Tell Ecology: Deny the permit for the Kalama Methanol Refinery

Earlier this month, Cowlitz County issued the required shorelines permit for the world’s largest fracked gas-to-methanol refinery, proposed in Kalama, WA. Now, the Washington Department of Ecology has 30 days to approve or deny the massive refinery.

The Kalama Methanol Refinery would would use more gas than all of Washington’s gas fired power plants combined and would become the state’s single largest source of carbon pollution.

Hello, my name is _____ and I live in ______. 

I am calling to urge you to recognize the value of fully funding environmental programs. Environmental programs are a mere 1.9% of the state operating budget but these programs provide benefits to communities across the state through clean air, clean water, and thriving communities that make Washington a great place to live, work, and play.   

Specifically, I hope you will adopt a final budget that maintains funding for existing environmental programs and provide new funding for:

- Oil spill prevention (HB 1611)

- Reducing toxic pollution (HB 2182)

- The Clean Air Rule

- Puget Sound recovery

Thank you for all of your hard work during the 2017 legislative session and for considering my comments. I look forward to hearing from you, I can be reached at __(Phone Number)__.
