Submission Text
In addition to the many concerns expressed, I don't understand how so much coal can be shipped to a country attempting to rid itself of the pollution and are seeking alternative ways to meet their energy needs. This seems to be a long term decision that will impact areas of Montana and neighboring states, forever. This decision will only be beneficial to a few people, financially. The rest of the impact is irresponsible on the part of the company and very short thinking. To change the face of an area for a few years while making a few very rich, Is reprehensible.
