Act now! Comment period is open
The world’s largest fracked gas-to-methanol refinery threatens the Columbia River and the community of Kalama, Washington. The facility would lock the Pacific Northwest into decades of using dirty fracked gas at a time when we need to transition to clean energy. The good news: you can protect our climate and the Columbia.

Methanol = fracked gas
Natural gas, the ingredient used to make methanol, is a clever name for methane, a potent greenhouse gas that is extracted using hydraulic fracturing (fracking), a process famous for polluting water and air. Read about “natural” gas impacts here.
