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.
Encouraging coal mining, export, and burning in this era of global heating is precisely the wrong way to go.
Keep that coal in the ground and promote green sustainable energy to help preserve life as we know it on our planet.
I urge you to consider these impacts in the scope of the Environmental Impact Statement.
Dr. Joel Cohen
