I do not support development of of coal handling and transfer facility in Longview, WA. We are already seeing more trains carrying coal in Vancouver, often waiting on the side rails. The impact of coal dust on our health is already very well known as is the negative impact on the environment. The market for coal overseas seems to be diminishing. If the demand for coal continues to decrease, will we be left with another site to clean up when the proposed site still has residual toxins? I vote no for coal!
