New Climate Assessment Report

Trump tried to bury the new Fourth Climate Assessment Report but we all need to know about it. The full report is 1600 pages, but it has a summary. Everybody should at least check out the summary and be familiar with it. You can find it at https://nca2018.globalchange.gov/ . It also has chapters that focus on regions of the country including one for the Pacific Northwest here: https://nca2018.globalchange.gov/chapter/24/

clear cutting our public lands bill needs your action today!

Hey Poppers. Today (well tomorrow, actually), is an important vote we need to weigh in on. Tomorrow the House will be voting on the mother of all clear cutting bills, stripping away protections and regulations for logging on public lands all over the US. It will exempt the Clean Water Act and Endangered Species protections against logging our public lands. This is the same bill that Walden drew upon when framing his clear cut bill for the Columbia Gorge Scenic Area. Please call the following congressmen today and ask them please NOT vote for HR 2936!

Come join Friends of the Gorge this Wednesday, Oct 18th!

Gorge on Tap - Oct. 18, in The Dalles

On October 18, you will learn about Friends ongoing advocacy and land trust fundraising campaigns however the focus will be mainly on the fires and will give updates on damage extent and expected recovery efforts.

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? Seriously? To read more: https://www.americanrivers.org/2017/10/legislative-overreach-salmon-reco...

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.

another attempted public land grab

Oregon Wild has drawn attention to HR 2936 which is co sponsored by Mr. Walden. The following is a "fact sheet" Oregon Wild published. Please let your MOC hear your opinion. John S
