MBTL Coal Export Terminal EIS
Dear U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and WA Dept of Ecology, EIS,
Please do not permit the construction of a coal export terminal at Longview, WA. Transporting coal on trains and ships throughout the Northwest is very bad for our environment. Burning coal at its final destination is very bad for the global environment and exacerbates climate change.
I totally oppose any and all attempts to encourage and increase the burning of coal, the dirtiest of fossil fuels. Therefore please do not allow coal to be dug up and transported through my State.
I urge you to consider these impacts in the scope of the Environmental Impact Statement.
Thank you for this opportunity to comment.
