I’ve been following this issue, and am glad to have the chance to weigh in. 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. We hear a lot of opinions about coal, but the reality of the Millennium Project is that it will have state-of-the-art equipment and best of all will bring life back to a site that has been left stagnant for some time. Many of us would love to have the opportunity to spend our entire career in one place. Millennium is offering that to us. Why not take advantage?
