This week, CascadiaNow! is proud to have two projects hosting science events: Climate Science on Tap (by CN! project Cascadia Climate Action) and March for Science - Seattle.
In 2010, the Northwest region saw its first proposal for large-scale coal exports. Shortly after, a policy and research non-profit called Sightline started tracking the region's fossil fuel transportation. With the help of a wide span of communities, tribes and First Nations, environmental supporters, and many other organizations and individuals, nearly every proposed project by the coal, gas, and oil industries they opposed has been defeated.
