How can one person say "coal is stinky" there for no one in the world can use a cheap product



Washington state in legal battle with 6 states after it refuses to build coal export terminal



A lawsuit has pitted six landlocked states against Washington State over a simple question: Who owns the federal ports?WashingtonState is denying the states the permits required to build a large coal export terminal along the Columbia River. The states have sued and Washington filed a motion for dismissal.

But U.S. District Court Judge Robert Bryan rejected Washington State’s motion, setting the stage for a legal showdown over who really gets final say over which products flow through the nation’s sea ports.

Were talking about the Constitution and the rule of law,” said Montana Attorney General Tim Fox, “One state can’t discriminate against another state’s commodities in this way.”

Montana and Wyoming are leading plaintiffs and two of the largest coal-producing states in the country. The Powder River Basin contains 2.5 billion tons of recoverable coal and currently supplies 40 percent of the coal used in the United States. But as many states wean themselves off of electricity from burning coal, coal companies are looking to boost exports, primarily to Asia. But they have a major problem: there are no ports along the West Coast currently set up to load coal onto ships.

It is not about commodities it is about pollution and potential disaster. The reason we of the correct coast do not wish to handle coal is the ecological disaster any kind of mishap will cause to our states.

You are obviously ill informed & ignorant on the subject of coal, coal production, and coal pollution.

You are obviously ill informed & ignorant concerning states rights.

Washington state owes NO ONE a port. ALSO, Washington state is NOT, "one person." :206:

The internet holds great potential for the ignorant masses.

There is an education out there waiting for you, if you would only take the initiative.

No it is about hysterical reaction a theory similar to the Inquisition trial and condemnation of Galileo Galilei as a heretic.

It's interstate commerce ... They don't own the ports the federal government does and why do you hate poor people and cheap electricity?

And judging by your post you are one ignorant libtard who doesn't have a clue about the Constitution .

China needs the coal to build solar panels and wind turbines. You can not build either without coal.

obviously, you need to go educate your ignorant, minimal, cerebral capacity


Says the AGW cult member who can't even read the link in the OP, so are you going to continue to have another one of your temper tantrums or logically discuss the topic at hand?

Buying carbon credits we get it.

Carbon credits? No, you can not build solar without using coal in the process. You also can nit build a wind turbine without coal. Carbon credits have nothing to do with it. It is kind of obvious that Washington state is being a hypocrite. You do know that you mustv ncrease the use of coal to build the largest things in the world, right?

Sigh, I live in the state with this kook who is the Governor, here in his own words:

But Governor Jay Inslee makes no secret of his disdain for coal. In his 2007 book, “Apollo’s Fire: Igniting America’s Clean Energy Economy,” Inslee wrote, “coal is killing us. If we fail to restrain growth of CO2 emissions all six billion of us on this little spaceship are at risk.”

and,

"He also wrote that coal and cars are in a race to be the greatest danger to our climate. And at a recent news conference in which he announced Washington state would file its 32nd lawsuit against the Trump Administration over the dismantling of president Obama’s Clean Power Plan, Inslee said: “We’re breathing smoke from Mississippi, we’re breathing smoke from the rest of the United States. We have an interest in reducing coal smoke from all over the United States.”

He is a KOOK!

There is NO evidence that additional CO2 is a danger to the plants.

I think their impact statements will be a significant factor in the lawsuit:

"The Washington Ecology Department cited a slight increase in cancer risk to Longview residents due to increased diesel emissions from additional train traffic, significant vehicle traffic delays, noise, the destruction of 24 acres of wetlands and a 25 percent increase in ship traffic on the Columbia River. An Ecology spokesman denies rejecting the coal terminal because of any bias against coal or the environmental impacts caused by burning the coal in Asia.

“It is insulting to all Washington residents that proponents of this facility have chosen to minimize and ridicule the impact diesel emissions from the largest operation of the largest coal export facility in North America would have had on the people of Cowlitz County,” said Ecology’s spokesman Dave Bennett."

That will be interesting how THAT plays out in court.

Now Bear, you dumb fuck, if they want cheap electricity, they will go with solar and wind. Still declining in cost while the fossil fuels are increasing in cost.

A quarter of the mercury in our air in Oregon comes from China. Why should we sell them coal to increase that amount?

How you 'Conservatives' treasure your willful ignorance. The CO2 from any plant affects the CO2 level worldwide.
