Submission Text
For centuries, human polluted their own water supplies with bodily waste, not realizing the effects it would have "downstream". Today, we still suffer the same blindness with our extraction industries and the way we burn our dwindling supply of ancient sunlight (coal, oil, etc). Unfortunately, it is quite possibly a mistake from which we will never recover... at least not for a many millions of years. The exportation of coal through WA would not only cause immediate health issues to the populations affected by the extraction and transportation of the coal, but there's also the potential of an Extinction Level Event caused by the rapid human release of its carbon into the atmosphere. There are some scientific experiments that should not be run: this project is one of them. Please stop this immediately.
