Vancouver approves two coal controversial coal export projects

Real economics beats imaginary “science”.

“Port Metro Vancouver has approved a $200-million expansion project at North Vancouver’s Neptune Bulk Terminals that will double the terminal’s coal export capacity. The decision, announced on the port’s website Wednesday, is the first of two applications before the port authority that will help secure Metro Vancouver’s role as North America’s largest coal-export hub. It comes at a time when public awareness is growing over coal exports, the role coal plays in global warming, and the port’s procedure in approving the expansions in-house.” [Canada.com]
