LNG's public image as a "climate solution" has shifted to "climate disaster" and rightly so. Many LNG projects are pulling the plug: from Goldboro LNG in Nova Scotia, to Kitimat LNG where both Chevron and Woodside have announced a fire sale with no buyers on the horizon.Read more

BC will be heading to the polls in a matter of weeks. If we want to elect a government that is truly committed to tackling the climate crisis, ending fossil fuel subsidies, and protecting our environment, this next period is critical.
Right now we have a major opportunity to influence the platforms of the major parties, put the issues we care about at the top of candidate’s agendas, and make sure that people who care about the environment are getting out to vote. But how we do this, and how effective it is, depends on you!
To run an effective campaign that puts our issues on the political agenda and engages the public to get out and vote, we need all hands on deck. Here are some of the tactics we are considering in the next few weeks. Which ones would you be willing to participate in?Become a volunteer

Eoin Finn commented on How we plan to stop Woodfibre LNG... for good. 2017-11-05 14:51:51 -0800Some people think exporting LNG to Asia is a profitable business. Not so. The only LNG export plant currently operational in the U.S. (Cheniere Energy in Louisiana) just posted its fifth consecutive annual loss ($610 Million) . That’s a total 5-year loss of $3 Billion. 5 more U.S. LNG plants currently under construction hope to do better.
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, worsen climate change, 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.
