The environmental study for the Cowlitz County port should be completed expeditiously. Any American operation that puts people back to work should be supported in these tough economic times. When considering the extent of the EIS, we should keep it to what is actually affected - Millennium Bulk Terminals site in Cowlitz County. These trains are no different than the coal cars we've transported through our state for many decades. In reality, not one ton more of coal will be used globally because of U.S. exports, and the net gain in greenhouse gas emissions is insignificant. If we don't build these terminals, energy suppliers will just look elsewhere for their supply! I sincerely appreciate the opportunity to submit these comments on the scoping. Let's get this project moving forward so there are more good-paying jobs in the U.S.A. Kind regards, Tahlia Murdock Tahlia Murdock tahlia@stellarecruitment.com
