    we're working hard to stop proposed coal ports on the Pacific, and why activists a year ago on 350.org's Connect the Dots days blocked the tracks in British Columbia. By all means help here too.

      and the first thing Democratic Gov. John Kitzhaber, did after he was elected is declare OR is open for business. They are shipping coal down the Columbia to send to China. There is a big brouhaha going on about the plans to ship coal by rail to the ports some owned by Goldman Sachs.

      This is insane as where the tar sands or coal are processed and burned it makes no difference to mother nature. Democrat's lawmakers and executives may not be in denial but they sure as hell feel that it's worth destroying the planet for their freaking inevitable free market screw to both people and the planet.
