Wildfire and LNG Pipelines

This has already been sent to the Mail Tribune and the Daily Tidings.  Feel free to rewrite it and use it to send to anyone and everyone that might be influenced to oppose the pipeline.

The wildfires in our area have been very destructive and disruptive for all of us.  Lives have been lost.  Homes, businesses, infrastructure and forests have been lost or damaged.  Some people may never recover their former lives.  Forests will take decades to come back as they were.  The fires are still burning and we are faced with the Canadian Corporation that wants to put a natural gas pipeline through Southern Oregon. This is a 36 inch high-pressure pipeline filled with invisible and odorless deadly gas.  After breathing smoke all summer and watching endless destruction on television every single day, how can anyone with a lucid mind think this pipeline is a safe and plausible idea?

Here is another thought starter.

Unanswered questions---sample letter---For the newspaper, politicians etc.

Today a problem area of my mind is the proposed LNG pipeline.  I try to imagine what Southern Oregon will be like if the pipeline is really built.  I really don’t like that image.  A large area of Southern Oregon would be permanently damaged forever.  What happens down the road when the natural gas is no longer profitable? What would happen if they decide to sell the pipeline? What would it be like if they decided to run another parallel pipeline along the same easement?  What would happen if they decided to convert it to crude oil.  We need to ask a lot more questions and demand some truthful and realistic answers. Maybe, just maybe we could all work together to get those answers.

Rogue Climate LNG Repost

Members of the Rogue Climate Action Team show off their art forthe upcomming rally.
Come Help Us
Over the past three months, tens of thousands of people have submitted comments to the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) demanding our agency denies permits for the Jordan Cove LNG export terminal and Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline. This is a record breaking number of comments EVER submitted to DEQ!
This Thursday at the Medford DEQ office, impacted landowners, tribal members, youth, anglers, rafters, business owners, health professionals, local elected officials, and allies from across the region are gathering for a rally to ask DEQ to protect our home by denying the Clean Water Act permit Jordan Cove needs to move their project forward. Can we count on you to be there on Thursday? 
WHEN: Thursday, August 16, 11:00 am-12:00 pm
WHERE: Medford DEQ office (221 Stewart Ave)
The rally includes energizing speeches, chants, beautiful art, and a celebration of the tens of thousands of comments submitted to DEQ. 
Smoke or clear skies, we’ll be there and we hope you’ll join us too. See you on Thursday!
Allie and the “No Pipeline Team”
P.S. Don’t forget to submit your comments before the August 20 deadline online here!
