This one from Jess Wallach:
Zombies and fossil fuel infrastructure don’t mix.

But the Jordan Cove LNG proposal – twice defeated by Northwest communities – has reared its ugly, fracked gas head again. If built, this zombie project would be the first LNG export terminal on the West Coast, exporting nearly 7.8 million tons of liquified natural gas (LNG) per year and driving gas expansion across our region.

Oregonians have been building the resistance to this project for over 10 years, and now is a critical moment for all of us in the Thin Green Line to stand firm. Can you submit a comment opposing the Jordan Cove LNG terminal and Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline?

Here’s what you need to know:

  • This project includes a new 229-mile pipeline across private and public land, creating a 100-foot wide clearcut through southwest Oregon’s forests and farms to transport fracked gas from Canada and the U.S. Rockies.
  • This project would pollute nearly 500 waterways, threaten wildlife habitats, impact hundreds of landowners and raise energy prices for local communities.
  • Indigenous communities along the pipeline route have strongly opposed the pipeline project. The pipeline would disturb sacred sites, burial grounds, and cultural resources, and it could harm critical runs of salmon and steelhead.
  • The lifecycle carbon emissions of this project would be 36.8 million metric tons per year – equivalent to putting 7.9 million cars on the road.
  • Over 16,000 people are in the ‘blast radius’ of this highly explosive facility – which is sited in a tsunami and earthquake hazard zone.

Less than six months after Jordan Cove LNG permits were denied for the second time, a Trump administration official declared “the first thing we’re going to do is we’re going to permit an LNG export facility in the Northwest”. We say, not on our watch.

Fight zombies – submit your comment opposing the Jordan Cove LNG proposal.

In solidarity,
