Perhaps surprised by the numbers of comments we sent, the proponents of the Cherry Point coal terminal project are beginning a big push back campaign. You can already see it in media ads and the January "poll" they claim shows a majority of Washingtonians support the coal terminal. We believe this may have been what is called a "push poll" - that is a technique usually used to influence or alter the view of respondents under the guise of conducting a genuine poll. Those conducting a "push poll" give false, incomplete, or misleading information to those being "polled."
So, we can push back by taking action. Some of you may have seen an e-mail sent out by Robin a few days ago. I am pasting it in here so if you did not see it or did not already take action, you can do so. Let's let Governor Inslee know where we stand on coal exports in Washington! Click here to take action.
