Subject: Docket number 2013-19738: Comment on scope of EIS for Millennium Bulk Terminals Longview LLC Coal Export Terminal
Dear Army Corps of Engineers, Washington Department of Ecology, and Cowlitz County officials:
a person of faith, I strongly oppose the construction of a coal export
terminal at Longview, WA and transporting coal on trains and ships
throughout the Northwest. This proposal would negatively impact my
community by increasing congestion and noise with more coal train
traffic, polluting our air and waterways, harming existing businesses,
and delaying emergency responders. It would also damage aquatic
ecosystems and fishing grounds at the terminal site, increase tanker
traffic and the potential for shipping accidents and spills, expand
strip-mining in Montana and Wyoming, and escalate climate change. I urge
you to consider these impacts in the scope of the Environmental Impact
Our faith requires that we be good stewards of God’s creation. Shipping coal through Washington communities to be burned in China goes against religious values of stewardship, sustainability, and justice.
Thank you for fully considering the impacts of this proposal.
