June 29 Environmental Impact

Environmental impact statements are a tool of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1972. The law was conceived by conservative Washington State Senator Henry "Scoop" Jackson. It passed the Senate on unanimous vote, the House by 372-15 and was signed by Republican president Richard Nixon. The law has been emulated in other countries. But many of our current elected leaders have unfortunately gone astray in their environmental thinking, under the influence of pecunious and rapacious corporate interests.

Environmental Impact Statement is also Lisa Schonberg, Amy Harwood and Leif J Lee. They work to bring artists into local forests, threatened to be logged, as an inspiration for their work. They are the curators of a show opening tonight of artists who have participated. It runs for 3 weeks.

Artists include Jodie Cavalier, Jodi Darby, Lisa Schonberg, Heather Treadway, Amy Wheeler Harwood, Leif J. Lee, Alison Jane Clarys, Danielle Ross, Sidony O'neal and Gary Wiseman.
