“It has come to my attention, that there are community concerns about a purported plan to develop a coal plant or coal distribution facility as part of the Oakland Global project. This is simply untrue…. [My company] is publicly on record as having no interest or involvement in the pursuit of coal-related operations at the former Oakland Army Base.” - Phil Tagami, December 2013

Tons of CO2 Are At Issue
More than 1 billion tons of CO2 could be added to the atmosphere if Oakland's new commodities bulk terminal by the Bay Bridge toll plaza is dedicated to coal.
"The city of Oakland took an important step recently documenting the health and safety risks and climate impacts of coal and specifically banning its shipment through the city. Other localities should follow suit -- and the state should too -- to reduce and, ultimately, eliminate the shipment of coal through all California ports." - Gov. Jerry Brown, August 26, 2016
