Coal Train Hearing

Why: Two thousand residents in Bellingham, another thousand in Mount Vernon—across the state, people are turning out in unexpectedly large, angry herds to protest plans to build the nation’s largest coal export terminal outside of Bellingham. If the terminal is approved, up to 18 mile-long coal trains a day carrying an estimated 48 million tons of coal would start snaking their way through our waterfront on the way to the northern port. Now it’s your turn to testify on the biggest political showdown in Washington State. (Washington State Convention Center, 800 Convention Pl, Ballroom 6F, 4–7 pm, free)
