Big coal has big plans for Washington State. Coal companies want to build two massive export terminals in Washington so they can ship coal from Wyoming and Montana to China and all over the world.
This is one of the most important fights against coal in the country right now, because if we lose, it will seriously undermine much of the progress we've made to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and reduce the amount of dirty coal burned in the United States.
But Washington State can stop the coal industry in its tracks. Public Lands Commissioner Peter Goldmark and Governor Gregoire have the power to block the construction of these coal export facilities. They need to know that Washingtonians don't want the state to be used as an export hub for filthy and polluting coal.
Some info is available at the Sierra Club website, but I've attached the following which contains excellent information and links to follow if you choose.
