Kids speak to Governor Kitzhaber about coal exports. this is so heartwarming!!!
Here are 6 great reasons why Oregon shouldn't allow the transport and export of coal.
Governor Kitzhaber's Department of State Lands (DSL) has a big decision to make on coal export and they have until April 30 to make it. Governor Kitzhaber recently allowed the Dept. of Environmental Quality to issue three permits to Ambre Energy’s Morrow Pacific coal export terminal and we do not want DSL to follow suit.
We need the Governor to act now.
We need a real commitment to keep dirty coal out of Oregon. Call Governor Kitzhaber’s citizen representative office TODAY and urge him to stop coal exports: (503) 378-4582.
News update: glass half empty, glass half full...DEQ requires 401 water certification before Ambre energy can proceed, but issues 3 permits Click here to learn more.

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.
