  • Peter J. LaGrasse“The Mythological Native American” - Cannibalism, Headhunting and Human Sacrifice in North America, A History Forgotten by George Franklin Feldman (Alan B. Hood & Co., Chambersburg, Penna. 2008), Book Review by Peter J. LaGrasse, full version of edited review that appeared in the New York Property Rights Clearinghouse Vol. 17, No. 2 (PRFA, July 2013)
    Contrary to common perceptions, pre-Columbian Native Americans were far from noble in their actions toward each other and often had a profoundly negative impact on the environment. To try to restore the landscape to pre-Columbian wildlands is a deception.
  • Carol W. LaGrasse“APA, DEC, Others Aim to Depopulate” - Letter to the Editor of the Post-Star, Glens Falls, N.Y., by Carol W. LaGrasse, President, Property Rights Foundation of America, Inc. (Publ. May 6, 2013)
    Officials should not dismiss citizens who oppose planning that smacks of UN Agenda 21 ideas, which are promoted by ICLEI. Internationalists who succeeded in getting the Adirondacks designated a UN Biosphere Reserve in 1989 are progressing in the key Biosphere Reserve goal of depopulation.
  • Charles E. Kay“Wolf Recovery in the Northern Rockies: What Pro-Wolf Advocates Do Not Want You to Know” - Address by Charles E. Kay, Ph. D., Wildlife Ecology, John M. Huntsman School of Business, Utah State University, Address to the Sixteenth Annual National Conference on Private Property Rights, Latham, N.Y., October 20, 2012 (Property Rights Foundation of America, Inc.)
    Charles Kays presentation ranged widely across the many aspects of reintroducing wolves to the Northern Rockies, and how his knowledge may be applicable to the East, where there is talk of putting wolves in upstate New York. He repeatedly exposed corruption of science and the ignorance of federal judges. He took the audience through the depredations by the colonizing wolves and the resultant near extinction of the elk, debunking the distracting established themes from predator-mediated competition to the supposed relevance of habitat. As his talk gathered steam, he said that the wolves are now in the process of wiping out woodland and mountain caribou across the length and breadth of Canada. The wolf has reduced hunting opportunities by ninety percent in the Northern Rockies, as he predicted in 1993. Livestock losses in the West have been virtually uncompensated.
  • Jigs Gardner“Greenism: Strategy, Roots, Consequences” - By Jigs Gardner, Farmer and Writer, Essex, New York. Address to the Sixteenth Annual National Conference on Private Property Rights, Latham, N.Y., October 20, 2012 (Property Rights Foundation of America, Inc.)
    The redefinition of the word environment by the Greens has made our environment sacred and used it as a moral bludgeon. We must go beyond the issue of jobs and attack the Greens on the basis that they want to stop any activity to use our natural resources to increase our prosperity and improve our lives. Greenism is by its intent impoverishing. Green ideologues believe in the goodness of nature and that humans and their civilization are a curse.
  • Bonner R. Cohen“Environmentalism and Its Consequences” - By Bonner R. Cohen, Senior Fellow, The National Center for Public Policy Research, Washington, D.C., Tenth Annual National Conference on Private Property Rights (PRFA, Albany, N.Y., October 14, 2006)
    In the world of environmentalism, human beings who live in rural areas are creatures that disturb the environment. But there is no such thing as the balance of nature, because nature is always changing. To get big money, the environmentalists tapped into the foundations, which are instruments of capitalism, radically transforming them over the past two or three decades. American environmental groups receive $9.6 million daily in donations.
  • Robert J. Smith“The Pleistocene Park Project—Removing Civilization from North America” - By Robert J. Smith, Adjunct Environmental Scholar, Competitive Enterprise Institute, Speech to the Ninth Annual National Conference on Private Property Rights (PRFA, Albany, N.Y., October 22, 2005)
    Environmental scholars proposed in August 2005 to restore the ecosystem and all the large animals that roamed North America at the end of the Pleistocene Ice Age, replacing extinct mammals with Asian and African counterparts, including elephants, lions, cheetahs, camels, wild horses and a giant tortoise, while eliminating human beings from ten states from Canada to Mexico, from the east edge of the Rockies to just west of the Mississippi River. This is just the latest of radical environmental proposals that are viewed as credible and explain what the environmental leadership is about.
