your trying to get my goat . Managing forests . I just got the seminar. As it pertains to Wood For Haiti.
Forest have a life span . Cycles . People are stupid for the most part . They live in the past . Some of them hold on to that past with every bit of strength there personalities can muster .
Clear cut is a bad word right . Your idiots . You no nothing about forest management ( This is not for ignorant . This is for all those groups that spike trees . Make there nests in the trees with the birds and slap law suits on timber sales .
Who is the best stewards of the forest ?
Not some snot nosed punk with a green hat on .
Let me tell you about the personality of the average tree hugger that thinks they know the science of health forests . : First a set up to site my credentials of knowing .
Yeah they worked for me back in the day I was going guns a blazing . They didn't have cars , not so much that they didn't drive as much as they not afford a car , but there anti car attitude was prevalent. The electric car they held onto like it was there dream of life time . Bio Cars also . No money though so there you go . They were fine when they would buy some old beater that got about 12 miles to the gal. or less because they typically needed a tune up .
So that is not the point . So my favorite hippie worker he smoked . Weed and cigarettes. Not that care . I don't care . So he would flip his smoke and cigarette ashes and throw his butts out the window . I would say don't do that use the ashtray . Fire season was on and could I get him to stop ? Hell no and we won't go .
I got to were I was chewing his *** as he was talking about how he was at this rally and that rally stopping timber sales . I would say dude your going to burn the forest done if you don't stop throwing your hot boxes out . No go He would say I am Sorry , I know I know , Sorry and then do it again . I am lucky he didn't burn the forest down or at minimum get me fined real good .
So yeah he is typical . I don't know the exact head of this monster but let me tell you " <<< Lodge Pole Pine are dead . They are going to catch fire and burn crispy critter hotter than nature allows because of forest floor build up from the fire suppression policy driven by hooligan dudes and gals with a blunt in between there fingers who no nothing about forest management or stewardship.
They will burn extremely hot but there will growth after. Now it is the second burn that will do the final kick to the landscape. When it burns the second time it will scorch the earth . After that moon scape . 30 to 40 years of moon scape .
That is our forest policy in the U.S.
Now it is not the forest Departments fault so you can't blame them . They are experts with science to back up there moves . They do have a counter circle though . Fire fighters and smoke jumpers but even then they know now to let some fires burn unless they threaten housing structures and peoples lives .
So there is a change happening as the science comes out more and more from cold hard data collected by real scientists with short hair and degrees in Biology and such . Like my Daughter who specializes in aquatic bugs and fish .
They let them burn as to keep the forest floor clear of to much build up of down fall. Anyone who has walked the National Forest knows it is a big problem . To much fuel . Now we add the thousands and thousands of beetle kill Lodge pole pine to the mix . Yeap Colorado is burning out of control . Why ? Cause some punk kid that thinks he knows better about the science of forest and has mastered the art of slapping law suits stops the timber sales that the " Experts in Science say we need to do .
It is not clear cutting idiots . It is crop rotation .
Those days of depleting forests of there natural resource went out in the 30s and maybe as late as the 40s . The Industry got a wake up call even before that as there supplies dwindled to nothing . Now most of the Trees harvested are trees they planted . Private land ? Is the best practices in Tree Management . Number 2 Is States and they are able in my state to side step most of the law suits by crazy hippie do goobers who know not what they are doing by some law the state has . It is a consequence of the law not that the law said you can't sue , but rather the law made it difficult to suit by the steps a person has to take to sue .
3Rd National forest are a shamble night mare about unfold and is unfolding right before your eyes . Is any body looking . I bet you flicking people that live on the fires edge are.
Lets do our selves a favor . Lets harvest the lumber and gift it for good will . Make wood Houses for Haitians is a great place to start . There is money available. The big money is waiting to see our proof of concept . We are getting there , but in the mean time look what is going on ? We need some seed money faster . That is why I sit around having all this time to post nonsense on Physics forums .
I would still make the time cause secretly I love you guys . You Too newguy . Rob you the man as goofy as you can be sometimes . Your still a thinking person and that admire .
Anyway I lost my train of thought .
Trees are dead . Lodge pole pine are dead and present a natural national disaster. There is no market and the feds have started a program to cut some of it out of the forest except for getting money for the sale they are paying to have the work done .
My plan is to rejuvenate the timber industry by bringing the lumber to Haiti , Provide Earth Quake and Hurricane safe Housing by training Haitians with a limited amount of U.S. carpenters. Introducing a Spice trade in the same plan as a sustainable economic model so it is not just a sink hole hand out .
Replant the forest of Haiti , decentralize Port-Au-Prince into micro farm communities that grows spice and herbs that they trade in foreign markets there by raising there G.D.P. and there economic standing in the world .
This is the thing , Some of those spices go for more money than weed because of there specialized uses .
Haiti use to be the spice capitol of the world and big business has been missing the Haitian crops since the 80s .
There is a particular taste from one of those spices you can only get in Haiti . They been using a dumb down version of it from India . Has to do with the soil in Haiti . Soil plays a lot in the subtle taste of things .
Anyway . I can get them on track . The Defense department knows this . I got to believe they Know about the Groups of 7,000 and more of Haitians I spoke to . All over the country . Yeah they know and they Know the Haitians trust Me . They have good reason to trust Me . I am there best friend and will defend my Haitian Buddies Like Dr, Patrick Judea , Ron Blanc , Father Joseph Pillip . Pierre who is with Fada even though his group did he big No No even though if it is done in the U.S. it would not be the big no no kind of a screw job , but they was guilty , not necessarily Pierre, but some peoples in his group Fada Gods Eye on Earth . To my death
They know that . All the Haitians do . That is why they Trust Me and have High hopes I can do what has never been done in Haiti .
The thing is " I can "
I was raised to do it .
It is strange , but I was raised to do it .
I look back on my life and every move and experience I ever had was in preparation for this event, Spirit ( like an athlete, not religious) Mind and Body .
I am the perfect guy
I am street wise to the core like Haitians are
I have worked in the industry for over 40 years
I have learned best practices in Green Technology building. I have studied aspects of limited growth . Am familiar with Mixed uses and new methods of traffic control by identification of egress from housing to arterial escape routs .
I understand agricultural land preservation which is the perfect model for the Haitian Micro Farm .
Land integration is one my specialties . Conforming to natural landscape as to have minimal impact on environments.
My best quality is listening to the needs of the customer and delivering housing based on there daily activities plus any potential future changes in activities .
It is not a science . It is the ability to know your customer in side and out . When they brush there teeth . There personal habits . There interactions with other family members. Right down to when they start there car to leave to work .
Getting in side the mind of the people that will live in the house .
That is what I do and any one who has had Me build them a house can testify to my skill in that .
I have won Integration awards also . Yeah .
O,K, enough of that , Besides that We got a very talented Architect and an engineer extraordinaire. Also with experience in Haiti and Has done extensive retro fit reinforcing of existing structures as to be more earth quake safe . He is on the Board of Directors "Hands Together "
There most failed program has been Housing . They have High Hopes I can be successful .
I can do it . I know I can . I was raised for the task
What does all this mean when you biol away all the hype
Haiti lifting out of the 3rd world
Restoring a Pride of People by going back to work contributing a real Need. With an increase of monetary compensation for that worker .
Restore timber industry related Jobs in the U.S. with a trickle effect all industries and major up tick to direct suppliers of non wood materials in building like windows door and all other non wood items .
A real kick start to the world economy is the implications .
That is not all
By example of Haitian involvement the plan becomes a model program in organized efforts to raise 3rd worlds up in standings in world economic systems .
You all should know by now world population is dependent on 3rd worlds joining first worlds .
You all should also know by now that the world culture has already taken hold of the next generations of people . It is becoming real quick like one world culture do to the unbelievable power of modern communication .
O.K. that is my tree pitch and Well Down the street from Me . I can almost hit with a rock and could if I was a pro ball player has the best practice science on the health of the forest . What are they saying ? Can you hear therm ? Get the beetle kill out before it is to late and we end up with moon scape for our wilderness .
Lodge-pole pine is a perfect specimen for House framing
O.K. sounded like an add . It is not . It is an action plan to turn the mood of the planet to hope for the future.
Get on board the train . We are leaving for heaven . Deep time style
So you don't like hippies.Lol
Hey did you know that the best carpenters are the Japanese or the best examples of expert carpentry are in Japan.
I find that university educated forestry technicians aren't much better than the tree huggers.
They are only interested in mono culture for profit.
