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

Profits from the sale of coal should include the costs related to the environmental damage that mining, transporting and burning it creates. By approving this facility without fully accounting for those costs, you are asking me and the rest of the citizens of the United States to subsidize the restoration of the environment. That should be the responsibility of those profiting from this endeavor; including our friends overseas.

Thank you
