Same here in the Sierra Nevada. The forests are in all the different stages of death and dying and are suffering from things never seen before. The fungi are out of control and can be seen growing on everything. Some pines are bleeding out their sap. It looks like glass on the forest floor. Our greenhouse garden would not ripen. It is stunning to watch this crime unfold. Thanks to all for spearding the word and responding properly for those who do survive this. I am becoming convinced that earth needs to shake humans off like fleas. Damaged goods control the planet.
Coming a little late to the party, but I just want to report that the same thing is being witnessed in the coastal range down in Mendocino County. I take it personally because it’s happening all around my place out in the hills, with enormous swaths of sick and dying vegetation having developed in the most obvious way during the past few years. No doubt it’s polluting our local watersheds too. And in addition to all the overhead spraying, the largest local timberland owner – Mendocino Redwood Company – has been and still is currently engaged in a wholesale tan oak eradication program which has produced tens of thousands of acres of standing dead timber. There’s a pretty serious brougha going on here, as even the local fire chiefs are raising a hue and cry about the huge fire danger all this dead wood poses. But the corporados still insist it’s all for the good. Try we must, but things really don’t bode well. The human project has jumped the rails.
Dying for our country: a sermon on the death of Capt
~George Washington, 1796
Our hearts where they rocked our cradle,
Our love where we spent our toil,
And our faith, and our hope, and our honor,
We pledge to our native soil.
God gave all men all earth to love,
But since our hearts are small,
Ordained for each one spot should prove
Beloved over all.
To me, it seems a dreadful indignity to have a soul controlled by geography. ~George Santayana
It is the love of country that has lighted and that keeps glowing the holy fire of patriotism. ~J.
The Corn Is Dying All Over America - The Economic …
Our country is the world, our countrymen are all mankind. We love the land of our nativity, only as we love all other lands. The interests, rights, and liberties of American citizens are no more dear to us than are those of the whole human race. Hence we can allow no appeal to patriotism, to revenge any national insult or injury. ~William Lloyd Garrison, Declaration of Sentiments, Boston Peace Conference, 1838
If our country is worth dying for in time of war let us resolve that it is truly worth living for in time of peace. ~Hamilton Fish
Patriotism is a kind of religion; it is the egg from which wars are hatched. ~Guy de Maupassant
Patriotism is when love of your own people comes first; nationalism, when hate for people other than your own comes first.
Assisted dying is a right - Dying With Dignity Canada
All the Kinder express nothing but thankfulness for Britain’s contribution. Holding her British identity card, with its picture of her 10-year-old self in a black velvet dress with a white satin collar, Ruth Jacobs says: “I have the greatest admiration for England and the English people. They were the only country that took us in.” Erika Judge is equally clear: “To my dying day, I will be grateful to this country.”
The Dying Negro, A Poem (Thomas Day and John Bicknell)
Trees are the terrestrial lungs of the planet, and they are dying all over the globe. Government agencies and mainstream media are not reporting on the unfolding cataclysm of this die off. Though the changing climate is correctly associated with off the chart tree mortality, the even larger issue of global climate engineering is still being ignored and denied by the scientific community and media. If the forests die, we will soon enough be next to go. The 10 minute video below should be very sobering to all. Our biosphere is dying. The human race must completely change direction starting with the total cessation of climate engineering. All are needed in the fight to expose and stop the geoengineering insanity, the spraying must be halted if we are to have any chance of salvaging a living planet.

Forgot to say that our 12 sugar maples around our place are all dying. Dead branches spread rapidly and kill the whole tree. After a rain they die with green leaves. rapid flash kill. beware the rain! If the rain does that to trees what does it do to us?
