Hood River Beyond Coal Campaign Kickoff Meeting

As you read this, the Columbia Gorge and the Northwest are at an energy crossroads. Coal companies are threatening to export millions of tons of coal from a port in the Northwest all the way to Asia, stoking climate change and countering clean energy progress in the Northwest. Locally, coal exports could bring 26 mile-long coal trains through the Gorge every day, spewing toxic coal dust into the air and water, contributing to asthma and respiratory diseases, choking our railroads and degrading our property values.

The good news is that we have solutions. That’s why here in the Gorge we are launching a campaign to provide the political backing for decision-makers in Oregon and Washington to stand up to coal companies, asking them to oppose coal exports in the Northwest. If we act now, we can seize this unique opportunity to stop coal exports and prevent massive amounts of coal trains and coal dust from polluting the Columbia Gorge, our air, our water and our lungs.

So please join us for an action-packed kickoff meeting on Thursday Sept 29th at 7:00pm at the Springhouse Cellar Winery (near 1st and Cascade in downtown Hood River, near the railroad tracks).
