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.
Other than tar sands oil, there isn't a dirtier fuel on the planet. Exporting coal from the west coast will obviously create much greater incentive to not only burn more of this filthy fuel, but bespoil thousands of acres of domestic land and the surrounding water ways. This is simply NOT a reasonable proposal knowing what we know today about the damages of both coal mining and burning.
I urge you to consider these impacts in the scope of the Environmental Impact Statement.
