The Honorable Millennium Bulk Terminal EIS
Dear null EIS:
We must not export coal from the Longview Terminals. Burning coal is one of the worst things we can do for our environment. This is a worldwide problem and if burned in China or elsewhere will contribute to our ultimate demise.
Exporting coal will not create thousands of jobs; the coal trains will injure our transportation system and destroy existing jobs and quality of life for Washington State citizens.
We can get out of this recession with investment in good, clean green jobs and divestment from the fossil fuel industry.
