The proposed Millenium coal export terminal in Longview WA, if built, will export 44 million metric tons of Montana coal per year to Asia. Since the coal from the Powder River Basin emits about 2 tons of CO2 per ton of coal, that means 88 million tons of CO2 emissions to warm our globe. That's a gigaton for just over 11 years of operation.
What air are people and animals of this world supposed to breathe?
Stop the insanity. Global warming is real. Adding this much carbon to the air will increase global warming.
Please do not approve this Environmental Impact Statement. Say NO to the Longview terminal.
