Take Action!Big Coal has plans to ship millions of tons of dirty coal through Pacific Northwest ports to Asia -- spewing toxic coal dust, putting our safety at risk, clogging our railroads and ports, and stoking the climate crisis all along the way.

If Big Coal gets its way, Oregon could see dozens of coal trains passing through North Portland, Hood River, The Dalles, and other communities on a daily basis. Coal barges would clog up the Columbia Gorge and there could be football fields of coal at Columbia River ports. 

With our support, Gov. Kitzhaber can save Oregonians from Big Coal's toxic export plans.

Take a Stand Against Coal Exports

Dear Gov. Kitzhaber,

Thank you for your leadership in positioning Oregon at the forefront of building the Northwest's clean energy future. Unfortunately, our progress could be undermined by Big Coal's plans to ship millions of tons of coal through the Pacific Northwest to Asia--polluting our air and water with toxic coal pollution, putting our communities' safety at risk, clogging our railroads and the Columbia River, and recklessly stoking the climate crisis all the way.

I strongly oppose exporting coal and urge you to apply your leadership to prevent Oregon from facilitating any coal export infrastructure or transportation in our state. Help Oregon lead the way in creating a truly Coal-Free Northwest.
