The Jordan Cove LNG (liquefied natural gas) Terminal and Pacific Connector Pipeline project calls for a more than 200-mile-long pipeline that would transport fracked gas to an export terminal on the Oregon Coast. The proposed project would become the largest emitter of greenhouse gases in Oregon and would devastate public natural resources. The project involves clear-cutting a corridor 50 feet wide across rivers, through national forests, and across private property. The project would harm riparian reserves, old-growth forests, and cross the Pacific Crest Trail. It will also intensify pressure to drill for natural gas in the Intermountain West.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has opened up a public comment period. Until July 10, 2017, you have the opportunity to influence FERC by sharing your concerns with elected officials. Help us stop this blatant exploitation of natural resources by signing below and sharing this petition!
Secretary Bose, please uphold the 2016 decision to reject the Jordan Cove LNG Terminal and Pacific Connector Pipeline project that will further exploit our natural heritage, our communities, and our climate.
