Despite the general recognition that it is the worst generator of GreenHouse Gas Emissions, coal is making a comeback on a worldwide basis.
In several of our blogs we addressed the subject of exports of North American coal to the Pacific Rim. We noted that the Vancouver Port Authority wishes to grab its share. Apparently the Port’s coal facilities are currently working to capacity, which means the Authority must make capital expenditures to expand terminals etc. to handle the large volume of future exports. The Vancouver organization, Voters Taking Action on Climate Change (VTACC) is opposing expansion for this purpose, and For Our Grandchildren (4RG) has supported their opposition.
