Pat Cleary and Humboldt Area Foundation

The Humboldt Consequential has a must read expose on the goings on with Pat Cleary and the Humboldt Area Foundation. Cleary is Executive Director of HAF. If true, Cleary has HAF involved behind the scenes in various local political efforts, even going so far as to hire a Bay Area activist to run them. Nothing wrong with those efforts in themselves but, as THC writes;

"No, our beef is with HAF, and their backhanded attempts to hijack the politics and voices of our community through the once-proud reputation and influence of a storied “non-partisan” organization."

I agree. Pretty shameless behavior but, even if completely true, it should be no surprise.

Years ago I spoke with Pat Cleary to make him aware that the moneys he was directing to Friends of the Dunes were having a detrimental impact on our coastline leading to mass erosion, dead trees, loss of wildlife and drained wetlands.
Didn't phase him, the money kept going to the "Friends" - the results are stunningly grotesque.

Poor Fred. The world is changing so fast. His only response lately is to shut people up. Keep the gays in the closet, don't let people speak for social change, don't let people speak for civil rights.

Just everybody shut up and watch TV!

Money kills trees, causes erosion and drains wetlands? You learn something new everyday.

Is Pat Cleary involved with the Friends of the Dunes other than playing music at some events? I wasn't aware

You bet. The organization that he leads is inappropriately taking gifted money, intended for environmental good and directing it towards a group that promotes environmental harm.

promotes environmental harm.....

I've yet to see any of these promotions. Are they possibly living in your head?

Aren't you funny.
Specifically The Bowl in the hind dunes west of Manila Community Center and the fore dune on the Rudd Property.
Check them out, get back to us with plans for repair.

Why do church zealots, aka Wiccans, get to run the government? Without co2, trees can't produce pure oxygen. Without pure oxygen, life cannot sustain. Is this why the government has limited allowable toxins levels to "0"? The government has declared all exhales to be cancerous.
Quote from somewhere online. "WHO reports that humans produce formaldehyde in
their bodies and exhale it at concentrations of up to a few parts
per billion (ppb). The IRIS-proposed cancer risk value of
0.008 ppb would set a cancer risk value that is significantly
below the levels that naturally occur in the environment (see
Figure 1). EPA’s proposed cancer risk value would suggest that
human breath poses an unacceptable risk of cancer."

This means we are all subject to punishment, penalties, taxes, imprisonment for "harming" others, by those with greed in their hearts & the military at their disposal.
