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.
Coal is a dirty and dangerous combustible fuel that coal companies would put in open rail cars to travel through our communities and on massive cargo ships through our marine waters, fishing grounds and recreation areas.
This is dangerous in so many ways. Coal is toxic. Period.
I urge you to consider these impacts in the scope of the Environmental Impact Statement.
