Submission Text
We have to take action to curb the release of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Part of doing this is to stop investing in the fossil fuel industry. We cannot simply talk about mitigating antropogenic climate change with plans that start a decade or more in future. Salmon and steelhead populations are declining right now. Aquifer safety is declining now. Severe drought in the breadbasket of the United States is occurring now. The ocean temperature is increasing beyond levels suitable for its inhabitants now. It is essential for our region to focus on alternatives to fossil fuel powered economy. No terminal!
