A corporation named Millennium Bulk Terminals is proposing to build a coal-export terminal in Longview, Wash., near the Columbia River. This facility -- which if built will be the largest of its kind in North America -- would bring toxic coal dust, air pollution, and increased traffic to the Pacific Northwest. We can't let that happen.
Coal mined in Montana would be transported to the Longview terminal on trains and barges, threatening communities and wildlife all along the way with coal dust, diesel exhaust and spills. From the terminal, coal would be shipped to buyers in Asia, where its use would contribute to the climate crisis.
From mines in Montana, across tracks in Idaho, onto barges in Washington, and then through smokestacks in Asia, coal poses an unacceptable threat to our health and climate.
We have an opportunity to raise our voices against dirty coal and in favor of a clean-energy future.
