The Catholic Bishops of Washington State in a statement entitled: Coal and Caring for Creation "urge civic leaders to give a thorough review of the proposal for the construction and operation of a coal terminal in Cowlitz County and its impact on the environment, fishing interests, transportation, jobs and the economy." The Bishops further state, "We consider the protection of our environment a moral obligation and, therefore, we support a comprehensive analysis of all the potential risks and benefits of the Millennium Bulk Terminals - Longview proposal." Their full statement is attached.
