Our communities just submitted a record-breaking number of comments to Oregon DEQ and the Army Corps of Engineers asking them to deny clean water permits for Jordan Cove LNG.
We submitted over 42,000 comments!
This is double the comments that Oregon DEQ has ever received for a project like this. Together, we sent a strong message to Governor Brown, Oregon DEQ and the Army Corps of Engineers that we won’t put at risk our rivers, drinking water, communities, or local economies for the profit of a private corporation.
Thank you for showing up, submitting comments, and raising your voice. Over the past three months, our coalition of youth, impacted landowners, tribal governments, small businesses, health professionals, environmental and climate advocates, and more took action by:
- Rallying with 200 people at the Oregon DEQ office to deliver thousands of comments to agency staff in person. Check out the Mail Tribune article, coverage on NPR, and some great pictures.
- Holding 27 comment writing workshops across the region at tribal offices, schools, faith centers, libraries, public parks, and people’s homes.
- Submitting technical comments, coordinated by Rogue Riverkeeper, that 49 organizations signed on to support.
This isn’t over yet. After DEQ reviews all of these comments, they will hold public hearings that we will all need to show up for.
Coordinating this campaign takes a major commitment of resources and staff. Will you support Rogue Climate’s on-the-ground work to build the movement to stop this pipeline and transition to clean energy by becoming a monthly donor today?
Again, a big thanks to you and all of our partners for coming together to raise our voices.
The Rogue Climate Team
