Pacific Northwest Says NO to fossil fuel exports!

The Pacific Northwest is under attack.  We will fight back: defending what we love, and our climate future.  Big coal, oil, and gas plan to transform the NW coastline from Oregon up to Alaska into a vast fossil fuel corridor with over 15 export terminals proposed.

On July 27th folks from throughout the Northwest will come together joining national Summer Heat actions for a fun and family-friendly action, combining fights to stop energy extraction, export and infrastructure development. We wanna demonstrate what it’ll look like if fossil fuel corporations try to imperil the climate by moving fossil fuels down the Columbia.

Sign up and register to attend, ideally with a kayak or sail boat though we need you on the land as well!  Sign up to attend, spread the word on social media and start talking about regional carpools!

What: NW Says NO to fossil fuel export
Where: “Vancouver Landing, west of 100 Columbia St, Vancouver, WA (next to the Red Lion Hotel on the west side of the I5 bridge).

Coal is rearing its head again the Columbia Gorge. The new threat comes in the form of proposals to export coal from Wyoming to coal-fired power plants in China. The coal would be transported via uncovered rail cars through the Columbia Gorge. Many Columbia Gorge Communities in Oregon and Washington support a coal-free world, beginning at home, in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge, recognizing the importance of people determining what materials are allowable for transport through their communities and watersheds. This blog exists to communicate and advocate for the public interest in issues pertaining to coal transport in the Columbia River Gorge, providing an online outlet for honest discussion and information. To inform and unite local citizens about the damaging effects of coal transport through our communities. To endorse positive and considerate dialogue with the aim of mutual understanding among diverse parties. CLEAN AIR HEALTHY COMMUNITIES NO COAL EXPORTS STOP COAL IN ITS TRACKS
