Walden continues to defy science

Guess who's at it again? As in guess who's one of the cosponsors of this bill (HR3144) that basically wants to let Hydro blow off both the Endangered Species Act (Salmon Recovery) AND allow Hydro to continue operating in a manner the US Courts have recently deemed currently irreparably damaging (to Salmon) and not even allow them to investigate possible immediate options?

Walden's Clearcut Act needs your action!

Come on, you Indivisible “POPers”, let’s get on the phone and let Walden’s office hear from us about what he’s trying to do right here in our back yard with his latest HR 3715 “Scenic Columbia Gorge Restoration Act”. He’s taking advantage of the media hype over the recent Eagle Creek fire to require restoration "response activity" (commercial clearcutting) of multiple areas in increments up to 10,000 acres each that has been “impacted” (no definition of what constitutes an impact) INSIDE the Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area.
