Hi Jeanne,

It’s a big week in your fight against fracked gas and the Kalama methanol refinery.

Columbia Riverkeeper and allies filed a federal lawsuit because the Trump administration’s agencies violated the Clean Water Act, the Endangered Species Act, and the National Environmental Policy Act when reviewing NWIW’s impacts on the Columbia River and the climate. Riverkeeper’s attorneys, and our outside counsel at Earthjustice, plan to hold the Trump administration accountable and protect the Columbia from fracked gas development. If successful, the lawsuit would deny federal permits and subsidies to the Kalama methanol refinery.

But wait, there’s more! In response to the Washington Department of Ecology’s recent request for more information, NWIW merely repeated its claim that exporting massive amounts of fossil fuel will somehow prevent global warming. We know better—now it’s time for Washington to deny the proposal for good.

Thanks to your support, we are working toward a cleaner Columbia and a healthier climate!

P.S. While we’re working on Kalama, we’re also standing in solidarity with our allies who are fighting the Jordan Cove LNG project and Pacific Connector Pipeline in Southern Oregon. Like Kalama methanol, this fracked gas monster urgently deserves denial from state leaders and agencies. Join us at 11AM at the Oregon Capitol in Salem on November 21 to urge Governor Brown and Oregon leaders to stand up to Jordan Cove.
