Support Jordan Cove

A group of young plaintiffs is asking a federal court to set aside a Department of Energy decision allowing natural gas exports from Jordan Cove — as if the embattled project wasn’t already beset by enough wrinkles.

The lawsuit seeks to force the U.S. government to phase out fossil fuels and draw down carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere. The legal argument incorporates the same logic behind the popular social media meme: “We don’t inherit the Earth from out ancestors; we borrow it from our children.”

A federal magistrate judge rejected motions by the government and industry groups to dismiss the case, adding another layer of uncertainty to the Jordan Cove project. Despite DOE approval, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission rejected a certificate to build the $6 billion LNG terminal on the Oregon coast.
