Submission Text
Americans urgently need jobs and Millennium Bulk Terminals is ready to provide them. Please approve a reasonable response for the environmental study and help get Americans back to work. This draft EIS is sufficient and it is time to move forward. We (Americans) take readily available power for granted, and unlike the rest of the US that relies on coal for electrical power, in the northwest we take hydropower for granted. The majority of countries in the world do not have continuous and reliable power, and if they do it is usually coal power. A sense of balance should be made when looking at the environmental impacts verses the worldwide health, social and economic benefits of coal based power. The growing worldwide trade market needs an accessible, dependable, and conscientious facility to conduct business. I appreciate the planning Millennium Bulk Terminals has exhibited in its proposal for the project in Longview and wish to thank the agencies for its consideration in moving this project forward. Please, keep Americans working. We need oil and coal jobs to keep our country running.
