Americans urgently need jobs and Millennium Bulk Terminals is ready to provide them. Please approve a reasonable project scope for the environmental study and help get Americans back to work.

Ecology should defer to the federal government for environmental review and permit decisions for issues that pertain to or would affect interstate commerce, such as rail capacity. Ultimately, global warming and the impact of fossil fuels on the environment are national government and international government to government issues and should not be considered in a local development EIS.

Thank you for letting me submit my opinions and show my support for the project. As the figures to validate Global Warming have now been repudiated there is no reason not to find a safe and sensible way to do all this.

Sincerely, Allan C Wirkkala Sr Allan C Wirkkala Sr
