Chance for public to testify at Planning & Sustainability Commission meeting January 13
Portland was recently awarded the title of "Climate Action Champions." At the same time, the city is trying to change environmental regulations along the Columbia River to allow a new export terminal to ship dangerous liquefied propane, and thus faciltate increased fossil fuel production and consumption, meaning more climate changing emissions.
The Pembina Corporation, a Canadian oil company with heavy investments in the Alberta tar sands,announced plans in the fall of 2014 to build a propane (LPG) export terminal at the Port of Portland’s Rivergate Terminal on the Columbia River opposite West Hayden Island. This export terminal would require that a pipeline be built crossing a fragile riparian area along the Columbia River which is zoned as a conservation area. In order for the proposal to move forward, the city's zoning code prohibiting hazardous materials from being transported through conservation zones would have to be modified. Once modified, this zoning change would set a precedent that could allow additional fossil fuel infrastructure to be constructed in many other sites in the region.  
In this program, host Paul Roland speaks with Daphne Wysham and John Talberth.
 John Talberth is the co-founder and President and Senior Economist of the Center for Sustainable Economy (CSE). John was the co-founder of Forest Conservation Council in the late 1980s, and has led several grassroots campaigns to secure permanent protection for native forests and wildlands in the Pacific Northwest and Southwest, fight urban sprawl, and protect migratory birds.
 
Daphne Wysham is an associate fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS) where she directs and is the founder and director of the Sustainable Energy and Economy Network (SEEN). She has worked on research and advocacy at the intersection of climate change, human rights, fossil fuels, international finance, carbon markets and sustainable economies since 1996. She is concurrently a climate policy fellow at CSE.

There will be a hearing on this issue on Tuesday, January 13th at 2:30 p.m. A rally will start at 1:30.
Portland Bureau of Planning and Services, Planning and Sustainability Commission, 1900 SW 4th Ave. Suite 2500A in downtown Portland.
