Stop the dangerous Jordan Cove LNG Terminal and Pacific Connector Pipeline project!
The Jordan Cove LNG (liquefied natural gas) Terminal and Pacific Connector Pipeline project calls for a more than 200-mile-long pipeline that would transport fracked gas to an export terminal on the Oregon Coast. The proposed project would become the largest emitter of greenhouse gases in Oregon and would devastate public natural resources. The project involves clear-cutting a corridor 50 feet wide across rivers, through national forests, and across private property. The project would harm riparian reserves, old-growth forests, and cross the Pacific Crest Trail. It will also intensify pressure to drill for natural gas in the Intermountain West.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has opened up a public comment period. Until July 10, 2017, you have the opportunity to influence FERC by sharing your concerns with elected officials. Help us stop this blatant exploitation of natural resources by signing below and sharing this petition!
Secretary Bose, please uphold the 2016 decision to reject the Jordan Cove LNG Terminal and Pacific Connector Pipeline project that will further exploit our natural heritage, our communities, and our climate.
Why is this important?
The Western Environmental Law Center and a coalition of conservation groups have challenged this LNG project for years, and we secured a great victory when the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) rejected the Jordan Cove-Pacific Connector project in early 2016 after it was determined that the drawbacks of the pipeline outweigh its public benefits. Now it’s back thanks to the Trump Administration’s plans to allow fossil fuels to further exploit our natural heritage, our communities, and our climate.
The Western Environmental Law Center is a nonprofit, public-interest environmental law firm. Our expert attorneys are ready to use the full power of the law to stop the dangerous and destructive Jordan Cove LNG Terminal and Pacific Connector Pipeline project. WELC will be submitting all signatures and comments below to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on July 10, 2017.
