In order to stop the climate crisis from getting worse, we have to keep the remaining fossil fuel reserves in the ground. The Pacific Northwest is currently facing many active proposals for new fossil fuel infrastructure that if built would lock us into the fossil fuel economy and its carbon pollution for decades to come. The Fossil Fuel Resistance team seeks to stop new fossil fuel projects from being built in Portland or to service the Portland metro area, and to engage in regional fights to stop all new fossil fuel infrastructure in the PNW and beyond!
We hope you can join us at our next meeting!
Our current campaign: This past September, 350PDX and partners learned that Portland General Electric has plans to build two new LARGE natural gas plants to service the Portland metro area, locking us into burning natural gas for decades to come. We’re organizing to stop these fossil fuel power plants to protect a livable future!
What does the Fossil Fuels Resistance Team work on?
- Stopping Fossil Fuel Infrastructure in Portland
- Stopping Fossil Fuel Infrastructure built to service the Portland Metro Area
- Regional fights opposing fossil fuel exports and new major pipelines, power plants and refineries.
- Rapid response campaigns, like ShellNo.
