I live in a community where one of the LNG pipelines has been proposed. It disturbs me to think that we, as Oregonians, would even consider allowing LNG infrastructure here. Why in the world would we want to destroy our farmland, along with the natural beauty of Oregon, to build pipelines to import more foreign energy? I want Oregon to be a leader in renewable energy. LNG is NOT what I want for the future of Oregon. LNG terminals, along with the construction of pipelines, will devestate watersheds, harm salmon habitat, clearcut old growth forests, hurt family farms and raise energy costs in the state. Once the pipelines are installed, it will be too late. We will have to live with the permanent damage and the consequences forever. Let's say 'No' to LNG and strive towards energy independence. If we need to sacrifice our resources for the greater good, let's do it for something we can believe in. Let's invest in renewable energy and become a model State for the rest of our great nation.
