STORYTIME:
The fossil fuel monster is growing, but it has an Achilles Heel.
Energy companies have to ship equipment into their mining and drilling
sites, and ship the coal and oil out, via trains and pipelines.
Now our local ports are shipping supplies and oil for the fracking
boom underway in the Bakken Oil Shale Basin of North Dakota/Montana.

Come to hear about the oil fracking supplies coming into the Port of
Olympia for rail shipment to North Dakota, and plans for
50 oil trains a month coming back from North Dakota to the
Port of Grays Harbor in Aberdeen/Hoquiam.
