We’ll stand with the Puyallup tribe Thursday afternoon on Sept. 21 in opposition of Puget Sound Energy’s plans to expand fracked gas infrastructure in Washington state.
Methane is 84 times more powerful than carbon dioxide as a greenhouse gas. The Australian-owned company wants to build a huge liquified natural gas (LNG) facility in Tacoma on the Puyallup River despite community and tribal opposition. We will rally at PSE’s offices regionally while others will gather at PSE’s home office in Australia.
Locally we will gather at their Freeland and Oak Harbor offices for a vigil and both to thank them for their efforts to promote conservation, but also to inform them of our fervent opposition to their plans for converting their Colstrip, Mont. plant to fracked gas and develop a LNG facility in Tacoma on the Puyallup River.
A formal letter will be presented to the manager urging them to support the urgent need for a just and rapid transition to clean, renewable energy. Their offices are located at 1794 Main St. in Freeland and at 360 N. Oak Harbor St. in Oak Harbor.
We do this in solidarity with the Puyallup tribe and for present and future generations. Join us 3-4:30 p.m., Thursday. Bring a sign.
