Submission Text
Dear scoping agencies, Please consider the impact of a coal export terminal at the Longview site on the marine environment. The Pacific Northwest depends on its marine environment for recreation, food, and wildlife habitat and these should not be put at jeopardy for dirty coal industries. Please study the effects of shipping traffic, shipping noise, diesel particulates from vessel engines, and climate change due to the burning of coal on the marine environment of the entire Pacific Northwest. Thank you for your consideration, Craig Witt
