Nov 8, 2013

Millennium Bulk Terminals Lead Agencies

Dear Millennium Bulk Terminals Lead Agencies,

A coal export terminal at Longview, WA is a terrible idea.

Here are factors you should consider in an EIS:

congestion and noise from train traffic pollution of air pollution of waterways harm to existing businesses delay of emergency responders aquatic ecosystem health fishing human health pollution from tanker traffic noise from tanker traffic shipping accidents shipping spills strip-mining impacts climate change delay in transport of other goods delay in rail passenger traffic alternative upgrades to existing railways

Thank you.
