May 31, 2018 Postcards Against Jordan Cove LNG & Pipeline Ike Box 299 Cottage St. NE Salem
Come anytime between 3:30 pm & 6:30 pm
Portland Business Alliance and Oregon Business & Industry came out in support of the Jordan Cove Liquefied Natural Gas Terminal and Pacific Connector Pipeline (JC LNG) and sent letters of support to FERC (Federal Energy Regulatory Commission). Read the letters PBA and OBI sent to FERC, (Federal Energy Regulatory Commission) and some articles, at this link: https://goo.gl/eEUBaz
The 230 mile pipeline, from near Klamath Falls to Coos Bay, will carry natural gas, mostly produced by fracking. It will cross more than 400 rivers, streams and wetlands including the Klamath and Rogue Rivers as well as traditional tribal land and burial grounds, many farms, ranches, public and private forests and conservation lands. It will require a permanent 100 foot wide clear cut for access and maitenance. At Coos Bay an energy-intensive cooling plant will convert the gas to liquid to be shipped to Asia. This is a bad deal for Oregon and a bad deal for our climate.
Portland Business Alliance and Oregon Business & Industry members include countless organizations and educational institutions from across Oregon with whom many of us do business on a daily basis.
Do these businesses know what their associations signed them up for? Regardless, it’s time for us, their customers, to let them know our thoughts about the JC LNG!
Drop by the IKE Box Cafe’ on 5/31 any time between 3:30-6:30 pm; write and sign as many postcards as you have time for, even one counts!
Postcards/stamps/pens/markers/grit & smiles all provided.as well as addresses of several key businesses. Let’s fill some mailboxes!
350 Salem OR volunteers will be available to answer any questions you may have about LNG and the pipeline and will provide some succinct points to write about.
Please support the IKE Box which is providing this space to us for free by grabbing a drink on your way in or out. Please share this event!
