Please do a thorough environmental study on all the impacts of the coal export terminal at Cowlitz County.

Coal is the dirtiest fossil fuel in existence. Mining, shipping, and burning it has have major health, environmental, and climate impacts. The weather disasters from climate disruption such wildfires, floods, droughts, and the typhoon in the Philippines kill many people, cause much suffering, and impact the economies of the affected areas very negatively. Regulators should take all these human and economic considerations into account when designing their scope of review.

Thank you for accepting comments on this important proposal.

Sincerely, Wallace
