My self and my family are strongly opposed to developing a port at Longview, Washington in order to export coal to the Orient.
The Nation can no longer permit projects in one area without carefully analyzing the impacts not only, to that specific area, but to other areas, the region, the nation and the world. Allowing coal to be exported from any westcoast city will have extremely adverse impacts on all of the above.
It is the responsibility of the agencies involved to protect our citizens, to specific all the impacts and the social and environmental changes and impacts that will probably occur. We cannot give in to the pressure applied by industry and the people who have the power. It is our land and it must be protected.
