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 proposal would negatively affect aquatic ecosystems and fishing areas on the Columbia River, harm human health, increase tanker traffic and the potential for shipping accidents and spills, expand strip- mining in Wyoming and Montana, and escalate climate change.
It will also contribute carbon to the atmosphere which we cannot let happen. For the excuse of supplying a few jobs the coal industry is signing the death certificate for the human race! This must be considered along with the other local impacts that MBT Longview will have on our region and the local area.
I urge you to consider the wider impacts in the scope of the Environmental Impact Statement.
Thank you
Paul Fellows 4220 Dayton Ave N Seattle, WA 98103 206-632-2311
