I urge you to deny approval of three proposed coal terminals in the Pacific Northwest . As one of thousands of retirees who moved here to spend our time and treasure in this haven of unspoiled natural beauty, I implore you not to risk the air, scenic, marine and spiritual quality of this unique part of America by allowing the invasion of coal trains, coal ships, coal dust, coal traffic and the inevitable lowering of our quality of life. Don't sell the soul of the Pacific Northwest to the greedy coal industry who have PROVEN by their actions to the present day in Appalacia that they put profits first before safety, the environment, the future or the truth.
