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.

Exporting coal will lead to more greenhouse gas emissions and all the harmful effects that come with climate change. I'm very concerned about sea level rise and a decrease in food production from higher average temperatures.

I urge you to consider these impacts in the scope of the Environmental Impact Statement.

Thank you
