ACTION NEEDED: Natural Gas Terminal Proposed (deadline Feb 16, 2015)

Do your officials know you oppose liquid natural gas being transported through Oregon?

The deadline is approaching to send a comment to Oregon’s Department of Environmental Quality!!

 Oregon LNG cannot build its destructive, polluting terminal and gas pipeline without approvals from DEQ. We need your voice in persuading DEQ to deny Oregon LNG – make that happen by submitting your comment today.

A detailed fact sheet and comment suggestions has been artfully compiled by members at Columbia Riverkeeper (find them here!). I don’t know about you, but there are so many fossil fuel terminal proposals in our area that I start to confuse them. This document helped to crystallize Oregon LNG’s proposal in my mind.

 Oregon DEQ will be accepting written comments via email and mail until Monday, February 16th at 5pm (even though it has a different date listed in the PDF). Do it now!

Thanks to 350PDX member Megan for alerting us, to Lauri Caplan for the comment period information, and to a Columbia Riverkeeper-er for the cover photo on this story; A true team effort!
