Army Corps of Engineers has narrow scope for coal review

Carbon emissions must be considered My faith in The Seattle Times’ editorial balance has been boosted with Lance Dickie’s column on the Army Corps of Engineer’s review of the proposed coal export and mile-long trains through Western Washington. [“Corps should broaden coal review,” Opinion, June 21.] Disruption of our cities and coal dust littered along side…
