Please choose the No-Action alternative on the coal terminal and a New-Action plan for clean-energy jobs for the people of Longview and Cowlitz County.
A recent economic study estimated that a transition to clean energy will add 1 million jobs in the U.S. by 2030, increase U.S. GDP, increase household disposable income by $350-$400,and save families $5.3 billion on energy bills. (source: http://nextgenamerica.org/blog/our-clean-energy-economy)
Please consider a BOTH-AND solution, which both creates job and protects the environment.
