Submission Text
The Millennium Bulk Terminals will bring jobs and stability to Cowlitz County. Export projects can easily contribute to the economic recovery of this nation and this project is ready to make that happen. This draft EIS is exhaustive and quite frankly, overreaching. For instance, because the proposal is a terminal proposal, the use of the bulk commodity by a third party is a superseding and intervening cause to the combustion of coal. As a result of these superseding causes, the construction and operation of the terminal is not a proximate cause of the combustion of coal. Enough already! Those who care about the environment as well as those who care about jobs can get behind this project. Thank you for allowing me to comment and please don't delay in moving forward on Millennium’s application.
