Dear Sir:
I urge you to deny Arch Coal's application for a coal port shipping facility in Longview, Washington.

Exporting coal will cause air and water pollution, destruction of wildlife habitat, and traffic congestion and public safety concerns from increased train traffic. It will require the condemnation of private property to build the Tongue River Railroad, and most importantly, it will escalate climate change.

Thank you for the opportunity to comment.
