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. I was one of the 800+ people at the Longview hearing - not paid to attend - but taking my own time and my own gas money to speak about the recklessness of this proposal. This plan exemplifies the dangers of short-term thinking and of ignoring the widespread negative consequences to Longview's - and America's - economy, environment, and public health and safety. I urge you to consider these impacts in the scope of the Environmental Impact Statement. Thank you, Laurie Caplan Astoria, OR
