Submission Text
The world needs coal and it might as well come from the United States. We have the resources and Millennium Bulk Terminals has a plan to make it happen at Longview. Please support the environmental study. Isn’t an EIS supposed to study the environmental impacts above and beyond what exists today? The old Reynolds site, where Millennium is located, has already been paved, piped and pulled carbon around for 70 years. The permits for this coal export facility were submitted over 4 years ago. Surely it can’t take much more time to conduct this environmental review.It’s an existing industrial site and it should not take another 70 years to get a permit for redevelopment. This is an old industrial property being redeveloped. Keep the review to what is normal and factual.
