The DEIS neglects to mention the inconvenient fact that the coal doesn't just magically appear in Washington but rather is transported through MY community in Montana. The railroad bisects hundreds of towns and cities here and in Idaho on its way to Washington. The tracks run adjacent to small neighborhoods, schools, churches and medical facilities. This seems to be a peculiar and glaring omission! The NO ACTION ALTERNATIVE is the only rational way to arrive at a conclusion. Health and public safety are paramount and should not be eclipsed by profit motives.
