Coast Not Coal
Two newly-proposed coal export terminals along the Mississippi River in southeast Louisiana threaten crucial coastal restoration plans and neighboring communities.
Coal-carrying barges dump coal in the river. Coal export terminals release clouds of coal dust that cover homes, boats, cars, and coastal wetlands with black soot. And these proposed coal terminals will interfere with the restoration of Barataria marshes - central to restoring Louisiana's coastal lines of defense. We can stop it by sending a strong message to the Army Corps to protect our coast and restoration projects from a unnecessary, dirty coal export terminals.
Send a note to Colonel Hansen at the Army Corps of Engineers asking him to prioritize coast and a healthy Gulf economy over dirty coal export terminals.
