Watch New Coal Export Film

Compelling three-minute film describes plans to export dirty U.S. coal to Asia. Local voices from Longview, Bellingham, Hood River, and Portland share how coal trains and terminals will harm their communities. The film captures the filth of coal and the shine of those who know we can do better.

Riverkeeper wins. Together with allies, we achieved a major victory against the Bradwood Landing LNG terminal and pipeline– a proposal similar to coal export.  We can win again with your support. 

The Daily News in Longview stated:

“Riverkeeper has become a powerful force— the kind of advocate the Columbia needs at a time when government regulators are underfunded and understaffed, according to the group’s supporters.”

“Riverkeeper, opponents admit, is strikingly well-organized, adept at maneuvering through the nation’s legal and regulatory structure and surprisingly successful at gaining the trust of public officials.”
