NW Climate and Clean Energy Coalition co-lead
Background: The Puget Sound Clean Air Agency (PSCAA) has provided preliminary approval for the Puget Sound Energy (PSE) Tacoma Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) facility. A public disclosure request has revealed that NW Pierce county, portions of SW King county and most of Vashon Island is in the blast zone, should the tank rupture and catch fire.
Moreover, the Environmental Impact Statement actually concludes that use of LNG for shipping, the primary use of this facility, is actually worse for the environment than doing nothing.

Draft Regional Transportation Plan 2040
Open House for Public Review and Comment
Next Tuesday in Port Angeles and Wednesday in Port Townsend is an open house for the Peninsula Transportation Plan (for both the Olympic Peninsula and Kitsap Peninsula).
This is the big picture long term plan for how transportation (all transportation, not just buses) will work on the peninsulas, so it is a great place for people to come and voice the need for more greenhouse gas emission mitigation measures in our transportation system (which second to our forestry practices is the largest source of CO2 on the Olympic Peninsula).
