I live in Wenatchee, a ways up the Columbia from Cape Disappointment, and have come to cherish the entire river including the water near your community.

The Columbia's legacy is testament to the beauty of creation even while carrying downstream the injuries we brought upon it. Many have come to the understanding that you cannot have mega projects on the river and not do the river harm. Such is the plan to building an LNG plant on the lower Columbia River.

We hear all the corporation's carefully placed and well-funded pitches but deep in our hearts we know better. We know that the LNG company is buying its way to exploit the river through its highly touted mitigation schemes. If allowed, the huge tankers will come to define an area previously defined by local culture and great soulfulness.
