Energy speculators from New York, Texas and California have descended on Oregon with plans for three massive Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) port and storage terminals. Two LNG terminal ports are proposed for the lower Columbia River and one is planned for Coos Bay. Each of these terminals would include over 220 miles of high-pressure gas pipelines that would rip across sensitive wildlife habitats in Coos Bay and the Columbia Estuary, across thousands of Oregonian’s family farms and forestlands, and through important forest habitats including Mt. Hood. Numerous state agencies from Oregon DEQ to ODFW have raised serious concerns about the project’s impacts, and a diverse coalition of conservationists, farmers, commercial and sport fisherman, business leaders, private property rights advocates, Native Americans are opposing one or more of these projects.
