  •  WA has only one coal-fired power plant (5+ / 0-)

    Here's a story from KOMO: Deal shuts down state's last coal-fired power plant (one boiler will shut down by 2020, the other by 2025).

    Apart from this one plant, which is shutting down, Washington doesn't even burn coal for electricity. It's shameful that we'd be digging coal in Montana, Wyoming, and elsewhere, putting it on trains to Washington, loading up ships, and sending it to China. Imagine all the carbon in the air from the trains, ships, and Chinese power plants.

    But the angle said to them, "Do not be Alfred. A sailor has been born to you"
