Rumble On The River Community Forum #14
“Renewable Diesel: Boon Or Boondoggle?”

Sunday, March 3rd, 10:45 AM – 12:25 PM
Public Interest Environmental Law Conference
University of Oregon, Eugene Campus, Law School, Room 175  

The predicted event of a Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake has the potential for a Deepwater Horizon level spill on Portland’s riverfront. Zenith Energy sits within the CEI Hub transporting and storing Bakken oil. There has been extensive outcry from the community and elected officials about the health, safety and climate justice impacts associated with the Hub. Zenith Energy has promised to swap out their oil-based operations for renewable diesel. The Rumble #14 panel will expose the alleged benefits of renewable diesel and question if this trade-off will actually help community members and the river ecosystem.

Panelists include:
Nick Caleb. Climate & Energy Attorney for Breach Collective 
Gary Hughes. Americas Program Director for Biofuel Watch
Barbara Bernstein. Media Project; KBOO Radio-Locus Focus
Michael Pouncil. Planning Commissioner, City of Portland’s Bureau of Planning & Sustainability; Portland Harbor Community Advisory Group

Kelly Campbell–Policy Director for Columbia Riverkeeper
Lloyd Marbet–Executive Director of the Oregon Conservancy Foundation 
Dan Serres-Advocacy Director for Columbia Riverkeeper

Moderator: Dineen O’Rourke. Campaign Manager for 350PDX.
