FOSSIL FUELS: Rio Grande LNG (liquefied “natural” gas, or LNG) is a proposed methane gas export terminal slated for Brownsville, Texas, in the Rio Grande Valley. This project, along with the proposed Texas LNG and Rio Bravo Pipeline, are clear cases of environmental racism with enormous, devastating impacts on community health, Indigenous rights, endangered species, and our shared climate.

There’s nothing “natural” about methane gas expansion. Methane gas has more than 80 times the warming power of carbon dioxide over the first 20 years after it reaches the atmosphere. Methane is highly volatile, and this build-out poses especially dangerous explosion risks.

Support the fight to stop this toxic project: Sign the petition demanding insurance companies to drop this LNG project now!

The Carrizo/Comecrudo Tribe of Texas, who are the original Indigenous people of the region, have not given their Free Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) for Rio Grande LNG. The proposed terminal will support the continued environmental racism in the Gulf by perpetuating the displacement, pollution, and physical harm of nearby communities.

Despite years of community resistance, Rio Grande LNG is set to move forward. But the project cannot be built without insurance.

That means that big insurance companies, such as Chubb, Liberty Mutual, and Sompo have the power to stop this project by refusing to insure it.

Support the fight for climate justice and the rights and sovereignty of the Carrizo/Comecrudo Tribe of Texas: Tell big insurance companies to drop this project!

They have a responsibility to listen to Indigenous and impacted communities and make crucial changes for people and the planet by publicly ruling out methane and Rio Grande LNG immediately, before the insurance renewal in March 2024.

We need meaningful climate solutions before it’s too late.
