Stop the Tacoma LNG Project
October 23, 2018
“Puget Sound Energy’s (PSE) eight million gallon liquified natural gas (LNG) project threatens Tacoma, the nearby Puyallup Tribe, and our global climate. Construction on the 14-story tall fracked gas tank at the Port of Tacoma has already begun, but a final permit from the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency has delayed this project until an environmental study can be completed. Because of this development, the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency has started a comment period on the supplemental environmental review. This means that by completing this form, you can submit your comments to help make the case for why this project should be denied.
We know that most “natural” gas is fracked, and that when we consider how dirty that process is, gas is often as bad as coal or diesel. Building more fracked gas infrastructure now commits the company to decades of buying gas from fracking wells with massive methane leaks. In light of the latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, we know we don’t have decades to spare. The time is now to turn to clean energy alternatives.
We know we can win this fight, as just earlier this year, the Air Agency dealt the project a set back, requiring further significant environmental review on the climate impacts of fracked gas. Now is the time to make sure they stop this project for good!”
