We All Agree, No LNG!

 Video of Rally At FERC Hearing

Oregonians rally outside of the City Hall building where Oregon LNG was being investigated by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for misconduct and abuse of stakeholders in the permitting process to site Liquefied Natural Gas facilities on the Skipanon Peninsula in Warrenton, Oregon. Opposition to this project is strong and diverse, from environmentalists, to land owners, local businesses, sports and commercial fisherman, and to citizens in general who believe, for many reasons, that this proposed project is a bad idea for the local area and for Oregon in general.

One Earth Day 2010, FERC brought in a judge to hear testimony from those who filed complaints with their agency and from Oregon LNG, who denied any wrong doing.
Over 75 people met at 12:00 noon on a week day to voice their opposition to both this project and to another site, proposed for Bradwood Landing, on the Columbia River near Astoria Oregon.
At these sites liquefied natural gas, or LNG, will be imported from other countries, regasified, and then transported via the Palomar Pipeline across Mt. Hood National Forest National forest, necessitating a 47 mile long clear cut.

Objections to the Palomar Pipeline through the National Forest was just one of many reasons why the community gathered at City Hall to oppose these projects. Also, landowners object to the  compulsory purchase of their land.

This video is about 18 minutes in length and features interviews with affected landowners, concerned citizens, environmental groups, and folks who use the river for fishing and recreation.
