The final environmental impact statement for the world’s largest fracked gas and methanol refinery proposed to be built in Kalama is inaccurate and misleading. It fails to take into account public health and our climate, which would be threatened not only by the refinery and the products it intends to create, but also by the fracked gas pipeline expansion needed to fuel this monster of a project.
Fracking damages public health, pollutes water and contributes to climate change. The scientific community widely agrees that we have approximately 11 years to avert climate disaster. Why is Washington state even considering allowing this fossil-fuel guzzling refinery to be built? The Department of Ecology and Gov. Inslee know better than to accept this green-washed report. I call on them to deny this project once and for all.
