Rally to tell Governor Brown:
The Time is NOW to Stop Jordan Cove LNG & Pipeline
November 21, 2019 at 11 am
Capitol Steps 900 Court St. NE Salem, OR

Communities across the Pacific Northwest are calling on Governor Brown to join them by stopping the Jordan Cove LNG export terminal and fracked gas pipeline. For over a decade, this project has threatened private and public lands, tribal sites and cultural resources, public safety, and existing jobs in fishing, tourism, and more. Governor Brown cannot claim to be a climate champion while remaining silent on a proposed fracked gas export project that would become Oregon’s single largest climate polluter.
Our  communities will join together at a rally at the state capitol to tell Kate Brown that the time is now: deny all state permits, challenge the Federal Government’s power grabs, and join us in protecting health, safety, and our climate from Jordan Cove LNG.   Wear Red

NO LNG * NO PIPELINE * NO FRACKED GAS IN OREGON

Submit Comments to DEQ for
Covanta/Marion Incinerator Air Quality Permit

The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is taking comments on a new Air Quality Permit for the Covanta/Marion incinerator until 5:00 pm November 18.

Instructions and suggestions for submitting comments are here: https://350salemor.org/covanta-marion-incinerator/

The incinerator is the biggest point source of greenhouse gas emissions in Marion County and also a source of many toxic emissions. Yet the new permit would maintain and in some cases increase allowable emissions limits. DEQ needs to hear that this is not acceptable.
