Fossil Free KC

Fossil Free KC

King County is at a crossroads: we can get locked into decades of toxic fossil fuel infrastructure, or we can lead our region towards a healthy future for all. Check out the new blog post, and sign the petition!

Learn more and plug in at the next Fossil Free KC action meeting on Thursday 12/13, 6:30-7:30pm, at 1919 E Prospect St.

Action meetings are designed for new volunteers as well as people who are already plugged in. If you haven’t been to an action meeting yet, or know folks who are interested in getting involved, this is a great way to connect with the campaign.

What happens at an action meeting?

Last meeting, we laid out a strategy for building powerful grassroots energy for a Fossil Free KC – action opportunities included scheduling a meeting with our County Councilmembers and postcards to get the word out in our communities.

This Thursday, we’ll debrief and build on those action opportunities, with tools for engaging local businesses in support of a fossil free future.

Proposals for major fossil fuel projects in and around King County threaten our communities with air, water and climate pollution. But we don’t have to accept this toxic future.

Northwest communities like Portland, Hoquiam, Aberdeen, Tacoma and Whatcom County have successfully changed their land use zoning code to prohibit dangerous fossil fuel infrastructure. King County can make similar changes in its 2020 Comprehensive Plan and adopt a common-sense moratorium to freeze fossil fuel development in the meantime.

We’re calling on King County leaders to ban new fossil fuel infrastructure – will you join us?

Check out our community sign-on letter to King County leaders calling for a ban on all new fossil fuel infrastructure.
