Television ads attacking Gov. Jerry Brown, state lawmakers and special interests for not doing enough to stop the clear-cutting of California forests are airing in the North Bay.
They’re airing on CNN, MSNBC, Headline News and various environmental networks, including National Geographic Channel and Discovery Channel, throughout July in the Marin County cities of Fairfax, San Rafael, Mill Valley, Novato, San Anselmo, Belvedere, Lagunitas, San Geronimo, Corte Madera, Larkspur, San Quentin, Forest Knolls, Sausalito, Greenbrae, Ross, Tiburon, Kentfield and Woodacre, according to a release from the Battle Creek Alliance.
The 30-second commercials charge that more than 350,000 acres of California’s forests have been clear-cut in the last decade or so by just one company, and blame Brown, the Legislature, corporations and public agencies.
I dig Jerry’s shades.
Battle Creek Alliance is a small Northern California nonprofit environmental group that previously ran the spots ran in the Sacramento area.
