Submission Text
Fossil fuels are killing our planet, and coal is the worst. Any jobs this misguided and mistaken coal terminal might provide will be far too few. Instead, let's keep it in the ground while supporting renewable, sustainable and cleaner forms of energy such as wind and solar. Global warming and climate change are wreaking havoc on our environment and atmosphere at an alarming, accelerating rate that makes the extraction, transport and burning of fossil fuels, especially coal, something that only fools would do. To go on at any greater length is to participate in a deadly charade pitting survival of life as we know it on planet earth against dark forces motivated by insane greed. There are people who are sick and tired of this crazy coal terminal nonsense and who are willing to block the trains to stop this craziness. I know because I am one of them. Expect me if this coal terminal is okayed.
