Submission Text
Our environment is important to our quality of life, but equally important is the ability to make a living. The proposed coal export terminal in Cowlitz County will strike the right balance between environmental stewardship and economic growth. It should be allowed to move forward. Ultimately, global warming and the impact of fossil fuels on the environment are national government and international government issues and did not need to be studied in this DEIS. Now that it’s done, let’s move on to the final EIS! Millennium Bulk Terminals EIS should be thorough but held to the same standards as any other port proposal. We need to do everything we can to strengthen and grow the economy of Washington and the west in general. The project proposed will do just that. Thank you.
