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.
In addition to all the negative climate, ecosystem and community impacts, I, simply, think we, as a country can do better. We can do better because, one, we now know there are cleaner ways to get the energy we need. It's time to make a commitment to these clean ways.
Two, I am so very tired and sad that money wins over the environment every time. It's time to recognize and place the value on the environment it deserves, that it has, whether we as humans recognize it or not.
Finally, it's time to get creative when trying to bolster the economy. Look ahead to the future and future economies. Stop looking to the old way of doing things, the easy way, for the answer.
I urge you to say "NO" to coal export.
