“Theory of Change” we don’t believe in!

I’ve identified a webpage at the “Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation” that qualifies as a summary of how the NGO’s used the UN and their own puppets at NOAA/NMFS, to push through the catch shares scam. Under an umbrella of “Reforming Fisheries Management”.

In it, they explain a couple of tools that were designed for this initiative  Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) and Reforming Fisheries Management (RFM). They also mention that they funded the first Step by Step Guide to MSP, published by UNESCO in 2009. I’ve found a copy if this guide, and I hope to be reporting further on it in the near future.  The Moore Foundation partnered with the David & Lucile Packard Foundation on this project.

For now I will share with you one interesting link buried in this UNESCO guide. Catch shares are an “important” part of this MSP strategy. Here is the Moore/Packard/UN checklist for reasons that you might be interested in MSP:

Bring on the Cuccinelli Principle (American Thinker)

On the surface, it may not seem like an important topic for the grassroots at Fishery Nation. I’ve been examining the takeover of the government by leftists for years now, and this topic makes perfect sense to me, and it related directly to the crisis we are in.

It’s all about “fighting big, lawbreaking government”, and this is why I’m here.

Here are some excerpts from this great essay, that I think should hit home for us all.

“Unlike many other state attorneys general who sometimes swarm like wolf packs against only the private sector, Cuccinelli takes a more even-handed approach to tackling lawbreaking in both the private sector and government.”

Cuccinelli’s biggest problem in enforcing the law on government is a legal system that has come to be flawed and even corrupt in how it too often protects government lawbreaking.”

Why “Catch Shares”?

A.) Just in case any moonbat offspring would like to become commercial fisherfolk one day!

One of the early steps to pushing through the catch shares scam, was adopting an “EAF” (ecosystems approach to fisheries).

The following paragraph that I found in a document posted at the UN sticks out. These marching orders came from the UN (and the NGO’s who control same). From “PART I The human context for an ecosystem approach to fisheries

Individuals and societies also value ecosystems for what they represent for the future. Some may value today the knowledge that their grandchildren will benefit from these services and others value having resources available in the case they become necessary for their direct use in the future (referred to as “option value”). In addition, some value the services independently of anyone’s current or future uses of these services (“existence values”). This category represents a philosophical value of the inherent right of ecosystems and communities to exist now and in the future. This perhaps vague but very important value can reflect the idea that each part of the ecosystem exists for a reason, whether we are aware of the reason or not, and therefore should be valued as part of the ecosystem.

I hope that makes you all feel better. Just in case Thurston Howell XII decides to work for a living someday in the future decades (maybe he likes to fish), NOAA needs fleet reductions. NOW.

This explanation makes more sense than anything NOAA will spout off about.

Gulf of Maine – Planned fisheries closure leaves locals reeling

Yankee Fisherman Cooperative said the pending “consequence closure” of a section of the Gulf of Maine starting Oct. 1 will significantly impact the co-op and could potentially put it out of business,,,,,,,,,,,,,,U.S. Commerce Department has declared a “disaster” in the Northeast groundfishing industry,,,,, Hampton fisherman David Goethel said the closure will be devastating for the Yankee Fisherman Cooperative and the fishermen of New Hampshire, as the majority of the fleet are gillnetters.

“This is the biggest time a year for them,” said Goethel. “This is when they catch their pollock. There is no other time in the year they can get them.”

“Runnin’ Through the Archives” with jj the fisherman. American Style Environmentalism is Destroying The Environment Part 3 (“The Environmental Watchdog” A Portrait Inspired By Ocean Industrial Zoning)

This illustrates a view of what is happening to the ocean today. The Presidential order that delivered control of the ocean to the PEW Energy Group and for the first time in history created, “Single Use Zoning,” for the benefit of industrialists who would like a chance to exploit this new peice of watery real estate that used to be a wilderness area. Of course I do not believe that the ocean should belong to anyone but like the indians on the plains my people have been swept away by a rising tide of greed as multi-national corporations and the foundations of their proud owners look to the ocean as one of the few avenues of wealth acquisition and revenue growth available to them. I fear for the wildlife that was the excuse for these drastic measures. Artwork is interpretive so I will not say anymore about it but this…..It was with great reluctance that I placed our President’s head on that poo-fly. As the signer of the order that created Ocean Real Estate he earned it.
