Audubon Schmodubon

I used to be a member of Audubon Society, in fact, up until 2021. We are a funky lot of people who devote time and energy into identifying, feeding, studying and talking about birds. Our back deck is usually a minor mess, as birds are not careful when feed is available. It is a tiered ecosystem where birds at the highest perch use their beaks to scatter seed below, looking for the most desirable morsel. Down below birds that are ground feeders hunt and peck. Seed that ends up below the deck accumulates until a doe or buck passes by.

Why, I was asked, do we care about these species? “Unconditional love” was the only answer I could muster. They show no gratitude, in fact do not even know we are caring for them. A bird pecking away at a seed bell strung from a wire has no clue he is not on a tree, one with abundant mealy worms.

While a resident of Montana I participated in the annual Audubon Christmas Bird Count. Our group of people would walk an eight-mile stretch of the Yellowstone River, where species and counts were many and high. As a CPA, my job was to keep track of all of that so that at the end of the day when we gathered at Helen Carlson’s home for homemade stew and Christmas treats, we could entertain each other with our exploits of the day. I remember one year when maybe thirty of us were held in rapt attention by a man who knew how to play the room. He prolonged his story about how he spotted and finally identified a certain bird, and with expert timing finally did the big reveal … he had seen a Varied Thrush, a rare sighting. There was a palpable exhaling of breath in the room. We were stunned, and he was front and center, a man of the moment.

I participated in our local Evergreen Audubon in various outings, walking along the shores of the Platte River, and in 2019 did the Christmas Bird Count, me and a friend, Mike. We started out at a local feeder, and since we were a group, I took no credit for sightings, knowing that someone would account. When a young man who turned out to be quite an expert asked the group if we would mind if he “Psst”, I misunderstood. “We’re all guys here, no problem,” I said. But “Psst”ing is something else, making that sound to draw birds closer. Many consider it bad manners, as birds should only be seen and enjoyed without any human interference. I was not aware.

Mike and I had a long day, and at the end walked a long corridor down to Beaver Creek reservoir. We saw only two birds, which I labeled crows. No, said our “Psst”er friend. Those were not crows. They were ravens. As I told our group leader, I was not of much use, seeing only two birds the entire day, and misidentifying them.

2020 was a different story. The organizer for the Bird Count made it clear that all participants would be masked all day long. “Bullshit!” said I, not willing to submit to such insanity. Even if masking had a purpose beyond psychological conditioning, we were outdoors! But no. I was asked the damning question in my refusal, “Do you trust scientists?” Why should I trust anyone? I have a brain, I can think for myself. I indeed trust many people who have talent and skills, civil engineers, for example. But public health officials with a hidden agenda? No way.

2021 saw the worst of it. Evergreen Audubon announced that no member could participate in any sanctioned activity unless that member was vaccinated. I emailed them, suggesting that the great bison and wildebeest herds would not exist if there were such a thing as pathogenic viruses. In return, the Sound of Silence. I resigned Audubon, after 20+ years. These are crazy folks, I always understood. I was part of that delightful craziness. But crazy, stupid and scared? Enough. I was done.

Wind Power and Birds

Properly sited wind power can help protect birds from climate change.

By National Audubon Society
July 21, 2020

Audubon strongly supports wind energy that is sited and operated properly to avoid, minimize, and mitigate effectively for the impacts on birds, other wildlife, and the places they need now and in the future. To that end, we support the development of wind energy to achieve 100% clean electricity.

Did I mention that word, “stupid”? Windmills are bird choppers, and the bigger, more glamorous species are hardest hit. These are our raptors, accipiters, owls, high flying birds whose internal timing cannot calculate the speed of a turbine blade. They are being decimated. Audubon approves.

This article makes note of something I have long noticed, that large environmental groups are most often mere magnets to attract activists and defang them. Audubon, in terms of preserving large bird species, is now officially useless. When I first became active in wilderness preservation, I deliberately avoided The Wilderness Society, a national group where I knew I would drown. Instead I chose Montana Wilderness Association, a local group that was doing useful work (at that time). “Think globally, act locally” was the catchphrase. But none but a few of us are really equipped to think globally. All we can do is to act locally.

One of the worst examples is a large national group known as the Sierra Club, whose members have unknowingly been whored out to the fossil fuel industry, and shamelessly used as a vehicle to shut down the nuclear power industry in California. That state now has one remaining nuclear plant, Diablo, and I read where it too is on its way out, to be replaced by solar panels. Good luck with that, you f****** morons.

Audubon, Shmodubon, a big and well-financed tool used to fight the very purpose for which it claims to exist. As with Sierra Club, I am proud not to belong.

  1. Hi Mark, very apt video showing the “care” these nimrods have for wildlife…nice analogy about the bison and wildebeest…I remember your post from 2020 about the masks and vaxx…what? Mystifying how “nature” people could be so disconnected from the nature we inhabit, but there it is.

    1. Speaking of which, this photo, somewhat blurrier than the original, was taken by our grandson last summer using a telescope with his iPhone attached to it. The bird was a long way away, maybe a football field. He caught it just as it landed treetop. We were in Yellowstone.

      The idea behind the scope and iPhone attachment is to view wildlife without their awareness. We were viewing two eagles, and as we did so, other tourists decided to walk to get a closer look, and spooked them.

  3. Gorgeous photos.

    Masks and vax? How sadly indoctrinated. So sorry this BS has been responsible for terminating your membership, Mark.

    While wind turbines have an impact on birds, have you researched the impact of traditional energy fuels on birds and other fauna? Do you have reason to believe that wind turbine impact is worse than traditional-fuel impacts? The video didn’t actually suggest banning wind turbines but making them “bird smart”:
    https://abcbirds.org/program/wind-energy-and-birds/bird-smart-strategies/

    I used to be a climate-change and environmental activist but have essentially just switched to psyops now. I don’t have the same feeling for the wilderness as you obviously have, Mark, for me it’s more from a mental viewpoint, “I can see what’s happening is wrong and things need to be done about it,” and I envy your natural feeling. Sure, I’ll go bushwalking from time to time but I just don’t have that organic feeling for nature you obviously have because if I did I’d certainly spend more time in it than I do.

    I haven’t really put much forward about climate change because I wonder – considering that it’s now clear to me how fraudulent medical science is – if I’ve got it wrong on man-made climate change and I haven’t gone back to check if I still think the same way so I’ll leave it there for the moment. However, regardless of climate change I think overall renewables are a better option than fossil fuel energy sources and I find it hard to believe that wind turbines have more of a deleterious effect on the wilderness than traditional forms of energy.

    Just to add, just as whatever percentage of scientists supporting the existence of covid now means nothing to me, the 97% consensus of scientists on man-made climate change didn’t really play a role in my thinking. My first thought before I even looked was, “Yes, I remember learning at school that CO2 was a trace gas in the atmosphere that kept us warm so if you muck around with something that has a significant impact at a trace level (say, like iron in the blood) it’s probably going to cause a problem.” Then when I started learning about it, I’d always look at the debunking arguments as much as possible and what the response to them was.

    Back in 2009 when I first became familiar with the concept of man-made climate change the Australian mainstream media was totally against it, it was always pushing debunking arguments (still does to a much lesser degree) especially as Australia has significant coal and gas reserves. I realise that my method to determine the truth of something where my knowledge is limited is to follow the argument back and forth which I think, in the situation of limited knowledge, is really the best way. Yes, we all have brains but we don’t all have knowledge in particular areas so I think, where our knowledge is lacking, it’s best to rely on guidance through an argument rather than assessing based on a very limited foundation of knowledge. I can’t tell if scientists have isolated a virus from a scientific paper simply using my own brain, I need guidance and if someone can point out how what scientists claim has no validity and the scientists themselves have no comeback to defend their “science”, it’s pretty straightforward, isn’t it?

    1. I suspect you under-trust your own abilities, an after-effect of our schooling where everything is centered around trust in authority figures. Yes, it is hard work to grasp the concepts behind climate, the hardest for me climate sensitivity, where skeptics have mathematically proven that a doubling of CO2 in the atmosphere has an initially significant impact, but that it quickly diminishes to the point where it barely matters, sensitivity so close to 1.00 (neutral) that we can safely say the threat posed by CO2 is insignificant. There is also the greening effect of CO2, highly beneficial. Over the eons, cold is our enemy, not warmth. Our current interglacial period, the holocene, is peppered with warming periods, the names of which suggest that civilization advances as glaciers retreat – the Minoan, Medieval (a time when Vikings farmed Greenland and grapes were grown in Northern England), the Roman and current Modern, with each period less warm than the one before. Interglacial periods typically last 10-15,000 years, and we are beyond 10,000 years in the Holocene.

      I quickly learned (after a period where I too believed the scam) that there was an unstated agenda behind climate change, most painfully obvious in their efforts to end the use of nuclear energy, which produces no CO2. It does not take a genius to understand that this is why the fossil fuel industry has been neutralized in the battle, as they are financing that effort to demonize nuclear. Nuclear is our answer if indeed CO2 were a problem, but instead it has been under powerful attack from hidden sources. Wind and solar will never be close to enough, leaving us with … you got it … fossil fuels.

      There is also a racist agenda behind climate change, a deep-seated fear that the continent of Africa will awaken. As with Gates and AIDS, Africa is targeted by the hoaxers, refusing to finance the very best sources of energy, nuclear, oil and natural gas to make electricity. Instead they are limited to wind and solar, and good luck with that.

      In the links provided here there are many climate sources, but for me I got my best start by reading a selection of the Climategate emails, highly revealing of dishonest people with an unstated agenda, financed and backed by “closeted” friends (Michael Mann’s word).

    2. Petra,

      There’s no fossil fuels so using that term is misleading. Oil is abiotic. Research it. There’s no dinosaurs either. It’s a complete hoax, as is Darwinism. We don’t evolve, we adapt. It’s quite different. Monkeys are not related to humans. The DNA scam is just one of many in the science and medicine field.

      The move to renewables and the climate emergency fraud is 1) to ration energy 2) so people cannot start new businesses or create wealth, 3) inducing more dependence on the state, leading to 4) forced vaccination, which assists in the 5) depopulation and sterilization agenda.

      Also there are added bonuses to the rationing energy scam which is already a global monopoly by the controllers. 6) SMART meters, WIFI, SMART devices and 5g antennas are a soft kill program that also can 7) track what you do in and out of your house, so the cartel can amass data on people’s energy consumption and habits, thus 8) exploiting them more.

      Another important aspect to the rationing and controlling of energy and the switch to electric versus carbon fuels is the ability the controllers have to 8) limit travel for individuals, (you won’t be able to plug your car into a charging station without the new SMART ID card) and 9) flying will eventually become a privilege only for the billionaires and their minions.

      Rationing energy and switching to different sources creates more 10) racketeering opportunities with the “green” energy scams, NGOs and corporations, and lastly and most importantly, the faux climate emergency and rationing of energy for the sake of the planet enables the psychopaths in control 11) take back the commons, 12) all private property and 13) stack people into mega regions, SMART cities, in high density housing.

      Agenda 21-The Great Reset is at its core, a global land grab and an attempt to take all property, assets and land away from the public and force everyone into a 14) rentier economy and licensing economy. The WEF call it moving from a linear economy to a circular economy. It’s 100% garbage. It’s exploitation and slavery, not more efficient.

      The climate change fraud and the fake pandemic achieves all the goals listed above, and more.

  5. So, what do we need all this “new” energy for anyway? More video gaming, more streaming old movies, more refrigerators with built-in wifi, electric cars, and most electricity-sucking of all: data farming.

    Energy production has environmental and health costs. Mining always leaves a wasteland and irreversible ecological damage. Uranium mining, coal mining, timber mining, oil and gas drilling (tub mine) all have a downside that are seldom considered, hardly ever analyzed for net energy output, cost benefit and other basic tools used to arrive at a common-sense judgment (discernment).

    I am currently fighting to stop Montana’s first nuclear power plant. If global warming is not an issue, what good is the primary argument for it: “It’s carbon free.” I would argue strongly that carbon free mining, uranium processing, nuclear plant construction, and (highly toxic) nuclear waste transport and storage simply does not exist. It’s a fiscal loser every step of the way, all the way to decommissioning the useless carcass once it’s use-by date expires. Am I forgetting something?

    2. In addition to not having an inner defense mechanism against those damn things, a lot of birds migrate or fly around during the night, when they might just not be able to see the blades until it’s too late. Then there are days of heavy fog, or other bad weather conditions, that can severely limit visibility, many variables are involved year round. Some species may even be attracted by moving glittering objects in the distance and they could approach for closer inspection.

Come to find out, with the aid of the Audubon Society “https://www.audubon.org/field-guide/bird/acorn-woodpecker”, that those cute birdies have an appropriate name… and if you can’t see the acorns in my low-res picture, there is a nice photo in the gallery provided on that site, as well as much better pictures of the woodpeckers.

    Take a look around while you’re there, and see how many places on the site are promoting climate change / global warming, just like any other so-called environmental organization. You can even plug yourself into some modeling program to see what climate change will mean for your favorite birdy!

    All of the feel-good movements, whether they be environmental groups, or social justice causes, or “free the Ukrainians”, etc., are perfect instruments for the promotion of infectious disease, global warming hysteria, and a manufactured one-world sensibility that cries out for the protection of all global citizens via global agreement and rule.

      1. Many birds can turn their heads 180 degrees. Trees can make fungicides to plug those small oval like wounds and prevent decay.

        1. Head on backwards. An attempt at humor 🙂

          The tree is dead. That’s why it’s easy for woody to make the holes.
