Good Grief, Fireworks Canceled in Oregen Town Not Because of Heat & Dry Conditions … Canceled Amid Concearns for Sea Birds, Brandt’s Cormorant
UNREAL … FIREWORKS CANCELED BECAUSE THEY ARE SCARING BIRDS.
Fireworks in the coastal town of Depoe Bay were canceled this year for the first time in 19 years since the town started the tradition in 1993. Were the fireworks canceled because of the dry conditions and fires like what has plagued Colorado? Nope. Were they canceled like many towns and cities in the mid-Atlantic states due to damage from recent extreme weather? Nope. The fireworks were actually canceled amid concerns for sea birds.
The coastal town of Depoe Bay is about to experience its quietest July 3 in 19 years.
Town officials this year reluctantly announced they were cancelling the annual pre-Independence Day fireworks show, following pressure from federal wildlife managers who said the noise disrupts protected sea birds.
Business owners, dependent on the popular show for foot traffic, are not happy.
“It’s a great loss to our community,” said Peggy Leoni, co-owner of Trollers Lodge, a small motel in Depoe Bay.

Canada and its Conservative government to pull out of the Kyoto Protocol, eh. With as hypocritical as the Kyoto Protocol is in not applying any standards to China, India and Brazil, how could anyone with a straight face think that Kyoto is beneficial?
Canada will announce next month that it will formally withdraw from the Kyoto Protocol, CTV News has learned.
The Harper government has tentatively planned an announcement for a few days before Christmas, CTV’s Roger Smith reported Sunday evening.
The developments come as Environment Minister Peter Kent prepares for a climate conference in Durban, South Africa that opens on Monday, with delegates from 190 countries seeking a new international agreement for cutting emissions.
The Greenies and environmental critics in the Great White North go mental …
Green Party Leader Elizabeth May called the move “a very damaging act of sabotage.”
“It will reverberate around the world,” May told CTV. “Canada will be a pariah globally if it goes through with this.”
The accord is set to expire next year.
Hollywood Actress Daryl Hannah Arrested at White House for Protesting President Obama’s lack of Greenness
Wasn’t Daryl Hannah arrested in the movie ‘Splash’ (Video: 4:05) too?
Hollywood actress Daryl Hannah was arrested today outside the White House for taking part in an ongoing protest against the unbuilt Keystone XL oil pipeline. I guess Barack Obama is not green enough for the former Mermaid.According to accounts there were about 100 people arrested today protesting Obama’s energy policies.
“Sometimes it’s necessary to sacrifice your freedom for a greater freedom,” Hannah said in Lafayette Park before her arrest. “And we want to be free from the horrible death and destruction that fossil fuels cause, and have a clean energy future.”
With dozens of others, Hannah sat on the sidewalk in front of the White House and refused three requests from the Park Police to move.
The group organizing the protest, Tar Sands Action, has said the Keystone pipeline — which will stretch from Canada to the Gulf — is among the most important environmental decisions that confront the president.

Although I probably agree with little of Daryl Hannah, I will give her this … she walks the walk, unlike hypocrites like Al Gore who claim they are green, tell others that they need to be green and then gets on his Leer jet. Hannah lives, breathes and walks “green” and for that I do have to give her kudos, even though she is a little misguided. Good for her in not being a profiteering hypocrite like the Gore’s of the world.
YIKES … OBAMA CALLED A F’N TRAITOR!!!
Peter Fonda called President Barack Obama a “TRAITOR” in the handling of the post BP oil spill. It’s pretty bad when the far LEFT is turning on Barack Obama. I wonder if VP Biden whispered in Obama’s ear that this is a “big F’n deal?” Is this the start of Obama losing his base and the Left becoming disillusioned? As much as the MSM wants to portray the GOP in trouble for not having a clear Presidential candidate for 2012 … it is all just a smoke screen for the apathy and disillusion of the LEFT of Obama, his campaign promises and policies. As Jammie Wearing Fool states, how will this go over in Hollywood?
Peter Fonda launched a four-letter attack on US President Barack Obama at the Cannes film festival on Wednesday, calling him a traitor over the handling of the aftermath of the Gulf oil spill.
Fonda — a keen environmentalist and co-producer of the film which centres on the explosion of the BP oil rig Deepwater Horizon, the ensuing spill and its consequences — accused Washington of trying to gag reporting on the issue.
“I sent an email to President Obama saying, ‘You are a f(expletive) traitor,’ using those words… ‘You’re a traitor, you allowed foreign boots on our soil telling our military — in this case the coastguard — what they can and could not do, and telling us, the citizens of the United States, what we could or could not do’.”
LOL, what Weasel Zippers said.
Imagine how the MSM would be covering this story if someone on the RIGHT made such a comment?
The So Called Eco-Friendly President Barack “GREEN” Obama Celebrates Earth Day by Burning 53,000 Gallons of Jet Fuel
HEY BARACK … IT AIN’T EASY BEING GREEN. Especially when one doesn’t even try. The Obama hypocrisy continues.
President Barack Obama celebrated Earth Day why burning 53,000 gallons of jet fuel while telling us “little people” that we must sacrifice and be “green”. However, the do as I say, not as I do President tells us all to get fuel efficient hybrids and electric cars so that he can fly around on our dime. Its not as though Barack Obama was flying to see the US troops or conducting business of the United States, Obama burned this fuel so that he could conduct fund raising. What are the odds that Obama will be buying some carbon credits for All Gore? Of course he could not be reached for comment, rumor has it he was on his private jet as well.
President Obama declared today’s 41st annual Earth Day proof of America’s ecological and conservation spirit—then completed a three-day campaign-style trip logging 10,666 miles on Air Force One, eating up some 53,300 gallons at a cost of about $180,000. And that doesn’t include the fuel consumption of his helicopter, limo, or the 29 other vehicles that travel with that car.
“Green” is for thee, not for me. if it is not bad enough that Obama made no effort to conserve anything on earth day, including the hot air from his mouth by having the audacity to preach to the peons about Earth Day. Of course Obama’s stewardship and sacrifice was what exactly?
Obama proclaimed: “For over 40 years, our nation has come together on Earth Day to appreciate and raise awareness about our environment, natural heritage, and the resources upon which generations of Americans have depended. Healthy land and clean water and air are essential to the health of our communities and wildlife. Earth Day is an opportunity to renew America’s commitment to preserving and protecting the state of our environment through community service and responsible stewardship.”
Over at Michelle Malkin.com, they remind us of just how concerned Obama was with “Earth Day” with pics of litter from his 2009 inauguration. Aptly stated by Jammie Wearing Fool, let’s hope that we can make Obama’s words come to fruition about trading in gas guzzling, inefficient, burdens, namely Barack Obama in 2012.
Wait it gets better, not to be outdone by her jet fuel guzzling husband, Michelle Obama cancelled her Earth Day event due to a light drizzle. Oh those crazy ”GREEN” Obama’s. I wonder if she would have cancelled a vacation for the same reason?
