Bridge to Disaster: Resisting Fracked Gas in the PNW

February 23, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

- free

The battle against fossil fuel infrastructure in the Pacific Northwest rages on! In the face of last year’s historic Clean Electricity and Coal Transition Act, which mandates the closing of all in-state coal plants by 2020, Portland General Electric (PGE) is rolling out a plan to keep the PNW locked into fossil fuel power for the next 30+ years. Ignoring vast potentials for renewable energy, PGE is instead proposing to build two new gas-fired power plants as we phase out coal-generated power. If built, the Carty-Boardman generation station would be Oregon’s new largest source of climate pollution. We want Oregon to be powered by clean, renewable energy, NOT dirty fossil fuels.

The fossil fuel industry wants to argue that fracked gas is a bridge fuel to an imagined clean energy future, but we know that it’s only a bridge to further climate devastation. A number of groups are joining forces to demand that PGE replace coal power with 100% renewable energy.

Join the Climate Action Coalition, 350PDX, the Sierra Club, Portland Rising Tide, Greenpeace and Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility in building a popular campaign to resist the fossil fuel industry and to build a climate justice future.

RSVP Online.
