Keep the Coal Export Terminal Out of Washington

Out-of-state interests are pushing Longview, Washington to build a coal export facility to enable coal companies to export Montanan coal to China.  The facility would create 21 jobs more than the site's current tenant.  That is the only benefit it would provide the community.

At the same time, more than 5 million tons of coal per year would rumble through Longview, causing local air pollution and endangering fish and wildlife in and around the Columbia River.  Furthermore, even if everything goes according to plan, everyone pays the price when that coal reaches China and emits its greenhouse gases into our shared atmosphere.

Nobody benefits from this project except coal companies.  Ask Washington Governor Chris Gregoire to block this senseless facility.
