I am shocked that negotiations continue when the legal challenge revealed the deceptive practises of this horrible project. One of the backers, Peabody, filed bankruptcy. The annual exports would contribute the climate destruction equivalent of 11 billion more cars on the road. They continue to lie to locals about jobs and safety. What is this "sealant" they want to spray on the trains of coal dust? Sounds like the toxic chemical they sprayed in the Gulf which made the oil spill SINK and become worse. Or the toxins they are spraying us with now for the gypsy moth.*
The Lummi Nation and the Army Corps of Engineers managed to stop the Cherry Point terminal.
This is the death knell for dirty energy. Shame on us for considering exporting such disasters on unsuspecting nations, which, by the way the Millennium Bulk Terminal website, with Bill Gates, claims is humanitarian work. Disgraceful. WA needs to be known as a catalyst to clean the world, offer alternatives and prepare the children for climate change.
Why would we continue to allow the rape of mother earth?
*Citizens of Charleston, West Virginia got a grim reminder of these unfortunate circumstances when an untested chemical (4-methylcyclohexanemethanol) used to “wash” raw coal to remove impurities spilled into their water supply.
