Next week, Sightline’s Eric de Place will discuss the unprecedented influx of coal, oil, and gas export schemes in the Northwest. We at Sightline have come to call our region the Thin Green Line, due to the Northwest’s unique geographic position standing between inland US fossil fuel deposits and large Asian markets. In short, Northwest communities have the ability to say no to dirty energy and will play an outsize role in determining the planet’s climate future. Mark your calendars, bring a friend, and join Eric as he explains the costs and consequences of dirty energy exports in the Northwest.
