Pete Nichols talks to Waterkeeper Alliance Senior Organizer Lesley Adams about a fracked gas pipeline that would trample farms, ranches, and tribal lands to reach a proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) export terminal in Coos Bay, Oregon. The proposed 229-mile pipeline would impact more than 400 waterways, including the Rogue, Umpqua, and Klamath Rivers. The LNG terminal would be one of the largest climate polluters in the state.
The terminal and pipeline project has been proposed in some form or another for ten years. While the proposal has taken different shapes throughout those years, one trajectory has remained solid: the opposition to this project has consistently strengthened, deepened, and broadened.
A coalition made up of organizations, landowners, businesses, climate activists, conservationists and concerned citizens is working together to keep fracked gas exports out of Oregon.
