We have a critical opportunity to stop coal export. A coal export terminal in Longview threatens the health, public safety, and economic vitality of our communities. The Environmental Impact Statement must consider a broad scope of impacts. Add your voice to the thousands of others saying “NO” to coal export. We can do better.
Join thousands of Oregonians opposing coal export to keep this important issue at the top of Governor Kitzhaber’s radar!
We need Governor Kitzhaber to take a firm stand and protect Oregon from dirty coal export. Let him know that you oppose Big Coal transforming Oregon into a dirty coal chute for Asian power plants. Coal is toxic. It pollutes our air and water, harms our health, snarls our traffic, and worsens the climate crisis. Post the above image to Governor Kitzhaber’s Facebook page and give him a call (503-378-4582) to remind him about the negative impacts of coal export.
On October 22 2013, Oregon’s Department of State Lands granted Ambre Energy’s Morrow Pacific coal export project its SIXTH permit extension. Ambre’s coal export project does not meet Oregon’s environmental standards and Governor Kitzhaber should direct the Department of State Lands to deny this permit. Tell him to deny Ambre’s permit today!
Make this the most effective week of action against coal export yet! Give Governor Kitzhaber a call (503-378-4582) today and tell him you oppose coal export. Follow it up by making your voice visible to the public by posting on his Facebook page.
