Join the next Fossil Fuel Resistance Team meeting!
In order to stop the climate crisis from getting worse, we have to keep the remaining fossil fuel reserves in the ground. The Pacific Northwest is currently facing many active proposals for new fossil fuel infrastructure that if built would lock us into the fossil fuel economy and its carbon pollution for decades to come. The Fossil Fuel Resistance team seeks to stop new fossil fuel projects from being built in Portland or to service the Portland metro area, and to engage in regional fights to stop all new fossil fuel infrastructure in the PNW and beyond!
Current fights



Stop Jordan Cove LNG Export Terminal and Pacific Connector Pipeline (down in Southern Oregon)
Zenith Energy – Oil Trains in Portland – Alberta tar sands is being covertly exported right under our noses
Stop Kalama Methanol Refinery – if built would be largest in the world
Perennial Wind Chaser – a nice sounding name for a proposed 415-megawatt fracked gas power plant in Central Oregon
Click here to read more about this team



If you’re new and want to get up to speed, please let Melanie know (team co-lead, melanie.plaut@gmail.com) and she can meet you 30 minutes before the start time to explain what the team is up to.

Come to the NE Portland Neighborhood meeting to find out about local and state wide climate initiatives and actions. We’d love to see you there!

Jan 31 Fri
Every Friday folks are assembling outside City Hall in an energetic and colorful vigil to keep the pressure on Mayor Ted Wheeler to shut down the Zenith tar sands terminal in NW Porland, and to raise awareness from people and cars passing by.
Bring signs or banners, or just bring yourself. Among the many things such a sign can say is “Fire Drill Fridays,” “Stop Zenith Energy,” “No More Bomb Trains,” “Mayor & Commissioners: Stand Strong!” 2×3 signs are big enough to be visible to walkers-by and drivers-by.
These vigils typically have strong representations from 350PDX, the Stop Zenith Energy Collaborative, the Raging Grannies, Red, Extinction Rebellion, several students from Portland Public Schools and PSU, and a 12 foot tall puppet and some excellent street theater!!

We look forward to seeing you on Friday 12-1 pm, in front of Portland City Hall. Let’s keep this growing!

“Occupella is a group of social justice singers and instrumentalists. We sing to promote peace, social and environmental justice, and an end to corporate domination.
You are invited to sing with us on the first Sunday in February! We will introduce ourselves, discuss the connection between music/song and social justice organizing, and join together in song as we fundraise for two local organizations. 350PDX is a people-powered movement to fight for a just transition and an end to the climate crisis. Never Again Action is a Jewish political organization that uses nonviolent resistance to protest Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Our sing-a-long event is free but we will pass the hat for donations to these two organizations working on human rights and climate issues. Some light refreshments will be served – please bring your own reusable cup or water bottle for beverages. Hope to see you there!” Facebook event here.

The Oregon Department of State Lands (DSL) was set to make a decision about the critical “removal-fill” permit for Jordan Cove LNG by no later than Friday, January 31st. Jordan Cove LNG, fearing a denial, withdrew its application on Thursday, January 24th: www.rogueclimate.org/jordancovelngwithdraws
Impacted landowners, tribal members, and south coast residents working to protect Oregon from Jordan Cove LNG will hold a press conference in response to Jordan Cove LNG’s withdrawal on Tuesday, February 4th at 9:30am immediately prior to the State Lands Board meeting at the Department of State Lands in Salem.
The massive Jordan Cove LNG export terminal and 229-mile Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline cannot be built without a removal-fill permit. The Department of State Lands has the authority to deny permits for projects that are not consistent with the protection, conservation, or best use of Oregon’s waters and that unreasonably interfere with navigation, fishing, or public recreation. Over 49,000 comments were submitted to DSL by impacted communities and close to 3,000 people, mostly rural Southern Oregon residents, spoke out against the project at overflowing DSL hearings in Klamath County, Jackson County, Douglas County, Coos County, and Salem. After two years of wasting state agency time and taxpayer money, Jordan Cove LNG clearly did not meet the bar to get this state permit. Oregonians are calling on Pembina to withdraw the fracked gas project entirely.
Please WEAR RED as we respond to Jordan Cove LNG’s withdrawal and show the Department of State Lands and Oregon Governor Kate Brown that we are watching this process closely. #StopJordanCove #NoLNG
When: Tuesday, February 4th, 9:30am
Where: Oregon Department of State Lands, 775 Summer St. NE, Salem, OR
Press conference: 9:30-9:50am
State Lands Board Meeting: 10:00am
