We are calling upon Governor Brown to oppose the proposed fracked gas pipelines and liquefied natural gas export terminals in Warrenton and Coos Bay.
The science is clear: to keep global warming below catastrophic levels, burning of fossil fuels must be stopped as soon as possible. These proposed pipelines and terminals will exacerbate the climate crisis by supporting the burning of fossil fuels for decades.
Please sign this petition and get involved. Your action is needed!
Edit: Petition is no longer taking signatures. They are being handed in to the Mayor and City Council.
Mayor Hales and Portland City Council — stand with the people of the Pacific Northwest, Senator Merkley and the Seattle City Council by publicly opposing Shell’s plans to drill for oil in the arctic Chukchi Sea.
The MSV Fennica–an icebreaker ship on charter to Shell–sustained damage on its voyage north and is scheduled for repairs at Vigor Industrial Shipyard in North Portland. The ship is a critical component of Shell’s plans and its presence here is a reminder of Portland’s role in the fossil fuel economy.
Arctic drilling puts vulnerable ecosystems at risk and will exacerbate climate change. When it’s clear that most reserves of oil, coal and gas need to stay in the ground, only unbridled corporate greed could pursue the insanity of drilling for more oil in such a remote, dangerous and vulnerable area. At a time when we urgently need to transition to renewable energy, our future depends on everyone–including our elected officials–speaking out.
