7:00 pm: PDX info meeting: Kalama methanol refinery comment period
February 13, 2018 –
1821 Ankeny St
Attend an informational meeting on Tuesday, February 13th at 7 pm at the Sierra Club to learn more about the critical public comment period we’re in right now on the Kalama methanol refinery!
This comment period is a key opportunity to convince decision-makers to stop the Kalama methanol refinery and the Kalama Lateral pipeline. A state hearings board ordered a new Environmental Impact Statement that fully discloses the refinery’s climate impacts—but without your voice, government officials will try to downplay the project’s emissions.
You stood up to dirty coal and dangerous oil-by-rail with phenomenal success. But the fossil fuel industry aims to derail your cleaner, safer energy future with new proposals for massive natural gas infrastructure—like the Kalama methanol refinery. Natural gas for the Kalama gas-to-methanol refinery would come from fracking, with side effects including contaminated groundwater and severe methane leaks that add to the project’s climate footprint.
If Governor Inslee intends to protect landowners from eminent domain and new gas pipelines, reduce air pollution, and ensure that Washington helps stop climate change, he must oppose the Kalama methanol refinery. Cowlitz County, the Port of Kalama, and the Washington Department of Ecology should also deny the proposal under the authority of the State Environmental Policy Act.
