This 2013 photo shows the site of a proposed export terminal in Oakland, known as West Gateway, located next to the Bay Bridge toll plaza. Utah’s largest coal producer Bowie Resource Partners has subleased the 34-acre city-owned parcel to build and operate a rail-to-ship bulk-freight loading marine terminal for shipping Utah coal to Asian markets. Bowie is also funding a lawsuit against Oakland’s ban on coal handling, now being tried in California’s federal court. Citing impacts to public health, the city enacted the ban in 2016, prompting the lawsuit from developer Phil Tagami, who alleges the city breached its contract with him.

An unbroken paleontological record spanning 25 million years of the Lake Cretaceous is found on the Kaiparowits Plateau. Trump's dismembering of the Grand Staircase-Escalante could open it up to energy development.
