7,300±-Acre Louisiana Property with Mitigation Credits to Auction with No Reserve via Concierge Auctions

A mitigation credit opportunity makes this offering an incredibly lucrative one—I’ll be encouraging all of my clients to consider registering to bid before this one gets away.”

— Dwayne Hargroder, listing agent

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, August 2, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — This Southern Louisiana slice of paradise (with a mitigation credit opportunity) is available for the first time since the original Louisiana Land Grants and will auction next month via Concierge Auctions in cooperation with Dwayne Hargroder of Hargroder Real Estate Group. Currently listed for $30M, the property will sell with No Reserve to the highest bidder. Bidding is scheduled to be held on August 26–31 via Concierge Auctions’ online marketplace, ConciergeAuctions.com, allowing buyers to bid digitally from anywhere in the world.

“We’re incredibly excited to be partnering with Concierge Auctions for the first time on such an exclusive opportunity,” stated Hargroder. “The amount of acreage offered in this package is simply unmatched, and has the potential to become anything the new owner might imagine. A mitigation credit opportunity makes this offering an incredibly lucrative one—I’ll be encouraging all of my clients to consider registering to bid before this one gets away.”

Stretching over 7,300-acres of Louisiana’s finest recreational land, this acreage features a sprawling luxury lodge and private heliport. There is no place better to hunt ducks than the 3,000-acre private marshland, and the remaining 4,000+-acres could be anything the discerning investor desires, and are currently set up as income-generating leased farmland. Set out by water from the private boat launch to fish in White Lake, just a few scenic minutes away. The stunning main lodge is ready to welcome groups of any size, with warm hardwood floors and richly paneled ceilings, complete with rustic exposed beams. Gather around the floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace or roomy breakfast bar in the spacious kitchen. Watch the wide open starry skies come nightfall by the firepit between the main lodge and private heliport. With accommodations for up to 30 in the main lodge and separate bunkhouse with a second kitchen, entertaining is a breeze. Additional features include: a private heliport; a lodge with warm hardwood floors and wood ceilings with exposed barn beams; floor to ceiling natural stone fireplaces; a bright, spacious kitchen with stainless steel appliances and breakfast bar; and multiple outbuildings with enough bunks to host over 15 people—all just minutes to White Lake by boat and an hour from Lafayette.

"Something that we’ve learned over the past year while watching the market is simple: the time to sell is now," stated Joel Broussard, seller. "We’re confident in Concierge Auctions’ platform and are pleased with the ability to be able to sell our property on our timeline, something that you can’t take for granted in today’s luxury property marketplace. We’re eager to name a new buyer who will appreciate this property as much as we have. We want the next steward to continue to care for this very unique property and perhaps find new, innovative uses for it."

Easy access to Hwy 82 doesn’t impede upon the property’s privacy thanks to a long drive between the main road and the front door. Beautiful Abbeville, only 30 minutes away, pays homage to its French heritage with more than just its name: wander Magdalen Square in the picturesque downtown to enjoy the historic St. Mary Magdalen Church and spectacular shopping. Vibrant Lafayette beckons from the heart of Louisiana’s Cajun and Creole country, ripe with food, music, and culture a short drive away. Perfect your drive at any of Louisiana’s incredible golf clubs, including the 17 distinct courses within Louisiana’s Audubon Golf Trail, boasting courses designed by Arnold Palmer, David Toms, and Pete Dye. Admire paradise from new heights via the property's private heliport for easy access. Abbeville offers a municipal airport only 35 minutes away, or 60 minutes to Lafayette Municipal Airport.

Olivia Rae Farms is available for showings by appointment, and for private virtual showings.

The hybrid workplace in 2025 – Reimagine, rethink, redefine

Over a year into the ‘new normal, organizations and employees alike have substantially adapted to working remotely.

Over a year into the ‘new normal, organizations and employees alike have substantially adapted to working remotely. Over a year into the ‘new normal, organizations and employees alike have substantially adapted to working remotely.

Ashish Syngal, VP, Customer Success & Key Accounts, ProHance

Ashish Syngal, VP, Customer Success & Key Accounts, ProHance

Since the onset of the pandemic, the workplace setup has been redefined and restructured to a hybrid model that will continue to prevail…

Quantifiable data helps in giving direction on how time can be managed better. It can be a motivator if the employees are empowered to view their key time metrics and make self-driven improvements.”

— Ashish Syngal, VP, Customer Success & Key Accounts, ProHance

NEW DELHI, DELHI, INDIA, August 2, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The switch to remote workplaces had to be swift in 2020, with very little time to plan. Moving to a remote working setup was a step in the right direction to ensure employees’ safety and well-being. As with any new structure, there were hiccups on the way ranging from logistics like transporting desktops to ensuring stable internet connections and collaborating virtually with very limited physical interactions.

"Having conquered the logistical issues, organizations are now facing deeper issues with the hybrid workforce. Unlike the office space, remote working provides inadequate visibility into the availability of human capital. Leaders and supervisors depend on individual interactions to make sense of the human resources available to them; which is ineffective and extremely time-consuming. A simple activity like tracking day-on-day attendance across teams has turned into a Herculean task that requires additional hours to be spared. This translates into endless hours if the teams are large and spread across multiple locations," says Ashish Syngal, VP, Customer Success & Key Accounts, ProHance.

It comes as no surprise that employees are being overworked across teams, groups, and functions. The fine line between personal and professional life has blurred even further with zero commute time and no contact with the outside world. In the last few months, stress levels have been at an all-time high because of the raging pandemic and the government or self-imposed lockdowns. The multitude of extra hours at work did not help. Many businesses have stepped up and launched initiatives to promote mental well-being for their employees, however, the root cause for the stress mostly remains unaddressed. The extra working hours are constantly pushing employees towards a burnout-like situation. If not resolved in time, it can lead to poor performance, lower outputs, and even attrition. Leaders and managers must have visibility into the workload that is assigned to individuals and balance the load within and across teams. The access to ready-to-use, meaningful data can help managers launch relevant training initiatives or make informed hiring decisions for load balancing. In addition to that, this data can save a considerable amount of managers’ time as they can have need-based interventions. In the corporate world, time is quite literally, money!

Consider this – as a manager responsible for a large team of 20 associates working out of different locations, you have a time-sensitive task you wish to allocate to a team member. Without the power of workforce management tools, the manager can either allocate the job to the proactive associate or a good performer. Chances are, this individual may already be overworked. The other approach is to connect with all team members to gain insights about how they’re placed – and as it sounds, this approach is time-consuming and dissolves the urgency of the task itself. Real-time data on how the teams are placed can solve this at the click of a button.

The employees have an important perspective here, because of which they feel directionless about their performance, efficiency, and productivity metrics. Virtual meetings are only half as effective as in-person meetings. The employees can feel overwhelmed when there is no clear communication on the organizational expectations in terms of productivity and efficiency. If employees have a way to check those definitions and even compare their own metrics with those of the group, it can make a world of difference. Quantifiable data helps in giving direction on how time can be managed better, and when to ask for help. It can be a huge motivator at an individual level if the employees are empowered to view their key time metrics and make self-driven improvements.

The occupational hazards of a remote workplace setup have revealed themselves over the last year. It is a modern-day problem that requires modern, cutting-edge solutions – especially ones that evolve with the changing times.

ProHance is a workforce management tool that provides measurable insights on human capital, making organizations more agile to achieve operational goals. It is like a digital, wearable device that gives makes fitness data trackable – and helps individuals work towards fitness goals. With the help of a robust measurement system and trackable data – organizations can optimize processes, enhance overall productivity, and promote a healthy work-life balance.

H1 Performance Solidifies AirCarbon Exchange’s International Reach and Position as a Leading Global Carbon Exchange

The exchange has executed transactions representing over 3.6 million carbon credits in the first half of 2021.

ABU DHABI, LONDON, NEW YORK, SINGAPORE, August 2, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — AirCarbon Exchange (ACX), the world’s first fully digital exchange for voluntary carbon credits with real-time trading and settlement, has executed transactions representing 3,603,284 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (tCO2e) during the first 6 months of 2021. Most of the trading on the exchange has been on the CET (CORSIA Eligible Token) contract, making it one of the world’s most traded carbon contracts. Open interest on the exchange continues to increase, from 854,366 tCO2e as at June 30, 2021 to 1,115,266 tCO2e currently.

ACX has solidified its international reach by attracting over 130 clients across 29 countries. In the second half of 2021, ACX will continue to expand its global footprint with offices in Abu Dhabi, London and Canada. During this first half, ACX has doubled its personnel and continues to expand and strengthen its team.

ACX has also grown its ecosystem of partnerships with companies at the forefront of innovation in the carbon industry, strengthening the quality, service and product offerings on the exchange. ACX is the first exchange to integrate BeZero’s carbon ratings to assess the quality of voluntary carbon credits. The exchange has also partnered with Abaxx to develop carbon solutions for the LNG market and with Flovtec to enhance liquidity of tokens on the exchange. Additional partnerships include established carbon market entities such as Redshaw Advisors, BLOCK C and EQAO.

Thom McMahon, CEO and Co-Founder of AirCarbon Exchange said: “It has been an incredibly exciting time since we started trading in January. We have grown significantly and it is clear that the exchange offers much needed transparency and liquidity to the voluntary carbon market. Our client list continues to grow and we have partnered with some excellent innovators in the industry. We won’t be slowing down any time soon.”

Bill Pazos, Managing Director and Co-Founder of AirCarbon Exchange said: “First and foremost I want to thank the 130+ companies that have helped us get to this milestone.

Even in light of rock-solid evidence that debunks the myths supporting the removal of Klamath River dams, some media outlets are sitting-on the facts. WHY?

Geologic and engineering evidence prove there was no Salmon migration on the Klamath River past Ward Canyon for thousands of years, the present-day site of Copco 1 dam”

— William E. Simpson II – Naturalist

YREKA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, August 1, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Key Premise and reason promoted by advocates for removing the Klamath River dams, as proposed by the shell corporation, Klamath River Renewal Corporation's ('KRRC') is FAKE :

1) Geologic and engineering evidence prove there was no Salmon migration past Ward Canyon for thousands of years (site of Copco 1 dam).

Salmon couldn't have migrated past the series of high natural lava dams that blocked fish migration at Ward Canyon for many millennia. Ward Canyon is the present-day site of Copco 1 dam.

Under ideal conditions, salmon can jump a maximum of 12-feet. So even the smallest of the series of natural lava dams, standing at 31-feet-tall, would easily stop Salmon migration.

The highest of the series of natural lava dams that blocked fish migration at Ward Canyon stood for thousands of years.

That lava dam was 130-feet tall, which was as high as the current man-made Copco 1 dam, and that ancient 130-foot-tall lava dam formed a lake ('Clammittee Lake') equivalent in size to the modern-day Copco Lake, which sits in the same foot-print of the ancient Clammittee Lake.

In 1911, when the famous engineer and dam builder J.C. Boyle arrived at Ward Canyon on the Klamath River to begin construction of the Copco 1 dam, he saw and recorded the *existing* 31-foot tall natural lava dam that was holding-back the Klamath River into a large natural lake called 'Clammittee Lake'.

This natural 31-foot tall lava dam and Clammittee Lake had existed for thousands of years and into modern times (1911). As a result of that longstanding lake, a myriad of lifeforms established habitats in and around Clammittee Lake.

If these critical habitats are suddenly removed by removing the dams and draining the lakes, that longstanding intricate web-of-life will collapse, resulting in the loss of untold numbers of rare, threatened and endangered species.

As Geology and recorded documents from 1911 show, Nature, not man, ordained that fish would not migrate past this point on the Klamath River.

Given the foregoing facts, it becomes very clear that even the notion of installing fish-ladders in this area is ill-advised!

Nature had barred fish migration for millennia past Ward Canyon, so a sudden change in that, would likely create a whole new set of problems!

These natural fish barriers arguably allowed what is known as allopatric speciation to occur, and the resulting 'Redband trout', which are actually a land-locked salmon that are most closely related to steelhead, and not to sockeye or coho salmon. Interestingly the natural range for Redband trout on the Klamath River is exclusively 'up-river' from Ward Canyon according to experts.

Redband trout can reach 24-30 inches in size and up to 30-pounds in weight. As a result of their size, in the 1800's fisherman called them salmon, because they resembled salmon. In the archeological digs of the Klamath and Modoc tribes, no salmon heads or jaw bones have been found, only body bones.

It is well known that the largest indigenous tribe in the area of Ward Canyon was the Shasta Tribe. In fact, the entirety of the portion of the Klamath River where the Klamath dams are located are on the lands that were exclusively inhabited by the Shasta.

The Shasta, and no other tribe, fished the area immediately above and below the lava dams on the Klamath River, and they caught both anadromous and non-anadromous salmonoids.

Anadromous Salmon were traded to the Klamath and Modoc tribes by the Shasta. These anadromous Salmon had their heads removed and they were taken on poles to other tribes for trade.

This of course explains the archaeological results of no heads or jaws of anadromous salmon on tribal lands of the Klamath and Modoc tribes.

On top of the foregoing hard science and engineering evidence, we now also have a board member of the Klamath River Renewal Corporation, Mr. Glen Spain saying that removing dams is about money, not salmon!

More about that here: https://www.einnews.com/pr_news/546614530/compelling-facts-condemn-krrc-s-proposed-klamath-river-dam-removal-plan

It's important to note that the non-profit shell corporation, Klamath River Renewal Corporation (KRRC) was created in full cooperation with PacificCorp as a means to shield PacificCorp from the massive liabilities that are associated to what is easily the most risk-laden dam removal project ever proposed!

2) The Klamath River Basin Compact Act (the 'Act') is controlling federal law;

This Congressional Act provides for 'beneficial uses' of the water impounded by the dams to the People of Jackson County and Oregon, and Siskiyou County and California.

Siskiyou County California and Jackson County Oregon were signatories to the ACT, and arguably are material signatories to the Act, as well as Congress and the President of the United States of America.

In regard to distribution of water under the Act, priorities in order are:

(a) Domestic use,
(b) Irrigation use,
(c) Recreational use, including use for fish and wildlife,
(d) Industrial use,
(e) Generation of hydroelectric power,
(f) Such other uses as are recognized under the laws of the state involved.

(Note: Industrial use arguably refers to water for wildfire fire-suppression; and even though it is not codified, the dams do in fact provide material flood control protections for communities and infrastructure down-river from the dams)

3) The loss of the lakes and critical shoreline ecosystems and habitats will devastate the resident threatened and endangered species of flora and fauna.

The loss of this critical habitat, which was established over millennia in and around 'Clammittee Lake', will also adversely affect resident and migratory birds that are strictly protected from 'incidental taking' by California law and Assembly Bill AB-454, Migratory birds: California Migratory Bird Protection Act.

https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billTextClient.xhtml?bill_id=201920200AB454

According to a 2006 Department of Interior publication; there are hundreds of species of flora and fauna, and that flora and fauna will be placed at risk if Copco and Iron Gate lakes are drained:

The eleven-miles of the Klamath River Canyon where these lakes are located contains an amazing diversity of wildlife, including 89 species of birds, dozens of reptiles and amphibians, several species of fish and 71 species of plants including trees, grasses and forbs. Some species of this localized flora and fauna are threatened or endangered.

These, and other facts related to the impacts of dam removal on the environment and ecosystem have been understated and obfuscated by dam-removal proponents, largely made-up of the minority-consensus groups and fishing-zealots supporting KRRC's reckless plan.

4) Copco and Iron Gate Lakes are formed by two of the four Klamath River dams. They hold a reserve of 45-Billion gallons of fresh water that is desperately needed, during what experts predict will be a period of extreme drought caused by Climate Change. The critical reserve of fresh water is essential for fighting catastrophic wildfires.

These two lakes hold a reserve of 45-Billion gallons of precious fresh water that is desperately needed for domestic wells (drinking, bathing and cooking).

Copco and Iron Gate lakes also provide a critical source of easily accessible water for firefighting aircraft (airplanes that scoop water and helicopters) tankers and fire-engines.

5) The budget for KRRC's proposed Klamath River dam-removal project is seriously inadequate!

There is no doubt that the half-decade-old obsolete $450-million (so-called “guaranteed budget”) budget that KRRC has pitched, is grossly inadequate.

A more realistic budget, is closer to $900-Million given the inflation over the half-a-decade since the now obsolete budget was calculated, coupled with huge cost increases (doubling) for construction related costs over the past year (2020-2021) due to COVID economics.

There is also no doubt whatsoever that the proposed project is laden with huge unprecedented risks, as never seen before, at every phase. And those risks and massive liabilities are like a hot potato that Pacific Corp wanted to dump. And now it seems they may have; right into the laps of California and Oregon taxpayers.

And, in a recent Decision and Order by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (‘FERC’), item number 34 warns that:

“As part of the January 13, 2021 transfer application, the States of Oregon and California have agreed to be co-licensees with the Renewal Corporation; thus, the States will not be shielded from liability.”

We have already seen smaller project outcomes that spell disaster for the massively underfunded KRRC dam removal budget, which puts Oregon and California taxpayers on the hook, for what could be a massive financial liability at a time when state budgets are strained to the max from COVID and wildfire disasters.

History of a much smaller dam removal project cost over-runs; a red flag for the larger more complex Klamath dam removal project.

According to the Penninsula Daily News in Port Angeles Washington:

The estimated cost of removing the Elwha and Glines Canyon dams from the Elwha River has increased from the original cost projection of $135 million in 2001, to later projected cost of $308-million.

Another accounting of the ‘projected costs’ regarding removal of the two Elwha dams compared to the actual costs should be a red-flag for the costs of the much larger and far more ambitious project and estimated budge of $450-million to remove four Klamath River dams:

“Removal of the Elwha Dam began in September 2011 and was finished in spring 2012, ahead of schedule. Removal of the second dam, the Glines Canyon Dam, was completed on August 26, 2014. The dam removal process was originally projected to last two and a half to three years. The estimated cost of removing both dams was $40 to $60 million. The total cost of the Elwha River restoration is approximately $351.4 million.” ~ Wiki

In the foregoing example, the smaller and simpler 2-dam removal project compared to the four dams on the Klamath River, the costs on that project tripled from what was originally projected.

And in the case of Elwha River dams, the potential for environmental, ecological and private property damages were far less.

The budget for the removal of the four (4) dams on the Klamath River was calculated using economic costs and metrics that were already many years old prior to the beginning of COVID economics, which began in 2020.

Of course, anyone in business knows that if you projected costs are based on a ‘best case’ outcome, and a mediocre, or worse yet, a bad outcome evolves, costs, damages and liabilities can escalate very quickly and steeply.

There’s no doubt that dam construction, and dam destruction requires road construction, bridges, trucking, heavy equipment, materials, labor, fuels and insurance. Therefore, the following comparison is valid.

The Associated General Contractors of America has issued a new report and graph-analyses showing the huge impacts that COVID economics (period April 2020 thru February 2021) has had on skyrocketing costs related to construction projects.

The Associated General Contractors of America study exemplifies the huge cost increases and long delays that have only recently occurred, and certainly years-after KRRC’s budget projections for their dam removal project were calculated.

For the purpose of cost-impact analyses, the COVID economics study began in April 2020 thru February 2021. (https://www.agc.org/sites/default/files/AGC 2021 Inflation Alert – Ver1.1.pdf).

The Q-1 2021 Associated General Contractors of America report stated:

"The construction industry is currently experiencing an unprecedented mix of steeply rising materials prices, snarled supply chains, and staffing difficulties, combined with slumping demand that is keeping many contractors from passing on their added costs”.

This brand-new report from the Associated General Contractors of America report spells financial disaster for KRRC’s project.
And the burden of that disaster will surely fall upon the weary shoulders of California and Oregon taxpayers.

All things considered, and based upon what we do know, a budget in the realm of $900-million dollars would be in line with proper updates and adjustments to the old budget of only $450-million.
