Port of Seattle Commissioner Fred Felleman shares his five year vision for a zero-carbon, clean future.
“I envision the Salish Sea being restored to an ecological oasis — from eelgrass to Orcas. However, five years is not very long for nature to reveal signs of recovery. But in just five years, a Chinook salmon can migrate thousands of miles at sea before returning to its natal stream to spawn. The journey is fraught with environmental challenges, including impacts to their home streams by poor land management, dam operations, and ocean acidification caused by climate change. We must commit to addressing these challenges because the next generation of Chinook, endangered Orcas, and our future depend on it.”
