Since the COVID-19 Pandemic struck, there have been important developments in the fifteen year struggle to stop the Jordan Cove LNG Export Terminal and Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline. When we last talked about this issue, the state of Oregon had just denied two critical permits that are required for the project to proceed and we were waiting for the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to make their decision on whether or not to approve the project. Once the pandemic became a global crisis most people thought that FERC would put their decision on hold while concerns about COVID-19 took center stage. But that did not happen.
On this episode of Locus Focus we talk with Allie Rosenbluth—Rogue Climate Campaigns Director—and Ashley Audycki—Rogue Climate Coos County Community Organizer, about how the Tribes, impacted landowners, community members and the State of Oregon, are fighting back against FERC's conditional approval of Jordan Cove LNG in the midst of this global pandemic.
Check out these two webinars that we talk about in this show:
