A talk at PSU with an emphasis on science.

Thanks to Sigma Xi Columbia-Willamette Chapter and Northwest Friends of the Union of Concerned Scientists for putting on the event. Given the audience, I’ll be focusing this talk on what the science tells us about key dimensions of the Northwest coal export proposals.
