Soil health is key to climate protection: Know your local farmer, support your local farms

12/20/2018

Picture



by Bonnie Preston, Vice Co-chair

Probably everyone worried about climate change knows that approximately 50% of greenhouse gas emissions are due to our industrial agriculture system. Picture the huge tractors in the fields, the thousands of miles that semi-trailers travel getting food from the farms to the supermarkets, and the methane from the manure lagoons.


However, probably the most destructive thing (at least equal to the human health problems caused by processed food) has been the killing of the soil. The heavy use of of chemical fertilizers, poisons (pesticides and herbicides), the monoculture crops and GMO seeds is keeping the soil from being the carbon sink it used to be.

    Has the time come for creating a public bank in Portland?



    Too-Big-To-Fail banks are tied to high risk speculative investing for the benefit of the bank's major stock holders.

    Currently, the city's deposits are held by private banking establishments. What could happen if, instead of supporting those banks via our city's use of those banks, we created a locally owned public bank to cycle city revenues back into the local economy?

    How much additional revenue from such a cycling of city revenues into a city public bank would be generated for investment in affordable and low-income housing, infrastructure and community-based economic development?

    Walt McFee, chair of the Public Banking Institute, addressed how public banking is being explored around the nation, including in Seattle and Santa Fe, and how Portland could benefit from exploring the options and opportunities presented by formation of a municipal public bank.

    This event was Sponsored by Economic Justice Action Group of First Unitarian Church, Alliance for Democracy
    Admission: donations were requested, but no one was turned away for lack of funds.
    Doors opened at 6:30 PM

It was a crisis more than 60 years in the making.

The Umatilla Basin in northeast Oregon is home to some of the state’s most productive farmland, famously growing more than 200 different crops including wheat, corn, potatoes and watermelon. Irrigation pivots dominate the countryside, transforming scrubby desert into lush, green fields.

The development of the region’s farms and cities, however, came at a price underground. As early as 1958, […]
