Dear Agencies, Please consider the adverse mental health impacts of permitting this export proposal. Our best climate scientists are in agreement that burning coal is threatening humanity's very existence. Every coal train that passes by is a reminder of our own self destruction. Such constant reminders have to cause stress and anxiety for anyone who cares about the future of the planet. Chronic stress and anxiety and subsequent despair impose serious health costs and a loss of productivity on a population. Please consider these adverse effects. Thank you.
