Coal: The Big Picture

Over the past year, we’ve heard a lot from different voices in the debate over coal terminals in the Northwest. A new EarthFix TV documentary airing on OPB TV takes a look at the big picture. Reporters Ashley Ahearn and Katie Campbell traveled from Gillette, WY to Bellingham, WA to examine how the debate over coal terminals is playing out in points along the way.

With plans abandoned for several proposed terminals and the first public hearings set for the Port of Morrow terminal, we’ll check in on the state of coal in the Northwest.

How would coal terminals in the Northwest affect you?
