Submission Text
Dear U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, WA Department of Ecology, and Cowlitz County Commission, I strongly oppose the construction of a coal export terminal at Longview, WA which would require the transport of coal on trains and ships throughout the Northwest. This plan exemplifies the dangers of short-term thinking and of ignoring the widespread negative consequences to Longview's - and America's - economy, environment, and public health and safety. Why build facilities to export a product that is toxic to mine, toxic to transport and toxic to burn. Profit, of course is the motive. Is your mandate to make decision based on profit for the few or the well-being of the many? I urge you to consider these impacts in the scope of the Environmental Impact Statement. Thank you, Nando Raynolds, Talent OR
