Submission Text
I would like to contribute to the public commentary on the Longview port proposal and voice my support. Please support this proposal and help get this project moving. Current world markets and decision in East Asia re capital allocation over the last decade demonstrate that American coal exports are not necessary to, nor causally-related to, decisions in China, Korea or Japan to build coal-fueled power generation capacity. The environmental impacts will occur regardless of Cowlitz County and Ecology decisions to grant permits for construction of the project-specific docks and terminals in question. The agencies are doing a great job of evaluating Millennium Bulk Terminals port proposal. I am convinced that this project’s permit should move forward without further delay.
