site accommodation in non-tourism sectors too, such as education, transport, health, construction, and defence.

A Globenewswire.com report says that the global cross-laminated timber market reached nearly US$664 Million in 2018, expected to reach US$1,457 Million by 2024, exhibiting 13.4% CAGR from 2019 to 2024. Glue-laminated timber is on its way to reaching a value of nearly US$ 4.2 Billion by 2024 – the Imarc Group.

CLT or Cross-laminated timber & Glulam or Glue-laminated timber (glulam) are the top trendings engineered wood products used for various types of pre-fabricated structural projects – both options becoming popular across the UK, as the demand for prefabricated mobile log homes keeps rising.

Factory-built, prefab homes address typical housing industry issues like shortage of skilled labour, environment policies, and on-speed construction. The drive for more ecologically responsible real estate projects, coupled with rising sentiments for carbon reduction and energy efficiency is routing buyers towards modular volumetric construction. Creating lesser waste and providing superior thermal insulation, many modular log homes are outperforming brick & block construction homes. They also conform more with stricter European regulations that insist on more sustainable development and reduced carbon emissions.

A report by Pin-sent Masons states that adoption of modular home construction across the UK has been comparatively slower as compared to nations like Germany or Sweden. Among the 200,000 homes built every year in the UK, only 15,000 are modular but this number is expected to rise. This includes modular log homes being used as ‘tiny’ homes – a growing concept across the UK. Kit-based tiny homes, such a modular log cabin unit, with a floor footprint of nearly 200 square feet is getting a lot of attention. Trailer beds or tiny home trailers are also becoming more common. This is stimulating the need for mobile home options. Also referred to as the micro-home industry in the UK, this might have some answers to the overcrowded parts of Britain.

Compared to the traditional house construction methods, Eurodita mobile home manufacturing procedure combines highly mechanised processes and computerised controls to deliver high quality, reliable, and efficient log cabins. Insight from AMA Research Prefabricated Volumetric Buildings Market Report, UK 2018-2022, clearly highlights temporary accommodation [like log cabin homes] getting more traction from industrial and construction sites and even across outdoor event management landscapes.

High sustainability log homes mean that the design, floor plan and weather-proofing is at par with typical buildings. These movable, pocket-sized homes are easy to haul and come with more relaxations in terms of housing compliances. Many of these mobile homes are emerging as the preference among RV lot owners and campsite managers – as sublet, vacation properties.

With the growing popularity of wooden cabins and log vacation homes in the UK, housing solutions dealers are seeking affordable but compact-sized homes, stimulating the growth of prefabricated housing. Factory-built housing is also a more efficient way of speeding up the construction. Similarly, the rise of semi-permanent school classrooms is boosting the demand for eco-friendlier, more energy-saving modular buildings. Such trends underline the scope for more business opportunities as long as log home dealers can provide end-users realistically priced and high-quality options.

Eurodita uses fine engineering to create lightweight yet durable outhouses, annexes, and lovable pods that are easy to move around using standard hauling or towing methods. The company is now leading the marketplace with its widening range of prefab log structures and timber solutions which are highly affordable and promote green living.
