The Government of Alberta, Canada does not show you this on their nice, nice tar sands site. They show flowers, pristine forest, wildlife. They are deceptive and without shame. Lot of our air and water comes from this area not to mention the devastation caused by wasteful logging for pulp paper. Keystone XL Pipeline is bad. There is a current glut of oil. This oil will be exported, not used in the U.S.
Trains deliver coal from mines in the Powder River Basin and Canada to an unloading facility at a coal terminal at Roberts Bank, B.C., just north of the U.S. border. Six terminals are proposed in Oregon and Washington for coal shipments to Asia. Coal-filled trains headed to some of those proposed terminals would pass through Clark County.
