Dear U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, WA Department of Ecology, and Cowlitz County Commission:
We are opposed to construction of a coal export terminal at Longview, WA.
Coal production and use pollutes our air and waterways. Strip-mining decimates our natural open spaces. Burning coal pollutes the air and adds to climate change. The use of coal prolongs the US addiction to fossil fuels.
The sooner we stop coddling the coal industry, the better. The sooner we spend time/money on clean alternative energy, the better.
Please consider this when working on the Environmental Impact Statement.
Jim Miller and Family
