Submission Text
I'm sure the proposed Millenium coal export terminal in Longview WA will bring many jobs to the area. But we can’t continue to create jobs by ignoring environmental costs. We can’t continue to create jobs at the cost of our children’s health and future. We need policies to encourage cleaner development and green jobs. We need to create sustainable economic development plans, despite the fact that defining “sustainable” is complex. So what if the policies aren't perfect? At least they'll be better than developing and exporting climate-deadly, heavily polluting coal.
