RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
A geologist could explain this better than I can, but just think of this state and its clay soils west of the Cascades (that I've seen turn to jelly in small eathquakes) and its waterways. Oregon is crisscrossed by rivers. And then consider the volcanic Cascade mountains (I was driving south from the San Juans close to Mt St. Helens when it blew in 1980).
Anyone with any vision for future generations in this state or anyone who has heard about the existing LNG pipelines that develop leaks with dire repercussions for miles around or anyone who thinks there might be an earthquake in Oregon in the future couldn't possibly support these pipelines. It isn't common sense. We need off this merry-go-round of fossil fuels. No transition. Cold turkey.
