Sightline Institute research update and video of Grays Harbor DEIS protest

New research from Sightline Institute 

Hi there Northwest fossil fuel fighters, 

It’s been a while since I’ve posted an update on Sightline’s research, and we’ve published a few gems recently that I suspect many of you will enjoy.

First, a pair of post-election analyses, one on the influence of coal money in Whatcom County and the other on the growing importance of elected port officials: 

Next, a pair of examinations of the deteriorating conditions for would-be coal exporters:

    Then, a second set of infographics that distill key findings from research reports on the risk of oil in Grays Harbor:

    Finally, for those tired of reading, a 45-minute radio segment on the latest developments in the Northwest:

    Happy Tuesday!
