Twenty One Non/Profit -Politically Active Groups Make up Radical Green Coalition
BALLOTS OUT JULY 18th 2014
July 7th 2014
I receive e-mail updates from an organization called: The Environmental Priorities Coalition :
Their stated Mission:
“A network of leading environmental groups in Washington state. Formed in 2003, the Environmental Priorities Coalition selects priority issues each legislative session that make Washington State a better place to live.”
Read on to see how one member seems to see the mission and how it excludes many members of our society in making Washington State a better place to live.

The Federal Environmental Protection Agency and Brooks Mfg state the figure is One Pound of toxic waste, that’s right one pound in fact the Environment Washington report is actually
One Million Twenty Seven Thousand Seven Hundred Ninety Six Pounds in error
Was it a mistake by Environment Washington and their research organ “Environment America Center.Org” or just more corporate bashing by a zealot green activist organization?? You decide…
Brooks Mfg, the LOCAL small corporation that employs about 65 people with family wage jobs; did not even get a courtesy call from KGMI, for a response to Environment Washington’s News Release BEFORE the misinformation of the story was published on the air waves.KGMI did apologize on Monday after the Friday Morning report. But sadly Environment Washington has not apoloziged or removed the report from their website.
So the question becomes does KGMI give a “pass” on any story that the Environmental Priorities Coalition Membersproduce and not on others? You Decide… It seems KGMI might want to let Environment Washington know of their error and report the response of Environment Washingtonto the public.
The conclusion… In the ideal of media without an agenda someone would have been fired for such shoddy reporting. In the present day we must each be our own fact finders. Its sad that the press would rather uplift government and bash good corporate neighbors like zealot environmental groups seem so willing to do. It seems that Enviroment Washington is being very selective in its mission of making the state a better place to live.
It is still unknown which Legislative District Senate Candidate Seth Fleetwood resides in.
There have been concerns about Senate Candidate Seth Fleetwood’s frequent changes in his voting address in the last five months. See below for some of the facts. It will be important to ferret out these issuesas the campaign progresses.
Seth Fleetwood Senate Candidate in the 42nd District. A list of his voting registration addresses since December 2013.
Fact: According to Whatcom County Auditor Records at the time, he moved his Voting Registration Address from Palm St in South Bellingham to 17th Street located in the 40th District on Dec. 4th 2013
Fact: According to Whatcom County Auditor Records at the time, he moved his voting Registration Address from 17th St in South Bellingham to 6999 Helweg Lane in the Blaine area in the 42nd District on April 29, 2014— The day he announced his run for the Senate in the 42nd Legislative District. There is no evidence that he ever lived there.
Fact: According to Whatcom County Auditor Records at the time, he moved his Registration Address from 6999 Helweg Lane in the Blaine area to a home for sale for 1.5 million dollars at 1504 Irving Lane in the Fort Bellingham area of Whatcom County. He did this Registration Address Change on May 15th 2014 the day he filed for office; both the Blaine and North Bellingham addresses are in the 42nd Legislative District. There has been no evidence he has moved there.
Fact: A Diane Lookman is also registered to vote at the 1504 Irving Lane Address and one Michael Lookman is the owner of record at the home according to the Whatcom County Assessor Records but is not registered to vote there.
Is Seth Fleetwood just confused about where he wants to register to vote (generally people move to a place AND THEN change their registration)? Did he ever live at the Blaine Address?
Does anyone care that his registration process in the 42nd looks contrived and only politically motivated?
Write me back an e-mail if you have an opinion either way.

Current Government Environmental dogma:
The Earth is warming
Increase in Carbon Dioxide is the only cause that matters.
Carbon Dioxide increase is caused by human activity.
Conclusion of the dogma:
Warming is happening, warming will continue to happen, warming will increase (INTO THE FUTURE) based on Human Behavior only.
Human policy in Washington State will be predicated on this conclusion and we must comply with all policies to save the earth from Carbon and only Carbon “overheating” IN THE FUTURE.
Washington State MUST lead in Carbon Only reduction by spending its tax dollars, potential jobs and give up its inexpensive power to get this done.

Let your legislators know you want common sense legislation and common sense energy costs AND a real definition for “Green Energy”.
