The Pacific Northwest is facing a new wave of fossil fuel projects around fracked gas. At the same time, the West is experiencing increased oil and gas leasing and drilling for fracked gas that will negatively impact western communities.
Fracked gas pollutes air and water, putting the health of our families and the health of the places we live, work and play at risk. Children, elders, people of color and low income community members are disproportionately affected by the impacts of fracking and climate change. Every choice for fossil fuels is a choice against clean energy and healthy communities. New fracked gas infrastructure, like pipelines, export terminals, and powerplants, takes us backward.
Protect the health and safety of our communities and climate.
Stop the development of new gas infrastructure.
Equitably transition from fossil fuels to clean energy.
