Fighting for Oregon's Environment:

What We Have Learned


Mr. McCloskey was born and raised in Oregon. He received his undergraduate degree from Harvard University and his J.D. from the University of Oregon School of Law. He worked for the national Sierra Club for forty years, and was the Club’s Executive Director from 1969-1985. During this time, national membership grew from 70,000 to a half a million and the Club helped to push Congress to pass over one hundred environmental laws. He currently serves as chair of the Heritage Tree Committee of Portland’s Urban Forestry Commission.

    I a wonder what Oregon Greens think of Thorium Nuclear Energy. I am certainly ecology friendly, and after doing some investigation I see it as possibly being an answer to our energy problems. Of course we would have to fight the Uranium Lobby and they seem very ensconced in opposing anything that would challenge their empire.

    If you are not aware of Thorium as a fuel, just wiki it and I think you will be amazed.

      There are a number of reactors under construction now. Unfortunately not is the USA so oil, gas and coal still reign over energy production. I doubt no more dams will be build and half expect that many, even on the Columbia will be removed in my lifetime. I hope so because from what I read every ecologist should be rooting for it. Very many of our climate change issues could be solved.
