DROUGHT-REDUCTION LEGISLATION: THE LINK BETWEEN FOREST AND RAIN
Did you ever think about where rain comes from? Everything is connected. Forests, park lands, plains and deserts in different parts of the world affect you right where you are. Tune in to Eco-Logic to hear how droughts are created by mismanaged land use. Let's think globally. Let's have responsible development to prevent flooding and droughts!
You will learn why trees and forests are important for weather, climate, quality of life, comfort, property values, flood control and to help endangered wildlife.
How are Eastern states of the US affected by deforestation in Western states? Learn what legislation is available to help—the proposed Drought Reduction Bill. The cost of this bill is vastly outweighed by the cost we will bear by not passing it. What can we do to make sure that the bill moves forward?
Our guest is Mark Latour, a land-use environmentalist; board member of Staten Island’s Protectors of the Pine Oak Woods; committee member of NYS Open Space Conservation Plan Committee. “My calling is writing legislation to protect endangered species and wildlife habitat.”
Join us to hear our guest, news, and environmental music by Mike Glick & Lindsey Wilson and by the Solidarity Singers. We are looking forward to taking your calls on the subject – so get up early and call in! We'd love to talk with you!
