Steelheaders address global warming in Register-Guard

This week, Gabe O’Campo of Eugene (past president of the Emerald Empire Chapter of the Northwest Steelheaders) wrote a great column in the Register-Guard, calling on Oregon anglers to get behind global warming legislation, and specifically to pressure Gordon Smith to sign-on to the Warner-Lieberman Climate Security Act.From the article: Fisheries are being closed, guide trips are being canceled due to flooding, and warm water is killing our beloved cold water fish… The message from sportsmen is simple — all of our Oregon congressional leaders need to support legislation that begins reducing global warming pollution by 2 percent per year and gets us well on the path of what scientists say is necessary to avoid the most dangerous impacts from climate change. You can sign up with the National Wildlife Federation’s sportsmen campaign to get involved.
