No coal export signs

PAUL K ANDERSON

Yes: We can stop the largest coal export project in America

Together we have fiercely stood up to Big Coal for the past six years, and we are so grateful for YOU.
 
Now is our moment of truth to say NO to what would be the nation's largest coal export terminal. Stand with us to support the health of our communities and climate.  
 
This is the big one—the massive Millennium coal export terminal proposed in Longview, Washington. The public comment period on the terminal’s Draft Environmental Impact Statement is well under way; we have one week left to weigh in.
 
 
This project would spread toxic coal dust in dozens of Northwest’s communities, clog our railroads and ports, risk our families’ health, pollute our air and water, and stoke the climate crisis.
 
Coal’s future is bleak – Millennium backer Arch Coal filed for bankruptcy in January and just last week qave up its 38% share of Millennium Bulk Terminals. Their dreams of mining in Montana’s Otter Creek are over. But Big Coal still wants to have a dirty coal chute to Asia as their last hope to prop up an unhealthy industry.
 
Fortunately, the movement to stop dirty coal from polluting our towns and rivers is bigger and stronger than ever. Now is our time to raise our voices, and lock out dirty coal once and for all.
