Submission Text
Exporting coal from the proposed terminal would mean a significant increase in the number of coal trains traveling through the Gorge, through environmentally sensitive areas, as well as through NE Portland. very close to densely populated areas. All it would take is one train to derail to cause a major disaster. These exports would not benefit anyone in this area, but we would bear the burden of threats to our safety, our health, and environmental destruction. Please do not approve the construction of this terminal.
