The following email was forwarded by
a member of an organic gardening
forum. Something strange is going on
in Marin County.
Does anyone have any ideas?
This is very depressing. The friend who wrote me is an avid gardener and
lives north of San Francisco. If anyone knows anything helpful it would
certainly be appreciated.

I have noticed the same thing here in N. Calif./ Lake co. The trees are dying by the groves. My fruit trees have all lost their fruit and are looking bad. Most of the trees have brown burn holes in the leaves. Worst at the top but it is all the way down. My lawn has burn spots in it also.
The missletoe is beginning to brown up and drop off of the oaks. The planet and us are dying thanks to out of control science.

Hasn't anybody bothered to think about how we will breath any air at all with no more trees to create oxygen???

I keep getting an image of mad scientists ruling the world lately David! I don't understand why people don't question the direction that many fields of science are heading. Everything seems so bizarre.
RTW- I liked your idea about going into the "bubble" business! It seems like one of the main ideas in a lot of older science fiction, I think we might need to get right on it!
I am beginning to get the urge to save seeds.

We won't need seeds Pen if they continue to take the sun away and keep away the rain.
Easy way to rid the lot of us!

This has been going on for a long while
we first saw our madrone trees in 1993
and salal brush in 1989
now it is the Fir and Alder and Hemlock trees
the Shore Pine the Citum (cascarra)
even our worst weed the Grounsel
is dieing from a Pucinnia rust fungus
(floresent orange) as the moss on the north side of the trees

RTW, The Military/Industrial Comlex probably find it fitting to "spray" us with fungus from chemplanes...after all, they "treat us all like mushrooms," Keep us all in the dark and keep feeding us plenty a s***!! My skin color is getting more beigey-gray everyday, Yikes, I AM a mushroom anymore!! P.S. Don't mind me, Delphi having another "freak-out". Blessings, Joanne ^j^ P.S.S. Our beautiful plants, trees, grass, and gardens are not doing well at all...like I stated once before...our entire property is being literally over-taken by mushrooms...maybe that's why the dogs have been goofey lately...uh oh, I know whatcha thinkin...hubby did "mow" the yard again today though. Heh,heh! J.
