Candy billionaire Forrest Mars Jr refuses to meet with climate activists over coal export railroad

On the 23ed of April, climate activists and a Montana resident who lives near a rail line that recently began handling coal trains showed up at the McLean, VA headquarters of Mars, the candy company. Neither Mr Mars nor any of his staff would agree to meet with Climate First! activists or the Montana resident who came out with them.

Candy billionaire Forrest Mars Jr found out a few years ago that a Tongue River Railroad, a proposed coal export rail line in Montana would cross his ranch. At first he funded opposition, but then be bought the development rights and rerouted the line to miss his own land and change nothing else.

If Mr Mars and the rest of those with big investments in exporting US coal get their way, we will all have to live on Mars to escape the “return” on their investment in climate chaos!
