Jodi Stark signed Sign the Howe Sound Declaration 2019-11-07 11:04:30 -0800During this time of climate crisis, it is painfully obvious that we need to be moving away from all fossil fuel use, including LNG, not expanding infrastructure.
Methane from LNG has been under-reported and makes natural gas a major climate pollutant.
Methane is an extremely potent greenhouse gas and has an atmospheric lifespan is only around 10 years, much less than carbon dioxide’s so limiting LNG is a quick win for the climate.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.
