Protect Seattle's Waterfront from Dangerous Coal Exports!
We all love Seattle's waterfront because of its great restaurants, entertainment, art and culture -- but mostly for views of our beautiful Puget Sound. It is part of why we choose to live here.
But imagine up to 18 coal trains, each a mile and a half long, rumbling through the waterfront daily -- disrupting this vital economic tourist engine, polluting our water with toxic coal dust and making already-congested traffic worse.
That is what we will face if coal companies' proposed 50-million-ton coal export terminal in Whatcom County gets built.
It doesn't have to be this way.
Join Mayor McGinn and Seattle waterfront businesses at a Seattle Waterfront Business Appreciation event and protect Seattle's waterfront from dirty coal exports!
