The always-good-for-a-laugh, Charles Schumer (D-NY), in 2004 proudly announced a $200,000 program for "Geesepeace." Instead of using time-testing culling methods, like actually killing geese, this group sought to promote other non-lethal methods whose performance is highly questionable. Of course, Geesepeace is your typical environmentalist group that promotes the value of goose life more than human life.
Federal funds will go towards "Geesepeace" program for New York that uses humane methods to stop Canadian geese from ruining parks and fields
US Senator Charles E. Schumer today announced that Congress has passed $200,000 in federal funds for the US Fish and Wildlife Service to implement a Geesepeace program that works to alleviate the Canada geese overpopulation problem that threatens the health of local residents and the environment. Geesepeace is a national non-profit organization that uses non-lethal methods to reduce the number of geese and redirect them to areas where they pose less of a threat to people. The funds come as part of the agricultural appropriations component of the Omnibus bill passed today by the Senate and have been earmarked to be used specifically for New York. The bill, previously passed by the House, now awaits the President's signature.
Geesepeace uses environmentally-safe and non-lethal methods to reduce the number of geese and redirect them away from public places. The process includes close coordination with residents, and recruitment and training of volunteers. "Addling" of geese eggs – a process akin to spaying or neutering a dog in which the eggs are coated with oil – is the first step in the solution developed by Geesepeace and used successfully in many areas of the country. Schumer visited the Hudson Valley last year to promote the program and at the time vowed to fight for these funds. The $200,000 for Geesepeace will be split evenly between the Hudson Valley and Long Island
When is the insanity with these environmentalist groups going to stop? Every year hundreds of homes burn down in forest fires because it has been made illegal (thanks to the enviro-Nazis) to clear brush in some regions of the country. Now we have a Senator from New York, who couldn't find a microphone fast enough to proclaim the captain of 1549 a hero, whose pet environmental project for "Geesepeace" is a complete dud.
I'm not saying Chuck directly caused the crash, but the environmental nuts have their hand so far down the Democrats pants to that you can see the human effects.
