Act for Energy Independence: Defend Oregon from LNG

This proposed pipeline is much bigger than the incredibly destructive localized impacts: it is at the heart of our national energy policy, threatening to make natural gas the new oil.

Take a moment this 4th of July to envision an energy independent America.

“Fracking” for natural gas across the United States has blown up over the last few years, stirring a wave of controversy, corruption, and questions about our domestic national energy policy.

Now, energy companies have targeted southern Oregon with a proposal to build a 235-mile natural gas pipeline and coastal terminal to EXPORT domestic natural gas to Asian markets.

  • Exporting domestic natural gas would drive up the cost of natural gas for all natural gas ratepayers, including families, small businesses, and a diversity of industries and the consumers that buy their products.  
  • Exporting domestic natural gas would also increase the demand for dangerous methods of natural gas extraction.
  • If the proposed Pacific Connector pipeline and Jordan Cove LNG (liquefied natural gas) terminal were built, exporting domestic natural gas would threaten salmon, water quality, private landowners and public land in southwest Oregon.

This project is much bigger than the incredibly destructive localized impacts: it is at the heart of our national energy policy, threatening to make natural gas the new oil.
