Submission Text
Thank you for this opportunity to comment. As a citizen who takes seriously the responsibility to understand important issues and advocate for sound policy, I have spent considerable time learning about climate disruption and the way coal burning contributes to climate disruption. Serious climate impacts are already occurring in our region. I am particularly concerned about ocean acidification and significant damage to our forests. These problems will only worsen over time. Since the proposed coal export plan will result in more GHG emissions, not only through the burning of coal but through the transport process, I request that climate impacts be studied in the E.I.S. Thank you again.
