photography

These albums are thanks to the talented volunteer time of many people on the ground documenting the impacts from coal mining, transport, export and burning and the powerful groundswell in the Northwest against exporting a 19th Century fossil fuel.

Paul Anderson, one of the featured photographers also has many more pictures at his Coal and the American West portfolio site.

Our deep thanks to all the great photos from on the ground.  Keep them coming and contact Kimberly (at) climatesolutions.org if you have photos to “donate” (with credit given, of course!) to this cause.
