Roseburg #Climate Strike

On September 20th, the League of Women Voters of Umpqua Valley, Douglas County Global Warming Coalition, and Umpqua Watersheds are joining the Climate Strikes Coalition and 350.org partners from around the world to activate thousands of people around the country who want real solutions to the climate crisis.

FC_CS_Social-09-6%Hundreds of Climate Strike events are being planned across the country. People of all ages will come together in the streets all over the world on September 20th as part of a Global Climate Strike. And Roseburg citizens will be among them.

Join us on Friday, Sep. 20 at Noon to 1PM in front of Fred Meyer on Garden Valley Blvd. Bring your signs! Take photos! Be a participant. Be able to tell your children that you did something about this planetary emergency.

There’s no denying the climate crisis is already here. Over the years, we’ve watched storms, floods, fires and heat waves devastate communities from Puerto Rico to Portland. In the meantime, our elected officials have
continued to protect the oil, coal, and gas billionaires responsible for this crisis.

It doesn’t have to be this way. We know what the solutions are, and we have the means to implement them.

Together, we have the power to take our destiny out of the hands of fossil fuel billionaires and their corrupt enablers. Join us on Garden Valley Blvd. on September 20th for the Global Climate Strike.

Our communities, our planet, and our future depend on a climate movement that reaches all corners of this country. To change everything, it takes everyone — and with your help we can build a sustainable world for generations to come.

Please stand with us!

In Solidarity,

League of Women Voters of Umpqua Valley, Douglas County Global Warming Coalition, and Umpqua Watersheds.

We Say No to LNG

Here are comments that the League of Women Voters of Oregon have submitted to FERC in response to the DEIS of the Jordan Cove Energy Project LP, Docket No. CP17-495-000 and the Pacific Connector Pipeline LP, Docket No. CP17-494-000 on behalf of four Leagues in southern Oregon.

The opening paragraph:

 “Dear Ms. Bose: 

We write representing the League of Women Voters of Coos County (LWVCC), LWV of Umpqua Valley (LWVUV), LWV of Rogue Valley (LWVRV), and LWV of Klamath County (LWVKC). We are grassroots nonpartisan, political organizations operating in the four counties in Oregon that would be directly affected by the construction and operations of the proposed Jordan Cove Liquefied Natural Gas (JCLNG) and Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline (PCGP), commonly referred to collectively as the Jordan Cove Energy Project (JCEP). Our detailed review of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for this project shows that the projects are in direct conflict with many of the state and national League of Women Voters positions. These positions are based on study documents and consensus evaluations regarding natural resources, water quality and air quantity, climate change, offshore and coastal management, land use, public health and safety, energy conservation, and seismic risks.

The League and No LNG

The state League of Women Voters of Oregon, along with four local Leagues, Rogue Valley, Klamath Falls, Coos County, and Umpqua Valley, submitted comments on August 15, 2018 requesting denial of all permitting applications.1532567086475

The League of Women Voters of Oregon —

 “believes that natural resources should be managed as interrelated parts of life-supporting ecosystems. Resources should be conserved and protected to assure their future availability. Pollution of these resources should be controlled in order to preserve the physical, chemical and biological integrity of ecosystems and to protect public health.” The League of Women Voters of Oregon (LWVOR) “. . . opposes degradation of all of Oregon’s surface and ground water. . . .” and declares that climate change is the greatest environmental challenge of our generation. 

We must protect the natural resources we have now. We must stand in solidarity!
