Rumble #11 will focus on Controversial Solutions of Climate Change. A number of these fossil fuel stand-ins are projected for our region’s near future. The panel will focus on projects that are promoted by the fossil fuel and financial industries: biomass, renewable diesel, hydrogen and carbon offsets. 

Rumble On The River Community Forums bring together expert voices to lay out the potential hazards of having 90% of Oregon’s fuel stored within city limits. The CEI—Critical Energy Infrastructure—Hub, a 6-mile stretch of aging tank farms, stands on a seismic liquefaction zone. The predicted event of a Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake has the potential for a Deepwater Horizon level spill right here on Portland’s riverfront. The CEI Hub poses serious health, safety, cultural, social justice, economic and environmental risks to every Portland neighborhood and the entire Northwest region. Zenith Energy stores and transports oil through the CEI Hub. Rumble topics include urban forests, shade equity, the heat dome phenomenon, Columbia & Willamette River ecosystems, floodplain resilience and salmon restoration.

Alex Budd - Organizer with Pacific Northwest Forest Climate Alliance

Barbara Bernstein - Audio/video documentarian, media gadfly, host of KBOO Radio’s Locus Focus
