EarthFix a collaboration on environmental topics of Northwest public radio and television held a panel discussion on February 13, 2013 at Seattle’s Town Hall on the topic of Coal Exports. A respectful and interested crowd of 250 heard from representatives of the Lummi Indian Nation, Climate Solutions, SSA Marine, the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers & Trainmen, and a University of Washington law professor. A video of the event can be watched at their site along with a preview of a documentary “Coal Train” they plan to release in June of this year. Ashley Aheren of KUOW moderated the event.
