Join Oregon PSR and partner groups for a beach party to take action to protect the Southern Oregon coast from the Jordan Cove LNG export terminal!

A huge fracked gas liquefaction and shipping terminal threatens to dramatically alter and permanently harm people and wildlife throughout the Coos Bay area. Thankfully, Oregon has a state agency that can stop this project through the Coastal Zone Management Program, which requires Jordan Cove LNG to prove that its project is aligned with local and state laws meant to protect Oregon’s Coastal Zone.

We will give you more information about the Coastal Zone Management Act review of Jordan Cove LNG and help you write comments to the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development asking them to deny Jordan Cove LNG.

If you can’t make it, please submit a comment online.

We have less than 12 years to meaningfully reduce the world’s human-made greenhouse gas emissions in order to avert the most catastrophic climate change scenarios. Jordan Cove LNG would become Oregon’s biggest single source of greenhouse gas emissions and emit more than 15 times the carbon dioxide equivalent of our state’s shuttering coal power plant. The export terminal proposed for Coos Bay under the Jordan Cove project would also require extensive dredging of the bay, which would irreparably harm crab, fish, and all those who depend on those resources for their way of life.

Join us for this fun, lighthearted action meet-up to protect Oregon’s coast from Jordan Cove LNG. We look forward to seeing you there!
