Coal-Free in Cowlitz County: Join us at a public forumThursday, Aug. 25
The Fairgrounds (1900 7th Avenue, Longview)
Next Thursday, the County Commissioners and the Cowlitz League of Women Voters will hold a public hearing to gauge public opinion on coal in our community. We need to fill the hearing to send a strong message that dirty coal isn't in our future.
Cowlitz County residents have a unique opportunity to voice their opposition to Millennium Bulk Logistics' proposed coal terminal in Longview. Coal will do real damage to our communities. Black coal dust will pollute our air and water, cancer-causing pollution will drift back to our skies, and increased train traffic will snarl our roads with gridlock.
