November 15, 2016 –
Join Columbia Riverkeeper and policy expert Eric de Place of the Sightline Institute for a thought-provoking presentation to debunk myths on Northwest Innovation Works’ stunning proposal to site the world’s largest natural gas-to-methanol refinery on the Columbia.
Eric spearheads Sightline Institute’s work on energy policy. He has researched and published more than two hundred articles and reports on fossil fuel projects, and his work on fossil fuel transport is cited by regional and national news media outlets hundreds of times each year. A dynamic speaker, Eric’s hard-hitting research on fracked gas and methanol takes on the industry’s biggest talking points. You’ll walk away from Eric’s presentation with a clear picture of the gravity of this fight—and armed with facts to make a difference.
