Stop King Coal’s Dirty Energy Exports for Profit.

Lively Protest! Speakers! Street Theater!

Within the past few months, the western United States has become the center of attention for coal companies seeking to export coal to Asia. Because of their strategic location as a transport hub from Wyoming and Montana to China and other overseas markets, King Coal is attempting to buy up ports along the Pacific Northwest Coast for coal export.

With it’s North American headquarters in Salt Lake City, Ambre Energy is leading coal export expansion in the northwest United States. They are building a coal export terminal on the Columbia River in Longview, Washington to ship coal mined in Wyoming and Montana to overseas markets.

Coal is leading source of greenhouse gas emissions and public health issues, like asthma and cancer, as well as adversely effecting wilderness and communities through devastating extraction practices. It’s time to replace dirty coal with more sustainable clean energy solutions.
