Forest & People
Challenging Wall Street Forestry
Who owns Oregon’s private forests and why do they they pay so few taxes? What does the climate crisis mean for Oregon’s Wall Street owned forests? The CRA is working on forest proposals linked to the Green New Deal.
Communities & the Living Ocean
Protecting & preserving communities in the era of climate change.
Coastal communities depend on the beauty of the coast and the bounty of the ocean. We are working to protect the ocean by conserving coastal resources, supporting the state's marine research program for near shore reserves and educating about the impact of the climate crisis on the oceans of the world.

Speaking Truth to Power
“climate change beyond the next few decades will depend primarily on the amount of greenhouse (heat-trapping) gases emitted globally and on the remaining uncertainty in the sensitivity of Earth’s climate to those emissions (very high confidence). With significant reductions in the emissions of greenhouse gases, the global annually averaged temperature rise could be limited to 3.6°F (2°C) or less. Without major reductions in these emissions, the increase in annual average global temperatures relative to preindustrial times could reach 9°F (5°C) or more by the end of this century (high confidence).”
