(Seattle, WA)  --  Washington state Governor Jay Inslee is withdrawing his support for a pair of natural gas projects, including one in southwestern Washington.  Inslee announced his opposition yesterday to a project to turn fossil fuel into methanol in Kalama as well as a project to create a liquefied natural gas plant in Tacoma.  Inslee cited the accelerating threat of climate change in pulling his support for the projects.  Inslee says he initially thought the projects could help reduce greenhouse gas emissions but that he's no longer convinced the projects are sufficient to accomplish what's necessary to combat climate change.  Inslee notes that his opposition to the projects doesn't change the state's regulatory review process for them, which he says will remain objective.
