SALEM, Ore. (AP) — A U.S. regulatory agency on Thursday approved a controversial natural gas pipeline and marine export terminal project in Oregon, but the state's Democratic governor threatened to go to court to stop the project if it doesn't obtain every permit required from state and local agencies.

The Jordan Cove project, which would create the first LNG export terminal on the West Coast in the lower 48 states, has already been denied one state permit.

“Currently, this project does not have a green light from state agencies,” Gov. Kate Brown said. “I have asked the state’s lawyers to consider all appropriate legal action to assure that Oregon permitting processes will be followed.”

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in Washington voted 2-1 in favor of the terminal. Commission Chairman Neil Chatterjee said it is now up to Pembina, the Canadian energy company behind the Jordan Cove project, to obtain all the necessary permits "before construction begins."

1. Someone I respect who lives in OR

thinks this is a good idea. He says that it will help China use cleaner energy.
I just don't see the benefits outweighing the risks.

2. Your friend is very much in the minority here.

Very much.

The survey found 57 percent either strongly opposed or leaned toward opposing the Jordan Cove Energy Project, versus 22 percent who either leaned toward supporting or strongly supported the project. Twenty percent of respondents were undecided or neutral. Those results were consistent statewide, even in the congressional district where the project would be located.

Statewide, 30 percent of those surveyed strongly opposed the project, while only 6 percent strongly supported it.

3. I am surprised by his position

It's one of those, "You think you know a person..." things.

4. None of us seem to manage being right on every position, it would seem.

I was wrong about something once, though I might be remembering it wrong.

5. It ain't coal

LNG is a medium bad. My welding self wants a job there. I turned down Keystone XL. Lost 1/4M$ for that act. 70-80 hr weeks but it pays well.

Hey kids, if you want to have the money to go college learn welding and do that for a couple years. When I went to school we'd go fish in Alaska for the summer. 6 to a bedroom in sleepng shifts. Beats going into longterm debt, really.

9. The project has been injecting money into OR to grease the wheels... ruination of our

environment out here, cut and slash through rivers, streams, our mountain areas, befoul those same streams and ocean when it is done. The jobs are all temp-construction with few after the build. It's all BS and money for the uber-rich again. It just stinks.
