Futurewise Takes a Stand Against Coal Terminal

Futurewise, a great memebr charity working on smart, sustainable growth in Washington, has taken up action in Whatcom County to assess the impact of the coal terminal. Their work should help give a better picture of all the risks involved.

Futurewise -Today Futurewise staff, with the support of its board, filed a comment letter to Whatcom County, the state Department of Ecology, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to recommend that a programmatic Environment Impact Statement (EIS) be prepared to assess the individual and cumulative impacts of all of the potential coal ports in Washington and Oregon and to identify the mitigation necessary to maintain the region’s built and natural environments, human health, and our state’s economy.
