Climate Change and the Trans-Pacific Partnership



With Jesse Swanhuyser

of the

Sierra Club Committee on International Trade,

Human Rights and the Environment


The Trans‐Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a massive “free trade agreement” that would impact nearly every aspect of our lives, from the food we eat, to the air we breathe, to the quality of our jobs. The TPP would likely increase U.S. natural gas exports to countries in the Pacific Rim from ports in Oregon, paving the way for more fracking across the United States. Despite its potentially huge impact on our lives, the TPP is being negotiated in near complete secrecy. Please join us on to learn more and how you can help influence the TPP.

This forum is sponsored by the Many Rivers Group—Sierra Club; and co-sponsored by the Service in Action Committee of the UUCE; the Eugene Interfaith Earthkeepers; the Oregon Fair Trade Coalition; and We the People, Eugene. For more information, contact Bill Rodgers: [masked]

About us: The Many Rivers Group is affiliated with State and National Sierra Club organizations.  The Sierra Club is the oldest and largest grass-roots environmental organization in the country, with nearly a million members and supporters nationwide.  The Many Rivers Group is an all-volunteer organization that represents Sierra Club members in Douglas, Coos, and Lane counties.  Please let us know us if you would like to join our our conservation and environmental protection efforts.

    Sorry to miss this terrific session. When I was in Indonesia this last October they were just as afraid of this secret trade deal as we should be.

    Overall, I enjoyed the presentation. However, I was confused about the first speaker's purpose. While she had some important things to say, I think better organization and alignment or connection with the main presenter would have been more useful.

    I'll be there as long as the climate doesn't change too much?
