Dear Activist- Join Greenpeace and allies as we rally to let Gov. Kitzhaber know we need him to lead on climate! Big coal upstart Ambre Energy is trying to force just under 9 million short tons of coal by way of barge on the Columbia River right here in Oregon. Carpools: Portland Carpool and Bus Info: 8AM Departure Hollywood Trader Joe’s 4121 NE Halsey St Portland, OR Corvallis Carpool Info: 8:45AM Departure NW 1st and NW Tyler, Corvallis, OR Parking area behind the Super 8 hotel Sending toxic coal on barges that have never been built before is too risky. It will damage our fragile ecosystems, our communities, and our climate. We can’t let Ambre Energy get this permit approved. This coal company failed to meet three deadlines to fully disclose the impacts of its proposed export terminal in Boardman, OR, deliberately misleading the public. Ambre Energy even withdrew a permit request for the proposed Millennium Bulk Terminal in Longview, WA only after a lawsuit and exposé of internal documents revealed the company lied to state and county officials about the amount of coal they wanted to export through the Northwest. After this toxic coal company failed to disclose the devastating impacts of its proposed export terminal in Boardman, we’re asking Governor Kitzhaber to be a leader on climate and protect Oregonians from big coal and all new fossil fuel construction. RSVP now for the rally to make your voice heard! Follow or copy link http://members.greenpeace.org/event/view/4578/ The State Land Board, which Gov. Kitzhaber leads, will soon be making a determination with regard to Ambre Energy’s permit application. It’s time for the Governor to be a leader on climate and deny Amber Energy’s proposed coal export terminal request. We must make opposition clear-- we don’t want Oregon to become a corridor for fossil fuel exports to Asia. We want to keep coal in the ground where it belongs. Period. Stopping coal exports isn’t just crucial for the Northwest. Around the globe, we must stop major new fossil fuel projects in order to prevent catastrophic climate change. That’s why Greenpeace is working to halt Arctic drilling, the Keystone XL Pipeline and coal export projects that threaten our planet’s future. RSVP today to let Governor Kitzhaber know we need him to lead on climate and acknowledge his role as a key decision-maker!
