Say No to LNG Exports
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.
If the proposed Pacific Connector pipeline and Jordan Cove LNG (liquefied natural gas) terminal were built, exporting domestic natural gas would:
1) Threaten salmon, water quality, private landowners and public land in southwest Oregon. The pipeline would create a 235-mile long clearcut, dig ditches or drill through nearly 400 streams and rivers, and seize private property for corporate profit;
2) Increase the demand for dangerous methods of natural gas extraction, leading to increased fracking in the Rockies and other areas of the nation;
3) Drive up the cost of natural gas for all U.S. ratepayers, including families, small businesses, and a diversity of industries and the consumers that buy their products.
Join the movement for energy independence and help protect southern Oregon by signing this petition and sharing it with your friends.
I’m opposed to LNG exports and I’m opposed to the proposed Jordan Cove LNG terminal and Pacific Connector pipeline in southern Oregon. This project threatens to harm salmon, private and public lands, and natural gas ratepayers. Please work toward U.S. energy independence and stop natural gas export proposals!
