The environmental study should move forward in a timely manner. Please allow me to provide my comments in regards to the draft EIS.
I support Millennium Bulk Terminals site in Cowlitz County. These trains are no different than the coal cars we’ve transported through our state for many decades. In reality, not one ton more of coal will be used globally because of U.S. exports, and the net gain in greenhouse gas emissions is insignificant. If we don’t build these terminals, energy suppliers will just look elsewhere for their supply!
Please do not delay the permitting process any further. It is important to get people back to work. There are good jobs on the line and waiting on your review.
