The dangers of Puget Sound Energy’s Tacoma Liquefied Natural Gas facility extend beyond the climate crisis — it directly threatens the health of Tacoma residents and all communities along the fracked gas pathway from British Columbia down through the Salish Sea. We also experience harm across Washington state from PSE’s questionable business practices — violations of Indigenous sovereignty, destruction of habitat, meddling in local elections, advertising campaigns targeting children, and slowing local efforts to transition to renewables.
Next week we have two impactful events that illuminate PSE’s bad gas problem.
Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility, Power Past Fracked Gas, 350 Tacoma & 350 Seattle invite you to come listen, learn, and get involved as our four expert panelists share their unique perspectives and explore the threats to our health and wellbeing posed by this facility — and present ways you can help.This teach-in will include opportunities for participants to ask questions and participate in a larger discussion. We will end with a brief training on ways you can get involved now, and easy next steps to join the resistance against toxic fracked gas in the ancestral tideflats of the Puyallup Tribe, known today as the Port of Tacoma.
This beautiful short documentary film, Yehow, tells the story of two women coming together to fight a pipeline expansion project in South Snohomish county, uncovering major climate and environmental impacts along the way. The screening will be followed by a discussion with the filmmakers to learn more about Puget Sound Energy — the company responsible for this pipeline, as well as the Tacoma LNG gas facility.
It’s time we put the health and safety of communities above corporate profits and business as usual.
