How the largest county in Washington led the way in passing a moratorium on new fossil fuel infrastructure projects

King County (the largest county in WA and the 13th most populated County in the country) passed a moratorium on new fossil fuel infrastructure projects. This major win builds on the strategy of changing land use zoning codes to prohibit new fossil fuel infrastructure that has also seen major victories in Baltimore, MD, Portland, OR, Portland, ME, and five separate WA jurisdictions.

There’s a growing wave of communities stopping fossil fuel projects before they start – and Fossil Free King County organizers want your city or county to be next!

Please join us for a How We Won a Fossil Free KC Webinar on March 7, 8-9pm EST/5-6pm PST to learn more about this major win – and come away with stories, resources and inspiration to ban fossil fuels in your community.

On the webinar you can hear from organizers who led the Fossil Free KC campaign, as well as Fossil Free KC volunteers, community partners and a King County Councilmember who championed the legislation.

Also heck out either of’s recent blogs about the Fossil Free KC Campaign:

City by city, county by county, we can stop the build out of dirty energy infrastructure and send a clear message to both our elected officials and the fossil fuel industry – we demand a fossil free future, everywhere.
