Environmentalism that supports a flourishing economy.

Banner-Environment

Cascade is the leading voice for free-market environmentalism in Oregon. It might sound like a contradiction, but it actually makes sense. Improved environmental quality goes hand-in-hand with economic prosperity, and both flourish when property rights are respected.

Cascade analyzes any potential regulations, such as the Governor’s recent intention to pass legislation for a limit on carbon dioxide emissions, with the intent to report on whether it clearly benefits both the environment and economic opportunity.

We are also concerned about the management of BLM lands in Oregon, including forest thinning and increased timber harvesting. Active management affects all public lands—including parks, wilderness areas and national monuments— and could impact whether we are threatened further by catastrophic wildfires, Oregon’s biggest environmental risk.
