Hi Jeanne,

Today, the Washington Department of Ecology refused to issue a key permit for the proposed Kalama methanol refinery, instead requesting more information about the project’s climate pollution. Without the Department of Ecology’s approval, the proposal for the world’s largest fracked gas-to-methanol refinery cannot proceed. Read the Department of Ecology’s request for more information.

For over five years, you have pressed Washington’s climate leaders to stand up to the fracked gas industry. In December 2018, one thousand people attended a hearing on the Kalama refinery, urging its denial. In May 2019, Governor Inslee announced his opposition to the project. And tens of thousands of us have urged the Department of Ecology to deny the refinery, which would quickly become one of Washington’s biggest carbon polluters and use more fracked gas than all other industry in the state, combined.

Thank you for helping us take a stand for clean water and a stable climate! Join us in urging the agency to ultimately reject the Kalama refinery. Call Ecology at 360-407-6969.
