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.

This proposal would negatively affect our future as it will increase access to coal, the combustion of which is the leading contributor to greenhouse gas emissions and global warming in the electricity sector.

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

Thank you

Kevin McMurphy 5205 Danbury Rd Bethesda, MD 20814
