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.

There can be no question that expanding the export path between the western coal fields and the Asian and other global markets will greatly increase global coal use and the resulting greenhouse gas emissions. The climate crisis means we need to be finding ways to slash global coal use, not enable it to increase. Please do not approve this terminal.

Thank you
