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 44 million tons of coal every year on trains and ships throughout the Northwest.
The principal impact of this proposal would be to add enormously to global warming and, even more important, add to the economic and political obstacles obstructing the absolutely essential transition to a sustainable energy system.
In addition, this proposal would negatively affect many communities by increasing congestion, pollution and noise with more coal train traffic
I urge you to consider these impacts in the scope of the Environmental Impact Statement.
Thank you.
William Ferrell
