Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the draft EIS for this extremely important project. I have been waiting for this opportunity for a very long time, and having now reviewed the draft EIS, I can see why it has taken so long. You have taken an unnecessarily broad scope and studied each aspect of it to death. Basic economic principles already tells us that not one ton more of coal will be used globally because of exports at Millennium; supply routes have no effect on demand. Keep it realistic. Keep it local. It is important that the public have the ability to comment on projects of this nature as the affects will last for years to come. Thank you for the opportunity to comment and please see that this project is worthy and should be allowed progress forward and develop.
