Submission Text
Please thoroughly investigate the impacts of transporting and burning coal on climate change. I am concerned about the trains themselves and coal dust moving through my region. Please closely examine the global effects of burning American coal in Asia. As we see in the Philippines, another super-storm has effected marginalized people. I'm not sure how you'd determine the moral impact of transporting and shipping coal, but I believe in the context of climate change, that it's immoral.
