Opposition from CREDO members has helped sink the coal-export terminal proposed for the port of Coos Bay in Oregon. The terminal was a bad idea for Oregon and the planet. It would have supercharged global warming by shipping up to 11 million tons of coal a year to be burned in Asia. When local public opposition pushed two investors out of the project, more than 2,000 CREDO activists in Los Angeles asked L.A.-based terminal operator Metro Ports, the sole remaining investor, to pull their support as well. And Metro Ports listened. In April the company ended its involvement in the terminal, effectively killing the proposed coal-export terminal.
