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

I strongly oppose the construction of a coal export terminal at Longview, WA which would transport coal on trains and ships throughout the Northwest.

This whole proposal is crazy. I can't understand why you would destroy this land in Wyoming and Montana forever by strip mining for coal, send it to a foreign country to bypass environmental laws here in the U.S., only so a few rich people get richer and no one else gets the benefit.

Just drop this idea now.

Respectfully,

Terry Richards 8700 Silver Drive Pinckney, MI 48169 734-276-7343
