Join us for a free viewing of Folly of Frack, a play about the proposed fracked gas projects threatening our region. The play will be followed by informational speakers and an opportunity to take action!

We’re working to stop massive fracked gas expansions in Washington.

1. Puget Sound Energy is proposing to operate a massive liquified natural gas (LNG) facility in Tacoma, that would sacrifice community health and safety, ratepayer money, and Puyallup Tribal land.

2. The world’s largest fracked gas to methanol refinery, proposed in Southwest Washington would increase our state’s global warming emissions by nearly 10%. It would consume more gas than any sector of Washington’s economy, necessitating a new fracked gas pipeline which may go down the entire length of our state.

Join us in stopping these dirty and dangerous projects!

Two thirds of “natural” gas is fracked. Fracking is a dirty and environmentally hazardous extraction process that emits a pollutant called methane. When properly accounting for methane leaks, fracked gas has climate impacts that rival those of coal. Utilities and fossil fuel companies are trying to build two massive fracked gas facilities, right here in Washington.
