AFP: Action Alert – Stop Global Warming Legislation in Oregon

AFP Oregon
February 24, 2010

Help AFP stop silly, unnecessary and wasteful “global warming” legislation in Oregon!  CLICK HERE to send an email to your State Senator opposing S 1059.

AFP-Oregon is urging its Members to contact their State Senator to urge a “No” vote on S 1059.  This bill would direct the Oregon Department of Transportation to implement policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Oregon.  With the case for human-caused climate change collapsing under the weight of deliberate lies and hidden and “fudged” data, Oregon’s State Government has no business wasting taxpayer money in this manner.

State agencies – including ODOT and the Department of Land Conservation and Development will spend money developing guidelines for “evaluating alternative land use and transportation scenarios that may reduce greenhouse gas emissions.”  It is clear that the heavy hand of government will be used under S 1059 to force businesses and individuals to develop properties in a way that will supposedly reduce greenhouse gas emissions.  Ultimately, this can only mean an effort to force development in such a manner that the number of automobile and truck trips are reduced.  Additionally, these new ODOT guidelines are unlikely to support ODOT’s primary purpose – the creation and maintenance of roadways for the use of private automobiles and commercial vehicles.

AFP Members are asked to CLICK HERE to send an email message to their State Senator urging a “No” vote on S 1059.

Thank you for standing up against junk science.

Yours In Freedom,

Jeff Kropf, State Director
