Submission Text
The shipment of coal to Asia will just allow those countries to continue to burn coal, clean or dirty, and not jump towards cleaner energy sources. The burning of the coal will result in increased greenhouse gases entering the atmosphere increasing human addition to climate change. In addition, we are just giving these countries more energy to take more of our jobs. I want the environmental and economic (beyond selling the coal) effects should be included in the scope of the analysis.
