Dear U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, WA Department of Ecology, and Cowlitz County Commission,

I strongly oppose the construction of a coal export terminal at Longview, WA which would transport coal on trains and ships throughout the Northwest with disastrous consequences for communities and the climate.

Increasing the Carbon Economy should be considered a crime against the planet and our children. Our generation must decide to stop burning fossil fuels, and building new export terminals is counter productive to reach climate goals

I urge you to consider these impacts in the scope of the Environmental Impact Statement.

Thank you

Lars Boelen
