Please help Washington residents stop Northwest Innovation Works from building the world's largest fracked-gas to methanol refinery and export terminal proposed in Kalama along the Columbia River which obligates us to decades of fossil fuel dependency and new pipelines, all for a Chinese government-backed company to make plastics and profits while abusing our natural resources.

This refinery is a bad idea and we have one last hearing to try and stop this monstrosity on Thursday, Dec. 13 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Cowlitz County Event Center, 1900 7th Ave, Longview. (There is a rally at 5 p.m.). Please wear red and join us in opposing this refinery.

NWIW successfully lobbied for hundreds of millions of dollars in tax breaks, including avoiding $143 million in state and local taxes through 2021 and are seeking the full $1.8 billion dollars in costs of building a dock from Washington state employees.

The reasons to oppose it and more information can be found at nomethanol360.com, at Columbia River Keepers and the Sierra Club.
