Sound the General Alarm: Latest ice loss data

If you have kids or grand kids -- indeed, basically, if you give a damn about anyone but yourself -- this should terrify you and galvanize you into demanding a serious response to the impending climate chaos on the same scale as the threat, which makes all others seem trivial.

"Let's live on the planet as if we intend to stay."
> Doubling time for ice loss rate on the order of 3-5 years?! No wonder I recently heard of a climate change expert saying his biggest worry was not methane burps, but gulf stream conveyor belt slowdown/stoppage.

Paul Evans for House District 20

Of the few competitive races for Oregon State House, this one takes the cake for showing what a terribly screwed up election system we have, where gerrymandering can make the lightest lightweight of the favored party a real threat to beat a far more accomplished and far worthier candidate.

 If, like me, you live in one of the many districts in Oregon that are completely uncompetitive thanks to the nature of single member districts and gerrymandering, please support Paul Evans for House District 20.  

Paul faces an uphill battle registration-wise, but he is such a superior candidate that this is a very winnable race. Except for the partisan label, his opponent wouldn't even be able to credibly run against Paul on accomplishments; but, as it is, she has a built-in base that threatens to allow her to win this seat that is an open seat for the first time in a long time.

Even though this is not my district, I gave big (as micro donors go) to help elect Paul Evans, and I hope you will too.
All Oregon will all be better off for it.


Paul Evans for House District 20

Dear John --

With your help, we've been able to overcome many challenges; however, the closer we get to Election Day, the more hurdles we face. The race for our district is one of the most competitive races in Oregon this year. We need your help, now more than ever. There's a lot at stake this election, John - can I count on you to chip in $10?

All my best,

Paul Evans


On Saturday we had over 35 individuals, including Representative Rob Nosse from Portland, join us for door-knocking in Salem. In total, we were able to knock on over 700 doors - wow! Help us continue building momentum for this grassroots movement by signing up to volunteer!

In addition, Stand for Children, the National Association of Social Workers, and the End Violence Against Women PAC have recently chosen to endorse my campaign and join 25 others who have done the same!

I also completed the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge! You can watch the video here!
