Stop the biggest oil train terminal in North America

Action: Stop Pollution

December 18, 2015   Action Alert ID# 312

 

Following the Paris climate talks, oil companies' proposals for massive expansions of fossil fuel infrastructure appear cynical and decidedly tone-deaf. One company, Tesoro-Savage, wants to ramp up transport of Canadian tar sands and North Dakota crude by building a $190 million rail complex at Washington's Port of Vancouver.

The port would process 360,000 barrels of oil per day, or nearly half of what the entire Keystone XL pipeline would have carried. And these newly unearthed fossil fuels? They would be sold and burned, deepening the global climate crisis.

And the likelihood of an accident is no idle threat: In the past three years there have been 11 oil train derailments in North America, resulting in damaging spills and deadly explosions. Tesoro's project is expected to result in a derailment every two years.
