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 transship coal brought in on trains throughout the Northwest.

This project would pollute our global air putting mercury into our Minnesota lakes and the fish we eat. The coal may be thousands of miles from the source but it contributes to global climate change that impacts everyone.

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

Thank you
