Amelia Templeton
Exporting Coal

U.S. Coal companies are planning to build export facilities in the Pacific Northwest to ship coal to Asia. But the governors of Washington and Oregon are appealing to the White House to consider the impact on climate change before approving the projects. Amelia Templeton of the public radio collaborative EarthFix talks to Steve Curwood about this situation. Another viewpoint is from local business owners Richard and Tanya Burkholder. They explain why they favor of exporting coal as part of the Voices of Coal project.

India’s Coal Killing Thousands

With even more coal plants planned, a new study shows that pollution from coal-fired power plants is killing up to 115,000 Indians every year. Report editor Ashish Fernades joins Steve Curwood to discuss the state of coal in India.
