Discussion but no action on crude by rail at Aberdeen Council meeting
via KBKW radio
Any plans to streamline crude oil exports through Grays Harbor are beginning to come off the rails, at a slow and safe speed.The Aberdeen city council last night discussed the potential impacts of crude oil exports, but they did not take any action to make their voices heard in time for the first stage of two projects being developed in Hoquiam.
Aberdeen City Council continue crude by rail discussion
The discussion on crude by rail continued last night at the Aberdeen City Council Meeting.
With a public comment period at the end of the meeting that lasted nearly an hour with almost every speaker voicing their concerns about crude by rail many points were brought up and Aberdeen citizen Michael Dickerson said that something needs to be done.
Dickerson said, “Someone has to wake up the railroad that we are concerned. I can’t do it. The people here can’t do it. Only this council can do it, and I believe it’s your moral responsibility to try and solve this problem any way that you can solve it.
Secretary Moniz is joining a webchat on Monday and he wants
your questions. We need your help to send a message that he’s
wrong on crude oil exports. We can't lift the export ban if we're
serious about addressing climate change.
