Dear U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, WA Department of Ecology, and Cowlitz County Commission:
Our planet's atmosphere cannot absorb more of the greenhouses gases generated from burning coal. Please demonstrate responsibility for the future of earth, and the future of our children, by taking this into account in your Environmental Impact Statement.
For corroboration please see the 9/27/2013 report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The risks of burning more fossil fuel greatly outweigh the economic justifications for exporting coal.
