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.
