Behind the Emerald Curtain

Synopsis

Oregon is perceived as a green progressive state but the logging laws lag far behind other states and fail too protect public health and the commons. From toxic herbicides being sprayed on communities and watersheds to iconic rivers being logged off in the past 10 years. Communities and ecosystems are suffering and paying the price as multi-national corporate logging companies make record profits.
