Health, safety and jobs are all tied up in proposals to haul coal through Oregon for export to Asia.  Today,  the Portland city council added its voice to those asking the Corps of Engineers to do more in-depth studies.

The Portland Council Chamber was packed with the pros and cons of coal shipments.  Greg Peeden with the Alliance of Northwest Jobs and Exports is pragmatic, saying id coal shipyards are not built, jobs and business will be stifled, and there will still be a demand for coal energy.

 

But local business owner Sadie Clark sees it differently, saying shipping our energy sources to China will give Chinese businesses the unfair advantage of cheap, dirty power.

 

On a 3-0 vote the Council moved the resolution citing public environmental and safety concerns and asking for an in depth review before shipment permits are granted.
