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.

While I am not a resident of the region, I am very concerned with the environmental impact of mining in the West, and with the ongoing impact of coal consumption in Asia.

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

Thank you
