Submission Text
The impact of this proposal should include ALL aspects of the purpose of the proposal; delivering coal to Asia to burn to generate electricity. We can and should measure its impact to the land where the coal is mined, the impact to communities along transportation routes of frequent, long trains dispersing measurable amounts of particulates, and the impact of the products of combustion in Asia coming back to the USA and settling in our lakes and rivers. All are real and measurable and will have a negative impact on our communities and families.
