The team also suggests developing a plan to retire coal-fired power plants. After the first 100 days, proposals include investing millions in “green” and “renewable” energy, making methane digesters for livestock more affordable for farmers, promoting biofuels, hiring more women and minorities at USDA and pushing USDA to work more closely with the EPA." KBC NOTE: So, does this mean a Biden administration would preserve our "green renewable-energy" Klamath hydroelectric dams?
OREGON: Governor Brown is for democracy, just not your vote "Oregon Gov. Kate Brown has signed an executive order directing state agencies to reduce Oregon’s greenhouse gas emissions through more stringent standards for fuels, new buildings and consumer appliances, imposing by fiat what she was denied by Republican legislators...Republican legislators who walked out wanted the Democrat majority to put their plan on the ballot so Oregonians could give it an up or down vote. We agreed that a measure that would radically impact the economy while having an infinitesimal impact on the climate should be put to a vote..."

Manmade CO2 is estimated at 3% of the atmospheric CO2 and it has been found that natural variations exceed that percentage. CO2 is approximately 1,560,000th of the total atmospheric gas and is essential for all life on Earth....Think about our transportation system. It is mostly dependent on fossil fuels, as is much of our residential heating. Are you ready to give up your cars and trucks? How about farmers and ranchers with their diesel powered tractors?..."

BOR study to tackle climate change threats. Crop modification and river restoration among options, H&N, 2/24/15. "Greg Addington, executive director of the Klamath Water Users Association, said any study will be incomplete unless it includes water needs for fish and wildlife...He pointed out that the Tribes should be part of any long-term water storage discussion." " Implementing strategies could improve delivery efficiency, reduce demand, reduce losses, and support water acquisition and transfers, and restoration projects, McGinnis said....Strategy examples include modifying crop use and acreage, increasing water storage, increasing streamflow, river restoration and implementing the Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement.
