Submission Text
We are on the verge of a global environmental disaster that is caused by global warming that has been directly traced to the burning of fossil fuels. This project, the mining, transporting, selling, and using coal is just plain wrong, from beginning all the way to the end users. The coal dust that is released just in the shipping through our region is a known contributor to lung diseases and asthma. The release of more hydrocarbons into the atmosphere in Asia doesn't just affect Asia, it affects all of us, everywhere. The companies involved in this selling and transfer of Coal are doing it for the Profit, nothing else. We have to consider the wider impact. PLEASE SAY NO TO THIS HEINOUS TRAVESTY AND STOP IT IN ITS TRACKS.
