Climate action in Montana
The emerging clean-energy economy is a real opportunity for Montana to be a leader in building and expanding companies, creating new and sustainable jobs that will enable our children to have good paying jobs right here at home, and keeping energy affordable and reliable. Wind, solar, biofuels, “smart grids,” energy efficiency, and other clean-energy technologies and sectors are poised for explosive growth.

Power Past Coal
Coal companies are trying to push 150 million tons of coal, on rail through Montana, Idaho, Washington and Oregon to be loaded onto ships out of ports in the Northwest and shipped to Asia to burn.
Shipping up to 150 million tons of coal a year through our communities would release toxic coal dust and diesel exhaust along the
rail lines, clog our railroads, ports, and roads, risk our families’
health, pollute our air and water, and continue to stoke the climate
For more information on how you can help stop coal exports, contact Beth Doglio, 360.352.1763 x29, or visit PowerPastCoal.org.
