From:Robert Kolkebeck <> Sent:Monday, October 14, 2013 2:25 PM Subject:Docket number 2013-19738: Comment on scope of EIS for Millennium Bulk Terminals Longview LLC Coal Export Terminal
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.
Coal is a dirty and dangerous fuel. It's use contributes to the extreme weather caused by increases in carbon in the atmosphere.
Do not support the expansion of strip-mining in Wyoming and Montana. Do not escalate climate change. Coal export threatens the health, public safety and economic vitality of our communities.
Consider that in the scope of the Environmental Impact Statement.
Thank you.
Robert Kolkebeck
