It’s important to shout out not only what we oppose (Shell Oil, Arctic drilling, coal & oil ports, secret trade agreements), but also what our positive vision is.
Luckily, a couple of state initiatives encapsulate that positive vision: CarbonWA and WAmend. OCA has committed to gather signatures on both. Won’t you help? Memorial Day pays tribute to those who gave their lives for freedom and to protect their loved ones, and what better way to live your life in their spirit than to get out on the street supporting those principles?
Our local WAmend organizer has posted this calendar/signup sheet on the Web: http://www.huntcal.com/cal/view/MTA-Clallam/2014?vm=r. There are plenty of good places and times to gather signatures, such as the farmers markets and libraries, but the main thing is to get out there and do it!
RSVP and we can get you petitions.
BTW, CarbonWA still needs a local coordinator…could it be you?
Here are some excellent links from CarbonWA founder Yoram Bauman about the impact of the CarbonWA carbon tax on revenue, business, and the climate:
