Oct 1, 2013

Director Elaine Placido 207 4th Ave. N. Kelso, WA 98626

Dear Director Placido,

Please accept these scoping comments for the environmental impact statement for the Millennium Bulk Terminal (MBTL) proposal for Longview, WA.

No coal exports in the gorge! I am not convinced that it will offer that many jobs. What it will do is put miles and miles of precious scenic land in peril. And for what? The coal is being exported to Asian markets that will not even supply our country with fuel. It is a no win any way you look at it.The winners will be the coal companies, one international. We are the ones who live here and we are the ones who care and we are the ones who will suffer the consequences when things go wrong.

Sincerely,

Ms. Catherine Dorner 11200 NE Modaffari Rd Carlton, OR 97111-9533
