Submission Text
I am writing to urge you to deny any permitting for the Millenium Bulk Terminal. The draft EIS shows us threat moving 44 million tons of coal and stockpiling it along the Columbia River has significant public and environmental impacts which can not be mitigated. In a time when we want to reduce carbon impacts to allow this project to be built is irresponsible. This project has significant unavoidable impacts from toxic coal dust, diesel emissions, greenhouse gas emissions to traffic delays. It must not be allowed to move forward. Thank you for the opportunity to comment, Pam Borso
