After signaling its disinterest in exporting dirty coal overseas, the Port of Vancouver is poised to take on the shipment of another dirty fossil fuel – crude oil. On Thursday, June 27, the Port will hold an important meeting about the proposed oil terminal. Please join us and other concerned citizens at the meeting.

  • WHAT: Port of Vancouver Public Meeting about proposed Tesoro/Savage oil terminal. Public input will be allowed, likely at the beginning of the meeting.
  • WHEN: Thursday, June 27 (9:30 AM)
  • WHERE: Port of Vancouver Administrative Office (3103 NW Lower River Rd, Vancouver, WA)

See Sightline Institute’s just released report, The Northwest’s Pipeline on Rails, about the many plans to ship massive quantities of crude oil to Oregon & Washington ports and refineries. Their report presents the first comprehensive, region-wide review of all oil-by-rail projects planned or currently operating in the Northwest. ­
