Redwood Saviors or Cyber Criminals? Center Supporters Update Democracy

From the Center for Biological Diversity's weekly newsletter "Endangered Earth"

5,100 of the Center for Biological Diversity's supporters love the redwoods so much they deluged the California Department of Transportation with emails complaining of the agency's plan to slice a road through the gorgeous Richardson Grove in the state's remove North Coast.

Rather than responding to the public's concern, the Department of Transportation called the State Police Cyber Crime Division to report that they were under attack by hostile forces. Apparently interacting with the public was "diverting" the agency from its real job -- chopping down forests and paving the wilderness. A crime if there ever was one.

A police investigation determined that the agency was suffering from an acute case of citizen involvement, to which there is no cure.

Learn more about Richardson Grove. Then tell CalTrans today that the public wants its redwoods standing, not paved.


  1. Its a small realignement, not a new road, liar.

  2. You are only half right, Anonymous.(If that is your real name)

    The Richardson Grove Improvement Project(RIP) is a project designed to RIP a hole in the Redwood Curtain by removing 87 trees as well as cutting, filling, and paving the roots of 30 Ancient Coastal Redwoods that line highway 101 within Richardson Grove State Park.

    The $10 Million dollar project is not a small "realignement", at the tax payer price tag of $5 Million dollars per mile.

    Where you may be correct by stating the fact that it is not a "new road", it is definitely NOT a "small realignement". This large realignment threatens to destroy the Redwood Curtain. Even the Cal-trans DEIR states that "Adverse effects to large trees may be a significant impact to this unique natural community".
