UN tries to ‘greenwash’ Portland – Rising Tide and YOU to the rescue! #FearlessSummer
June 5th Waterfront Park near the Hawthorne Bridge 2 PM
The United Nations enlisted Portland to host World Environment Day 2013. Sure, we
have bike lanes and curbside compost. But we also have coal and LNG export proposals,
oil export, and dozens more toxic industries who call this place home. False solutions to climate change abound. The UN Environmental Programme this year is focused on the theme of “Food Waste” yet the UN has also been promoter and developer for various False Solutions to the climate crisis which threaten food security and community resilience. Watch for updates from Rising Tide and allies about our “Climate Crisis is Food Crisis” potluck on June 5th in downtown Portland.

This summer we expect Oregon LNG and the Williams Pipeline Company to file their applications with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to site and construct a massive LNG export terminal and over 200 miles of new pipelines in Oregon and Washington. To prepare for FERC’s review process, Riverkeeper will be holding events to educate communities that would be impacted by these projects. The first of these events will be held in Longview, WA, on Monday, June 3rd. This will be informational meeting and discussion facilitated by Riverkeeper and our partners, Landowners and Citizens for a Safe Community & the Northwest Property Rights Coalition.
Please join Columbia Riverkeeper to learn more about the progress we’re making to keep the Lower Columbia River LNG-free.
