San Francisco demands Oregon stop LNG plans

San Francisco board opposes Coos Bay LNG terminal
By Natural Resource Report,

When it comes to opposing a proposed liquefied natural gas terminal in Coos Bay foes will enlist support where ever they can find it.

In July, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors unanimously passed a resolution asking Pacific Gas and Electric Corporation to withdraw from partnership in the Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline.  The pipeline is part of the Jordan Cove LNG terminal project in Coos Bay.  Pacific Gas & Electric is the primary provider of electricity to San Francisco.  The resolution cites damage to the environment, safety risks to Coos Bay area residents and increased energy cost to Californians to justify the Board’s opposition to the project.  Supervisor, Chris Daly sponsored the resolution after an aide met with Jody McCaffree of North Bend and other opponents.
