Divest Corvallis! – Sign the Petition
Here in Corvallis and surrounding areas, we pride ourselves for being forward thinking when it comes to climate and sustainability, yet at the same time the City of Corvallis is considering whether or not they should invest our money in fossil fuel companies. We say no! If it’s wrong for these companies to trash the planet, then it’s wrong for us to profit from it. Sign the petition and share with your friends.
You’ve heard of the Keystone XL pipeline, but did you know about Oregon’s own Pacific Connector Pipeline? This proposed pipeline will transport fracked gas through sensitive areas and private property in Oregon. The gas will then be cooled into LNG (liquified natural gas) at coastal export terminals in areas vulnerable to earthquakes and tsunamis. And of course this all contributes to climate change.
Conserve energy and help Corvallis win the $5 million Georgetown University Energy Prize!
Corvallis is one of 50 communities in the U.S. competing to see who can lower residential and municipal gas and electricity usage the most over a two year period. The effort is being led by Energize Corvallis and the Sustainability Coalition’s Energy Action Team. If Corvallis wins the prize most of the money will be spent on programs to further the goal of reducing usage of fossil fuels, while some size-able chunks will be raffled off to a handful of lucky participants.
If you would like to sign up to participate, you can do so at the Energize Corvallis website.
