    Explained: Climate Impacts of Fracked Gas

    WHAT: Learn how the gas industry, led by Portland General Electric (PGE) and Northwest Innovation Works, is attempting ratchet up the Pacific Northwest’s carbon-intensive fracked gas consumption, with drastic impacts on our river and our climate. The Pacific Northwest stands squarely between the world’s most voracious energy markets and the huge deposits of coal, oil, and natural gas in North America’s interior.

    WHO: Tarika Powell, senior research associate at Sightline Institute, will expose how the fracked gas industry plans to hijack the Pacific Northwest’s clean energy future and why it’s a threat to the Pacific Northwest.

    WHEN: Tuesday, April 18, 2017; 7:00–8:30pm (doors at 6:30, arrive early and enjoy music by the Lambert Street String Band).

    WHERE: Central Lutheran Church, 1820 NE 21st Ave, Portland, OR 97212.

    BACKGROUND: Northwest Innovation Works: Two gas-to-methanol refineries in Kalama, Washington, and Clatskanie, Oregon, would consume a staggering amount of fracked natural gas—just to make more plastic in China. The refineries threaten our climate and local property rights, and could trigger a substantial expansion of gas pipeline infrastructure in the Pacific Northwest, locking our region into decades of fracked gas consumption.PGE: In 2016, landmark legislation was enacted to transition Oregon away from fossil fuels like coal and toward clean, renewable power. But PGE doesn’t want to keep its promises. PGE is trying to replace coal-fired power with fracked gas power plants. We need to hold PGE accountable to ensure that Oregon gets clean energy, not more fossil fuels and carbon emissions.
