Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Environmental Lawyer, Speaking At Portland Anti-Coal Rally

Posted: Updated:

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Coal export opponents are holding a noon rally Monday at Pioneer Courthouse Square in Portland, led by environmental lawyer Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

Columbia Riverkeeper, the Sierra Club, Climate Solutions and Greenpeace are sponsoring the rally and fighting a half-dozen proposals to ship coal from Montana and Wyoming to Asia through Northwest ports.

The opponents warn of local problems from coal dust and long coal trains. They also say expanding Asian access to American coal would be bad for the world environment.
