We are a strong and growing group of citizens working to stop the world's largest fracked-gas to methanol refinery and export terminal from being built along the Columbia River in southwest Washington. No more fossil fuels! Enough is enough. Keep it in the ground.


Comment period for New Draft EIS now open. Vital opportunity to say NO massive fracked gas refinery on the Columbia.

Informational Meeting 6-7:30 pm on 2/19 at Kalama Community Center. Other dates/locations listed HERE.

Contact Governor Inslee:
  • Phone: 360-902-4111 or 855-863-4214. Can call daily.
  • FAX: 360-753-4110
  • E-message through the Governor's website
  • Twitter @GovInslee and Facebook @WaStateGov
  • Snail Mail: Gov. Jay Inslee, Office of the Governor
    PO Box 40002, Olympia WA 98504-0002

Complete this Online Form urging Gov. Inslee to say NO to Methanol.

Tell Gov. Inslee to publicly oppose the methanol refinery and protect WA from a massive increase in fossil fuel use and infrastructure. As our "green governor" he must stand by his commitment to ACT ON CLIMATE, not allow this refinery to be built and become one of Washington state's top pollution emitters. Increasing WA's fracked gas use by 38%, that's the wrong direction! Governor Inslee -- be our climate champ.
