The fracked gas industry targeted Kalama to build the world’s largest fracked gas-to-methanol refinery. The project would drive a huge increase in Washington’s greenhouse gas pollution emissions while harming the health and safety of people in Kalama and Cowlitz County. Now is the time to make your voice heard and to call on state leaders to reject this dangerous proposal in our backyard.
The Department of Ecology is holding a series of virtual public hearings in September. In advance of the hearing, join us in a conversation to explore the human and environmental impacts of the world’s largest fracked gas to methanol refinery. The department of ecology’s latest impact statement omits many impacts. We will explore the full impacts of this project, from fracked gas extraction and transportation, to methanol refining, to shipping and final use.
