This project will create and bring jobs to Cowlitz County, an area in much need of business and commerce. We have coal here in the US--which means there is no need to import. To export to other countries allows our nation to gain some much-needed economic boosts. And the western United States as a whole, in addition to our local area, will benefit from this venture. There may be some that say coal is dangerous to our environment. Yeah, well so is everything else in one way or another. I think the minor negative impact coal might cause during rail transport is far outweighed by the benefit of what shipping this coal by rail, then exported to other countries, will be. Thank you for your time and I'm excited to see this venture come to Cowlitz County!!
