LNG Pipeline

Th current political climate gives the opportunity for the pipeline proposal to once again appear in our watershed.  The Rogue Riverkeeper staff is yet again leading the charge to stop it.  Here is their message.

Under the Obama administration, the federal government denied permits for the Jordan Cove/Pacific Connector liquefied natural gas (LNG) project, effectively shutting down the project for the third time. Now we will need the support of Senator Merkley and Senator Wyden to help ensure that that the project does not go through. Colorado legislators are pushing for this project’s revival as well as the Trump administration, that's why now it's more important than ever that our legislators hear our voice, stand for their constituents, and against the Trump energy agenda, which includes Jordan Cove. Ron Wyden has already spoken out against DAPL and Keystone XL but not Jordan Cove-- making this a critical issue to address.

This Thursday, February 23rd, we will rally together outside Senator Wyden’s town hall in Ashland to urge him to stand up for the climate, Oregon and Northern California by publicly opposing the project. We will be gathering to greet the Senator at 9:00 am on Thursday on the corner of Siskiyou Bvld. and S. Mountain Ave (near Ashland High School). Wear red and bring your best NoLNG signs!

We will be handing out talking points covering Senator Wyden’s stance on the Pipeline, what questions to ask, and other actions we want him to take to protect our climate.

WHAT: Rally against LNG - Wyden Town Hall
WHEN: 9:00 am Thursday the 23rd
WHERE: Ashland High School on the corner of Siskiyou Blvd. and S. Mountain Ave.

See you there!
