It is with great concern for the environment that I write to ask your opposition tithe bulk terminal. We need to keep our resources in America. It is bad enough that corporations have shipped out jobs over seas. Now they want to ship non renewable resources to China too. This country needs that coal for the unforeseen future. There may come a day that the shortage for fissile fuels severely outpaces any new green technology out there and the technology exists to make this coal into a clean fuel when the price of oil gets higher which it will by 2020. By then we will be shipping cheap coal to China too to help fuel their war on our economy. Let's use that land to make things not ship resources and opertunities over seas. For every log truck driver or coal train car sent to China a dozen jobs that use to be in America go to.
