Please accept my comments on Millennium Bulk Terminals Longview DEIS. I approve of this project and would like to see its quick implementation. Current world markets and decision in East Asia re capital allocation over the last decade demonstrate that American coal exports are not necessary to, nor causally-related to, decisions in China, Korea or Japan to build coal-fueled power generation capacity. The environmental impacts will occur regardless of Cowlitz County and Ecology decisions to grant permits for construction of the project-specific docks and terminals in question. This DEIS is being finely crafted. The progress this port represents should not be hampered. It's time to get folks back to work!
