Dear U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, WA Department of Ecology, and Cowlitz County Commission:
The GOP have 4 "DEATH SPIRAL" policies in motion as their Campaign of DECEIT enters its 5th decade, backed by a completely corrupt infrastructure, while they pursue their MOTTO: "Fix the data to push the HIDDEN AGENDAS--lie, deceive, fabricate. Those "DEATH SPIRALS" are: 1) Global Warming--let's lie for 30 years about the physics that governs the planet, something as basic as The Greenhouse Effect. Well now there's already a horrific DAMAGE REPORT after 30 years of lies about the physics that governs this planet--TENS OF MILLIONS have been murdered since 2010 from sea level rise, severe weather events, and from food crop failures from such events which have shoved over 500 million people into starvation and malnutrition. That DAMAGE REPORT will be HUNDREDS of MILLIONS murdered by 2020 and TRILLIONS of Dollars of damage. 2) Why? Because the GOP aren't happy with reaching a 2 degree Celsius increase by 2025 spewing 90 Million tons per day into an already saturated atmosphere. A REDLINE we said we would NOT CROSS, but are going to cross. No they have to set into motion numerous acceleration by processing the filthiest of filthiest of carbon available: tar sands, oil shale, and more than 18 train cars of coal to be shipped to China, on top of 7 to 17% of all that fracking volume escaping into the atmosphere where it's 23 to 30 times more destructive than carbon dioxide. So any one of these accelerations, spewing another 30-70% more pollution, on top of the 90 million tons/day that is already being put into a saturated atmosphere, any one of these accelerations puts the planet over a permanent irreversible cliff 2015. 3) Their "CUT & GUT" Budget policies which were forced on Roosevelt in 1937 driving unemployment up past 15% and causing a double-dip Great Depression, which is exactly what is going on it Europe where 500 people a day are committing suicide and mothers in Greece are giving away their children cause they can't feed them. (Body Economic--austerity kills). 4) 30 years of lies about deregulation so that derivatives stuffed with junk can damage the economy for a 4th time. So far its been 1987 (S&L), 1998 (LTCM), 2008 (Subprime), and 2018-2020 there's now 700 TRILLION in unregulated derivatives going head-to-head with Global Warming to see which can destroy the U.S. economy, the world economy and the planet. Yes sir, the GOP Campaign of DECEIT as it enters its 5th decade, backed by a completely corrupt Infrastructure, as the pursue their MOTTO: "Fix the data--lie, deceive, fabricate" is definitely a group of people who love investing in their own violating ignorance and incessant lies. It's the reason they destroy everything they touch and why they are now mass murderers who need to be INDICTED for 1) Crimes Against Humanity, 2) Breach of National Security, 3) and Mass Murder. Do the people in Washington State also want to be INDICTED for engaging in incessant lies and violating ignorance leading them to be just as responsible for the 3 crimes listed above? Because if you support one of the accelerations the GOP are trying to put into motion, then you too will be just as responsible for MASS MURDER.
I strongly oppose the construction of a coal export terminal at Longview, WA which would transport coal on trains and ships throughout the Northwest.
Coal is a dirty and dangerous combustible fuel that coal companies would put in open rail cars to travel through our communities and on massive cargo ships through our marine waters, fishing grounds and recreation areas. This proposal would negatively affect my community by increasing congestion and noise with more coal train traffic, polluting our air and local waterways, harming existing businesses, and delaying emergency responders. It would also 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. Coal export threatens the health, public safety and economic vitality of our communities.
I urge you to consider these impacts in the scope of the Environmental Impact Statement.
Thank you.
