Seattle City Council members heard testimony on a resolution today.
The resolution urges the Port of Seattle to reconsider its controversial decision to host Shell Oil’s arctic drill rigs.
The resolution warns that allowing Shell to use Terminal 5 in West Seattle will cause: “disruption, division and direct conflict with the Port’s stated values and policies.”
At the hearing, environmentalists made their opposition to the Shell lease known. But others who testified felt differently.
Joshua Berger represents the Washington Maritime Federation.
