Year-end review of actions to protect the "the Thin Green Line" of resistance in the Northwest.
Just before the Christmas recess Congress passed a budget resolution that includes an amendment to lift the ban on exporting crude oil. Lifting the ban puts that much more pressure on the Pacific Northwest from the fossil fuel industry, which wants to turn the region into a hub for exporting fossil fuels.

On this episode of Locus Focus we'll look back at the past year's actions to stave off this pressure and protect the "the Thin Green Line" of resistance. Guest Dan Serres, with Columbia Riverkeeper, will review this past year of climate action in the face of the fossil fuel industry's aggressive plans to build oil, coal, LNG and liquid propane terminals across the Northwest.

Dan Serres is the conservation director for Columbia Riverkeeper, where he works to protect the Columbia River from a barrage of dirty fossil fuel export proposals including LNG export terminals, coal export terminals, oil-by-rail facilities, and power plants.

Make your voice heard at the Tesoro-Savage Oil Terminal Public Hearing, Tuesday, Jan. 5, 2016, 1:00 PM - 11 PM.
