Dear U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, WA Department of Ecology, and Cowlitz County Commission,
I strongly oppose the construction of a coal export terminal at Longview, WA which would transport coal on trains and ships throughout the Northwest.
I worked for a time at the Centralia 'steam plant'/power generating facility. Coal dust is nasty, nasty stuff - many of my fellow workers had respiratory and neurological issues due to exposure. We really don't need that garbage - coal dust - leaving its dirty footprints all over our communtities as it chugs off to become someone else's problem. There are far too many children living along those tracks!
Thank you for listening, G D Abbott
