We Say No to LNG

Here are comments that the League of Women Voters of Oregon have submitted to FERC in response to the DEIS of the Jordan Cove Energy Project LP, Docket No. CP17-495-000 and the Pacific Connector Pipeline LP, Docket No. CP17-494-000 on behalf of four Leagues in southern Oregon.

The opening paragraph:

 “Dear Ms. Bose: 

We write representing the League of Women Voters of Coos County (LWVCC), LWV of Umpqua Valley (LWVUV), LWV of Rogue Valley (LWVRV), and LWV of Klamath County (LWVKC). We are grassroots nonpartisan, political organizations operating in the four counties in Oregon that would be directly affected by the construction and operations of the proposed Jordan Cove Liquefied Natural Gas (JCLNG) and Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline (PCGP), commonly referred to collectively as the Jordan Cove Energy Project (JCEP). Our detailed review of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for this project shows that the projects are in direct conflict with many of the state and national League of Women Voters positions. These positions are based on study documents and consensus evaluations regarding natural resources, water quality and air quantity, climate change, offshore and coastal management, land use, public health and safety, energy conservation, and seismic risks.
