Fighting Fossil Fuels

The rapid development of fossil fuel resources in the Western United States and Canada has prompted many recent proposals for new export terminals in the Pacific Northwest. For the past seven years, Crag has been working with allies to prevent the development of new fossil fuel infrastructure along the Columbia River and the Oregon Coast. While those efforts have been successful, we continue to see new proposals for the development of large-scale natural gas, crude oil, and other fossil fuel infrastructure in the Pacific Northwest. If we are to meet our greenhouse gas reduction targets and address climate change within the timelines to be effective, our communities need to move away from all fossil fuels and towards renewable energy.
