Please include my comments as part of the public response to the proposed coal export terminal at Longview. This project should move forward without delay.

When considering the extent of the EIS, we should keep it to what is actually affected - Millennium Bulk Terminals site in Cowlitz County. These trains are no different than the coal cars we've transported through our state for many decades. In reality, not one ton more of coal will be used globally because of U.S. exports, and the net gain in greenhouse gas emissions is insignificant. If we don't build these terminals, energy suppliers will just look elsewhere for their supply!

Thank you for letting me submit my opinions and show my support for the project.

Sincerely, R. Jason Klein jason@awardemblem.com
