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.

The recent devastation in the Philippines is just the latest warning that time is running out. As one of the world's top per capita polluters we simply owe this to the rest of the world, if not to ourselves (It was new York's turn last October and who knows when next).

Thank you.

David Smith
