Submission Text
This is the year 2013. This means that 21st century science needs to be used to evaluate this project. Climate change is part of 21st century science, and is a direct manifestation of this project. Therefore, it is imperative that it be included in scoping. The coal industry will complain that including this is unprecedented, but an unprecedented project deserves an unprecedented scope. Resource extraction is a process where the costs are socialized, while the profits are privatized. All of these costs should be considered in the EIS. Thank you for your consideration.
