Talking Points, courtesy of Columbia Riverkeeper.

Click HERE to complete online form urging Gov. Inslee to say NO to Methanol, NO to fracked gas on Columbia River.

Tell Gov. Inslee to publicly oppose the methanol refinery and protect Washington 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 WA's top contributor to climate pollution by 2025 [SEI]. Increasing Washington's fracked gas use by 38%, derailing our clean energy future, that's the wrong direction! Governor Inslee -- be our climate champ, say NO to methanol.
