Gordon Smith Carried Their Water

In 2002, U.S. Sen. Gordon Smith (R-OR) coordinated with the White House to divert Klamath River water to Oregon farmers. That short sighted decision resulted in the deaths of 70,000 salmon and countless fishing businesses along the California coast.

Next Tuesday Oregon voters have a chance to divert Gordon Smith out of the U.S. Senate

The North Pole has become an island for the first time in human history.

Four weeks ago, tourists had to be evacuated from Baffin Island's Auyuittuq National Park in northern Canada because of flooding from thawed glaciers.

The park's name means 'land that never melts'.

VOTE THE ENVIRONMENT!

Dsc_0952

Your individual vote in the midterm elections has the power to affect numerous environmental issues. The candidates you choose will, in effect, decide the fate of our natural environment.

    * With an additional two votes, the Senate would have removed Arctic National Wildlife Refuge drilling from the Budget.
    * The current leadership in the House has proposed selling off 15 National Parks, gutting the Endangered Species Act and cutting funding for environmental protection by $2.85 billion.
    * The fate of our National Forests, especially pristine roadless areas, now hinge on Governors taking a stand in the next two years.
    * To date, 248 Mayors from 41 states have endorsed the US Mayors Climate Protection Agreement, which strives to meet or beat the Kyoto Protocol targets in their own communities, through actions ranging from anti-sprawl policies to urban forest restoration projects to public information campaigns.  VIA Patagonia  LINK
