Reminder: 6:30pm Tuesday Sept 13th “The Truth about the Economics of Logging”

North Coast Communities for Watershed Protection (NCCWP), which advocates to protect our local drinking watersheds, is excited to announce an upcoming talk with economist Ernie Niemi, “The Truth about the Economics of Logging.” A Q&A will follow. This free zoom event will take place on September 13 at 6:30 p.m. PT. Here is the LINK TO REGISTER or at

For 40 years, Niemi has documented the external costs of timber production in the Pacific Northwest, with a special focus on timber workers, their families and their communities. He will speak with NCCWP about the realities of the economics of the logging industry as it currently stands, and realistic economic ways forward for our community that are not extractive and destructive. Neimi will explain why logging is no longer an economic growth factor for our communities—in fact it actually jeopardizes the real economic drivers on the coast, which are quality of life (clean air and water) and recreation in our beautiful forests, beaches and rivers. Niemi’s talk will address the need for economic considerations of climate change and the biodiversity crisis, and provide tips for speaking up about the value of our forests.

North Coast Communities for Watershed Protection (formerly Rockaway Beach Citizens for Watershed Protection) is a grassroots group working, through education and advocacy, for better protections of the water we drink, the air we breathe, and the forests that sustain us. | |
