It was a great community gathering for Bill McKibbon's visit to Bellingham. We are faced with a devastating future as corporate profiteers propose using our area as a conduit for our coal, barbarically extracted from public lands and shipped to China to be released into Earth's atmosphere heavily contributing to climate change and putting all life on Earth at risk. Coal as a source of energy production should go the way of whale oil. I hope we will be able to stop this irresponsible squandering of our descendant's future.
