JCFC Endorses the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals

For nearly a decade, JCFC joined forces with local residents, business owners and organizations throughout Oregon to stop the Canadian fossil fuel firm Pembina from constructing a 232-mile-long liquid natural gas (LNG) pipeline. Because the pipeline’s purpose was to export LNG, it would have raised the price of natural gas for Southern Oregon residents by an estimated 25%, according to the US Department of Energy. Stopping the project was also critical to denying the fossil fuel industry a West Coast means of exporting fracked gas.

On December 1, 2021, JCFC and its allies in this struggle scored a major victory when Pembina officials formally ended efforts to obtain federal authorization to construct the Jordan Cove pipeline. A diverse group of individuals, organizations, and Native American tribes have opposed the project over the past several years. JCFC volunteers attended rallies, sent thousands of postcard notices to state representatives, and spoke at public hearings to protest the pipeline construction. After such a protracted battle, the Jordan Cove project has finally ended.

However, the larger fight is not over! JCFC continues to publicize the need for safe renewable affordable energy for all as part of the effort to stop climate change and the catastrophic fires caused by warming temperatures.
