Coos Commons Protection Council

Jordan Cove Energy Partners’ Canadian owners spent almost $1 million to defeat a local measure for a sustainable energy future that would have halted the proposed LNG export terminal. If built, Jordan Cove and the associated 224 mile pipeline will become the single large greenhouse gas emitter in the entire state of Oregon.

Coos Commons continues to advocate for the rights of nature and is also partnering with Bittin Duggan of Growing Through It to provide direct outreach to the county’s homeless population who find it difficult to access public services.

Rights of Nature

…the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, and similar state laws – legalize environmental harms by regulating how much pollution or destruction of nature can occur under law. Rather than preventing pollution and environmental destruction, our environmental laws instead codify it. In addition, under commonly understood terms of preemption, once these activities are legalized by federal or state governments, local governments are prohibited from banning them.

Sustainable Agriculture

There is an immense governmental system that props up unsustainable food production at the expense of our communities. Agribusiness corporations use their “rights” under the law to prevent us from rejecting the damage offered up by conventional, large scale farming operations and mandating the type of agriculture that feeds our communities.

Hope is a longing for a future condition over which you have no agency. It means you are essentially powerless.
