Please consider this my public comment upon this Air Quality Monitoring Plan for 2019.

https://dnr.wi.gov/topic/AirQuality/documents/2019NetworkPlanProposed.pdf

First I would like to congratulate the state DNR for updating to the higher particulate monitoring standard.  also it seems that urban pollution is actually decreasing overall.  However,  This 2019 plan has significant lapses.

THERE IS NO HYDROCARBON or HALIDE monitoring, although these substances have a significant effect on human health.  Recently a refinery with permit violations exploded in Superior WI causing a city-wide evacuation.  I hope that emergency air quality monitoring of some sort will be done, but at the public meeting there was no reassurance to be had for a Dane County resident (Marshall, site of a petroleum pipeline) whose health is significantly impacted by auto-immune responses to the petroleum based in the local air.

Supposedly due to budget constraints, the state does not monitor INDUSTRIAL sites; rather as part of permitting they are promising to monitor themselves.  But the data collected from this monitoring IS NOT AVAILABLE to the public, and DNR does not have its OWN MONITORS near these sites, as it is considered a redundancy.  The foxes are in charge of the hens when it comes to industry compliance.

Another controversial source of pollutants for 2019 may be the FOXCONN development in the southeast lakeshore area.  The water used by this international corporation has already been promised, from a neighboring watershed instead of the Great Lakes, which is going to be a tragedy for those inland from the site.  The DNR 2019 proposal does NOT contain any additional monitoring for this area, besides the existing ozone and near-highway programs.  Paper-milling areas are presently monitored for heavy metals, esp. mercury but the FOXCONN development area is not getting any. I suppose the present DNR would consider this monitoring ‘redundant,’ once again leaving an overseas ‘fox’ in charge of the air for us citizen ‘chickens.’

The problem is said to be a dearth of funds available. That is why I am sending this comment also to my elected representatives from Monona, WI district.  I would very much like for the industrial permitting process provisions for ‘self-monitoring ‘ to include state compliance monitoring costs.  These monitoring stations need to be under STATE control, not the industry itself.

Additionally, the petrochemical industry is currently getting too much support nationally and the only hope for the folks on the ground rests with state regulations.  Superior, Wisconsin tragedy, and the ongoing resistance to pipelines through our state is a wake-up call that monitoring of all effluents from petrochemicals need to be identified and regulated, as human health is already being compromised.

Thank you for your kind attention to this.

          My Grove is a very small place on a hilltop, surrounded by the dwellings of other humans, but we do see quite a lot of wildlife despite that.  It gives a feeling of accomplishment to raise my voice for all beings of the Grove, who otherwise would not be taken into account by the skimpy scientific monitoring of our health.
I encourage other humans to do the same for the places where you dwell.

From Chakra Healing and Karmic Awareness by Keith Sherwood (2005 Llewellyn Publications, St. Paul Mn USA)  :

“Below you will find a series of commitments that will sever your links to non-physical beings outside your energy field… and will bring you in accord with the will of the Self as it emerges through your higher and lower mind. In addition, these commitments will safeguard your energy field from any further intrusions of non-physical beings by strengthening your boundaries on all worlds anbd dimensions, including the world of spirit, intellect, soul, lower mind, world of the chakras, and the levels of the splenic chakras.

If you know it’s appropriate to make these commitments and you know you will keep them permanently, then simply read the commitments below, repeat them out loud, and affirm, “I agree to these three commitments.”

The first is:

Climate Repair Meditation — guest post from Green Mountain Druid Order

February 3, 2018

source:

http://www.philipcarr-gomm.com/climate-repair-meditation/

there is a live video at the link, and more.

Hello folks!

I am here today with the trees to share with you a simple and powerful practice for repairing the climate.

First I want to share a bit about how this came about.

Like so many of us, I have felt so much concern about climate change, and sadness about the loss of life, home, and habitat. It is painful to witness and devastating to experience.

Scientists are predicting massive environmental catastrophe and the changes are happening even faster than expected. These are scary times indeed, but I do believe there is hope!

What I know is that the mindset that created this problem is not the one that will get us out. It’s time we move beyond the box of the rational, the reductionist, the political.

What is beyond the box? Imagination, partnership, intention, love and MAGIC!

You see, Nature is always working to return to dynamic equilibrium. We have thrown things off so far, that she has had to conjure up powerful storms, fires, earthquakes to wake us up, to clear away the outmoded, and to bring us back into right relationship.
Right now right relationship must include taking responsibility and action to heal what has been damaged.

I am one of those wyrd people who talks to trees and stones, faery and dragon..
I go to Nature for answers to the big questions. So I went with the quandry of climate change and was given this practice by Sycamore Tree.

We know that the trees and all in the green world are Natures climate guardians. They gobble up CO2 and expel 02, creating the perfect balance of gasses for life as we know it.

But the trees can’t keep up. We have cut down too many forests and we have released too much CO2 into the atmosphere.

This practice is a way of expanding the natural capacity of the trees to do what they do, by partnering. Together we can change everything!

All you will need is just a few minutes of quiet time. This can be done sitting, standing, inside or out. Eyes closed or open.

This is designed to be done by people of all ages and denominations.

Please share and repeat!

May there be Peace throughout the whole world,
/|\ Fearn Lickfield

 

 

 

When you can choose to disbelieve By Nimue Brown –guest post

December 30, 2017

Most times when I re-post my fellow Druid author’s blogging, I give you only a taste of the whole here.  This time it’s the entire thing. She’s put it very succinctly and thoroughly.  The medicine for disbelief is TRUTH (awen).  The cure is to combine truth with BELIEF.  

BELIEVE  in the experiences of others.  Believe in your own true experience.  Believe in the future as it comes.  The future is woven not from disbelief but from belief.  Disbelief is a way of not facing what unfolds, and also disables our ability to deal with things.

When you can choose to disbelieve By Nimue Brown

There are a great many things that are subject to disbelief. Racial hatred, abuse and harassment, sexual hatred abuse and harassment, the practical and social difficulties grinding down the disabled, and the relentless misery of being poor. If I’m online any day, the odds are I’ll see someone questioning that these things happen, disbelieving victims and sufferers and offering alternative explanations.

The option to disbelieve comes from not being affected personally. So many people are so easily persuaded that if they haven’t seen it, it doesn’t happen. This means that when others try and tell them what happens, they ignore the evidence in favour of their belief, and so they still don’t see it happening.

Disbelief is most often followed by shaming and blaming. The feckless poor with their cigarettes and alcohol. The women who bring it upon themselves by having bodies and clothes and going outside. The disabled people who aren’t trying hard enough to magic themselves well. I think the worst of this is what comes up over race to try and explain away brutality, oppression and a rigged game designed to be unwinnable if you’re from the ‘wrong’ group. Often this is the worst of it because poverty is usually in there too, and the other things on the list can and do feature.

Disbelief means taking no responsibility. It means there’s no pressure to look either at your own behaviour or about the way you participate in a culture that allows this. Disbelief affirms the feeling that all your good things come from your hard work and virtue. You’re too clever to be raped, to get sick, to become poor. The illusion of safety and of being in control are comforting things.

Disbelief is also another form of misery to heap onto those already in trouble. Not only are you dealing with some vile thing, but you’re doing it surrounded by people who tell you it does not exist, is not happening, does not happen. You’ve made it up to get attention (because there’s so much glory, wealth and power to be obtained by admitting you were abused, right?). You’re lying. You’re trying to get out of something or get something for nothing or get special treatment. You’re a snowflake. You’re to blame. And when you’ve already been knocked down by something, dealing with people who refuse to believe it even exists is ghastly.

If people around you deny your reality, say your experience doesn’t exist or is your fault, that way lies madness. Being told you are the cause of the abuse you have suffered crushes your sense of self, takes away your self esteem, may make you question your own experience and your right to feel about it as you do. And of course if all you ever see is people denying that your problem is a real problem, you’ll be less likely to call it out in the first place.

If you’ve been there, it isn’t a belief issue. If you’ve seen it, you know it happens. You don’t have to question why someone would say something like that. You don’t try to figure out how it was their fault, because you know what happens. Disbelief is a luxury available only to those who do not know.
