    With the massive money coming our way we can dream big! There is an exhibit of Artworks depicting a Green Park-Roofed Columbia River Crossing Bridge
    at the NW Lucky Lab Brewpub on NW Quimby St.
    [activity room]. The Park Roof absorbs the rain-driven pollution runoff [eliminating expensive water treatment and saving salmon.] The Park Plantlife will absorb CO2 – 24 / 7 / 365. The one-of-a-kind park high above the Mighty Columbia will draw visitors from around the world to see our GREEN GATEWAY TO THE NW .

    The Park Plantlife will absorb CO2 – 24 / 7 / 365.

    Most plants, (there are some exceptions for things like pineapples, which aren’t likely to be grown on this thing, especially if it is treating pollution runoff,) only absorb CO2 during the day. They actually release a little bit of CO2 at night.

    It’s great they hold so many of these meetings when those who use the bridge to get to 9-5 jobs can’t make it.
