Dan Serres speaking on
Proposed Gas Pipeline & LNG Projects: Putting Oregon Farms, Forests, and Rivers at Risk
Thousands of Oregonians are facing the potential use of eminent domain by private companies seeking to construct large-diameter pipelines to move natural gas through Oregon to the Western energy market, particularly California.
We will discuss the current and future impact of proposed pipelines on farmers and other landowners. We will also discuss why the Washington State Grange, environmental organizations, property rights advocates, and timber growers are opposing the project and how people can be involved in the effort to protect our farms, forests, and rivers from these unnecessary projects.
Dan Serres is an organizer for Columbia Riverkeeper. He was born and raised in Oregon City, and has spent the past three years working to stop large LNG developments on the Columbia River and Coos Bay. Dan has a Bachelors and Masters degree in Earth Systems from Stanford University.
Friday, February 8, 7:00-8:30pm.
