"Now that we stopped Jordan Cove LNG, fossil fuel corporations are trying to expand the capacity of existing fracked gas pipeline infrastructure. We can’t let them."
"TC Energy is proposing to modify the existing GTN pipeline to pump an extra 250,000 dekatherms per day of fracked gas through Oregon and Washington. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) just released the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) that recommends approving the new project, called GTN XPress."
"GTN Xpress would increase climate pollution, despite Washington’s and Oregon’s laws that require a dramatic decrease in emissions to meet climate goals. This project is extremely harmful to long-term public health due to the climate impacts of fracked gas. FERC should not approve the project."
"Can you take action by urging FERC to prioritize clean energy, not fossil fuels by signing the petition today and by joining an informational meeting next week to learn about the proposed Gas Transmission Northwest (GTN) Xpress Pipeline expansion and how you can get involved? Register here. The deadline to submit comments to FERC is August 18, 2022.
