This is an example of how fast they work and how widespread their efforts are. It is no secret that we are suing over the SMP so, while we spend time and money fighting the imposition of that regulatory mess, they are working on a new front to simply deny land use under the guise of protecting us from our own misguided dreams.
I don’t think we can beat these people with science and I don’t think we can expose their real agenda because of the “soft speak” they use to take over. What they “say” they are doing and what they want to do are entirely different. Yesterday, Al Scalf actually grinned at us when he said, “You’re gonna pay for consultants and engineers and then you’re gonna pay us too!”
It is obvious that JeffCo/PT are working right out of the ICLEI playbook:
While they are taking over the regulating and managing of all our land and resources – especially water. They are also focusing on energy and hiring a special consultant to “conserve” resources. I can imagine what type of resume they are looking for in the Resource Conservation Manager.

Educating community members about climate change and other environmental concerns to a point where it results in behavior change, can be challenging. Although, when awareness of environmental issues is raised via targeted and well-publicized efforts, the experience gained by the local government can inform and inspire individual action, leading to substantial community-wide reductions in energy use and greenhouse gas emissions.
Campaigns that rely solely on providing information rarely have the ability to change people’s behavior. Instead, a successful outreach campaign will focus on understanding not only which actions support the behavior you are trying to promote, but also on the specific factors that influence people to take those actions. Research has identified a set of tools to promote behavior change: obtaining commitments, using prompts, utilizing social norms, designing effective communications, providing incentives, and removing external barriers. Not all tools need to be utilized in any one campaign, but note that they are most effective when used in combination with each other.
