Shell wants to bring mile-long trains full of highly toxic and explosive crude oil from Canada and North Dakota to its refinery in Washington state.
Shell's refinery sits on the shore of Puget Sound, with the Padilla Bay National Estuarine Reserve next door. The oil train project could have devastating impacts to nearby wildlife and sensitive ecosystems, but the issue is far from local. This project would endanger hundreds of communities along the rail routes through North Dakota, Montana, Idaho and Washington.
Local elected officials and decision-makers need to know the truth about the impacts before they decide. Shell will try to keep the analysis quick and simple. Your voice will help counter that pressure and make sure a full environmental review is done.
