Coal is the dirtiest fossil fuel, by far. New regulations and cleaner, cheaper energy alternatives have led to a dramatic drop in coal fired energy in the United States. Washington and Oregonhave recently reached agreements to shut down our only coal-fired power plants. But, the coal companies and their allies have other plans. They want to take the coal that is no longer needed here and send it on trains to new Northwest ports where it can be loaded on ships to be burned in Asia.

Come hear Beth Doglio, Campaign Director for Climate Solutions coalition and speakers from health and faith communities to discuss the coal terminal proposals, the numerous and serious impacts this will have on communities, and what you can do to help.

Our Panelists:

Ginny Wolff, Skagit County, WA – Dr. Wolff is a retired family physician, Skagit resident, and working with over 185 “Whatcom Docs” to educate citizens about the adverse health impacts of potential coal export projects.
Rev. Patton, Longview, WA--The Rev. Kathleen Patton is Rector of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Longview, WA, where she resides. Mother Patton graduated from the Church Divinity School of the Pacific in 1990, and has served as priest in the Episcopal Dioceses of California, Northern California, and Olympia.
