Tell Eugene City Council to Stand Up to NW Natural

We are excited to announce that we are a part of a new coalition of grassroots organizations in Eugene working to get the city off of “natural” gas. Our Drawdown campaign laid a lot of the groundwork for this coalition, and now with the NW Natural Franchise Agreement being decided in May, it’s time to be bold! 

Action:
  1. Show up to the (virtual) City Council and Sustainability Commission meetings and make a public comment! The meetings are listed on our calendar and we have talking points on our website. The City Council (December 14th, 7:30pm) needs to hear your voice on this issue so they start taking it seriously! 
  2. Submit Letters to the Editor to the Eugene Weekly or Register Guard! Check out our Letters to the Editor page for some inspiration. Our talking points are useful for this as well!
  3. Send an email to your City Councilor! We’ve already come up with a basic letter, but adding your own thoughts makes it much more impactful.

Protect Kalama and Our Climate

By the end of December, we expect the Washington Department of Ecology to release the final decision on the shorelines permit for the world’s largest fracked gas-to-methanol refinery, proposed in Kalama, Washington.

Read more about this project here

Action:
  • Send an email to Washington leaders to reject permits for this project.
  • Make a phone call to Governor Inslee’s office at 360-902-4111 and Press “2” to leave a comment. Leave a message telling him that you are counting on his administration to deny the Kalama methanol refinery and its feeder pipeline, a project that would use more fracked gas than all of Washington’s power plants, combined. (A quick tip – it’s important to press “2” after dialing 360-902-4111 for Governor Inslee’s office. Otherwise you have to listen to a long phone menu!)
