Dear U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, WA Department of Ecology, and Cowlitz County Commission,

Please oppose the construction of a coal export terminal at Longview, WAt.

This proposal would increase congestion and noise. It would damage aquatic ecosystems and fishing areas, harm human health and the potential for spills, expand strip-mining in Wyoming and Montana, and escalate climate change.

{lease consider these impacts im the Environmental Impact Statement.
