Less than a year after Paducah residents defeated a similar proposal, Southern Coal is trying again to exploit the Ohio River to export massive amounts of dirty coal out-of-state and overseas. Their new trick — moving the proposed site a short distance down the river in an attempt to avoid zoning hurdles and thwart the will of the people.
A new report shows the Ohio River leads the nation in toxic discharges and this terminal threatens to make that worse — impacting the health of local communities, our air, and our waterways. We won an amazing victory last year when hundreds of residents spoke out in opposition to coal exports, leading to a rejection of the rezoning proposal tied to the project. Now we need your help again.
