Inslee should stop projects

The Tacoma LNG facility and the Kalama methanol refinery are contributors to global warming.

The health and wildness of our beautiful state of Washington are dependent on a healthy climate as well as careful management of our resources.

I believe that there is adequate evidence that our planetary climate is changing due to the continued increase in greenhouse gases. Fracked natural gas is dangerous for our climate. The LNG facility in Tacoma and the Kalama methanol refinery are both going to contribute adversely to our global warming problem. They are also going to increase air and water pollution around Tacoma and Kalama.

Gov. Inslee has stated his position as a climate champion. I am grateful that he has worked to protect Washington from fossil fuel projects, and I want to encourage him strongly to stop the Tacoma LNG facility and the Kalama methanol refinery.
