So says Bruce Krasting a former hedge fund manager.

The following was a disclaimer in small print at the bottom of the home page for UNC at Chapel Hill’s, Environmental Finance Center:
“The Environmental Finance Center is a program within the UNC School of Government. EFC receives funding from a variety of sources, including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the NC Department of Environment and Natural Resources.”
And you do not have to look far to find the S word either…”sustainable” they list the following as their mission:
“The UNC EFC is dedicated to enhancing the ability of governments to provide environmental programs and services in fair, effective and financially sustainable ways.
After years of tireless research they are finally prepared to float a new theory out there to local municipalities. Now bear in mind this is based on the latest research available and is arguably controversial. But the UNC Environmental Finance Center theorizes that: IF utilities charge higher prices for water, THEN their customers will use less. There i’ve said it. The cat is out of the bag, Pandora’s box has been opened, you can’t get the genie back in the bottle etc. etc. They call this theory: Conservation Oriented Rates. Gaspee Gazette will continue to read the The Environmental Finance Center’s 2009 report for all other groundbreaking, earth shattering theories about controlling… I mean managing, our water usage. Thanks to ICLEI’s southeast page for turning me on to this group.
SOURCE: ASSOCIATED PRESS: CENTER FOR BIOLOGICAL DIVERSITY HAS FILED SUIT AGAINST EPA: SUIT SEEKS TO FORCE EPA TO PREVENT LEAD POISNING OF WILDLIFE FROM SPENT AMMUNITION AND LOST FISHING TACKLE
You may remember Gaspee Gazette covered this story previously when back in August the EPA denied a petition from The Center for Biological Diversity, and other environmental groups, for the EPA to institute a nationwide ban on lead based ammunition. You can read that post here:
. The EPA denied the ammunition part of the petition, saying it didn’t have authority to do so under the Toxic Substances Control Act.
I have heard Tera Servatious on WBT 1110 say before that we need to be praying for the arteries of Supreme Court Justices: Roberts, Scalia, Thomas, and Alito everyday. Because the ability to purchase or manufacture lead ammunition will soon be resting on these 4 men’s shoulders.
Mexican citizens will soon be eligible to apply for a “trusted traveler” status that will allow them to bypass some elements of airport security when they fly into the United States —
Shout out to vehoae and her Still Standing blog for posting about this Fox News story.
While US citizen’s are being scanned into Homeland Security porno movies, or fondled, non-citizens get “zeer paperz” and go right through!
Gaspee Gazette has already asked this question in a former post linked below.
However on December 20th Rep. McHenry sent out an email inviting people to take a Congressional Oversight Poll. There were only 4 choices available and bringing the Czar’s to DC was not one of them. Rep. McHenry’s email states:
“Incoming House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) recently put out a report detailing the responsibilities of Congress to be a watchdog for the Executive Branch. In his report, Chairman Issa noted that the Oversight and Government Reform Committee requested 61% less information and held 21% fewer hearings than they did before the election of President Obama.”
These Czar’s and their radical communist/socialist ideas, having open access to the power of the Executive branch of the most powerful government in the world, is a clear and present danger to the ideals of our country, and our constitution. Please call Rep. McHenry and ask him if he will make good on his promise to bring the Czar’s to justice.
