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.

We should keep all of our coal for domestic use and save as much of it as possible for future generations. We need to burn as little of it as possible because of climate change. Encouraging more coal use at home or overseas is contrary to what our children and grandchildren need.

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

Thank you
