October 29th in Vancouver was a very important scoping hearing on the Vancouver Oil Terminal! (Oil is a fossil fuel, too.)
There is news about that very successful hearing that you can look at here.
Australian company Ambre Energy wants to export 44 million tons of coal through Longview, which could bring 16 coal trains a day through the Columbia River Gorge , Portland, and Southwest Washington. Between dangerous coal dust, diesel and carbon pollution, and mile and a half long trains cutting through our neighborhoods – this is bad news. We need your help to stop Big Coal from moving forward with this dirty and dangerous proposal. Attending the upcoming hearing on October 9th is the best way to do that.
It is believed that Ambre Energy has been unable to submit supporting information needed for a planned Nov 1, 2013 decision by the Oregon Land Board on the Morrow Pacific Coal Terminal permit requirements, and will therefore accept a delay on the decision until approximately April 1, 2014. This will provide an extra opportunity for us to convince the Oregon Land Board that there can not be a convincing argument made that this project will not terribly damage Oregon lands.
