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.
Coal is a dirty and dangerous combustible fuel that coal companies would put in open rail cars to travel through our communities and on massive cargo ships through our marine waters, fishing grounds and recreation areas. This proposal would negatively affect my community by increasing congestion and noise with more coal train traffic, polluting our air and local waterways, harming existing businesses, and delaying emergency responders. It would also damage aquatic ecosystems and fishing areas on the Columbia River, harm human health, increase tanker traffic and the potential for shipping accidents and spills, expand strip-mining in Wyoming and Montana, and escalate climate change. Coal export threatens the health, public safety and economic vitality of our communities.
I urge you to consider these impacts in the scope of the Environmental Impact Statement.
I am a Vietnam War veteran, real print journalist and Wyoming graduate. Corporate coal parasites have dug and dredged Big Wyo into scar, metaphorically like bombing the faces off Iraqi children from 30,000 feet. My nation incessantly allows the dumbest men they can summons to destroy our planet intentionally to enrich their brief pathetic lives because A. global warming is a commie plot, B. Muslims only die for oil or C. I'm an American parasitic maggot and I don't give a flying dead Fallujah baby who I bomb or sicken for cash, sweet, sweet, sweet American cash. Thank you Jesus. Screw these coal boys and try to stop supporting freaks who chemically bomb little brown girls from 30,000 feet to suck the natural resources from their dead eye sockets. I mean every word of it. We're a bloody corporate war machine creating wars to grease fat, white maggots who eat children for breakfast. It is sooooooooooo despicable, America can't even discuss it. I discuss it. I am a REAL print journalist and you have to tell coal to go to hell. They're going any way. Book your trip early via Expdia and fetch that Family Town discount. Billy Bob!
