MORRISON: It Will Never Happen - or will it?

OPINION -- If you have not seen the map of the United States showing the simulated biodiversity reserves and corridors, I would urge you to obtain one. It is imperative you understand the plan as we see it coming to fruition.
On the maps, core reserves and corridors with little to no human use are shown in red. Yellow signifies the buffer zones or land with highly regulated use. Light green shows the normal use of "zones of cooperation." Black dots indicate the cities and municipalities.
When looking at the maps, red and yellow are the colors that jump out at you. There is very little green. What does this mean?
According to "Environmental Perspectives", in the June 25, 1993 issue of Science, the biodiversity plan "is nothing less than the transformation of America to an archipelago of human-inhabited islands surrounded by natural areas."
According to the Wildlands Project, "One half of the land area of the 48 conterminous [united] states will be encompassed in core [wilderness] reserves and inner corridor zones within the next few decades.
"Half of a region in wilderness is a reasonable guess of what it will take to restore viable populations of large carnivores and natural disturbance regimes, assuming that most of the other 50 percent is managed intelligently as buffer zone." (1992 Reed Noss, Editor of Conservation Biology)
1992 is significant in this plan, as that was the year the Earth Summit met in Rio de Janerio and Al Gore wrote his book Earth in the Balance.
Even the terminologies we use have changed since that year. President Bill Clinton appointed his Presidentís Council on Sustainable Development and the UN Agenda 21 was introduced.
The map was drawn under the supervision of a Ph.D in ecology and follows instructions provided by the Wildlands Project, the UN/US Man and Biosphere Program (MAB) and the rapidly increasing control within U.S. counties through the UN/US Heritage programs.
It is understandable why some of the vast western states would be declared "wilderness" in this program, but what is not so understandable is seeing large red spots in Florida indicating areas that will eventually be uninhabited and destined to become wild lands with buffers.
My first thought was, "That's impossible." There is no way they will be able to vacate Florida. Anyone who has ever driven on I-75, I-95 or I-10 in early winter has to wonder how everyone is going to fit in Florida.
Disney struck a goldmine with the development of Disney World and the money millions of vacationing people bring to the Orlando area each year. Ocochobee is known as a fishermanís delight. Florida is a paradise and the people will not give it up easily.
Or will they?
Living through three major hurricanes in one season this year could certainly dampen the good times and is likely not to be soon forgotten. Not only have they taken a physical hit, emotionally these people have been torn into shreds, as their lives have been totally disrupted. These scars will take a long time to heal.
When disasters happen, people on cancer treatments or dialysis are endangered. The old, handicapped, helpless and homeless are threatened. Children who were once secure now know fear.
Those who live part time in Florida may not find it nearly as attractive to return now that the wrath of the hurricanes has been unleashed and their property has been damaged. Those who depend on tourism may not financially make it this year and may be forced to make changes.
We are told about people who live in the Everglades area being flooded following the diversion of the drainage system. We hear about alligators and endangered Florida panthers being found in residential areas and lurking around school yards.
Is there a move to "clear Florida?" Is a Wildlands Program really underway there?
Explanation of the Biodiversity Treaty and the Wildlands Project speaks a language the lay person will not understand.
In other words, there are only a few places where people can live and work in a Biosphere. The mapís green areas would indicate there would still be a few orange groves and truck farms and maybe some cattle ranches will be left.
Miama, Tampa, and all the other major cities will remain in tact but will most likely be ruled under Smart Growth planning which is a design of the U.N. The major tourist draws will still be there, but places like the Everglades will no longer be inhabited as it will be restored to a wild lands or wilderness area.
Tom McDonnell, Director of Natural Resources at American Sheep Industry Assn., Dr. Michael Coffman, a Director of Maine Conservation Rights Institute, and a regional director for the Alliance for America, Henry Lamb of Environmental Conservation Organization, (http://www.sovereignty.net/p/land/biotreatystop.htm) were the brave men who stepped forward and worked diligently to inform legislators what this United Nations Biodiversity treaty meant and at the very last minute Congress voted not to sign the UN/US Man and Biosphere Program treaty. But people more powerful than our elected officials have implemented this program as though our Congress had signed it.
The flood of 1993 in the Midwest is a reminder of the use of nature to change a pattern of how an area is inhabited. The flood moved thousands of families away from the Mighty Mississippi corridor when the government bought them out and allowed no new building in the determined flood plain.
It wasnít difficult. Once people have lived through a flood, most donít want to ever have to relive such an experience, so they leave willingly. However, there were those who wanted to stay in the floodplain, but were not permitted to do so and that should raise some questions.
A small article in Popular Science magazine in 1993 attracted a lot of attention. The article told of a new project in Alaska that was sending electro-magnetic waves into the ionosphere. Airplanes were restricted from that area.
The normal pattern is for the air wave patterns to flow from west to east. Spring and early summer rains are expected, but scientists say what happened in 1993 was not normal. While drought conditions were being experienced on the East Coast, the Midwest was getting torrential rains as the air masses seemed to just stop.
The project was called High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP). Very little information could be found about this research project at that time, but now there is an abundance of information. The HAARP homepage is: http://www.haarp.alaska.edu/. There you will see pictures of the high frequency electro-magnetic fields where the equipment is located.
The Mississippi River Heritage Corridor has been on the drawing table for years. Making it truly a "Heritage Corridor" would mean removing the majority of the people who live along the river. One simple way to remove people from this corridor to fit into the biodiversity plan would be to flood them out.
Do we now have research programs that can actually control or change our weather patterns? I have no idea. I do know that in the past 12 years I have witnessed transformations that I would have said previously, "It will never happen."
