Letter to the Editor – Cyndi Karp
Lincoln County Commissioners voted Wednesday at the Toledo City Council joint meeting to accept the Lincoln County Climate Change Partnership. Newport City Council agreed to do the same thing recently through their Newport Vision 2040 plan
Citizens’ Climate Lobby Newport representatives, Martin Desmond & Diane Pugh with the 350 Oregon Central Coast founder, Bill Kucha & Cyndi Karp, coordinated the request for the partnership to be formed.
We have agreed to work together as one for common goals – for a healthy ecosystem with clean water, air, soil, food and ocean for all species. We are joining together to give the citizen’s of Lincoln County a voice for the process of legislation for Climate Change and clean energy jobs coming into the 2019 state legislative session. Lincoln County is going to express our community rights to vote on local issues of Climate Change.
350OregonCentralCoast.org and CitizensClimateLobby.org/Newport, invites other Oregon groups and citizens to join us in having a vote in a Lincoln County Climate Change Partnership. A local grassroots Climate Change “take action now” group supports clean energy and jobs, cap and invest, sustainable forests and heavier sequestration (uptake) of carbon dioxide.
There are a lot of Lincoln voters that want to stop pollution of our one ecosystem called Earth. Be the solution – not the cause of Climate Change’s exponential acceleration that could lead to human extinction.
Thank you Newport & Lincoln County Commissioners for making the wise decision to begin the Lincoln County Climate Change Partnership. A Win/Win for Climate Change. Take action. Join us.
