Protect Seattle from coal exports: Attend a workshop on October 9!
We have been hearing a lot lately about how our oceans are in trouble, how sea levels are rising and that our oysters and other shellfish can no longer survive in the Puget Sound. Climate Change is affecting the Pacific Northwest in some dramatic ways.
We must begin to take this seriously. Yet once again, Big Coal is threatening the Northwest with egregious plans to ship 44 million tons of coal through our region to markets overseas. These plans would release nearly as much carbon as the entire state of Washington does currently!
Join us for a community workshop to learn more about the coal exports proposal in Longview and how it affects the Puget Sound, our climate, and our children’s future. You will also learn all you need to know about the upcoming hearing in Tacoma on Oct 17.
Nearly 8,000 people attended the hearings last year on the Cherry Point proposal, and we are going to do it again, to make sure no community is sacrificed for dirty coal.
Attend a workshop on coal exports and protect our communities from dirty coal and halt climate disruption. RSVP now!
