I am a resident of Seattle WA. I am concerned about the cumulative impact of multiple fossil fuel export facilities being simultaneously proposed along the northwest coast. I have particular concerns for the lack of proven ability of the shipping facility and vessels to contain particulate and handle large scale spills. One spill would be catastrophic to our regions marine and near shore ecosystems. I strongly urge DOE to conduct EIS with the analysis of cumulative impacts in mind. The partitioning of projects will result in underestimating the realistic impact of the Millennium Bulk Logistics Coal Terminal.
