The Energy Council responsible for giving Governor Inslee a recommendation on how to proceed on the Tesoro Oil Terminal unanimously voted to disapprove the project!
Year after year, you have submitted public comments, showed up, and gave testimony that this project was simply too risky. You have demonstrated that this terminal was not in the best interest of the Pacific Northwest, our communities, and our climate.
The Council’s recommendation now goes to Governor Inslee to make a final decision. Once on his desk, Governor Inslee has 60 days to issue a decision. Sign the petition to Gov. Inslee!
We won’t let up until this project is done but for now, let’s celebrate and take a moment to thank all the people who have stepped up in opposition. This list is long – tribal members and leaders, public servants, doctors and other health professionals, community and environmental advocates, first responders, businesses small and large, labor unions, commercial and tribal anglers, families, people of faith and activists from across the region.
Elke and Alysia Littleleaf of the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs said, “We indigenous people of the Columbia carry a sacred duty to protect the health of the Columbia River from dangers like the Tesoro Savage oil terminal.”
Sarah and Laura from Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility agree: Fossil Fuels make us sick!
Our community turned out in force – in the rain and wind – to show Gov. Inslee that Washington stands for a clean energy economy and against dangerous crude oil terminals.
