Join our policy director Eric de Place at the downtown Everett Library, to discuss transport risks of coal and crude oil through Snohomish County and other cities in the Northwest.
In response to the increasing amount of public interest in oil transport issues, the community group Snohomish County Train Watch is hosting a series of monthly strategy meetings to address the future of fossil fuel transport projects in the Pacific Northwest. Eric will talk about the risks of fossil fuel transport, including carbon emissions, railway congestion, coal dust, water pollution, and oil train safety. During the second half of the meeting, the group will participate in a strategy session focusing on future activities to avert dangers and to stand up against big energy companies.

Stop the track modifications by making coal and oil pay full costs in advance of salmon mitigation, nearshore mitigation, landslide mitigation, ferry relocation/delay mitigation, shoreline park mitigation etc. Make folks aware that US Govt Powder River publicly owned coal is violating our own carbon commitments to reduce CO2.
