RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
It would only take a day for a city dweller to "walk a mile" in the shoes of those who are under the threat of these projects to fully understand the struggle against LNG and associated pipelines in Oregon!
The misery and uncertainty caused by the Federal eminent domain process is unnecessary. Wyden and Merkley are on the right track to return the process to State control.
Oregon's energy future is for Oregonians to decide. We can't risk our future on the greed of foreign fossil fuel pushing speculators or "our" NW Nasty's need to expand into the California market to please profit hungry investors.
It is almost comic to watch "land agents" try to trick Oregonians into signing away land rights - like something out of the wild West days when the railroads stole land or the first oil speculators tricked landowners into bad deals (remember the movie "There Will be Blood"? - NOTHING HAS CHANGED!).
We are lucky that AG John Kroger, Oregon DEQ, Marine Fisheries, Wyden, Merkley, and a growing vocal chorus of Oregonians are standing up to protect our natural resources, our need for a sustainable energy future, and our private property rights.
Please join us! Spread the word: NO LNG/ NO PIPELINES!!!
