350PDX NW Fossil Fuel Resistance

Help Stop New Carty Gas Power Plants!

Portland General Electric is proposing to build two new huge natural gas power plants at the Carty Generating Station to power the City of Portland!

On the heels of Portland saying no to new fossil fuel infrastructure in city limits, now we’re saying no to new fossil fuel infrastructure built to power the Portland Metro Area.

In order to have a livable planet, we need a fossil freeze and an immediate transition to a renewable energy & conservation based grid. New fossil fuel plants means climate chaos.

New gas power plants will lock us into fossil fuel power and its greenhouse gas pollution for decades to come, displacing the transition to renewable energy.

LUBA Challenge to Fossil Fuel Terminal Ban

The Fossil Fuel Industry is challenging the fossil fuel terminal zoning amendments passed by City Council last fall.

The Western States Petroleum Association, the Portland Business Alliance, and the Columbia Pacific Building Trades Council are appealing the Bulk Fossil Fuel Terminal zoning code amendments the Portland City Council adopted on December 14th to the Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals (LUBA).

350PDX is proud to officially support the efforts of the City of Portland and our allies at Columbia Riverkeeper, Portland Audubon, Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility and Center for Sustainable Economy in opposing the industry challenge to the fossil fuel terminal ban.

Read more about how we’re fighting the appeal on our blog, and more about the appeals process here.

State Republican Lawmakers are trying to stop local fossil fuel infrastructure bans!

Republican State Representative Buntz filed a bill called for the next OR Leg Session that “Preempts city, county or other local government from enacting charter provision, ordinance, resolution or other provision regulating expansion of infrastructure for primary purpose of transporting or storing fossil fuels.”

The bill gives power solely to the state legislature to regulate expansion of fossil fuel infrastructure. This is a direct response to Portland’s work banning new fossil fuel infrastructure. If passed, this bill would supersede Portland’s ban.
