"Could have gone to work at Handford a couple of mo ago and probably would have if it werent for the articles lately here on Enenews. The pay is great and very tempting, but not worth dieing for a decade or two from now. I also have concerns of tracking that crap back home to my children."

China's Coal Burning will Billow with Coal from US, Burned in China and Drift Back to US , Friday, Sept. 27, 2013

If you want US to have fresh clear and clean air, as a legacy for all future generations, then we must stop burning coal, and stop coal companies who want to strip our country of coal, send it to China, and let the pollution return to US via the jet stream.

"China continues to be the biggest emitter of greenhouse gases, according to the World Resources Institute. It's clear to me how: where one coal power plant stops, another begins. A thick brown air blows and for a moment the trees look like nature's very own protestors, shaking their fists at the sky (the human variety are strictly banned...)

Coal Trains Would Block Spokane Traffic for Hours a Day. Attend Hearing on Wednesday, September 25, 5 pm at Spokane Convention Center

Coal company trains bound to China through Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Washington, and Oregon will leave trails of coal dust, increase noise echoing in the Spokane River Valley and Hills, increase respiratory diseases, cause cancer, and tie up OUR railroad crossings for hours more per day.
Here's a chart:

"If fossil fuel companies succeed in shipping the volumes of fuel they have planned, they will—by sheer physical necessity—disrupt vehicle and rail traffic all along the rail route. In the first installment in this series we examined street closures in northern Idaho. In this chapter, we visit Spokane County, Washington."

It's so important!"
"Please come to the Spokane hearing!"

Comment Period is OPEN NOW, Give Your Opinion about Coal Trains in the Pacific Northwest

"This poll confirms what has remained consistent throughout the debate about coal exports: the more people learn about the issue, the more they are opposed” said Beth Doglio, co-director of the Power Past Coal coalition, an ever growing alliance of health, environmental, clean-energy, faith and community groups and businesses working to stop coal export off the West Coast. “It’s like an onion: the more layers you peel back the more you realize what a stinky deal this would be for our communities, economy and planet.”

Fukushima Radiation Keeps on Giving Radiaiton to the World: Protect Our Earth and Kids

Ignoring deadly radiation is not an option. The radiation is polluting the oceans, our air, our water, our earth, and US. Press our public servants to assist Japan in containing and capping this disaster now.

"Radiation levels 18 times higher than previously reported have been found near a water storage tank at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, causing fresh concern about the safety of the wrecked facility. The plant's operator, Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco), said radiation near the bottom of the tank measured 1,800 millisieverts an hour – high enough to kill an exposed person in four hours."
