Dear friends and neighbors:

Please join us for a screening of Dirty Coal, the Toxic Addiction on Thursday, Nov. 8 at 6:30PM at Holy Cross Lutheran Church, 4315 129th Pl. SE, Bellevue, WA 98006.

Dirty Coal: The Toxic Addiction exposes the historic greed for dirty coal profits and the worldwide addiction to burning coal for electricity. Dirty coal powered the industrial revolution and now even powers the social networking phenomenon of Facebook. The film features coal ash disasters; Daryl Hannah’s famous arrest of protesting mountaintop removal of coal; and how the U.S. is becoming a colonial exporter of millions of tons of coal to fuel China’s growing economy. The film highlights the dynamic student movement trying to close coal plants on 60 U.S. college campuses.


You are probably aware that hearings are underway to determine what will be “in scope” for the largest coal exporting plant in the U.S. proposed about 10 miles north of Bellingham.

This movie will provide us information about coal as a power source in the 21st century.

There are hearings in Seattle the following week to discuss whether we, as a community, will get to have a say about the coal being transported in our own backyards.
Hope to see you!

Please RSVP to Janet Farness

  1. FLASH! Jessie Dye from Earth Ministry will be with us this evening. She helped to negotiate the planned closure in 2030 of the last coal plant in Washington in Centralia. She is an extremely knowledgeable resource and committed to ensuring that the scoping of this project includes people and planet, not just profit.
