Submission Text
The scale of consequence resulting from hundreds more loaded coal cars crossing the state of Montana will equal the scope of the proposal; HUGE. We residents currently inhale voluminous quantities of combusted wood, diesel, gasoline, and coal effluents. Already drivers spend hours idling at railroad crossings waiting for coal trains to pass through Montana towns and cities. Noise, dust, expense, toxins, time, danger; all these potential impacts to ALL affected states need to be included in any Environmental Impact Statement for the proposed additional export terminals on the Pacific coast.
