The company that wants to build three proposed coal terminals in Washington and Oregon says coal trains will pass through our state on their way to Canada even if the terminals are not built.

Opponents of the terminals say they would bring traffic congestion from the number of trains, and generate coal dust and greenhouse gases. Supporters say they will create jobs. The state Department of Ecology is doing an environmental review of the project. But will it matter in the end if the trains roll anyway?

The Argus Observer has the story.
