As the Exxon/Mobile Mega-loads shipments move closer, Northern Rockies Rising Tide (out of Missoula) is starting a roadshow featuring the movie H2Oil. So if you missed this powerful documentary a few months ago here is your second chance. Moscow’s Friends of the Clearwater will be sponsoring the event at the University of Idaho’s College of Natural Resources building, Room 10 at 5:30 pm on October 19th. There will also be a showing at Lewis and Clark State College on October 20th at 3:00 in Sacajawea Hall Room 115.

As reported in the October 5th Lewiston Tribune, the first Exxon/Mobile Mega-loads shipments have arrived in Vancouver, Washington and could start being barged up to the port of Lewiston as early as next week even though they don’t know if they will be permitted to ship the first 9 of 200 shipments through Idaho or Montana. The port of Vancouver is expected to bring in $1,000,000 from the 200 shipments whereas the port of Lewiston will only receive $100,000, or less than $10,000 a month.

The Idaho Supreme court has yet to make a ruling on the permitting of the precedent setting case of the Conoco/Phillips shipments to Billings.
