Submission Text
Our civilization is based on growth through accumulated wisdom and understanding. We must draw on our understanding of basic science to build a viable future for our children. How can we possibly imagine that, having recognized the down-side of coal combustion in the US, that we can in good conscience export that combustion overseas? What is it you don't understand about the need to STOP BURNING COAL? Have you no children? Have you no morals? As we all struggle to develop strategies for a sustainable future it is clear that any inducement to exporting coal is a step in the wrong direction and should be stopped. Our greenhouse gas load in the atmosphere is leveraging a geophysical experiment, and we live in the test tube. The results are alarming. PLEASE STOP THIS COAL EXPORTING PROJECT.
