Submission Text
Although this is a Washington location, the coal trains would need to run through the Columbia Gorge, which belongs to both states. The damage to be done with coal dust and a potential accident is too great to risk for a project which does not benefit our region or the people who live here. Climate change is the biggest risk facing the region, and projects which support the use of fossil fuels, as this one does, are no longer appropriate as we plan our future. I ask that you decide on the No Action Alternative in the EIS. Thank you.
