Environmentalists target local ports for unprecedented regulation

By Jeff Kropf, Oregon Export Watch
and Jason Williams Taxpayer Association of Oregon

The Pacific Northwest is proposing to build three port facilities to export coal and other commodities. These projects will bring tens of millions of jobs to our region and employ thousands of people. Unfortunately, national anti-coal campaigns funded by climate change activists are trying to stop this investment. Governors Kitzhaber and Inslee are propping up President Obama’s war on coal by insisting that the projects clear unprecedented regulatory hurdles. Climate change activists will be busing people in from all over the Pacific Northwest for a hearing on the Longview export facility, scheduled for Wednesday October 9th at 5pm at the Clark County Fairgrounds in Ridgefield, Washington.

The Millennium Terminal has been under review for 19 months already. To protect our economy, the state must commit to advancing trade investments and finalizing the review of these projects in a timely manner.  The type of environmentalist over-regulation that destroyed Oregon’s timber industry is now being tried on Oregon’s port industry to stop coal and other natural resources.

If you would like to attend this hearing and express your support for these projects, you can RSVP here.

    The NW is so popular for new bad ideas

      You mean like a reliance on coal?

  • a dam hyrdo power supporter

    Encountered a green ‘informationalist’ outside an Oregon City supermarket condemning coal fuel energy, CO2 emissions, etc – and, ‘spinning’ her charm with a [sic], plastic wind turbine model atop a table replete with glossy propaganda for take out.

    Her ‘fiendly’ countenance turned, d’oh…when I stated nonsupport for en-massed invading turbines, IMO, that challenge clear-cut forest sections for ugliness. ;-(

    As for fossil fuel, not so thrilled with coal export to China, yet I’m not cheerful with CO2 trunk monkeys having their way with the PGE Boardman (clean burning) coal plant supplementing Columbia basin hydro power. Really that’s no Trojan plant per se.

    Well, we agreed to disagree, yet as I turned away from this zealot-tress I felt of wave-of-energy aback, akin to from the if-looks-could-kill deportment.

      There is no such thing as a “clean burning” coal plant.

      At least, not on this planet.

        Nor are ‘things’ ranging from tobacco smoking to volcanoes.

        • DavidAppell

          Fossil fuels burned by man emit 100-200 times more CO2 than do volcanoes:

            Bull puckers! Go warp your silly self in your constantly burgeoning ego. Better yet, consider a trip down a Kilauea lava tube, rube!

          • DavidAppell

            “Bull puckers!” is always an intelligent response to scholarly studies. I can’t see why it’s not used more often….

            DA ‘peering michael moorelike every daze – an’ bearing anal knowsis that tends to flat-line so causing onlookers to excogitate as to why your pyroclasm hasn’t vaporized any sagacity you have left.

          • DavidAppell

            I have no idea what your verbiage is supposed to mean, but it doesn’t look like a counter to observed scientific facts.

          • wether

            I think that its verbiage should be interpreted as: “I am afraid to communicate with other human beings. Please notice me.”

          • guest

            Hey, wether you ilk it or not, DA is so full of pyroclastic flows…even Harry Truman now wherever the hell is, recognizes the blight.

  • DavidAppell

    These projects will bring tens of millions of jobs to our region…

    What???
    Of course, it will not do any such thing.

    • Ciao

      Millions and/or billions, d’oh what the shmuck you smirk’n cluck?
