Sinking Oil on the Columbia

Oil trains are dangerous. We all saw these risks first-hand when an oil train derailed, spilled, and burned in Mosier, Oregon, in 2016.

On Wednesday, December 12, the Port of St. Helens Commission will decide whether to allow Global Partners to handle heavier oil. Right now Global is shipping ethanol. If the Port approves Global’s request, more oil trains can roll through Columbia County towns, Portland, Vancouver, and other communities.

Join us to urge the Port Commissioners to reject Global’s request and protect public health, safety, and drinking water from the risks posed by oil trains and oil spills:

Look forward to seeing you on December 12.
