Fossil fuel companies are attempting to turn the Northwest into a thoroughfare for fracked gas exports. A key part of their strategy is to site the world's largest methanol refinery and export terminal on the Columbia River in Southwest Washington. This refinery would consume more gas than any sector of Washington’s economy, requiring gas pipeline expansions through King County, and opening the floodgates for fracked gas usage and exports in our state.
Join us for an informational forum with Sightline Institute's Eric de Place about this proposal and find out how to keep fracked gas out of Washington! Dr. Margaret Kitchell will also speak about the health consequences of fracked gas and methanol.
