Submission Text
The Environmental Impact Statement for this project should be broad in scope and include all effects of mining, transporting, and burning coal. The study should not be limited to proximate impacts of the terminal itself. This is because the terminal is a connected action to the activities of mining, transporting, and burning coal. The coal would not be mined, transported, or burned, "but for" this terminal.
