I have been involved for years now in the struggle against LNG on the Columbia River and I have not met your "opponents of every conceivable project." That characterization is a cheap and easy ploy to dismiss people without fact or any effort at making a reasoned argument.
As for myself, I have actively opposed two things. One is LNG. The other was shipbreaking at Tongue Point in Astoria. Both arrived with the same set of promises. Both were speculator-driven schemes that would have been destructive to the community and to the Columbia River.
Your comment also ignores all of the positive development that has occurred in the Astoria area in the past 15 years. Economic development doesn't have to trample Oregon values or quality of life.
