Submission Text
I strongly oppose the Longview bulk terminal. Living in the Columbia River Gorge, the increase in coal traffic via rail or water will be detrimental to the quality of life here. Enabling Asia to burn more coal is contributing to the on-going pollution of plant earth. It is imperative that we move toward clean energy rather than continuing the short-sighted use of coal which is beneficial only to the companies promoting this energy source. Thank you for denying this proposed terminal. Ann Bronson
