As a physician, educator, and researcher who has published and speaks frequently on environmental health issues, I favor a comprehensive EIS, by which I mean taking into account all the environmental consequences of this project, including the effects of coal trains on local waterways, pollution from coal dust, risks of accidents and fires, and consequences for climate change and increased mercury due to burning of the coal, consequences that will affect us in the pacific nw.
