Stop oil trains in the Northwest

Action: Stop Pollution

November 23, 2015   Action Alert ID# 302

 

In the wake of Keystone XL's rejection, oil companies anxious to reroute their toxic assets have set their sights on pushing crude by rail through the Pacific Northwest.

One plan aims to build two new crude terminals in Washington state's Grays Harbor, but the issue is far from local. The plan would endanger hundreds of communities along the rail routes, which is why we need your help to stop it now.

We've seen how risks can quickly turn to tragedy: In the past three years there have been 11 oil train accidents in North America, including one in Quebec in 2013 that killed 47 people. Before that there was the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska and the Nestucca spill off Grays Harbor, both in 1989, that contaminated beaches and ravaged ocean wildlife.

The science is clear, and now it's time for us to make ourselves heard: The only safe home for these fossil fuels is in the ground. Urge the Washington Department of Ecology and city of Hoquiam to reject the proposed oil terminals.
