Submission Text
When evaluating environmental impact, complete cradle to grave impacts should be used--that is, not only the land/sea/air impacts of construction and operation of the terminal, but also the impacts of the eventual use of the coal. I do not believe that I can be argued that the negative impacts of the coal use are irrelevant to the construction and operation of the terminal.
