Corporate giants like Arch Coal are attempting to profit by exporting Montana coal to China and other overseas markets. Coal trains traveling to the West Coast pass through towns including Billings, Livingston, Bozeman, Helena, and Missoula. Each of these trains is a source of toxic coal dust and diesel fumes that threaten the health of our families and communities.
Coal companies stand to make millions from coal export schemes, while Montana gets stuck with the pollution. It’s time to say no to coal exports and invest in clean, renewable energy that can power our economy while safeguarding the environment.
