The focus of Rumble #8 will be the proximity of the CEI Hub to Forest Park, the urban canopy, shade equity, climate resilience and the forest-climate connection.
Rumble On The River community forums bring together expert voices to explain the risks of having 90% of Oregon’s fuel stored within city limits. The Critical Energy Infrastructure (CEI) Hub, a 6-mile stretch of aging tank farms, including Zenith Energy’s oil facility, stands on a seismic liquefaction zone in the Lower Willamette. This has the potential for a Deepwater Horizon level spill right on Portland’s riverfront. Twenty-nine neighborhood, labor, climate justice, faith-based and environmental advocacy organizations sponsor this series of free forums to increase public awareness and to seek solutions to the health, safety and seismic risks associated with the CEI Hub and Zenith Energy.
