We are still blown away by the #noLNG events in Salem last Thursday. Nearly 1,000 impacted landowners, tribal members, fishers, students, climate advocates, and more came to Salem to send Governor Kate Brown a clear message that now is the time to stop the Jordan Cove LNG export terminal and fracked gas pipeline.Thank you to everyone who showed up, made phone calls and sent text messages, talked to their neighbors, cooked meals for volunteers, and more to make this incredible day a huge success. With only a few months before the federal government can approve the use of eminent domain and tree clearing on private lands, now is a critical moment to pressure Governor Kate Brown to stand with our communities. Oregon state agencies have two critical permit decisions coming up in early 2020. Can you help build off of last week's momentum, and call Governor Brown now at (503) 378-4582 to ask her to oppose Jordan Cove LNG?read moreFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 25, 2019 Salem, OR - This week, Oregon Governor Kate Brown sent a strong letter to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) urging them to withdraw a proposal to dramatically alter the state’s role in implementing the Clean Water Act. The Governor wrote, “Oregon has many serious concerns with the revisions proposed by EPA... We have no doubt that, if adopted, the revisions will fail to meet EPA's stated objectives. The revisions will destabilize a relatively well-functioning component of our nation's water quality program that protects public health and the environment. They will have the effect of extending the length of time required to permit complex projects. They will lead to a significant increase in the proportion of proposed projects that are denied certification. And, they will harm both public health and our environment.” In response to the Governor’s statement, groups from across Oregon issued statements of support for Oregon’s effort in protecting the state’s authority to review the potential pollution impacts of projects such as the Pacific Connector Pipeline.read more
