NE Portland Coal Hard Truth Forum

October 2, 2012 - October 2, 2012
Portland, Oregon

What are the risks if the largest coal companies in the world transform the Northwest into a dirty energy corridor to supply US coal to Asian markets? Coal companies propose to bring over 150 million tons of coal annually through the Columbia River Gorge to ports in Bellingham, Longview, St. Helens, Boardman, and Coos Bay.

When: Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012, 7:00 - 8:30 PM

Where: Rose City Park United Methodist Church (5830 NE Alameda Street in Portland)

Learn more about protecting the Northwest from becoming a dirty coal exporting region. Portland could see coal trains along our rail lines and coal barges in the Columbia River. Learn about how proposed dirty coal export projects would dramatically affect our community's health, climate, and economy, and how you can help prevent it from happening.

Speakers include:

· Dr. Susan Katz, Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility
