It is worth noting that The Nature Conservancy, whatever it's founding principles may have been, is now funded by and serving the agenda of it's thousands of corporate donors, including ARCO, BHP, BP, Chevron, Chrysler, Coca-Cola, Dow Chemical, DuPont, General Electric, General Mills, General Motors, Georgia-Pacific, McDonalds, Mobil, NBC, Pepsi-Cola, PFizer, Procter and Gamble, and Toyota. By their size they are shifting the environmental debate to so-called "free-market environmentalism". These donors know that TNC will not let out a peep, as they exercise their "private property rights" by fracking, mountain-top removal, clearcutting, and polluting air, water, and earth.
Reuters, 2009: Henry Paulson, head of Goldman Sachs and also president of the coopted Nature Conservancy, along with other neocons gave 173 billion when Secretary of the Treasury to Maurice Greenberg's AIG, an insurance scam cartel with over 17 million accounts in over 100 countries. AIG in return has given some back to Paulson's Goldman Sachs. As head of the US Treasury, Paulson used the IRS as snoops on call girls to frame Gov Eliot Spitzer as revenge for Spitzer's having indicted him and Greenberg. Rupert Murdoch helped in the frame. Paulson as president of Nature Conservancy turned the wilderness shrines into cattle ranches, presumably to supply Goldman Sachs' fast food investments with the flesh of animals. Henry Paulson etc have given 173 billion to AIG which in return gave $ to Henry Paulson's group: Goldman Sachs
What you have completely failed to mention is that at least some (perhaps all?) of the one- way to two-way conversions will entail the removal of parking from both sides of the street, which will make continuation of the businesses and residences there impossible. Nor did you offer any explanation of how it is imagined that the two-ways or roundabouts will improve traffic flow.
