Our Klamath Basin
Upholding rural Americans' rights to grow food,
own property, and caretake our wildlife and natural resources.
34 million acres of Oregon, 10/10/13
What is happening
to our beautiful western state of Oregon?
Why is the unemployment rate amongst the highest in the
USA? Why is the economy, health care, the
moral, broken? Libraries closed? Resources
locked up? Backroads closed so wildland fires
burn rampant frying little owls and bambies? Gas
prices highest in the US? Today environmental
lawsuits have shut down the timber industry in the
guise of saving the owls that they allowed to
burn up in 'protected' wildland fires. They are
now intending to decimate 4 hydrodams on the
Klamath and studying other dams to destroy,
which will destroy the local economies.
A comprehensive valuation of agriculture; a perpetual investment in Oregon's economy and environment, Oregon Department of Agriculture, 2012, by
Brent Searle, Policy Analyst/Economist.
"The world population is projected to reach 9 billion in another 30-40 years, necessitating between 50-100% more food than is currently produced. Imagine – an entire additional world of food production needed from the same land (or less) than we have now!
Food production capacity is a national security issue as much as anything else. The resources devoted to agriculture and food are national treasures that require preservation." (KBC NOTE: the KBRA downsizes Klamath Basin agriculture by 20-25% )
