Submission Text
In this age of rapidly progressing climate change at a global scale, I feel there should be absolutely no new development of coal mining operations or ports for export to other countries. Coal burning is a major contributor to climate change and should be rapidly phased out of our energy repertoire not increased. On a more local level, many citizens have stated that they do not want trains of coal (and the coal dust they would spread over our cities and countryside) passing through our landscapes as they will create environmental and human health hazzards.
