Public Hearing: Say “No” to Fracked Gas in Kalama @ Longview, WA - Cowlitz County Events Center
Dec 13 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Northwest Innovation Works, a fossil fuel company, seeks to build the largest fracked-gas to methanol refinery in Kalama, Washington. This facility would be the largest emitter of greenhouse gases in Washington, threaten air and water quality, and pollute to the equivalent of 1.2 million cars.

A new Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) on the project misses many likely impacts and the true costs of this project. While the company argues that this facility would be a net-benefit for the climate, independent researchers find that it could be the largest source of carbon pollution in Washington by 2025.

Join Washington PSR at this public hearing to testify in opposition to polluting fracked gas infrastructure in Washington!
