Video: Hey NW Natural Interviews

Arrived too late to cover the Hey NW Natural Press Conference in front of NW Natural on Tuesday, December 8, 2009, but managed to get interviews with two of the organizers and one of the participants in the Conference.
Hey NW Natural Interviews
The Press Conference was held in order to deliver over 460 signatures on a petition opposing the NW Natural Gas proposed Palomar pipe line. Signatures included ratepayers of NW Natural as well as affected landowners.
Against NW Natural's wishes, and ordered by federal court, a list of over 1500 impacted landowners threatened by the development of the Palomar Pipeline has now become public.

This pipe line will connect the proposed Bradwood Liquefied Natural Gas facilities at the Oregon coast, near the mouth of the Columbia River, with an existing pipe line coming down from Canada to California. Besides the threat to private lands, a 47 mile long clear cut is proposed through the Mt. Hood National Forest, which will traverse scores of creeks and rivers, including both Fish Creek and the Wild and Scenic Clackamas River.

Interviewed were: Monica Vaughan from Hey NW Natural; Dan Serres from Columbia Riverkeeper; and Nick Englefried, as student at Pacific University.

Video is about 10 minutes in length.
