Help Stop The Largest Oil Terminal In The Nation

The Washington state energy council recently released its draft environmental impact statement (DEIS), which shows the problems and risks posed by the Tesoro-Savage terminal. Even with its flaws, the DEIS describes the significant and unavoidable impacts that this terminal and its dangerous oil trains and tankers ships would cause.

For example, if the Tesoro-Savage terminal is built, an oil train derailment is expected once every two years! The DEIS exposes the risks of oil spills into the Columbia River and along the coast of Oregon & Washington, the dangers of building such a terminal in an earthquake zone, traffic impacts from train crossings, public health concerns, and the potential for catastrophic impacts to the environment

The harms and risks to our water, air, and health are simply too great – submit a comment today opposing this terminal!

Tesoro-Savage’s unprecedented and reckless proposal is drawing enormous opposition. Already, Columbia River tribes have come out in opposition, along with local longshoremen, firefighters, business leaders, health professionals, climate activists, neighborhood associations, faith leaders, the City of Spokane, the City of Portland, the City of Vancouver, and a clear majority of the local community.

Add your voice to the opposition: tell Governor Inslee’s energy council, the Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council (EFSEC), that this project is simply too risky; Tesoro-Savage is not the future we envision for Washington.
