Ignore promises of jobs for coal, crude oil exports
Widespread damage will result
Proponents of inundating Washington with coal and crude-oil exports are currently spending tens of millions of dollars on a sophisticated public-relations offensive, promising jobs and environmental protection.
Please take that message with a grain of salt. Realize it was crafted by a skilled advertising agency to manipulate you into believing there may be some benefit to welcoming massive amounts of toxic cargo into our communities and waterways.
There is not.
Their single goal is to ease your conscious into ignoring the widespread damage these proposals will inflict, if approved and built, on Washington.
