Environmental advocates scored a win Wednesday in the battle over coal terminals in the Northwest. The government agencies in charge of investigating the impact of a proposed Washington coal terminal will look into the impact of the terminal on climate change. They will also look beyond the Gateway Pacific Terminal itself to study the impact of the entire corridor from the Powder River Basin in Wyoming where the coal is extracted to Cherry Point where it will be shipped to Asia. This announcement by the Washington Department of Ecology stands in contrast to an earlier decision by their partner in the project, the Army Corps of Engineers. The Corps announced in June it would not look into the impact of climate change for its part of the environmental assessment. This raises questions of which report will carry the most weight when they are finalized in a few years. We'll also hear about how climate change could affect a species that lives in the Olympics called the Cascades frog.
