RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Rather than a photo of a stove top, why not a photo of a hurricane or a 47 mile long clear cut? More LNG lines in Oregon would create permanent clear cuts and only worsen climate change giving rise to all kinds of climate related problems (ie increased numbers of hurricanes, flooding, etc).
We should focus on alternative energy sources, reduce energy demand, and do what we can to protect some of the worlds best carbon sinks: Oregon's forests. Recent studies show that Oregon has 6 of the top 10 carbon storing forests in the country. Cutting them down to put in more gas pipelines is going in the opposite direction we should be going.
