Dear U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, WA Department of Ecology, and Cowlitz County Commission:
I am writing, this time, to express my concerns about the construction of a coal export terminal at Longview, WA which would transport coal on trains and ships throughout the Northwest.
Specifically, I am concerned that this proposal would, potentially, damage aquatic ecosystems and fishing areas on the Columbia River, harm human health, increase tanker traffic and the potential for shipping accidents and spills, expand strip-mining in Wyoming and Montana, and escalate climate change.
With all this in mind, I urge you to consider these impacts in the scope of the Environmental Impact Statement. Thank you.
