Submission Text
I suggest that the proposals to export coal to Asia involve a criminal and immoral disregard for the life of others.  I'm talking not only about stealing the quality of life from those along the tracks and around the export facilities... I'm also talking about the quality of future global life that will be degraded and destroyed by the growing climate catastrophes resulting from the continued burning of fossil fuels.  Peer reviewed climate science is virtually unanimous in warning that salvaging a livable planet for future life requires quickly moving from fossil fuels to clean and green energy.  These coal export proposals are doing the opposite. They are moving us toward destroying the livability of our planet, and they are terribly wrong!
