The ECOreport reposts a statement regarding the proposed oil by rail terminal in Vancouver (WA), Washington’s Attorney General Opposes Tesoro Savage
Press Release from the Washington State Office of Attorney General Bob Ferguson
OLYMPIA — In today’s closing arguments for the environmental review of a proposed crude oil terminal in Vancouver, Attorney General Bob Ferguson’s Counsel for the Environment will announce its opposition to the project.
Vancouver, WA – After weeks of testimony and argument about the Tesoro-Savage oil terminal proposal, at least two things are clear: first, this project will not benefit Washington citizens and consumers, and second, the risk of an oil spill into the Columbia River is too great.
You may have already heard. The federal Ministry of Fisheries and Oceans just approved permits for the Site C Dam, which means construction could begin within 90 days. In other words, this is your very last chance to stop Christy Clark from taking Site C past the point of no return. Our BC Greens team is taking this head on, so I need 1 thing from you right now: Sign and share our petition to stop Site C before the Premier pushes it past the point of no return.

On July 4, 2013, Sun Bandit parent Next Generation Energy launched an ‘all hands on deck’ effort to identify and clear the many hurdles inhibiting widespread solar water heating adoption – and to achieve the certification and street cred to bring their innovation Sun Bandit to market.

The ECOreport looks at a highly successful Indiegogo fundraiser: the World’s first Rideable Luggage
By Roy L Hales
My first response to Modobag is laughter. Imagine dozens of motorized suitcases zipping through a busy airport corridor. Pedestrians beware! These vehicles are “three times faster than walking” and you do not know when someone will drive one around the next corner. This carry on vehicle is a highly successful Indiegogo fundraiser, but is there a future for rideable Luggage?
