MVP’s Attacks Fall Flat: Our Response to Mountain Valley Pipeline, LLC Filed in the FERC Docket
Mountain Valley Pipeline, LLC’s (MVP) attacks on our greenhouse gas methodology are not aligned with the best available science.

Oil Change International response to FERC approval of Jordan Cove LNG
The Jordan Cove LNG project would be a climate disaster, responsible for at least 36 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions – more emissions than any other source in the state of Oregon if it were to be built. For over fifteen years, this project has been delayed, denied, and protested at every step of the way. Three key state permits have already been denied, rendering FERC’s approval likely impotent, and highlighting the fact that FERC acts as an industry rubber stamp, ignoring local opposition and state permitting decisions.
