fossil fuels


For a guy in the minority party in the Senate, Jeff Merkley knows how to make headlines. 

He certainly did so this week, with a proposal (shared with Sen. Bernie Sanders) to stop leasing federal lands for fossil fuel extraction. 

He makes a rare studio visit to discuss the proposal. 

Sen. Merkley, who came from Southern Oregon, supports the Jordan Cove natural gas export plan, despite his position on the new fossil fuel bill.

Do you think your city (or county or state) should ban pit bulls or any other breed of dog?

Would you like your city (etc.) to drop any investments in fossil fuel companies?
Let's hear what you think...
