Ashland is the perfect community for an on-line, citizen media outlet to thrive in. Unlike most cities in the U.S., the City of Ashland owns its own utilities. As home of the world-renowned Oregon Shakespeare Festival, the city attracts nearly 125,000 visitors each year. The City of Ashland, well-known for its technological prowess, has already invested in an advanced telecommunications network, offering a user-friendly Web site complete with almost every tool one would need for keeping abreast of the city’s public business. By doing so, the city is among the most “wired”in the nation. This town loves to stay abreast of local affairs and is very community-spirited. It also has the technological savvy to support such a cutting edge medium. Indeed, the city government is actively seeking such businesses. Ashland now has a grand opportunity to lay the foundations for a prosperous and secure future.

Paros – the lovely island in Greece’s Cycladic region – is famous for its blue-and-white painted architecture, captivating coasts, and turquoise seas. Soon, it will be known for its environmental standards as well. It has been selected to represent a future free of plastic pollution and waste.
The President's comments come after Thunberg hammered President Trump for leaving the Paris Climate Accord. The speech by the far-left climate activist was made at the World Economic Forum in Davos Switzerland.
There are bipartisan bills in Congress that we could pass right now to ensure the United States remains a global leader in emissions reduction, economic productivity, and clean energy production, all at once.”
That’s what Energy and Commerce Republican Leader Greg Walden (R-OR) said in September, calling on Democrats to work with Republicans on commonsense, bipartisan solutions to protect the environment and our economy.
The United States is joining the One Trillion Trees Initiative, President Donald Trump said on Jan. 21.
Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Trump said the United States is joining the initiative.
“We’re committed to conserving the majesty of God’s creation and the natural beauty of our world,” Trump said.
America “will continue to show strong leadership in restoring, growing, and better managing our trees and our forests,” he added, drawing applause.
The One Trillion Trees Initiative was announced during the forum. It encourages countries to plant trees as part of the effort to combat climate change. The goal is to plant 1 trillion trees by 2050.
Ecologist Dr. Thomas Crowther told the forum last year that humans should plant 1.2 trillion trees to cancel out the past decade of CO2 emissions.
Human activities are behind the extinction crisis. Commercial agriculture, timber extraction, and infrastructure development are causing habitat loss and our reliance on fossil fuels is a major contributor to climate change.
Public corporations are responding to consumer demand and pressure from Wall Street. Professors Christopher Wright and Daniel Nyberg published Climate Change, Capitalism and Corporations last fall, arguing that businesses are locked in a cycle of exploiting the world's resources in ever more creative ways.
