Question: I’m really worried about climate change, but what can I do?
Answer: Go to powerpastfrackedgas.org/kalama and scroll down to How You Can Weigh In.
You will find the tools to prevent Northwest Innovation Works, a Chinese entity, from getting a shoreline permit to construct a methane-to-methanol facility in Kalama.
This facility would consume more fracked gas than any other sector of Washington’s economy, likely necessitating a second fracked gas pipeline paralleling I-5 from British Columbia to Vancouver. Pipelines, even underground, leak invisible greenhouse gases into the air, further warming the planet. By 2025 the proposed refinery could easily become the single largest polluter of greenhouse gases in the state.
Virtual hearings begin Thursday. Be heard.
