We are a strong and growing group of concerned neighbors and local climate activists working to stop the world's largest fracked-gas to methanol refinery and export terminal from being built along the Columbia River in WA. Together we CAN stop this enviro-disaster in its tracks. Please join us in peaceful action! NO fossil fuels. NO Fracking.
YES to 100% renewable clean energy and a sustainable future.
