John Wood signed Sign the Howe Sound Declaration 2019-11-07 11:00:47 -0800The concept that Natural gas is clean energy must be challenged. The extraction process on top of the burning adds the GHG. The concept that coal burning will be reduced by availability of LNG is false. Fossil products must stay in the ground and remain sequestered and this should be our goal. This is a crisis and an emergency but it is being treated like a curiosity by our political leadership. This must change. Stop LNG exports. Figure out how we go forward with less rather than more fossil energy. Figure it out NOW before it is too late.20,364 signatures
Howe Sound is world renowned for its wild natural beauty, recreational opportunities, and the vibrant communities we call home. We value intact ecosystems that sustain and support our communities, our livelihoods, and our diverse local economies.
The proposed Woodfibre LNG project is based on faulty economics, will harm marine and terrestrial ecosystems, and poses an unacceptable health and safety risk for the communities of Howe Sound. This project does not fit our values.
We call on the Provincial and Federal governments to reject the Woodfibre LNG project and its associated pipelines and tankers.
