Submission Text
We need to move on from developing infrastructure to support a deadly energy source. From the environmental damage done at the extraction sites, to the potential air quality problems along the entire route, there is enough potential risk to human health and wellness to make this project unworthy of our support. On top of that, it is all energy spent to further the climate crisis fueled by the burning of coal. I want all of the potential impacts of this project considered, and I hope it leads us to question the investment in harmful and shortsighted resources while we could be developing energy infrastructures and businesses in the Northwest that will actually benefit further generations.
