Submission Text
Coal and all sources of fossil fuels have long been proven to be unsafe health hazards to human and all forms of life. Extraction of these fossil fuels is not only destructive to the earth we share, but puts the safety of many in jeopardy in addition to all other irreparably negative impacts, in the event of a derailment or spill. It's a matter of when this happens. Is the fossil fuel industry willing to take full accountability for cleanup costs for toxic spills and the millions of dollars in infastructural damage? This is far too high a price to pay so that so few from outside our beautiful region can be so wealthy at the expense of everyone and everything else. End the exports of fossil fuels through Washington State! The people have spoken, and future generations can't wait any longer in slowing global warming's extreme climate changes.
