North America's Largest Oil Train Terminal - Tell Governor Inslee "No Way"

The Tesoro-Savage oil train terminal proposed for Vancouver, WA would be a nightmare for the Pacific Northwest.

The company wants to send up to five 100-car long trains loaded with toxic, explosive crude oil by millions of people along the rail line every single day. Not to mention the 54 million tons of greenhouse gases the terminal expansion would create.


Send a message to Governor Inslee while there’s still time to stop North America’s biggest oil train terminal.

Now is the time to reject the Tesoro-Savage project in Vancouver, WA

Dear Governor Inslee,

Now is the time to reject the Tesoro-Savage project in Vancouver, WA.

This project is simply too risky. It would send up to five 100-car long trains loaded with toxic, explosive crude oil by millions of people along the rail line every single day. Not to mention the 54 million tons of greenhouse gases the terminal expansion would create.


Since the project was first proposed, we have seen dozens of oil train derailments and other spill disasters across North America, including one that killed 47 people in Lac Megantic, Quebec and another that spilled oil into the Columbia River and evacuated school children in the Columbia River Gorge town of Mosier, Oregon.

The opposition is clear and growing: already, over 300,000 comments and petitions have urged denial of the Tesoro Savage oil train proposal. The Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council, the City of Vancouver, City of Spokane, City of Portland, Washington Department of Natural Resources, Columbia River Tribes, ILWU Local 4, Vancouver Firefighters Union, the Waterfront Development Group, Attorney General Bob Ferguson, and dozens of member organizations of the Stand Up to Oil Coalition have demonstrated that the proposed Vancouver oil train terminal poses an unacceptable risk to the health, safety, environment, and climate of Northwest residents.

I urge you to use listen to the myriad of voices calling for an end to reckless and danergous oil trains in Washington. Please use your authority to deny the largest oil train proposal in North America and reject the Tesoro-Savage oil terminal permit.
