Just Weeks Left to Stop the Biggest Climate Disaster on the Columbia River

Tell Ecology: Reject the new fossil fuel refinery along the Columbia River.|

By Kate Murphy, community organizer at Columbia Riverkeeper

Meet Dylan Haviv. He’s a 10-year-old climate activist who wants Washington state to stop the world’s largest fracked gas-to-methanol refinery, proposed along the Columbia River in Kalama, WA. The clock is ticking: Washington regulators have less than three weeks to act.

Get inspired by Dylan’s powerful message. Will you join him in the fight against climate change? Take action today!

1) Amplify Dylan’s voice, share his story on social media.





2) Join youth activists like Dylan, act now! Sign the petition, sending your thoughts in real-time to Ecology.

3) Call the Washington Department of Ecology (Ecology) at 360-407-6969 and leave a short, friendly message:

“I am counting on Ecology to deny the Kalama methanol refinery. The project threatens Kalama, the Columbia River, and the entire state because of its climate-changing pollution. The methanol company continues to make misleading claims about the refinery’s purpose and impacts. Ecology should reject the refinery, which would use more fracked gas than all of Washington’s other industries combined and produce millions of tons of greenhouse gas pollution every year!”

The Kalama refinery would consume a stunning amount of fracked gas—more than all other Washington industry combined—and would quickly become Washington’s largest greenhouse gas polluter.

With your help, Ecology can do the right thing and deny the fracked gas-to-methanol refinery.
