About the film
Renowned photographer James Balog (Chasing Ice) uses his camera to reveal how environmental change is affecting the lives of everyday Americans. Following the four classical elements – air, earth, fire and water – to frame his journey, Balog explores wildfires, hurricanes, sea level rise, coal mining, and the changes in the air we breathe. With compassion and heart THE HUMAN ELEMENT tells an urgent story while giving inspiration for a more balanced relationship between humanity and nature.

Fracked gas is threatening our climate, our land, and our water! Act now to protect Washington from this dirty fossil fuel!

Take Action!
Dear Jeanne,

We’ve beat back big coal and big oil time and again. Now, we’re up against fracked gas!

Fossil fuel companies are racing to build the world’s largest fracked gas-to-methanol refinery in Southwest Washington. It would pollute as much as 1.2 million cars, require massive fracked gas pipeline expansions, and threaten our salmon and orca with deadly spills. Help us stop this project today!

Protect Washington From Fracked Gas!

We have stopped projects like this before, by showing up to public hearings, speaking out, and submitting public comments!

A critical public comment period is open now on the fracked gas-to-methanol refinery. Tell permitting agencies to protect our safety, our climate and our health by stopping this project!

 Submit your comment today!

With love and solidarity,

Cecile Gernez

     Draft Supplemental EIS for Proposed Kalama Methanol Plant Released
Public hearing on December 13, 2018

The Port of Kalama and Cowlitz County have released the draft supplemental environmental impact statement (DSEIS) for Northwest Innovation Works, LLC’s proposed natural gas to methanol production plant and storage facility.
The DSEIS includes a quantitative analysis of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions attributable to the proposed project on a life-cycle basis.
The DSEIS is available for viewing and downloading at: https://kalamamfgfacilitysepa.com/.

Copies of the document are also available for review at the Port of Kalama, Cowlitz County Department of Building & Planning, and local libraries.
Public comments on the DSEIS will be accepted for 45 days beginning November 13, 2018 and continuing to 5 p.m. on December 28, 2018. Methods for commenting are provided in the DSEIS document.

The battle is on – again!


Independent, Third-Party Analysis Finds:
Kalama Methanol Plant Results in
Net Reduction in Global GHG Emissions.
NWIW also commits to offset 100% of the plant’s associated GHG emissions within Washington, including those beyond direct operations.
Today an independent, third-party report was released by the Port of Kalama and Cowlitz County. The report provides a comprehensive assessment of net greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with methanol production at Northwest Innovation Works’ proposed Kalama Facility. The two major findings of that report are the following:
The Kalama Methanol Plant Results in Dramatic Net Reductions in Global GHG Emissions.
Building the Kalama methanol plant will result in a dramatic net reduction in global GHG emissions — the equivalent of taking 2.2 million cars off the road.
NWIW has committed to mitigate 100% of the plant’s associated GHG emissions within Washington, including those beyond direct operations.
The pledge is unprecedented. It represents a removal of up to 970,000 metric tonnes of GHG emissions annually. The cumulative mitigation NWIW will achieve is roughly equivalent to the amount of carbon stored by 2,742,000 Douglas fir trees over their first 100 years of life.
Creating Jobs. Investing in Community. Confronting Climate Change.
What’s Next?
The Port of Kalama and Cowlitz County announced today the beginning of a 45 day window for public comment of the SEIS report.

FAX THEM ! The Harper-appointed National Energy Board is reviewing the Trans Mountain expansion again.

The Harper-appointed National Energy Board is reviewing the Trans Mountain expansion again.

Why? Because a federal court found their previous review was so flawed, the Trudeau government couldn’t lawfully rely on it for the project’s approval.

Well, now Trudeau has asked this industry-captured regulator for another rushed approval. Submit your comment to the NEB’s oil tanker review.

The archaic NEB won’t accept comments by e-mail — but you can submit yours by fax.

I don’t know about you, Kevin, but I’d never used a fax machine before. Maybe you haven’t in a while. Most people don’t have one at home anymore.

Fear not! You can send a comment by fax on our website with just a couple of clicks. Just head on over to NoTankers.ca. We’ll fax it to the NEB for you and cc your MP too.

Don’t want hundreds more oil tankers a year putting B.C.’s coast, economy and resident orca whales at risk? Get your opposition on the record.

The deadline for public comment is November 20. Fax yours today.

For the coast,


P.S. If you feel like this NEB review is rigged, you’re not alone. For one thing, the regulator decided to exclude climate change from their assessment. For another, the Prime Minister keeps repeating his intention to build this pipeline and tanker expansion with our tax dollars! Still, you can bet pro-pipeline politicians will be looking at this review as a barometer for public opposition. Submit your comment about Trudeau’s oil tanker expansion plan and we’ll cc your MP.
