SOCAN Comments on LC19

We now know that among the activities in which we engage, the greatest source of greenhouse gas emissions is the combustion of the very fossil fuels that brought us so much economic success. -Dr. Alan Journet

If loss (from green house gas emissions and climate change) of our natural world and natural beauty isn’t alarming enough, we should remember that our agriculture, our fisheries, and our forestry are dependent on the same climatic conditions as the natural world. Indeed, they ARE our natural world. Thus, just as we risk losing our natural world, we risk losing our food and fiber. -Dr. Alan Journet
