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 transport coal on trains and ships throughout the Northwest.

The purchasers of this coal will of course burn it, adding to CO2 in the atmosphere and global warming. If we don't sell this coal, then the purchasers will turn to more environmentally friendly options such as wind, solar, or at worst, natural gas.
I urge you to consider this impact in the scope of the Environmental Impact Statement.

Thank you
