We need to be moving away from coal - a dirty fuel. I do not support expanding facilities in this state (or country) to extract, transport and export this hazardous material. The air in Asia is already polluted enough. We are all on the same planet, regardless. In addition, I am concerned with the dust and pollutants from coal trains. We do not need more coal trains passing through our communities. I live about a mile from a rail line, very busy already with coal trains. I tell my grandkids to hold their breath while we are waiting for one to pass - but, that is not the answer. We need less coal in use -- not more.
