17 – Allie Rosenbluth – Rogue Climate
In this episode, Allie Rosenbluth tells us about her work organizing rural communities across southern Oregon to stop the proposed Jordan Cove Liquified Natural Gas export terminal and Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline.
The Jordan Cove LNG project would produce 15 times the climate pollution of Oregon’s last remaining coal plant and create enormous environmental impacts across 4 Oregon counties, including threatening drinking water for 160,000 people, increasing the danger of wildfires, and crossing through tribal lands.
Allie Rosenbluth is a recipient of the Community Sentinel Award for Environmental Stewardship. She is the Campaigns Director for Rogue Climate, a grassroots organization fighting for climate justice and clean energy in rural southern Oregon.

This podcast is a project of Halt the Harm Network, which can connect you with people who are working to protect families, communities, and the environment from the harms of fracking and the oil & gas industry.
As mentioned in this episode:
“People have been fighting the Jordan Cove Liquified Natural Gas export terminal project for over 15 years. Every year we’re fighting is a year that the project is failing. …There are so many reasons why people in southern Oregon are standing up against the Jordan Cove LNG project. It’s really created a beautiful community of people who are building relationships with each other, which is so important in rural communities where things can feel so divided.“
