Why the timber industry
ads are misleading
Yes on 64
- They imply that Measure 64 will end all logging. It will not.
- They imply that Measure 64 will ban all pesticide use. It
specifies only chemical pesticides
- They imply that chemical pesticides are the only way to fight
insect infestations. While it is the cheapest way, short-term,
it's not even the most cost-effective way, long term. And when
the cost of environmental damage is considered, the case for
chemical pesticides become even more problematic.
- They misdirect from the subjects of clearcutting and
pesticides with heart-warming family images.
