Jack Leishman: Vote for Golden
By Jack Leishman | Ashland Daily Tidings | October 11, 2018
One of the most urgent issues in our lives is the rapidity of atmospheric warming. We no longer need worry about sounding like Chicken Little. The enormity of the issue is here and now.
Jeff Golden is aware, and has been aware for years, of the catastrophic possibilities looming large. His approach to the issue is to take action where action can be taken, right now. This includes strategically managing our forests so they become healthier and more fire resilient (not clearcutting); this includes stopping the Jordan Cove LNG project, which would be the largest fossil fuel emitter in the state. Jeff’s opponent claims to not support Jordan Cove, but in her role with the Medford Chamber, she clearly is in support of the project.
A vote for Jeff Golden is a vote for a healthier Oregon and a healthier planet for all of us now, and for future generations.
