Environmental advocate Beth Doglio of Olympia is scheduled to speak Tuesday about the fight against Northwest coal exports during the regular monthly meeting of the Democratic Study Group at Panorama in Lacey. Doglio is director of anti-coal campaigns for both Climate Solutions and the Power Past Coal groups.

The study group meets at 1:30 p.m. at the Panorama Auditorium, 1670 Circle Loop S.E. Events are open to the public and to people of any political affiliation.

Doglio’s talk – titled “Coal Export – Northwest Crossroads” – is expected to discuss the fight against the export potentially of 150 million tons of coal mined from the PowderRiver Basin in Montana and Wyoming. Train cars would haul the coal by rail through many communities – including ThurstonCounty – en route to export facilities in Oregon, British Columbia or Whatcom County.
