King Coal is losing North America. Successful fights against coal fired power plants have forced them to change their business strategies or die. Their new plan is to export coal mined from the Powder River Basin in Wyoming and Montana to overseas markets in East Asia. In China and India, coal will devastate public health and climate with polluting greenhouse gas emissions the same way it does in the United States.
Coal companies like Arch Coal and Peabody Energy have pushed to build coal export terminals in the Pacific Northwest states of Oregon and Washington.
Groups throughout Oregon, Washington, Montana and Wyoming have been fighting coal exports in regulatory hearings, court rooms, boardrooms and legislative halls, but more is needed!
Join the Coal Exports Action from August 10-20 in Helena Montana.
Rising Tide North America has joined a diverse coalition of students, environmentalists, ranchers, frontline communities and ordinary people to stand together in Helena to fight back against Big Coal.
While industry lobbyists will be pushing the Montana Land Board in August to open up more coal reserves, 1,000 people will be in the streets of Helena from August 10-20 putting their bodies on the line and making their voices heard.
It’s time to end coal once and for all and we need you to make it happen.
Please join us for the Coal Exports Action.
Thanks for all you do.
Solidarity, Rising Tide North America
