According to findings from the Oil Change International report, the LNG project would make it incredibly challenging, if not impossible for the state to meet climate action goals established by Gov. Brown and by the legislature, while providing no energy supply for the state. Gov. Brown has consistently called for strong climate action and even attended the Paris Climate talks in Bonn, Germany in November 2017. “Future generations will judge us not on the fact of global climate change, but on what we do to tackle it,” Brown told the City Club of Portland on June 2.
“We need Governor Brown to stand up for property rights, tribal rights, the environment, and the climate over corporate special interests,” said Hannah Sohl, Director of Rogue Climate. “There is no way to be a climate leader and stay neutral on the Jordan Cove project.”
“The State of Oregon, with Governor Brown as its most powerful officer, has the authority to deny permits, easements, and permissions for the Jordan Cove Project,” said Nicholas Caleb, Staff Attorney at the Center for Sustainable Economy. “This project would harm Oregon’s waters, lands, tidelands, and air in ways inconsistent with state law. It would also add enormous and unnecessary risks to a region already suffering from terrible wildfires and preparing for an enormous earthquake and tsunami.”
NOW is the time for all Oregonians to let Governor Brown these projects would be a disaster for our state.
Call Gov. Brown at 503.378.4582 Leave her a message to let her know that we need her to stand up to the proposed Jordan Cove export liquid natural gas (LNG) terminal and protect our climate by challenging what is likely to be an inadequate federal review and rubber-stamp from FERC.
