In my hometown of Bellingham, a coal terminal was proposed years ago to increase trade with China. Immediately after its proposal people began protesting as the terminal was to be built on Lummi Nation territory affecting Lummi fishing grounds, which are protected under a treaty from 1855. The coal terminal would also vastly increase the number of coal trains going by daily. The tracks in Washington are basically right on the beach, and coal dust and other pollutants would get into the water even more than they already do.
In early january the DNR incorporated land otherwise set aside for the terminal to be reintegrated into Lummi Nation, meaning the fishing spots can be preserved.
