Dear Ryan,
Power Past Coal for FB Longview hearingHelp our friends at Power Past Coal by commenting on the proposed coal export facility in Longview, WA.  

This is our opportunity to say NO to this coal export facility and to voice our concerns about specific impacts.

If approved, the Millennium Bulk Terminals proposal in Longview, WA would be the largest permitted coal export terminal in the United States with plans to export 44 million tons of coal annually. Right now, the three agencies involved in issuing permits are trying to decide which impacts to take into account in their decision making process.

In addition to saying NO, this is your opportunity to provide input on what impacts you believe should be considered.  There are a myriad of potential impacts from increased train and shipping traffic, to our fragile eco-system, to our air quality and water quality, to global warming and more. What's important is that you voice your concerns.

Because you stepped up in a powerful way there were over 124,000 comments submitted last fall concerning the coal export proposal just north of Bellingham.  And thousands of you attended in person! Your diligence paid off, and the agencies listened.  This proposal is just as disastrous as the previous one you commented on. Please comment today, and say NO to coal export!

Let's make it clear we don't want coal in Northwest or Southwest Washington. We don't want it in Oregon. We don't want it. Period.

In addition to the noise, traffic congestion and air quality degradation, we'd get a new identity as one of the world's largest exporters of climate-disrupting dirty coal.

This is not us.  We're pioneering the clean energy revolution – building a stronger regional economy and developing clean energy solutions that work for the long haul. Let's stand up against these dirty plans and demand a better, cleaner future for our children and our communities.

Thank you for your vital part in this movement!
