Overview From An Independent Perspective
The Fanatical Trade Associations’ Ridiculous Doctrines Against Fertilizers
The Golf Industry’s superintendents are on a COLLISION COURSE with LEFT-WING, FERTILIZER-HATING, FANATICAL, AND INCOMPETENT TRADE ASSOCIATIONS, such as …
• Golf Course Superintendents Association of America ( GCSAA )
• National Golf Foundation ( NGF )
• PACE Turf Information Service
• United States Golf Association ( USGA )
With their RIDICULOUS DOCTRINES, these associations may, perhaps unwittingly, OBLITERATE ALL GOLF FACILITIES BY CONSPIRING TO IMPOSE A DOCTRINE OF ARBITRARY AND UNNECESSARY FERTILIZER NUTRIENT REDUCTION against America’s Golf Industry. [ ?!?! ]
Some of these Trade Associations have also attempted to IMPOSE THE DOCTRINE OF BROWN IS THE NEW GREEN, based on the FALSE ASSUMPTION that BROWN turf requires fewer inputs, saves money, is better for the environment, and plays better. [ ?!?! ]
Why have these Trade Associations SELF-DESIGNATED themselves as CRITICS AGAINST GOLF SUPERINTENDENTS and their management practices ?!?!
Their RIDICULOUS DOCTRINES, which are DOOMED TO FAILURE, have been NAIVELY CONCOCTED to make Golf Industry’s superintendents supposedly more environmentally responsible.
The trade associations’ RIDICULOUS DOCTRINES will QUICKLY DOOM the Golf Industry’s superintendents, who will become UNABLE to manage their facilities WITHOUT ESSENTIAL, YES ESSENTIAL, FERTILIZER NUTRIENTS.
Throughout North America, the VAST MAJORITY of golf facilities that adopt these types of RIDICULOUS DOCTRINES become VICTIMS OF RECEIVERSHIP AND BANKRUPTCY, and / or become UNPLAYABLE GARBAGE DUMPS.
THE GOLF INDUSTRY’S SUPERINTENDENTS MUST STRONGLY OPPOSE THE ARBITRARY DOCTRINES OF LEFT-WING, FERTILIZER-HATING, FANATICAL, AND INCOMPETENT TRADE ASSOCIATIONS !

Left-Wing Fertilizer-Hating Fanatics Conspire To Arbitrarily Reduce The Use Of Conventional Fertilizer Nutrient Use In The Golf Industry
Fanatical Trade Associations’ Anti-Fertilizer Propaganda
According to a LEFT-WING ANTI-FERTILIZER SURVEY, the RATES at which ESSENTIAL NUTRIENTS are being used, and the NUMBER OF ACRES being fertilized by golf course superintendents, have seen a MARKED DECREASE in America.
This SURVEY implies a DOCTRINE that FERTILIZER REDUCTION is somehow environmentally responsible. [ WRONG ! ]
This SURVEY was NOT an accurate poll and NOT a scientific study.
This SURVEY was assessed by so-called scientists who have NO competence in Soil Science and⁄or Fertilizer Management.
Overall, this SURVEY was designed as a mere tool for IMPOSING THE RIDICULOUS DOCTRINE OF ARBITRARY AND UNNECESSARY FERTILIZER NUTRIENT REDUCTION.
This LEFT-WING ANTI-FERTILIZER SURVEY was CONCOCTED by FANATICAL TRADE ASSOCIATIONS like Golf Course Superintendents Association of America ( GCSAA ).
This LEFT-WING ANTI-FERTILIZER SURVEY was also funded by the United States Golf Association ( USGA ) through the GCSAA’s Environmental Institute for Golf.
BACKGROUND INFORMATION ― FANATICAL TRADE ASSOCIATIONS ARE NOT COMPETENT TO ASSESS FERTILIZERS ! ― The Golf Industry’s Trade Associations have absolutely NO EXPERTISE regarding Soil Science and⁄or Fertilizer Management. NO ONE within these associations has the expertise, training, or background on issues concerning the ASSESSMENT OF ESSENTIAL FERTILIZER NUTRIENTS. Moreover, The Golf Industry’s Trade Associations are spreading FALSE AND MISLEADING DOCTRINES against the use of ESSENTIAL FERTILIZER NUTRIENTS, CONTRADICTING over twenty-five years of research, and proving that they have absolutely NO EXPERTISE regarding Soil Science and⁄or Essential Nutrient Management ! Fertilizers used by the Golf Industry are SAFE for the environment ! WE MUST DEFEND THE INDUSTRY AGAINST LEFT-WING GOLF-HATING FANATICS, WHATEVER THE COST MAY BE !
Left-Wing Fertilizer-Hating Fanatics Conspire To Arbitrarily Reduce The Use Of Conventional Fertilizer Nutrient Use In The Golf Industry
So-Called Scientists May Not Be Competent To Assess Fertilizers
Comparing totals from 2006 and 2014, the LEFT-WING ANTI-FERTILIZER SURVEY gathered information and samples from 1,500 golf course superintendents.
This SURVEY was then ASSESSED BY SO-CALLED SCIENTISTS at PACE Turf and the National Golf Foundation ( NGF ), who made the LEFT-WING ANTI-FERTILIZER SURVEY available for peer review before going public.
NONE OF THESE SO-CALLED SCIENTISTS WHO CONCOCTED AND ASSESSED THIS SURVEY HAVE THE REQUIRED COMPETENCE FOR THE ASSESSMENT OF ESSENTIAL FERTILIZER NUTRIENTS !
BACKGROUND INFORMATION ― THE INDEPENDENT ANALYSIS OF FERTILIZERS IS BOGUS ! ― At PACE Turf, its so-called SCIENTISTS have NO expertise, NO training, and NO background on issues concerning the ASSESSMENT OF ESSENTIAL FERTILIZER NUTRIENTS. PACE Owner Larry Stowell is a Plant Pathologist and NOT a Soil Scientist. PACE Owner Wendy Gelernter is an Entomologist and NOT a Soil Scientist. At National Golf Foundation, Director of Consulting Services Richard B Singer has expertise in Finance, Insurance, and Marketing, and NOT Soil Science. Director of Consulting Services Ed Getherall has expertise in Business Administration and Finance, and NOT Soil Science. At Golf Course Superintendents Association of America ( GCSAA ), Rhett Evans has expertise in Parks and Recreation, and NOT Soil Science. NO ONE involved in this SURVEY has the REQUIRED COMPETENCE for the ASSESSMENT OF ESSENTIAL FERTILIZER NUTRIENTS. The Golf Industry’s Trade Associations have absolutely NO EXPERTISE regarding fertilizers and their fate in the environment ! Fertilizers used by the Golf Industry are SAFE for the environment ! WE MUST DEFEND THE INDUSTRY AGAINST LEFT-WING GOLF-HATING FANATICS, WHATEVER THE COST MAY BE !
Left-Wing Fertilizer-Hating Fanatics Conspire To Arbitrarily Reduce The Use Of Conventional Fertilizer Nutrient Use In The Golf Industry
Nitrogen, Phosphorus, And Potassium Are ESSENTIAL Fertilizer Nutrients
WHY ARE LEFT-WING, FERTILIZER-HATING, FANATICAL, AND INCOMPETENT TRADE ASSOCIATIONS IMPOSING THE RIDICULOUS DOCTRINE OF ARBITRARY AND UNNECESSARY FERTILIZER NUTRIENT REDUCTION ?!?!
WHY DO THEY CONSPIRE TO ARBITRARILY REDUCE ESSENTIAL, YES ESSENTIAL, NUTRIENTS ?!?!
Their SURVEY is a mere tool for ANTI-FERTILIZER PROPAGANDA.
As well as finding a REDUCTION IN FERTILIZER NUTRIENT USAGE, this LEFT-WING ANTI-FERTILIZER SURVEY found that golf course superintendents CUT BACK MOST DRAMATICALLY ON PHOSPHORUS, which is one of the three ESSENTIAL NUTRIENTS used to manage turf.
BACKGROUND INFORMATION ― FERTILIZER NUTRIENT REDUCTION PROGRAMS WERE NOT CREATED BY GOLF SUPERINTENDENTS ! ― In fact, the superintendents themselves DID NOT necessarily decide to reduce their use of phosphorus. In most cases, the fertilizer manufacturing industry made the decision for them by relentlessly offering low- or no-phosphorus fertilizers. The reduction of phosphorus was based upon pricing strategies and validating the anti-fertilizer activist agenda. In recent years, the costs of sources of phosphorus have risen. Low- or no-phosphorus fertilizer mixtures were foisted upon superintendents with the objective of keeping the overall prices in check. Moreover, the fertilizer manufacturing industry adopted low- or no-phosphorus fertilizers, with the mistaken strategy of appeasing fanatical-activists who falsely allege that phosphorus fertilizers are somehow damaging to the environment. The Golf Industry’s Trade Associations are spreading FALSE AND MISLEADING DOCTRINES against the use of ESSENTIAL FERTILIZER NUTRIENTS, CONTRADICTING over twenty-five years of research, and proving that they have absolutely NO EXPERTISE regarding Soil Science and⁄or Essential Nutrient Management !
An ARBITRARY REDUCTION of 53 per cent in PHOSPHORUS FERTILIZER USE was noted between 2006 to 2014, with a particularly ARBITRARY REDUCTION in the Northeast and North Central regions of America.
Lower amounts of POTASSIUM and NITROGEN are also being used according to the LEFT-WING ANTI-FERTILIZER SURVEY, with ARBITRARY REDUCTIONS of 42 per cent and 34 per cent respectively.
This has resulted in an ARBITRARY REDUCTION of more than 80,000 tons per year of ESSENTIAL, YES ESSENTIAL, NUTRIENTS, like NITROGEN, PHOSPHORUS, and POTASSIUM.
BACKGROUND INFORMATION ―
FERTILIZER NUTRIENT REDUCTION PROGRAMS ARE ARBITRARY AND WRONG ! ― Which left-wing anti-fertilizer fanatics decided that nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium ?!?! The goal of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium fertilization is to augment these ESSENTIAL NUTRIENTS in the soil so that colour, density, and growth are improved. The Golf Industry’s Trade Associations are spreading FALSE AND MISLEADING DOCTRINES against the use of ESSENTIAL FERTILIZER NUTRIENTS, CONTRADICTING over twenty-five years of research, and proving that they have absolutely NO EXPERTISE regarding Soil Science and⁄or Essential Nutrient Management !
USING A BALANCED RATIO FOR FERTILIZATION WILL DECREASE TURF SUSCEPTIBILITY TO CERTAIN DISEASES ! ― The Golf Industry’s Trade Associations MUST STOP IMPOSING LEFT-WING ANTI-FERTILIZER DOCTRINES on their memberships. Their FALSE, MISLEADING, AND ARBITRARY DOCTRINES against the use of ESSENTIAL FERTILIZER NUTRIENTS CONTRADICT over one-hundred years of research and field expertise. ARBITRARY FERTILIZER NUTRIENT REDUCTION PROGRAMS will be DISTASTROUS for the Golf Industry. Overall, the use of ADEQUATE RATES OF NITROGEN will NOT LEAD to disease problems. Using a fertilizer with a ratio of 3 : 1 : 2 ( nitrogen : phosphorus : potassium ), WILL DECREASE TURF SUSCEPTIBILITY TO CERTAIN DISEASES, when compared with nitrogen alone. Examples of fertilizers with a 3 : 1 : 2 ratio are 18-6-12 and 15-3-9. These types of fertilizers will tend to be used on golf course putting greens. At least 50 to 75 per cent slow-release nitrogen is suggested.
USING ADEQUATE NITROGEN WILL DECREASE TURF SUSCEPTIBILITY TO CERTAIN DISEASES ! ― The incidence of certain diseases, such as Dollar Spot and Red Thread, will INCREASE with LOW NITROGEN fertilization. Conversely, ADEQUATE FERTILIZATION PRACTICES will DECREASE TURF SUSCEPTIBILITY to the following diseases ─ • Fusarium Patch ( Microdochium Patch ) • Red Thread & Pink Patch • Take-All.
USING HIGH POTASSIUM AND HIGH PHOSPHORUS WILL DECREASE TURF SUSCEPTIBILITY TO CERTAIN DISEASES ! ― A HIGH-POTASSIUM ( with HIGH-PHOSPHORUS ) fertilizer mixture may be used to SUPPRESS Fusarium Patch ( Microdochium Patch ) disease. This disease is common in many parts of the nation. It is recommended to use a fertilizer with a 3 : 5 : 5 ratio, and apply it during the fall months. The closest practical example of a fertilizer with this ratio is 15-20-21. This fertilizer is recommended for most types of turfgrasses. Since Fusarium Patch disease is prevalent under cool and moist conditions; hence, at least 50 per cent slow-release nitrogen is recommended.
PACE Turf Information Service
PACE Turf claims to deliver science-based solutions to turf management problems with breaking research news, information, and expert advice.
Observers have noted that PACE Turf’s DOCTRINES appear to revolve around the ARBITRARY REDUCTION OF INPUTS and FAILED INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES. ( See Background Information below. )
According to Wendy Gelernter, Entomologist ( and NOT Soil Scientist ) at PACE Turf ―
This [ LEFT-WING ANTI-FERTILIZER SURVEY ] shows us that the Golf Industry is doing more with less when it comes to nutrient use on golf courses. [ ?!?! ]
The numbers show that golf course superintendents have [ ARBITRARILY REDUCED ESSENTIAL, YES ESSENTIAL ] nutrient use across the board with positive results. [ ?!?! ]
Conservation practices accounted for about 90 per cent of the [ ARBITRARY AND UNNECESSARY REDUCTION ] in [ ESSENTIAL, YES ESSENTIAL ] nutrient use.
BACKGROUND INFORMATION ―
THE GOLF INDUSTRY DESPERATELY NEEDS FERTILIZERS ! ― Without ESSENTIAL FERTILIZER NUTRIENTS, Golf Facilities will become BROWN AND UNPLAYABLE GARBAGE DUMPS. It is IMPOSSIBLE for Golf Superintendents to keep their facilities PLAYABLE AND BEAUTIFUL by ARBITRARILY REDUCING FERTILIZERS. PACE Turf, Golf Course Superintendents Association of America ( GCSAA ), and other trade associations, must CEASE focusing on the RIDICULOUS DOCTRINE OF ARBITRARY AND UNNECESSARY FERTILIZER NUTRIENT REDUCTION.
IPM DOES NOT WORK ! ― PACE Turf’s DOCTRINES also include FAILED INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES. Despite rigged testimonials and mock-photos, Integrated Pest Management ( IPM ) is INEFFECTIVE and DOES NOT WORK ! Sadly, IPM is promoted by those who FALSELY ALLEGE SUCCESS, and by those who are likely CONCOCTING LIES, MISCONCEPTIONS, and DECEPTIONS for their own nefarious personal interests. Overall, IPM is a WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY for Golf Facilities. IPM-Cultural-Practices DO NOT CONTROL PESTS of established turfgrasses, and WILL NOT ENSURE ADEQUATE PLAYING CONDITIONS. PACE Turf’s DOCTRINES are WRONG !
IPM IS INAPPROPRATE FOR THE GOLF INDUSTRY ! ― For several decades, IPM has been BASTERDIZED into a RIDICULOUS NUMBER OF VERSIONS in order to suit the needs pesticide-hating fanatics, left-wing educators, and hapless professionals. The Pesticide-Free-Version of IPM DEMANDS the ELIMINATION of the use of conventional pest control products while adopting so-called IPM-Cultural-Practices that will somehow suppress pest populations to an acceptable level. This is WRONG ! IPM is NOT EVEN the best way to simply REDUCE PESTICIDE USE. IPM-Cultural-Practices CANNOT be consistently considered as true alternatives to conventional pest control products, since damaging pests are often only SUPPRESSED, and NOT CONTROLLED. Wherever Pesticide-Free-IPM is entirely relied upon for the maintenance of turf and ornamentals, damaging pests MAY ONLY BE SLIGHTLY SUPPRESSED, at the expense of plant growth, playing conditions, and appearance. Otherwise, it is IMPOSSIBLE for Golf Superintendents to keep their facilities playable and/or beautiful by using IPM. Unfortunately, IPM has been designed to be applicable to the Agriculture Industry, and NOT the Golf Industry. In agriculture, IPM is a LEGITIMATE pest control strategy that uses a variety of complementary practices including ― mechanical devices, physical devices, as well as genetic, biological, and chemical management. PACE Turf’s DOCTRINES are WRONG !
Golf Course Superintendents Association Of America ( GCSAA )
According to Rhett Evans, who has expertise in Parks and Recreation, and NOT Soil Science, at Golf Course Superintendents Association of America ( GCSAA ) ―
Golf course superintendents are committed to their role as environmental stewards. [ ?!?! ]
This national [ LEFT-WING ANTI-FERTILIZER SURVEY ] further demonstrates our commitment [ ?!?! ] to monitor resources used and willingness to implement CHANGE [ i.e. TO IMPLEMENT THE RIDICULOUS DOCTRINE OF ARBITRARY AND UNNECESSARY FERTILIZER NUTRIENT REDUCTION ] for the BETTERMENT OF THE ENVIRONMENT. [ ?!?! ]
[ SO-CALLED BETTERMENT OF THE ENVIRONMENT IMPLIES THAT A DOCTRINE OF FERTILIZER REDUCTION IS SOMEHOW ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE. THIS IS WRONG ! FANATICAL TRADE ASSOCIATIONS ARE SPREADING ANTI-FERTILIZER PROPAGANDA ! WHY HAVE THESE TRADE ASSOCIATIONS SELF-DESIGNATED THEMSELVES AS CRITICS AGAINST GOLF SUPERINTENDENTS AND THEIR MANAGEMENT PRACTICES ! ]
BACKGROUND INFORMATION ― GOLF SUPERINTENDENTS MUST CONTINUE TO ASSUME THEIR RESPONSIBILITIES REGARDING HIGH-QUALITY PLAYING CONDITIONS ! ― The fertilizers tools and knowledge now available to the Golf Industry’s superintendents have never been better. It is abundantly clear that fertilizers are not only effective, but also safe for the environment. Left-wing anti-fertilizer Trade Associations should STOP dictating their INCOMPETENT ASSESSMENTS against the Golf Industry’s superintendents. These fertilizer tools provide what playing customers demand … HIGH-QUALITY PLAYING CONDITIONS. With these fertilizer tools, the Golf Industry’s superintendents have reached their pinnacle for potentially satisfying the demands of playing customers. Golfers DO NOT want to play on brown depressing and unplayable courses. The Golf Industry’s superintendents must STRONGLY OPPOSE the arbitrary doctrines of left-wing anti-fertilizer Trade Associations ! Superintendents must DEVELOP and publish their golf maintenance protocols and the performance standards expected by its playing customers. These protocols and standards MUST include the scientific use of ESSENTIAL FERTILIZER NUTRIENTS. These will STOP the left-wing anti-fertilizer Trade Associations !
The Golf Industry DOES NOT Harm Our Environment !
The Golf Industry’s superintendents must STRONGLY ADOPT THE POSITION that conventional fertilizer nutrients are scientifically-safe and will cause NO harm to the environment.
In fact, conventional fertilizer nutrients used by the Golf Industry DO NOT enter our lakes and rivers through surface run-off and storm sewers.
It is WRONG to allege that any ARBITRARY REDUCTION in ESSENTIAL FERTILIZER NUTRIENTS would be helpful environmentally.
This type of FANATICAL DOCTRINE will NOT lead to lower concentrations of contaminants in our environment.
The Golf Industry’s FANATICAL Trade Associations are spreading FALSE AND MISLEADING DOCTRINES against the use of ESSENTIAL, YES ESSENTIAL, FERTILIZER NUTRIENTS.
These FANATICAL Trade Associations are CONTRADICTING OVER TWENTY-FIVE YEARS OF RESEARCH, and proving that they have absolutely NO EXPERTISE regarding Soil Science and⁄or Essential Nutrient Management !
The Critical Issues That Must Be Addressed By The Golf Industry ― NOW !
In Canada, the Golf-Hating, Anti-Pesticide, & Environmental-Terrorist Organizations are DEMANDING …
NO PESTICIDE BAN EXCEPTION STATUS
FOR THE GOLF INDUSTRY
The following organizations have, since the mid-2000s, set their sights on the ANNIHILATION of the Golf Industry ― Canadian Cancer Society ( CCS ) • Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment ( CAPE ) • Canadian Coalition for Health and Environment ( CCHE ) • Canadian Environmental Law Association ( CELA ) • Coalition for Alternatives to Pesticides – Newfoundland & Labrador ( CAP-NL ) • David Suzuki Foundation • Ecojustice Canada • Equiterre ( Quebec Shield for David Suzuki Foundation ) • Green Party of Ontario • Liberal Party of Canada ( LPC ) • New Democratic Party of Canada ( NDP ) • New Democratic Party of Ontario ( NDP ) • Pesticide Free BC ( British Columbia Shield for Canadian Cancer Society ) • Pesticide Free Ontario ( PFO ) • Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario ( RNAO ) • Sierra Club of Canada.
TO AVOID ITS IMMINENT DEMISE, and the TOTAL LOSS of ALL of its conventional pest control products, the Golf Industry must IMMEDIATELY ADDRESS several CRITICAL ISSUES.
The Golf Industry must recognize that it is on a COLLISION COURSE with the LOOMING SHIPWRECK of Golf-Hating, Anti-Pesticide, and Anti-Fertilizer Terrorism !
Regardless of its Provincial Pesticide Ban Exception Statuses, the Golf Industry faces some huge challenges because of its HIGH DEGREE OF VULNERABILITY concerning several public affairs issues.
WE MUST DEFEND THE INDUSTRY AGAINST
LEFT-WING GOLF-HATING FANATICS,
WHATEVER THE COST MAY BE !
In order to successfully deter the malicious efforts of all Fanatical Golf-Hating, Anti-Pesticide, and Anti-Fertilizer Terrorists, the Golf Industry must immediately address the following CRITICAL ISSUES …
1. PEST CONTROL PRODUCTS ― The Golf Industry must STRONGLY ADOPT THE POSITION that conventional pest control products are scientifically-safe and will cause NO harm. The Golf Industry must also ADOPT the policy that the ONLY course of action against PROHIBITION is through litigation.
2. PESTICIDE EXCEPTION STATUS ― The Golf Industry must PLAN for the inevitable and total revocation of its exception status in most jurisdictions across Canada.
3. TRADE ASSOCIATIONS ― The Golf Industry’s Trade Associations must CEASE publicly supporting the PROHIBITION against conventional pest control products used in the urban landscape. They must also STOP conspiring to impose a doctrine of arbitrary and unnecessary fertilizer nutrient reduction. These Trade Associations must STOP torpedoing the Professional Lawn Care Industry.
4. FERTILIZERS ― The Golf Industry must also ADOPT the position that its use of any fertilizers DOES NOT harm the environment.
5. ANTI-PESTICIDE GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS & ACTIVISTS ― The Golf Industry must CEASE its pointless and wasteful attempts to educate and to convince pesticide-hating and fertilizer-hating government officials and activists. These fanatics will NEVER reverse their attitudes against conventional pest control products.
6. ANTI-GOLF/ANTI-PESTICIDE ORGANIZATIONS ― The Golf Industry must TERMINATE all relationships with all pesticide-hating and fertilizer-hating environmental organizations that conspire to prohibit against conventional pest control products, like Canadian Cancer Society, ( a.k.a. Prevent Cancer Now ), World Wildlife Fund ( a.k.a. Liberal Party of Canada ), and others. As long as Golf Canada, and the entire Golf Industry, continue to provide money to Canadian Cancer Society, the Golf Industry IS UNDER THREAT OF BEING ANNIHILATED !
7. RIGHT-TO-KNOW DATA-BASE ― The Golf Industry must CREATE a fully transparent data-base for right-to-know concerning its conventional pest control products.
8. INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT ( IPM ) ― The Golf Industry must CEASE focusing on the ineffective practices of Integrated Pest Management ( IPM ) as the solution to its public affairs problems. Trade Associations falsely allege that the best way to minimize inputs is through the use of Integrated Pest Management ( IPM ), despite the fact that, overall, IPM-cultural-practices DO NOT control pests of established turf and ornamentals. The Golf Industry must VIGOROUSLY EMBARK on a massive public relations campaign to discredit IPM-cultural-practices, declaring them as dismal failures.
9. ORGANIC PESTICIDE-FREE GOLF FACILITIES ― The Golf Industry must ESTABLISH policies for expelling golf facilities using this inaccurate and misleading term from its trade associations. Organic pesticide-free maintenance CANNOT be successful with green alternative pesticides and practices. Additionally, the Golf Industry must VIGOROUSLY EMBARK on a massive public relations campaign to discredit organic pesticide-free maintenance practices, declaring them as dismal failures.
10. GREEN ALTERNATIVE PESTICIDES ― The Golf Industry must DENOUNCE the so-called green alternatives to conventional pest control products as bogus. Green alternatives like hydrogen peroxide and compost tea DO NOT work, and may even be ILLEGAL.
11. ANTI-PESTICIDE TEACHING & RESEARCH INSTITUTIONS ― The Golf Industry must also DENOUNCE cultural practices as a so-called « legitimate alternative » to the use of conventional pest control products. Cultural practices DO NOT work in controlling pests.
12. MAINTENANCE PROTOCOLS ― The Golf Industry must DEVELOP and publish golf maintenance protocols and the performance standards expected by its playing customers. These protocols and standards MUST include the regular use of conventional pest control products.
13. GO BROWN ― BROWN IS BEAUTIFUL ?!?! ― The Golf Industry must STRONGLY OPPOSE go brown anti-cosmetic golf course maintenance. Golfers DO NOT want to play on brown depressing unplayable courses.
14. POLITICAL ACTION ― The Golf Industry must openly and financially SUPPORT all Conservative ( and U.S. Republican ) political candidates who oppose any PROHIBITION of pest control products and fertilizers. Whenever successfully elected to power, Liberals and New Democrats WILL ALWAYS CONSPIRE TO IMPOSE ARBITRARY PROHIBITION against ALL pest control products.
15. ANTI-PESTICIDE TEACHING & RESEARCH INSTITUTIONS ― The Golf Industry must TERMINATE all relationships with all teaching and research institutions, such as University of Guelph, that VALIDATE and SUPPORT the PROHIBITION against pest control products. ALL joint activities and educational seminars MUST BE ENDED for an indefinite period of time.

Communities and businesses are being HARMED and DESTROYED and RAPED by LUNATIC-TERRORISTS who ARBITRARILY AND RECKLESSLY IMPOSE PROHIBITIONS against pest control products used in the Urban Landscape and by the Agriculture Industry, and who PERPETRATE OTHER ACTS OF ENVIRONMENTAL TERRORISM.
We are living in the 9|11 Era of Anti Pesticide & Environmental Terrorism where at least ONE SUBVERSIVE ACT OF TERRORISM is perpetrated EVERY SINGLE DAY by LUNATIC-TERRORISTS.
A LUNATIC is a person whose actions and manner are marked by extreme recklessness.
The RECKLESS ACTS OF SUBVERSION by these LUNATIC-TERRORISTS has led to the ARBITRARY IMPOSITION of Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION in several jurisdictions throughout North America.
The result was CATASTROPHIC CARNAGE !
Because of LUNATIC-TERRORISTS, provinces like Ontario now have a TRAIL OF ECONOMIC DESTRUCTION WITH HUNDREDS OF SMALL BUSINESSES DESTROYED and THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE OUT OF WORK, a MORE DANGEROUS OUTDOOR ENVIRONMENT, and a BLACK MARKET IN PESTICIDES.
Only TRUE LUNATICS would wish to create a TRAIL OF ECONOMIC DESTRUCTION WITH HUNDREDS OF SMALL BUSINESSES DESTROYED and THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE OUT OF WORK.
Because of LUNATIC-TERRORISTS, we are living in the DARK AGE OF ANTI PESTICIDE TERRORISM where sound science is trumped by FAKE SCIENTISTS, JUNK SCIENCE and UNVERIFIABLE SECRET EVIDENCE through FABRICATION, INNUENDO, and INTERNET RUMOR ― scientific research PROVES that pest control products will CAUSE NO HARM and can be USED SAFELY.
An informed public is better able to protect itself and its communities and businesses from LUNATIC-TERRORISTS who are THE LEAST QUALIFIED TO PROVIDE ANY ADVICE about pest control products or the environment.
NORAHG is the National Organization Responding Against HUJE that seek to harm the Green space and other industries, and the well-being of our communities.
NORAHG morally represents the VAST SILENT MAJORITY of people associated with turf and ornamental plant maintenance who are OPPOSED to LUNATIC-TERRORISTS and their Anti Pesticide PROHIBITIONS, resulting in the CLOSURE or ABANDONMENT of green spaces under the RIDICULOUS PRETEXT CONCOCTED BY LUNATICS of somehow « saving » the environment.
NORAHG is a NATIONAL NON-PROFIT NON-PARTISAN organization that does not accept money from corporations or governments or trade associations, and represents NO VESTED INTERESTS WHATSOEVER.
NORAHG is dedicated to reporting PESTICIDE FREE FAILURES, as well as the work of RESPECTED & HIGHLY RATED EXPERTS who promote ENVIRONMENTAL REALISM and PESTICIDE TRUTHS.
NORAHG strikes back against the MYTHS concerning the need for prohibition against pest control products.
NORAHG RESPONDS on behalf of the VAST SILENT MAJORITY of THE PUBLIC THAT DOES NOT WANT PESTICIDE BANS, and SUPPORTS those who work in the Professional Lawn Care Industry, the Golf Industry, and the Agriculture Industry.
RESPECTED & HIGHLY RATED EXPERTS
THE MYTHS ABOUT BANNING PESTICIDES
VAST SILENT MAJORITY
NORAHG is opposed to PESTICIDE FREE jurisdictions where LUNATIC-TERRORISTS have DOOMED CHILDREN to SUFFER INJURIES since Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION inevitably leads to public and residential green spaces that become DANGEROUS AND PEST-INFESTED GARBAGE DUMPS.
