Stop the Northwest from Becoming a Conduit for Dangerous Coal Exports

About the Petition

The exportation of coal has been an issue discussed by people from all over, for years. This activity is not only harmful to the general public, but it threatens our ecosystems and physical environments. And not to mention, these projects could lead to people in the region literally breathing coal dust! This is wrong!

Given the devastating impacts to air, water, climate and human health, an Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared for each of these individual projects immediately.

Also, the federal agencies involved must issue an environmental review before the planning for these projects goes any further. This review should look into impacts of coal dust, railroad and port congestion, traffic, water and air pollution, and the overall effects this could have on climate change. These projected coal export terminals will affect every living thing in the area, and the Army Corps of Engineers needs to realize the true harm that they could cause.
