NOOOOO!

Why not build it AWAY from the River? Why Build the asphalt plant in that location? There are MANY, MANY other places it could be built!
Over and Over again we hear in the local Newspapers how “the marijuana growers are polluting the streams and using all the water”… We never hear about the ever expanding reservoirs, the industrial logging operations which are turning the Emerald Triangle into a desert, we never hear about all those industrial wastelands which sit on the banks of the Eel River as relics of a bygone era when all the trees were clear cut from our watersheds and drug through the creeks and floated down the rivers to the mills….. all schemes which enriched the pockets of “out of County Investors and banks” at the expense of the loss of entire Old Growth Redwood Ecosystems, – hardly worth the pennies made when looked back upon in hindsight.  This quarry and asphalt plant is just another example of a bygone era… building an asphalt plant on one of the Last remaining coho streams in the US, the Outlet Creek is the Headwaters of the Eel River it flows from Willits to “Legal Bridge” on Covelo Road, this quarry sits on Covelo Road, not Grist Creek, the name is meant to persuade you to think the quarry isn’t on the Eel River, but the Asphalt Plant sits on the headwaters, that means any contaminates will harm the entire river ecosystem all the way to Humboldt County…  let’s get real, already up to 50% of the summer flows of the Eel River  water  is stolen to grow wine grapes in Sonoma County by means: via the Van Arsdale Dam, Lake Pillsbury. Over half of the Eel River water is STOLEN and diverted to the Russian River for thirsty wine grapes…. Not Food. The hundreds of thousands of Wine-grapes use way more water than all the Marijuana Gardens in the Entire State!
Let’s Stop Being Fooled by these Politicians!
Return the Natural Flows to the Eel River!
Stop ANY and ALL Industrial Land Use Along the Eel River!

Mendocino County was the first to outlaw GMO Cultivation of ALL CROPS!

With the latest findings about the Cancer and Disease Causing effects of Glyphosate and Roundup.
Join us in eliminating herbicide use and sales entirely in Mendocino County in 2015 by supporting an immediate ban on herbicide use and sales in Mendocino County.

The cancer-research arm of the World Health Organization last week announced that glyphosate, the world’s most widely used herbicide, is probably carcinogenic to humans.1 But the assessment, by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in Lyon, France, has been followed by an immediate backlash from industry groups.

On 23 March, Robb Fraley, chief technology officer at the agrochemical company Monsanto in St Louis, Missouri, which sells much of the world’s glyphosate, accused the IARC of “cherry picking” data. “We are outraged…

A [2007 study] in the journal Neurology is being hailed as unassailable proof that marijuana is a valuable medicine. It is a sad commentary on the state of modern medicine — and US drug policy — that we still need “proof” of something that medicine has known for 5,000 years.

Climate Change, Drought Likely Means Marijuana Grown In California Will Be More Potent Says CBS News

CBS NEWS SCREEN SHOT

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – A warming climate could boost the medicinal and psychoactive properties of plants including cannabis, that according to experts.

The Daily Climate reports, climate change could also play a huge role in the number of people growing marijuana on public lands, which would put increased strain on the ecosystem.

Lewis Ziska, a plant physiologist with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Research Service, said his research shows that marijuana grown outdoors will likely become stronger and require less water to thrive. He said a small portion of plant species have adapted to lower carbon dioxide levels, but most including marijuana, still feel deprived.

Retired USDA ethno-botanist James Duke said that when plants are stressed, like is often the case during a drought, they tend to exhibit more of their medicinal properties.

This all comes as the marijuana market becomes more and more crowded in Northern California and the state continues to deal with a drought. California’s so-called Emerald Triangle [marijuana growing counties of Mendocino, Humboldt, Trinity] has seen a doubling of pot production from 2009 to 2012, that according to a 2014 California Department of Fish and Wildlife study.

The massive amounts of water these growers are using has wildlife biologists concerned about what this will mean for fish and wildlife habitat, aquatic life and water quality in the area.
