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 and the transport of coal on trains and ships throughout the Northwest. Doing so would have numerous negative impacts.

We need to find alternatives to burning more coal - anywhere in the world. We should not be facilitating it. We hear frequent news reports from China of their increasing air pollution - they have to decrease burning of coal to safeguard their population.

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

Thank you
