Fight Climate Change on the Salish Sea - Local Campaign Launch
Over a dozen new or expanded oil, coal or LNG facilities have been proposed or approved on the shores of the Salish Sea. If all the proposals in the region were approved, the Pacific Northwest would become one of the largest fossil fuel exporters in the world. Whether Kinder Morgan’s pipeline and tanker project, coal terminals, or LNG facilities, these projects threaten our region in two ways. Directly by human health and ecosystem impacts, threats of accidents, leaks and spills, and increased shipping traffic; and indirectly through the rising tide of climate change that is already reshaping our region, with much more to come.
These proposals will continue to proliferate as long as money can be made. It’s up to us to stop this and, importantly, it can be done. Thousands are standing up to Kinder Morgan, and BC has fought off Enbridge, coal mines and LNG proposals already.
It’s up to us to stop this and, importantly, it can be done. It is time to bring in a Fossil Fuel Moratorium on the Salish Sea.
On the 14th we will provide an overview of the campaign trajectory and goals, and then split into smaller groups to discuss and strategize on such topics as local groups to partner with, tactics moving forward, who unexpected allies may be, and more.
