Last week, I discussed the thousands of people who are showing up to statewide public meetings to comment on and protest building the nation's largest coal export terminal outside of Bellingham. It makes me wonder what Spokane's hearing on December 4th will look like?
This awesome five-minute video might give us a hint. It's about the huge turnout in Bellingham, called Divided by Coal from How Loud Media. One of the best pro-coal terminal comments I've heard yet on camera: "Instead of calling it coal, what if we called it ballet shoes? How would people feel about exporting ballet shoes? It's a legal commodity [and] coal's a legal commodity."
Once again, you can voice your opinion HERE. State and federal agencies are seeking public comment on the proposed terminal through January 21, 2013.
