On Monday, Klamath Basin tribal leaders, Klamath Riverkeeper, and hundreds of allies gathered at the Oregon State Capitol to ask Governor Brown and state agencies to reject the proposed Pacific Connector natural gas pipeline and export facility.
The proposed pipeline would connect to an existing pipeline near Klamath Falls, OR and carry fracked gas 230 miles through private and public land to a proposed export facility in Coos Bay, OR. This would be the first fracked gas export facility on the west coast requiring a new 420 MW power plant to prepare the gas for shipment to international markets.
Although the federal government has turned down a permit application for the project, Oregon state agencies are dragging their feet having delayed a decision four times.
Our rally was a success, but Oregon’s Governor and state agencies need to hear from you! Please sign the petition asking Oregon’s Governor and state agencies to stop it?
