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.

Aside from the environmental effects the coal will probably not be needed. Most of it would be headed to Asian markets. China is now the largest installer of renewable electricity and it appears that they are not slowing down.

I urge you to consider these impacts in the scope of the Environmental Impact Statement before approving an unnecessary project.

Thank you

Paul Hopkins
