Oregon Joins In War On Coal Blocks Export Of Coal

In the war on coal the EPA has just gained another ally
Oregon’s Department of State Lands a coal dock proposal chose to deny
Concerns over salmon, coal dust, spills in to the Columbia were reasons to justify
Given the benefits to the economy, Ambre Energy believes political considerations underlie
The company will appeal and is looking for the Army Corp of Engineers to the dock permit
If they do I am sure the EPA will have a regulatory hernia, a massive temper fit
18 billion dollars of coal were exported from the U.S. to meet developing countries demand
More dollars and jobs would be created the loss of which our fragile economy should not have to withstand
Oregon is a beautiful state but its lumber industry is gone and its unemployment rate is at 6.9 percent
The DSL should reconsider and given the benefits give its assent
